    Every experience man is going through in life is in the word of God and God has made a way of escape through His word. The entrance of His word giveth light. God's Word is light to all situations.

    To Katapalca - I think maybe the 'consistency' of David's references to the word, law, judgments in almost every verse in this whole Psalm is what you were referring when you said, "..... always turning to the word ..... ? It's a GREAT Ps., isn't it? I'm sure very few people notice the consistency character of it. I did just now as I re-read it just before sending you this.

    Psalms 119:2, that prayer is our main source of communication between Heaven and Earth. We must study Gods word to learn of him so that eventually it is planted in our heart so that it becomes a part of our everyday life. Prayer is the medicine to remain on track with God.

    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.
  • Irene123
    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.
