Psalm 119:51

Despite All Derision
Ronnie W. Wolfe

The world has believers in derision. The word derision means to talk against arrogantly, to scorn. Here we may remember Psalms 2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

People will speak against us and hate us, as Jesus said in John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  So, don't be surprised when the world hates us.

Our text here in Psalm 119 expressed the attitude of a true  believer in explaining that, though the proud have us in derision, "yet have I not declined from thy law." 

We give up on God's word simply too quickly. We must stay in the word, train in the word, teach the word, and live the word. There should be no excuses for neglecting the word of God in our lives, so pick it up and use it.
