The longest chapter in the Bible is Psalm 119; hard to plow through in one sitting. But it is filled with 'good stuff':

Here are a couple of verses:

"I am completely discouraged--I lie in dust.

Revive me by your Word.

~ Psalm 119:25 LAB


Commentary: "How can God's Word revive us? Our world is full of evil; God's Word revives us with the promise of victory over evil. Our world says we are worthless without certain looks or possessions; God's Word gives us value by telling us that God created us and loves us. Our world is full of discouragement; God's Word encourages us. Our world has no real lasting answers; God's Word gives satisfying answers. Read it and be revived.


"If you will only help me to want Your will,

then I will follow your laws even more closely."

~ Psalm 119:32 LAB


Commentary:  "Our lives are cluttered with rule books, but the authors never come with us to help us follow the rules. But God does. That is the uniqueness of our Bible. God not only provides the rules and guidelines, but comes with us personally each day to help us live according to those rules. Of course, we must invite him to do this. Do we?
