Psalm 119:92 – If Your Law had not been My Delight…

Today’s Reading: Daniel 2:24‐3:30, 1 Peter 4:7‐5:14, Psalm 119:81‐96, Proverbs 28:15‐16

Context: Psalm 119 speaks of the benefits of meditating on and applying the Bible.  Only three of the Psalms 176 verses do not contain a direct reference to the written Word of God.

Psalm 119:92  “If your law had not been my delight,
I would have perished in my affliction.”

Observations:

  • If your law had not been my delight (it was)
    • I would have perished in my affliction (I didn’t)

These words imply that when God’s Law is my delight, I will not perish in my affliction.  The last year has contained difficult times for my family.  This verse, and all Psalm 119, shows me how to make it through.

Apply:  I want to spend time today “delighting” in the law of God.  I want to meditate on it, continue to work on memorizing it and look for ways to practice it.

Do you fee like you are perishing in your affliction?  In what ways can you delight in God’s Word?
