Psalm 119:97-104 The Message (MSG)

 

In our passage today, the psalmist is praising God in song for giving him great wisdom that brought change into his life.  Applying God’s Word has helped this child of Light take authority—gain an edge—over his enemies rather than his enemies taking dominion over him. As he applies and “absorbs” the Word, he finds himself insightful beyond human knowledge.  In response to God’s direction, the psalmist uses obedience and self-control to avoid the traps of evil.  Therefore, true life was laid before him and he could tell the difference when the lies of the enemy came calling. Spend time in the Word of God, because it will prepare you for life.

 

Psalm 119: 97-104 

Oh, how I love all you’ve revealed;

    I reverently ponder it all the day long.

Your commands give me an edge on my enemies;

    they never become obsolete.

I’ve even become smarter than my teachers

    since I’ve pondered and absorbed your counsel.

I’ve become wiser than the wise old sages

    simply by doing what you tell me.

I watch my step, avoiding the ditches and ruts of evil

    so I can spend all my time keeping your Word.

I never make detours from the route you laid out;

    you gave me such good directions.

Your words are so choice, so tasty;

    I prefer them to the best home cooking.

With your instruction, I understand life;

    that’s why I hate false propaganda.

 

Prayer:  Lord, thank you for this beautiful psalm that helps me remember the value of allowing you to bring change into my life.  As I obey, I feel the change in so many positive ways.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
