Blessed is the Word, ז
What do we do as a practice? What defines all that we do? Read Psalm 119:49-56.
Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. The arrogant mock me unmercifully, but I do not turn from your law. I remember, Lord , your ancient laws, and I find comfort in them. Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law. Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge. In the night, Lord , I remember your name, that I may keep your law. This has been my practice: I obey your precepts.
Psalms 119:49-56 NIV
After all that is written about the Word of God, we see that the psalmist goes on to say that his practice, or his custom, is to obey God’s Word. What is our practice? Do we stay focused on all that God has for us? Is it our custom to be focused on God’s Word? Only through God’s Word will we be focused on all that God has for us every day.
