Your testimonies are also my delight, the men of my council. Psalm 119. 24
Meditation of Psalm 119 (5)
If the psalmist finds his delight in the Word of God, it is also because he finds there all the advice he needs. When we have to make a decision, when there are questions in our lives, problems for which we need guidance, where do we go? Do we go to Google, or do we turn to the scriptures, asking: Lord, what is the best thing for me to do? I need advice.
We can buy lots of “How to…” books that will explain all kinds of things to us, but let us turn instead to a better source of guidance: the Word of God; we will find better advisers there! Like the psalmist, we can say: it is there that “the men of my council” are found who give me complete satisfaction.
We might think that our modern problems are not answered in the Bible – are we really sure? We may not find the exact words there, but we will find the answer we seek to the problems of today, as well as when the Bible was written. This Word is indeed the word of the living God. He knew what problems were going to emerge, and he gives the answer in advance. The Bible is not a book where you look to paragraph 3.2.2. to find the answer to your question, but we find principles there that we can easily apply to our lives, regardless of the circumstances in which we we find. Why ? Because “the word of God is living and operative” (Hebrews 4. 12): it lays bare our true needs, and puts us in contact with the living God who wants and can respond to them (v. 13).
Here in this verse from Psalm 119 we have someone who sought guidance and turned to the Word of God for his delight. He says in a way: I know his wealth and his value; I will turn to it, because I am sure that I will find the answer I need there.
