Psalm 119:49-52, “Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. The arrogant mock me unmercifully, but I do not turn from your law. I remember, Lord, your ancient laws, and I find comfort in them.”
Almost every single verse in Psalm 119 revolves around God’s Word. Today’s passage reminds us of the hope we find in the Scripture. When life starts to swirl around us, when the circumstances of life seem way too big, when things seem hopeless, reading the Bible can fill us with hope for a much brighter future. In the end, He wins, so every believer wins.
His promises are filled with life. When we open the Book, it’s as if He breathes His very breath into us and it is refreshing and strengthening and life giving.
When hard times come and the world seems to turn against us, we can find comfort in God’s Word.
Hope, life, comfort, why would we turn anywhere else?
Father, thank You so much for all that Your Word speaks to me.
