April 19, 2021 – Psalms 117-121

The shortest and longest Psalms (and chapters in the Bible) in today’s reading: Psalms 117 & 119. How about that! Psalms 117 and 118 are a couple of the “his steadfast love endures forever” psalms. And one of the most important ways God’s love toward us is displayed is the giving of his Word to us. Psalm 119 is a long testimony regarding God’s law, his Word. Repeatedly, the psalmist testifies of his love for God’s Word.

  • “Your testimonies are my delight; they are my counselors” (119:24).

  • “I find my delight in your commandments, which I love” (119:47).

  • “Let your mercy come to me, that I may live; for your law is my delight” (119:77).

  • “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (119:103)

  • “I love your commandments above gold, above fine gold” (119:127).

  • “I rejoice at your word like one who finds great spoil” (119:162).

Charles Spurgeon noted, “The word of God is always most precious to the man who lives most upon it.” Lesson? Live in the Word and it will become more and more precious to me. How important it is that we stay there, in God’s Word! Like tasting something sweet and delicious, to taste God’s Word is to want more and more of it. Let me continue quoting from P. P. Bliss’ hymn.


Christ the blessed One, gives to all wonderful words of life

Sinner, list to the loving call

Wonderful words of life

Oh, so freely given, wooing us to heaven

Beautiful words, wonderful words

Wonderful words of life

Beautiful words, wonderful words

Wonderful words of life.

May I, today, simply quote the 23rd Psalm and let it serve as my complete thoughts on these psalms?  I mean (as we can say about so many other Bible texts), once read and meditated upon, what else can
