November 19, 2021 – Psalms 116-120

Just these quick thoughts from today’s psalms . . . “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Oh let Israel say, ‘His lovingkindness is everlasting.’ Oh let the house of Aaron say, ‘His lovingkindness is everlasting.’ Oh let those who fear the Lord say, ‘His lovingkindness is everlasting’” (18:1-4). Over and over again, my experience tells me this is so. His lovingkindness is everlasting!


In the longest of the psalms, the psalmist shares his delight in the Word of God. And he tells us the importance of God’s Word in our everyday lives: “Your word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against you” (119:11). Stay in the Word and stay in the path of righteousness. The psalmist could not say it much better than that, though, P. P. Bliss, in the nineteenth century, did a pretty good job of relaying the sentiment of the psalmist.


Sing them over again to me,

Wonderful words of life;

Let me more of their beauty see,

Wonderful words of life;

Words of life and beauty

Teach me faith and duty.

Beautiful words, wonderful words,

Wonderful words of life;

Beautiful words, wonderful words,

Wonderful words of life. -- P. P. Bliss (1874)
