Psalm 119:56

[ 1 minutes to read ]

This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
~ Psalm 119:56

[T]he Psalmist refers to having the blessings in this stanza. He had hope (Psalm 119:49), comfort (Psalm 119:50, 52), and songs to cheer and encourage him (Psalm 119:54). He has remembered the Lord in all his troubles (Psalm 119:52, 55) and been quickened by His Word (Psalm 119:50).

In a few short verses he has enumerated great blessings. These have not been forfeited because he kept the precepts of God. How many times can our struggles, doubts, and fears be traced back to an actual neglecting of God’s Word? Here his hiding of the Word in his heart and his meditating on the Word is bearing fruit in his life.
