Psalms 119 is one of my favorate psalms if not the most favorate of mine. It is loaded with God’s word, His character, His commands, His wisdom. I can read it over and over and every time get something new. I think every christian should look it up and read it and meditate on it. Yes it is old testiment but we can take the same principles from it and apply it to our lives now. One way I do this, is when the word “Law” comes up I replace it with “Word”. So lets look at Palms 119. Please leave comments on your thoughts of the verses. I would enjoy other peoples perspective.
Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.
– Blessed:Greek word ‘esher means happiness blessedness.
-So Happy are the undefiled. Happy are the ones who have been washed in the Blood of the Lamb. The ones who are in the way. This means the ones that are on the path or road of God. We are on His path and not our own path.
-Happy are the ones who walk in the Word of the Lord. We are not only hearers but we are doers. We do not just read the word and pull the good scriptures out, or the ones we want to believe. But we take the whole council of God. We conform our lives to the scriptures and DO NOT conform the scriptures to our lives. We walk as the Word of God tells us to walk. We talk the way the word of God tells us to talk. We make no excuses for our short comings, but repent and turn from the path that disagrees with the word of God. Walking in the Word is walking the path that the word has set for us to go. This path never changes. Our culture may change, society may change, people’s belief system may change, but the word of God and the path we are to walk will never changes. It was the same 200 years ago as it is today. It was the same 2000 years ago as it is today. We need to fight against the world views on what right and wrong is. The bible warns us with this scripture.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light and, light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
-Do we not have this kind of thinking even in the church today. What was once sin is now not sin. What once was the word of God is now legalism or legalistic. What once was warning a brother or sister of sin is now judging. There are many many examples into days Christianity that fit this scripture. We as followers of the most high God need to go back to His word, and walk in it, and walk His way, no matter what the culture, or the world tells us. We need to make a stand. We need to not defile ourselves in the pollution of the world. We need to saturate our minds with the word of God. It is the only way to defend against the ideals, ways and suggestions of the world, that try to sway us from God. Without God’s word we have no weapon. The enemy wants to take the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God away from us. Lets not let that happen and put on the whole armor of God, and step into the fight that God prepared us for. The enemy is defeated and Christ is the Victor. Praise God and God bless.
