Psalm 119 – Part 6A

Open Bible pic-widePSALM 119:41
  Hebrew UVW-Vav (Vav or Waw)

41 Let your steadfast love come to me, O Lord, your salvation
according to your promise;

42
then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, for I trust in your word.
43
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in your rules.
44 I will keep your law continually, forever and ever,
45
and I shall walk in a wide place, for I have sought your precepts.
46
I will also speak of your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame,
47
for I find my delight in your commandments, which I love.
48 I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love,
and I will meditate on your statutes.

Psalm 119:41-48, ESV
 

Once again in our study today we understand how much of a place the Psalmist gave to God’s Word. What about your life? In these studies has your hunger for God’s Word increased? I trust that it has.

It’s interesting that the Psalmist starts out in this stanza by calling for God’s steadfast love and salvation. God’s love for man—for you and I—hasn’t changed since Creation. It was out of God’s love that He blessed Adam and Eve in the beginning. Once they sinned, God continued to work in the earth helping man to see and understand His great love for him. You can’t deny God’s love. You can choose not to accept it, but you can’t deny that God loves you. He’s provided restoration and restored fellowship for everyone because of His love. And this love is declared throughout the Bible:

Psalm 86:15: “But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious….abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.”
John 3:16
: ”For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son….”
Romans 5:8: “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.”
1 John 4:9-10: “In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent His only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him…”
John 14:23:
“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him,
and make our abode with him.”

Once you get a revelation of God’s love for you, you won’t be able to contain it, and His love letter (His Word) will mean even more to you.
