Pocket Sized Thoughts – Psalm 119 – Part 12

Psalm 119:129-144 “The entrance of Your words gives light” (v.130)

Here is a declaration of the powerful effect of the Word of God in our lives, which can give both light and understanding. The real key is for the His Word to enter. We must not hear only, but receive it and make it wholly ours. As understanding comes, the Word will order our lives aright, ensuring that no sin has dominion over us (v.133 – see also Romans 6:14). Pray that the Lord would honour us, but also keep us humble in mourning that we do not better obey His Word (v.136). True tears of repentance can lead us into better things (Psalm 42:3). The Word of God is pure having been severely tested repeatedly in history. It is upright, faithful and eternal; it gives strength, hope and stability in every trial of life (v.143 – compare 2 Corinthians 6:9,10).

PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you that Your word gives light in the darkest hours.”
