Psalm 119 (1)

Today we will begin a series of devotions based on Psalm 119. This psalm has more verses than any other chapter in the Bible. If you look at this chapter in a printed Bible, you will see that it is divided into 22 sections. Each section begins with a different letter from the Hebrew alphabet.

Psalm 119:1-2 gives us some important news about obeying God. “Great blessings belong to those who live pure lives! They follow the Lord’s teachings. Great blessings belong to those who follow his rules! They seek him with all their heart.” God blesses us when we obey Him. And following God makes us happy.

The Bible tells us that all people in the world have sinned and disobeyed God. But the writer of this psalm reminds us that God is fair and good. He has given us a way to have our sins forgiven. This way is through His Son, Jesus. Jesus died on the cross so that our sins can be forgiven and we can live forever with God.

Do you want to be happy? Then follow God’s plan for your life. Read and study God’s plan in the Bible. Then love and obey Him with all your heart!
