Psalm 119 – ein Lese-Festmahl

Ein wunderschöner Post von Kevin DeYoung zu Psalm 119. Dieser Psalm ist wahrlich ein Lese-Festmahl!

The Psalmist believed God’s word was true (Psalm 119: 42, 89, 96, 142, 160). He knew the Scriptures demanded what was right (Psalm 119:75, 86, 128, 137) and provided what was good (Psalm 119:1, 2, 6, 9, 24, 98-100, 105, 130). He delighted in God’s word (Psalm 119: 14, 24, 47, 70, 77, 103, 111, 129, 143, 174). He desired God’s word (Psalm 119:5, 10, 17, 20, 27, 29, 33-35, 40, 131, 135, 169). He depended on God’s word (Psalm 119:31, 50, 52). In other words, the Psalmist believed what we should believe about the word and felt what we should feel about the word.

And notice what happened as a result. When all this underground pressure of believing and feeling explode on to the surface it makes a splash. Our thoughts and our affections concerning the word of God can’t help but burst forth as a geyser of Spirit-led activity.

So what do Christians do when they believe and feel about the word of God rightly?

1. They sing (Psalm 119:172). 2. They speak (Psalm 119:13, 46, 79). 3. They study (Psalm 119:15, 48, 97, 148). 4. They store up (Psalm 119:11, 16, 83, 93, 148). 5. They obey the word (Psalm 119: 8, 44, 57, 129, 145, 146, 167, 168). 6. They praise God (Psalm 119:7, 62, 164, 171). 7. They pray for help (Psalm 119: 36, 58, 121-23, 147, 149-52, 153-60, 175-76).
