Finding freedom

Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible. It focuses on God’s Word. In fact, it includes 10 different words for God’s Word, one of which is law. Many people today bristle at the term law and view God as the cosmic policeman in the sky ready to squash all fun and freedom. But that's not a true understanding of God.  Look at Psalm 119:30 and 32: “I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws...I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.”

God’s way is for us to choose truth and set our hearts on His Word. The result of this obedience is an exhilarating run and true freedom.
