When everything in life goes wrong does it mean we have lost favour with God or that he has forsaken or forgotten us? The central truth of Psalm 42 & 43 (originally one song) gives a resounding NO & instead declares that even on the worst day of life God is still orchestrating his steadfast love for us! He is not only the LORD of our good days & good times but he is the God of our whole life! This is why his people can have chorus of living hope ringing in our hearts in the midst of all inward & outward trials of life.

This message looks at Psalm 119, a love poem about the word of God.It is the longest Psalm & longest chapter in the Bible found in the central pages of our Bible. It expresses in the most passionate & beautiful way how we should view & feel about all of God's written word. The Bible is not God but it is God's voice, God's view, God's opinion, God's standard on morality, justice, mercy & righteousness etc, God's story of creation & redemption. This is why is it wholly appropriate for the Psalmist & us to treasure & speak of the words of God with great affection & esteem. Love, trust & esteem for God & his words rise together. God is not who he is because of what the Bible is, the Bible is what it is because of who he is. It can be trusted as completely faithful & true because God himself is completely faithful & true. It is unchanging because he is unchanging. We esteem the Bible so highly & love it so much not because it is an end in itself but because it is the breathed out word of God.
