Psalm 119:89-176

Doing a Chronological read-through is HARD.  It shouldn’t be.  It’s not that time-consuming if you think about it.  It is about making it a priority.  So if you have been reading with me for 152 days, I am so proud of you. ❤️  I warn you though, doing a “bible study” (book or workbook) won’t be the same.  You will know more than the leader of the group now.  You are “bible study wrecked’ (what a great place to be.)

Look for patterns that YOU see.  If one word catches your eye over and over, God is talking to you.  I will put my “Word” in the comments so that you don’t see it when you read and you see your own word.  But notice that Psalm 119 is about His Word:

There are eight different terms referring to the Word of God throughout the psalm: lawtestimoniespreceptsstatutescommandmentsjudgmentsword, and ordinances. In almost every verse, the Word of God is mentioned. Psalm 119 affirms not only the character of the Scriptures, but it affirms that God’s Word reflects the very character of God Himself. Notice these attributes of God in Psalm 119:

1. Righteousness (verses 7, 62, 75, 106, 123, 138, 144, 160, 164, 172)
2. Trustworthiness (verse 42)
3. Truthfulness (verses 43, 142, 151, 160)
4. Faithfulness (verse 86)
5. Unchangeableness (verse 89)
6. Eternality (verses 90,152)
7. Light (verse 105)
8. Purity (verse 140)

I keep going back to verse 9:

How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
    By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.

How can we put it into our hearts if we don’t read it?

Read slow today.  Feel free to comment 😁.

    1. It’s so true. Often I listen to the reading before I read it. I have “attention issues”. If you met me in person you would laugh and say “no kidding”. Listening to it THEN. reading it keeps me from skimming (also attention medication helps 😂)

  1. A few of you mentioned next year. I would be very interested in possibly forming a group where we meet on Zoom (since we all live in different states) and talk about the reading once a week. I have like 100 questions I am afraid to ask in writing. I was on a Zoom with a small group the other week I had never met. They meet weekly to discuss it. They asked me 10 questions, I think I only knew 2 of the answers. I love that!
