Psalms 119

This month’s web message comes from the desk of Pastor William James Coleman, by way of his daughter, Julia R. Reece, and with the blessings of Pastor George Washington.


Paul advised Timothy to study so that he could rightly divide the Word of Truth and not be ashamed (II Timothy 2:15), but Moses told Joshua that if he would keep God’s Word and meditate on it day and night and then do what it says (be obedient), then he would prosper and have good success (Joshua 1:8).

Psalms 119 offers some special benefits of spending time in God’s Word. Chuck Swindoll has sought out one truth from each of the 22 divisions of this Psalm. Please read each of these verses, write them out in your notebook, and refer to them from time to time when you get tired of reading and studying your Bible daily. (Note that Psalms 119 is divided into 22 sections, each having 8 verses.)
