Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Psalm 119:97-104 NLT


[97] Oh, how I love your instructions! I think about them all day long.

[98] Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are my constant guide.

[99] Yes, I have more insight than my teachers, for I am always thinking of your laws.

[100] I am even wiser than my elders, for I have kept your commandments.

[101] I have refused to walk on any evil path, so that I may remain obedient to your word.

[102] I haven’t turned away from your regulations, for you have taught me well.

[103] How sweet your words taste to me; they are sweeter than honey.

[104] Your commandments give me understanding; no wonder I hate every false way of life.

  • Constant guidance that makes us wiser than our enemies!
  • Constant consideration which gives insight more than our teachers
  • Constant keeping and putting into practice because that will make us wise
  • Constant obedience because it helps us walk in the right way and teach us

We learn to love God’s Word the more we spend time in it!
