Did you know the book of the Bible with the most verses is Psalms? And the longest chapter in the Bible is Psalm 119. The subject of Psalm 119? The Bible. It’s a looooong chapter in the word of God…reflecting on, the word of God. Sound lame? If so, you haven’t truly discovered the power and wonder of the Bible! I just grabbed 10 verses that encouraged my love for the Bible from Psalm 119, and copied and pasted below. I could’ve posted a lot more but didn’t know how many you’d read 😜. If you like what you see, bust out your Bible and read it!
As you read the psalmist talking about the greatness of the word of God, ask yourself: how has this been true for me and my time/experience in the word? And if it hasn’t been your experience, why not? Now would be a great time to begin enjoying all that God has for us in His word!
