Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 119:101

  • In verse 100 we ended with the statement that obedience is the proving grounds to one faith and that is is absolutely essential. In verse 101 David is modeling that principle by refraining his feet from evil. We make choices every day that effect our walk with God in one way or another. Walking with God is not an after thought but rather a raging battle that wars in our souls. There is a constant conflict that we are faced with to pull is off the righteous path, and by nature we are prone to wander. If one will walk with God, it will be a determined resolve or it just will not happen.
