The verses that I like the best in psalms, chapter 119 are the verses 105 and 151. Verse 105 is the verse that says “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” This verse is my personal favorite because it tells me that the word of the Lord will be my light, and that as long as I hold fast to the truth, I will never loose my way. This is important to me because loosing my way in the midst of a world filled with so much temptation and distraction could be deadly to my spirit. The knowledge that I have a sure foundation beneath my feet, and a well lit path is a comfort when I feel close to succumbing to the cares of the world.
Verse 151, my other favorite, states, quite plainly, “Thou art near, O Lord; and all thy commandments are truth.” This is an important verse for me because I can think of it if I ever have doubts, and if I ever wonder, “Am I doing what I should be doing? Does God really love me?” If ever I hear those thoughts enter my mind, this verse comes along with it, especially the part about how the Lord is near us. It is a very comforting verse as well, if I ever feel alone amid a world of crumbling statutes, and fading morality. I can think of this verse whenever those times come about, and I can remember that the Lord is near me.
