Psalm 119:10 I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.
Psalm 119 is 176 verses in length. It is very focused on God’s word or commands or laws. The Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible states: “This celebrated Psalm has several peculiarities. It is divided into twenty-two parts or stanzas, denoted by the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Each stanza contains eight verses, and the first letter of each verse is that which gives name to the stanza. Its contents are mainly praises of God's Word, exhortations to its perusal, and reverence for it, prayers for its proper influence, and complaints of the wicked for despising it.”
John 1 shares: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” (Verses 1 – 5) This “Word” is Jesus Christ, our Savior. He was the word spoken over the earth, which was formless and empty with darkness over the surface of the deep.
This “word” in the original Greek is “logos”. A Greek philosopher named Heraclitus first used the term logos around 600 B.C. to designate the divine reason or plan which coordinates a changing universe. This word was well suited to John's purpose in John 1.
In the book of John, logos denotes the essential Word of God, Jesus Christ, the personal wisdom and power in union with God, his minister in creation and government of the universe, the cause of all the world's life both physical and ethical, which for the procurement of man's salvation put on human nature in the person of Jesus the Messiah, the second person in the Godhead, and shone forth conspicuously from His words and deeds.
Psalm 119 extols the virtues and values of our Lord Jesus. I have missed that correlation over the years of reading the psalm. Equally we can miss Him, the Logos, when He is right in our midst. Jesus addressed this phenomenon with the Pharisees in John 5 when they began to persecute him for healing a man on the Sabbath. In verses 39 and 40 He said: “You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.”
As you read and meditate upon Psalm 119 think about Jesus. For example verse 1 says: “Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD.” We know our ways are not blameless if we try to fulfill the law by ourselves. We can if we walk in relationship with Jesus, the word of God.
Prayer: “Father, open Psalm 119 to me. Let it testify to me of Jesus, the Logos and bless me in my knowledge of Him.”
