176 Words on 176 Verses “Remove from me reproach and contempt; For I have kept thy testimonies.”  (Ps 119:22)   There are those who would “live Godly in Christ Jesus” who shall suffer persecution, for this shall apply to all who would do so (2 Tim 3:12).

176 words on 176 Verses. Verse 17 Partakers

176 words on 176 verses “Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, And keep thy word.”  (Ps 119:17)   To think that all the Earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof, to think that not only does it all belong to the Lord but that he gives to whomsoever he will, all are partakers with him. To think again moreover that those who are his own will inherit not only eternal life, though that would suffice me;…

176 Word on 176 Verses. Ps 119:16 Delighted

“I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.”  (Ps 119:16) It is difficult to forget the things we have delighted ourselves in. That which grieves us and makes things difficult in our life, that which causes pain and heartache are all willfully forgotten for none of them are delighted in. But that which brings joy to our hearts and puts a spring in our step and motivates us to forge ahead even in times of…

176 Word on 176 Verses. Ps 119:15 Meditation

176 words on 176 Verses. “I will meditate in thy precepts, And have respect unto thy ways.”  (Ps 119:15) The concept of meditation in the 21st century is one where the mind is to rest upon nothing. The encouragement is for no thought to enter in, to leave the mind with a mental vacuum, divorced from consideration and concern. This, it is thought, will provide rest for the weary soul and revive the energy of the heart. But this meaning…

176 Words on 176 Verses. Ps 119:14

176 words on 176 Verses     Ps 119:14.   “I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, As much as in all riches.” (Ps 119:14) I certainly am numbered with the many who thought to rejoice in riches. It was King Solomon, a man who not only attained to that which I sought but hastened to that end more than any other man (Eccl 2:25), his answer? “All is vanity and vexation of spirit” (Eccl 2:11). Indeed, what I discovered…

176 Words on 176 Verses. Psalm 119:13

176 Words on 176 Verses “With my lips have I declared All the judgments of thy mouth.” Psalm 119:13 It has often been the thought that only a life lived well may speak to the lost of the wonderful works of Christ and about the true joy and hope that we have. That our lives are so just and so pure as to affect in the hearts of others a longing for that which lights our path; but this is…

176 Words on 176 Verses. Psalm 119:12

176 Words on 176 Verses “ Blessed art thou, O Lord: Teach me thy statutes.”  (Ps 119:12) We speak of God as Blessed, and that he is indeed. When asked of Christ to identify himself he was asked precisely if he was “the Son of the Blessed” (Mrk 14:61), there was no doubt of whom they spoke. The Lord is indeed ‘Blessed’, this is not a description of his state of being, or the well doing of his life, but…

What is the truth about…….? Ok, so you’d like to know what the Bible teaches about a certain belief or doctrine in order to perhaps check that which is being taught by your own pastor or church? Well done! My only hope is that you are doing so sincerely and not merely trying to confirm your own presupposition or the position that you have grown up to believe in. The best place to start is first to question your own…

176 Words on 176 Verses, Psalm 119:11

176 words on 176 Verses. “ Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”  (Ps 119:11)  The most assured way to not wander from his commandments is to hide his word in our hearts. But what miracle is this? Can we truly presume that a word hidden in our heart can keep us from sin? We can if that word is Gods own word. We are reminded that all Scripture is given by inspiration…

176 Words on 176 Verses, Psalm 119:10

176 words on 176 Verses. “ With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.”  (Ps 119:10) It is with our heart that we seek after the Lord; it is our heart that rejects God and it is only our heart which believes. The evangelist was asked what it may be that can hinder a man from baptism, his answer “if thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest” (Acts 8:37). Therefore, it is…
