    I really love Psalm 119 it teaches us that loving the Word of God is a very good thing and will bless us. In stipe of all that David went thru he always turned to the Word.

    Ps. 119:11 - I used to think, up until a couple wks. ago, that this verse referred to just knowing right 'n wrong according to God; but it doesn't; it refers to David knowing the O.T. law - by heart - without looking at. I know this because - I have been told of a couple of pastors that know every word of the WHOLE Bible by heart that are living today. I know there are more than that.

    This is a little off the 'beaten path', but I had to share it; tonight at church a woman asked me who my favorite author was. I said, "God". She said "no, secular books. I said I only read the Bible and books about it. I USED to read secular, but no more. They are SO-O-O boring!! Ps.119:167

    It's a wonderful piece (just as all God's word is) I learned that there are only 4 verses that are not speaking directly to The Lord. They are verses 1 -3, and verse 115. All others are a prayer to The Lord. Also it is an acrostic of the Hebrew alphabet. There are 22 letters in the alphabet and there are 8 verses for each Hebrew alphabet which equals 176. Just a few things I've learned about it!

    This verse of the day has given just another big hope to trust in God in Jesus name.God was for the old Abraham,Isaac,Jacob,Moses,David and others.He is the same God who promised thought the prophets that he will bring his own tosave the world.He is here now and i thank Him for the promises found in His word for He stands with the promise and fulfills.....Amen
