Psalm 119:1-88 gives benefits of God’s Word.
There are many benefits to God’s Word. Here are a few listed in Psalm 119:1-88.
God’s Word gives us wise advice.
Psalm 119:24 says, “Your laws please me; they give me wise advice.” There’s advice on every topic.
God’s Word encourages us.
When we are in need of encouragement, it seems the Bible has just the right words for the moment.
Psalm 119:50 says, “Your promise revives me. It comforts me in all my troubles.”
God’s Word gives us hope.
Psalm 119:43 says, “Do not snatch your word of truth from me, for your regulations are my only hope.”
Psalm 119:49 says, “Remember your promise to me. It is my only hope.”
God’s Word is trustworthy.
Psalm 119:86 says, “All your commands are trustworthy.”
The promises we find in God’s Word can be trusted. The shepherds on the night of Jesus’ birth can serve as an example for us. According to Luke 2, the shepherds trusted the angel’s word and went to find Jesus. They found the baby, his mother, and everything just as the angel had said it would be. God’s Word is trustworthy.
Hiding God’s Word in our hearts has many benefits. May we echo the desire of the Psalmist in always keeping God’s Word close to us using it as the compass to guide our lives.
