Sam Storms- Meditation on Psalm 119, Part 10


Finally, if you’re still tempted to cast aside God’s Word for the sake of worldly gain, consider how he compares the value of God’s word to all earthly treasures:

“The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces” (v. 72; cf. v. 14).

“Therefore I love your commandments above gold, above fine gold” (v. 127).

God’s Word is exquisite, sublime, splendid, and sweet. God’s Word is powerful, faithful, righteous, and true. God’s Word is great, glorious, grand, and good. Why? Because in it we see God! Through it, he draws near! By means of its truth, we experience the incomparable joy of knowing him and seeing him and beholding the beauty of his infinite elegance.

Hear, O Lord, our prayer: “Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law!” (Psalm 119:18).
