Psalm 119:105-112 (3:04)

by Jason Silver (played 8 times)

 

It's kind of hard to appreciate how much "the law" is loved in Psalm 119. It goes against my instincts, this love of law.

Whether it's statutes, commandments, ordinances, precepts, or decrees, it seems like the Psalmist is really obsessed with rules! I can not relate.

However, one must take note that the rules of God are not like any other directive. Consider how Jesus summed up all the law: to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and to love our neighbours as ourselves!

These are laws motivated by love! Their purpose is to bring us long-life, happiness, comfort, and peace with those around us.

Once we fully submit ourselves to the ways of God, we will also see His word as a light, illuminating and guiding us through difficult times!

Amen.

Lyrics

Psalm 119:105-112

Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light unto my path.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light unto my path.

I have sworn an oath
And I've confirmed it,
To observe your righteous laws.
I am severely afflicted;
Give me life, according to your word.

Accept my offerings
My praise, and O Lord,
Teach me all your ordinances.
I take my life in my hands,
But I don't, I don't forget your law.

Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light unto my path.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light unto my path.

The wicked lay a snare
They lay a snare for me,
But I don't stray from your law.
For your decrees are my heritage
for ever; and the joy of my heart.

And I incline my heart
To do your statutes
For ever, and to the end.
And I incline my heart to do
Do your law
Forever, to the end.

Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light unto my path.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light unto my path.
