What is that Book you are holding?

Psa 119:97 O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

In this 119th psalm, the longest chapter in the Bible, which is broken into 176 verses, we see the Word of God referred to in many terms.

The first 48 verses each have a reference, then, once again, from vs 50 to 89. After that only verses 121, 122, 123 and 132 do not reference God's Word. Amazing!

I list now those references for you:
*The Law of the Lord
*His Testimonies
*His Ways
*Thy Precepts
*Thy Statutes
*Thy Commandments
*Thy Righteous Judgments
*Thy Word
*Thy Wondrous Works
*Thine Ordinances
*The Truth

These synonyms of the Word show forth the character of what God has given us. The entire chapter teaches us the effect of God's Word in the life of the believer.

It behooves the child of God to never stray from the Book. It should always be consulted, obeyed, memorized, practiced, lived, loved and preached.

Have you read it today?
