The Power of God’s Word: Because of What It Is


Psalm 119 - Power of God's Word Psalm 119 has long been a strategic chapter of the Bible for me because it is packed with so much truth about the Word.

Skim through this psalm for descriptive words about Scripture and you will learn much.  (The NASB was used for this study.)

Think through the implications for ministry.

God’s Word is a record of who God is and what He does. — testimony (shows His ways and wonders)

Ministry Workers: Are you pointing people to the God behind all the wonderful Bible stories?  God is the power source behind the parting of the Red Sea, not Moses.  God is the power source behind the slaying of Goliath, not David.  Etc.

God’s Word is a rule for life, a standard to live by. — law, precepts, statutes, commandments, judgments, ordinances, truth

Ministry Workers: Are you remembering that you will be accountable for following God’s ways as recorded in Scripture?  We measure what we do against His Word, not our own or other people’s opinions.

God’s Word is a reliable resource. — truth, righteous, good, faithful, settled in heaven forever, upright, very pure, everlasting

Ministry Workers: Are you lining up what you do with God’s Word rather than the ways of the world or your own thinking?  In the final analysis, only God’s Word is trustworthy, consistent and constant.

With an understanding of what God’s Word is, may our prayer be:

Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law.  (Ps. 119:18)

Make me understand the way of Your precepts, so I will meditate on Your wonders. (Ps. 119:27)

Establish Your word to Your servant, as that which produces reverence for You.  (Ps. 119:38)

And, may our reaction be:

Your testimonies are wonderful; Therefore my soul observes them.  (Ps. 119:129)

  1. I am always impressed at “Thus sayeth God” and I am thankful for people like you all and thank you for your faithfulness. We have an awesome God. One of the men in our church lost his battle with cancer and we had his funeral Sat. morning. He was 53 yrs. old. His daughter is expecting twins. Some long day off he will see them. Some glad morning when this life is over and we see Jesus face to face. Thank you all again!!!

    • You are most welcome, Norma. When we hold steadfast to the truth of God’s Word, we can know with full assurance the realities you spoke of regarding that future day when we will not only be able to see our Savior face to face but also reunite with those who have gone before us. Without that conviction in the truthfulness of God’s Word, what true hope do we have? In the interim we grieve the loss, as I am sure the family of this gentlemen and people of your church are hurting. May your church follow God’s desire, as communicated in His Word, for the church to be there for one another and know that peace of God that passes understanding. Yes, we do have an awesome God!
