Today is a day to honor our military for the sacrifice that they have made for us as a nation to live in freedom. Many who gave their lives and many others who have suffered the scars of war, we honor you today! Thank You!
Psalms 119 is the longest chapter in the entire Bible and is exactly in the middle of the Bible! The theme of Psalm 119; is the importance of the Word of God in our lives.
Psalm 119: 1-8 tells us; “ BLESSED are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in His ways! You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently. Oh that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statues! Then I shall not be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all your commandments. I will praise you with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous rules. I will keep your statues; do not utterly forsake me! Psalm 119: 1-8
How important is the Word of God to our lives? How is our daily time in the Word of God? God’s Word is important if we want to be blessed by God. We are told that we should not just be hearers of the Word, but be doers of the Word.
Look at the some of the instructions in these verses:
• Blessed are those who live blameless!

• Blessed are those who KEEP his testimonies!
• Blessed are those who SEEK HIM with their whole heart. We cannot do this without the Word of God!
• Blessed are those who do no wrong, but walk (live) in His ways!

The Word of God is vital to being blessed by the Lord in our lives, families, church and in our city!
