Psalm 119 is the longest book of the Bible and it hold an immense amount of truths. Which is why we will break this chapter up over the next four days.
Relationship with God comes from spending time with Him in His word and in Prayer. And there is no better way to have God close to you that to have His words memorized. Psalm 119:11 says, I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Hidden (keeping) is a perfect way to keeping sin at bay. For this reason we should all be inspired to memorize scripture. But memorizing it alone will not deter sin if we do not put it to work in our lives. This is why we say God’s word is a “living” word. It should be a guide for every day of our lives.
