REASONS FROM PSALM 119 TO READ THE BIBLE

 

If we really want to know God, then what better source to go to than His Word where He literally tells us about Himself, what He has been up to, and what He is going to do.  In addition to all that, He teaches us how we fit into all that on an eternal and daily basis.

 

Now, if you really wanted to know the story of Moby Dick inside and out so you could apply radical whaling principles to your life, camping out in chapters 5 and 23-38 would not be the best way to get the whole story.  In fact, you could not get the whole story that way.

 

At this point in time, the point should be poignant and obvious.  Set out on a course to read through the whole Bible.  And by golly there are various ways to do it.  Some folks have already set up “One Year Bibles” that have daily readings.  Another way is to simply use a bookmark.  That way you can do your various Bible studies and reading, but that bookmark brings you right back to where you were (obvious, but true).  Also realize that it probably will take some time to do, and God reveals Himself in every book of the Bible.

 

Reasons from Psalm 119 to Read the Bible:

do not let me stray from your commands.  I have hidden your word in

my heart that I might not sin against you.”

 

Vs. 24              God’s Word is my counselor.  “Your statutes are my delight; they are my

counselors.”

 

Vs. 25              God’s Word renews me.  “I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life

according to your Word.”

 

Vs. 28              God’s Word strengthens me.  “My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen

me according to your Word.”

 

Vs. 42              God’s Word give me answers.  “...then I will answer the one who taunts

me, for I trust in your Word.”

 

Vs. 52              God’s Word comforts me.  “I remember your ancient law, O Lord, and I
