Living the Word is a devotional commentary and a practical guide to finding happiness through obedience to God's Word regardless of life's circumstances. It walks with the psalmist verse by verse through each of the 22 stanzas of Psalm 119 as he struggles to live for God in a hostile world. It sits with him in the dust of despair, joins him in the school of affliction and sings with him as he celebrates the wonders of God's Word. The psalmist was persecuted and oppressed by wicked men. He was often discouraged and sometimes depressed, yet he always found joy and comfort in God's perfect and eternal Word. Living the Word captures the psalmist's love for God's Word and challenges the reader to make it his own. It journeys with him across the mountains and valleys of his earthly pilgrimage, and distills his wisdom into practical applications for daily living.
