II Timothy 2:9
“Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.”
Regardless of the persecution aimed at us as Christians today, we can be encouraged just as Paul was…”but the word of God is not bound.” The Apostle Paul knew that despite the powers that tried to silence him and the disciples, God’s Word will still work, it will still operate in the hearts of men.
Although this world may try to bind the hands of those proclaiming the Gospel of Christ, the Word of God can never be bound.
Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible which further explains just how much of a priority the Word of God should be in our lives.
The Word of God chapter of the Bible. 176 verses. Giving us at least as many principles to learn about the very Words God chose to give us for us to live by.
In nearly every verse there is at least one Word that refers to the Word of God.
Words referencing the Word of God:
Law of the Lord
When reading through the chapter, make an effort to find the specific Word within the verse that references the Word of God. Among the references are Truths about the Scripture that we can apply to our lives and allow It to encourage us in our walk with the Lord.
The Word of God magnifies Itself. Later on in the Book of Psalms, the Scripture tells us that the Lord magnifies His Word even above His Name.
“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.”
Allow Psalm 119 to broaden your love for the Word. Delight in Him today.
