Psalm 119:97 - Meditation That Leads to Life Eternal.

Psalm 119:97 (NIV) Oh, how I love your law! 
I meditate on it all day long.  


All You Need
   As the head coach of the Green Bay 
Packers, Vince Lombardi would start his training 
camps by holding up a football and saying, 
Gentlemen, this is a football. 
   Then he would take the professional 
players through the basics of football. He treated 
them like blank slates, as though theyd never 
heard any of it before. 
   As Christians, we can lose sight of the 
basics as well. We may find ourselves losing ground 
instead of gaining ground as we fall back into old 
sins that we thought were a part of our past. And 
we can suffer defeat. 
   So we need to go back to the very 
beginning. If we want to be growing Christians, then we 
must read, study, and love the Word of God. 
   Joshua 1:8 says, This Book of the Law 
shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall 
meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to 
do according to all that is written in it. For 
then you will make your way prosperous, and then 
you will have good success (NKJV). 
   A growing believer will be a lover of 
Gods Word. The psalmist wrote, Oh, how I love 
Your law! It is my meditation all the day 
(Psalm 119:97 NKJV). 
   The Victorian-era Scottish preacher 
Alexander MacLaren said, He who has the Holy Spirit 
in his heart and the Scripture in his hands has 
all he needs. 
   We can find everything we need to know 
about God in the pages of the Bible. So if you 
want to know God, then you need to open, read, 
study, and apply what the Bible teaches. 
   Success or failure in the Christian life 
is determined by how much of the Word of God we 
get into our lives on a regular basis and how 
obedient we are to it. [Greg Laurie from Harvest

For Every Season
   Sometimes Im asked what my favorite 
Bible verse is. Its kind of a hard question to 
answer, because I have a lot of favorite verses. A 
lot depends on what I'm going through at the 
   For instance, if Im in a difficult and 
worrisome situation, I suppose my favorite verses are 
Philippians 4:6"7: Dont worry about anything; 
instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you 
need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you 
will experience Gods peace, which exceeds 
anything we can understand. His peace will guard your 
hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus 
   Then again, if things aren't making sense 
or seem a bit chaotic, my favorite Scripture 
verse at that moment is John 14:1, where Jesus 
said, Let not your heart be troubled; you 
believe in God, believe also in Me (NKJV). 
   When things are not making sense, Romans 
8:28 is absolutely my go-to verse: And we know 
that all things work together for good to those 
who love God, to those who are the called 
according to His purpose (NKJV). 
   Overall, if I had to choose just one 
verse, then Jeremiah 29:11 is my favorite:  
For I know the thoughts that I think toward 
you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not 
of evil, to give you a future and a hope  
   If God had simply said, I know this 
single thought that I had about you for a 
nanosecond, I would be happy with that, wouldnt 
you? But that is not what God says. He said, I 
know the thoughts that I think toward you 
(emphasis added). Theyre not singular but plural. 
Theyre present tense and future tense. God is at 
work in our lives, and He has a plan and a 
purpose. [Greg Laurie from Harvest Ministries; 


   In the new birth the heart is brought 
into harmony with God, as it is brought into 
accord with His law. When this mighty change has 
taken place in the sinner, he has passed from 
death unto life, from sin unto holiness, from 
transgression and rebellion to obedience and loyalty. The 
old life of alienation from God has ended; the 
new life of reconciliation, of faith and love, 
has begun. Then "the righteousness of the law" 
will "be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the 
flesh, but after the Spirit." Romans 8:4. And the 
language of the soul will be: "O how love I Thy law! 
it is my meditation all the day." Psalm 119:97. 
   "The law of the Lord is perfect, 
converting the soul." Psalm 19:7. Without the law, men 
have no just conception of the purity and 
holiness of God or of their own guilt and 
uncleanness. They have no true conviction of sin and feel 
no need of repentance. Not seeing their lost 
condition as violators of God's law, they do not 
realize their need of the atoning blood of Christ. 
The hope of salvation is accepted without a 
radical change of heart or reformation of life. Thus 
superficial conversions abound, and multitudes are 
joined to the church who have never been united to 
Christ. {GC 468} 


When we speak of faith, there is a 
distinction that should be borne in mind. There is a 
kind of belief that is wholly distinct from 
faith. The existence and power of God, the truth of 
His word, are facts that even Satan and his 
hosts cannot at heart deny. The Bible says that 
"the devils also believe, and tremble;" but this 
is not faith. James 2:19. Where there is not 
only a belief in God's word, but a submission of 
the will to Him; where the heart is yielded to 
Him, the affections fixed upon Him, there is 
faith - faith that works by love and purifies the 
soul. Through this faith the heart is renewed in 
the image of God. {SC 63.2}
