August 5 Scripture Selection: Psalm 119-120

Food for Thought: Ps. 119:105

Psalm 119 can be summarized by one short phrase: the great value of God’s Word. Divided into sections, each first word beginning with a Hebrew letter in alphabetical order, it explains the priceless benefits for the one who follows the Word. Knowing and following God’s Word as the utmost authority in your life produces many blessings and avoids innumerable hardships. That’s why reading it and meditating on it daily, making it a part of who you are, is essential for a healthy, prosperous Christian life.

All you need to do is consult the Word and decide by faith to live by it, as the psalmist declared that he did. Second Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” You can count on it to keep you on course and equip you for everything you need in your daily walk.

When you realize that consulting the Word helps direct you in your decisions and lead you in the right way, you will find yourself totally dependent on it for your everyday life, and that is the best position to be in. As you apply it to your life out of love for your Father and for mankind, the Word does, indeed, become a lamp to your feet and a light to your path for maximum benefits in your life and the lives of those you are in contact with.
