Verse analysis of Psalm 119:1-8
119:1 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of
May we become the undefiled. May we learn together to walk in the way
of the Law. Blessed may be modernized to read happy. Notice these
Christians are happy to walk in the way of the Lord. They are having
a good time together. When we have a good time in the Lord then we
encourage others to get what we have namely Christ. The greatest
thing that we can forfeit to the Devil is our joy. When we do so we
stop others from wanting what we have.
Is it time for an examination of your own heart? Are there areas in
your life where you are choosing to forfeit your joy to the Lord?
Remembering we loose nothing to the Devil that we do not willingly
forfeit. Ask the Lord to examine your heart and purge you of those
areas of your life where you are not walking with the Lord. If you
have never begun your walk with the Lord please do so now.
119:2 Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him
with the whole heart.
Happy are those who keep the Word with their own hearts. Are there
areas of your life where you are not listening to the Word? Are you
truly seeking him with your whole heart? One way that we do this is
in quiet time. If you are not having an active quiet time I encourage
you to do so now. I have a great friend who used to say she never had
time for a quiet time. This is how she solved her problem. She set
the alarm clock 5 minutes earlier each day for a week. The next week
