The tiny Psalms 117 followed by Psalms 118 complete the Hallel, which we have been studying since the holidays. These words culminate the high praise of Psalms used by Jews to commemorate their holiest times of worship… and the words Jesus sang in the upper room. In particular today, we see value of the steadfast love of God! Is it possible to be loved in a way that is unconditional, and unending? Yes.

An Encouraging Word
March 8, 2020 • Pastor Jeff Beckett • Psalms
Today we seek to tackle three more stanzas of Psalms 119. Some of the most beautiful passages of the Hebrew Psalms book reside in our three stanzas today. Today’s words are designed to bring you encouragement. Words can help or words can harm. The child of God should know the difference, which is often not found in the truthfulness of the words, but in the right application of them!
The Lord is My Portion!

Today’s eighth stanza of Psalms 119 begins with the awesome phrase, “the Lord is my portion.” It is such a simple statement of fact that it eludes the attention it deserves. What does it mean to have the Lord as your portion? It means that you have become fully satisfied in God, a relationship that must be maintained through His precious word. It is the very essence of the words of Jesus, who told Satan, “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (KJV) So how does a flesh and blood person “live by the words of God?” Let’s examine further Psalms 119.
A Better Word From Above

Today we will tackle three stanzas in the middle of Psalms 119. These stanzas highlight the necessity of making God’s Word a part of your daily regimen. You have been called to think and live differently than the rest of the world, but how can you accomplish that? The world will not give you that blueprint, but the word will and does!
