As I studied Psalm 119 this morning, I took note of what God's Word is and what it does... And I was amazed by the writer's response. His heart stood in awe of God's Word. He also repeated a number of times how much he loved God's Word. The writer even used the word "exceedingly" to describe his love. He found life and joy, hope and comfort, strength and protection, wisdom and guidance in the Word. He found it "wondrous." He declared it better than great wealth and sweeter than honey to his taste.
On August 17, 2007, I wrote in my journal: "I am thankful for the living Word and its uncanny, supernatural power to give life where there's death, peace where there was turmoil, hope where despair reigned, and clarity of thought where there was confusion." No other book has ever done this for me.
