Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
The Psalmist David was persecuted by by men of rank and authority who ridiculed his beliefs and sought to put him to shame, and make him give up his faith. But he strengthened himself by meditating on the Word of God. God’s Word was his comfort, his prize possession, his rule of life, his resource and strength. So in the 119th Psalm, he writes about the Word of God. It is written as an alphabetical acrostic, each paragraph has eight verses and each line begins with the same letter in the Hebrew alphabet. In it God’s Word is referred to by 10 synonyms; it’s called the law, the word, the sane or promise, commandments, statutes, judgement, precepts, testimonies, way and path.
In brief, the Word of God contains all that the believer needs to be healthy and strong in a world in which we are to shine as lights. But the only way for it to bring health and strength to you – is for you to know it. So let me ask; “How much progress are you making?”
