Psalm 119:49

Ronnie W. Wolfe

What good would it do for the Lord to remember his own word if it were not for the benefit of his children and for his ultimate glory? It, of course, would be null and void. So, here the psalmist prays for God's remembrance of his own word to the benefit of the psalmist.

The relationship between God and the believer is brought to bear through the word of God. God's word is the instrument through which God reveals himself to man.

In God we have our trust and our hope; therefore, our hope lies within the pages of God's word, since the word introduces us to more and more information about God, his Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, thus operating upon us a grand scheme to bring about sanctification and holiness manifested more and more in our lives. God is good that way.
