Family Devotional Guide - 6/2/24

Our current Family Devotional Guide series is an exploration of the 119th psalm.  This lengthy psalm is an acrostic psalm broken up into 22 stanzas, and we are covering one stanza each week. We pray this psalm, which focuses on the Word of God itself, will strengthen you in your walk with the Lord!


Day 1

  • Scripture: Psalm 119:33-35

  • Discussion: What does the psalmist promise in the second half of verse 33? What does this tell us about the psalmist’s commitment to God’s Word? In verse 34, the psalmist asks for God to give him understanding. Why is such a prayer important? Discuss how the Spirit aids in the understanding of Scripture (cf. 1 Cor. 2:14). Finally, why is it important to delight in the Word of God (v. 35), and how does that aid us in walking in the “path of your commandments” (v. 35).

  • Song: “Cornerstone” by Edward Mote, Eric Lijero, Jonas Myrin, Reuben Morgan & William B. Bradbury

Day 2

  • Scripture: Psalm 119:36-37

  • Discussion: John Piper has a helpful prayer method (the I.O.U.S.) to use before Bible reading each day, and the opening prayer is cited from verse 36 of this section. Consider stopping to pray this set of petitions and/or incorporating it into your daily devotional time with God. Spend some time discussing the importance of each of the following petitions: - Incline my heart to your testimonies (Ps. 119:36). - Open my eyes to see wonderful things (Ps. 119:18). Unite my heart to fear your name (Ps. 86:11). Satisfy me in the morning with your steadfast love (Ps. 90:14).

  • Song: “Step by Step” by David (Beaker) Strasser


Day 3

  • Scripture: Psalm 119:38-40

  • Discussion: The psalmist asks the Lord to “confirm to your servant your promise” with the result being, “that you may be feared.” How does God confirming His promises lead to fearing Him? How and why might the Lord “turn away the reproach” that the psalmist dreaded? Finally, the psalmist once again declares His love for the ways of the Lord. Pray that the Lord would help you to “long for [His] precepts.”

  • Song: “Worthy of Worship” by Mark Blankenship & Terry W. York
