A Lamp to My Feet – Psalm 119:1-4

We are in Psalms again this week. 118 chapters after last week’s passage the Psalmist, David, is again speaking to the glory and wonder of the Word of God, His Law. He finds life in God’s Word and cannot help but praise God for what he, and we, have in it.

Last week our verse focused on the mediation that we must do in God’s Word. It is to become something that we seek day and night, something that will make us “like a tree planted by streams of water” (think about that imagery). This week the Psalmist focuses on doing: “walk…keep…seek him…do no wrong…walk in his ways.”

I encourage you to keep Psalm 1:1-3 in mind this week as you study this passage. “On his law he meditates day and night.”

Psalm 119:1-4 (ESV)

Blessed are those whose way is blameless,

who walk in the law of the Lord!

Blessed are those who keep his testimonies,

who seek him with their whole heart,

who also do no wrong,

but walk in his ways!

You have commanded your precepts

to be kept diligently.

Remember to stop by this post again later this week with any thoughts that you might have about this passage. I hope that you approach this “challenge” eagerly and allow these verses to become a part of you.
