Family Devotional Guide - 6/9/24

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 119:41-42

  • Discussion: The psalmist begins this section by asking the Lord to “let your steadfast love come to me, O Lord.” What does the psalmist mean by making such a request? He then reminds the Lord of His promise. Why do different individuals in Scripture ask the Lord to uphold His promises? We do not get the impression that the psalmist doubted the Lord (especially given the declaration in the next verse: “I trust in your word”). Discuss why uttering the promises of Scripture in prayer is so important as an act of trust and faith in the Lord.

  • Song: “Your Love, O Lord” by Mac Powell, Brad Avery, David Carr, Mark D. Lee & Tai Anderson


Day 2

  • Scripture: Psalm 119:43-45

  • Discussion: What does the psalmist mean when he asks the Lord not to take “the word of truth utterly out of my mouth?” What does this tell us about the psalmist’s priorities? Where is the psalmist’s hope (v. 43)? What does the psalmist promise in verse 44? Discuss some ways we can prioritize the law of the Lord and learn how to obey the Lord more faithfully. What does it mean to “walk in a wide place” and how does that idea connect to seeking the precepts of the Lord?

  • Song: “And Can It Be” by Charles Wesley & Thomas Campbell

 

Day 3

  • Scripture: Psalm 119:46-48

  • Discussion: What is the psalmist’s confidence in verse 46? How might the Bible give us confidence to speak even in front of the world’s most powerful leaders? Why is it important to “delight in” and “love” the commandments of the Lord? Does that describe your view of God’s commands? Why do some find the Bible unnecessarily restrictive, and how would you respond to that argument? Finally, make a commitment to meditate on the Lord’s statutes this week.

  • Song: “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” by Martin Luther, Frederick H. Hedge, Jordan Critz & Matthew Boswell
