God in some way. Throughout the whole Psalm, David talks about how
amazing God’s word is.
He says it is:
to our feet
word being delightful to him. The two Hebrew words used are: sha’a’
and sha’shua’. Sha’a’ means: to look upon with complacency, pleased
or amused by. Sha’shua’ means: delight, or pleasure.
God’s word is incredibly amazing and delightful, yet I often take it for
granted. Every time I read through Psalm 119 I feel convicted about
not truly treasuring the word of God as much as I should. It’s such
an effective reminder of how incredible and life-giving God’s word
is. Chapter 119 gives me accurate perspective of how I should view
God’s word, and I need that because everything around me is competing
with that perspective.
So I challenge us to read Psalm 119 as
part of our daily quiet times; it takes a few extra minutes to read
through. Reading this chapter at the beginning of our quiet times
reminds us of the value of God’s word and it will help us fight off the
lies of the enemy throughout the rest of our time with God.
