Only when God’s ways are sweet to the taste will sin turn sour in our souls.


Sam Storms’ commentary on Psalm 119, Part 8:

 I referred above to the “sin-killing power” of God’s Word. What the psalmist had in mind by this was the capacity of God’s revealed truth to strengthen us in the face of temptation and to believe his promise of superior joy (cf. Ps. 16:11) when confronted with the passing pleasures of sin. In other words, we find in God’s Word the only reliable remedy against the impulses of the flesh and the temptations of the world (see vv. 9, 11, 36, 37, 104, 105). Only when God’s ways are sweet to the taste will sin turn sour in our souls.
