Podcast #190: “Word of Life” by Jeremy Camp

Observing, Reflecting, and Responding to God's Word in Psalm 119

God’s Word challenges and convicts, reveals and comforts. It is an amazing privilege to have access to the words God has preserved for us. Jeremy Camp’s song, “Word of Life,” sings of effects God’s Word can have on our lives. Our efforts this week can bring that impact to life.

Join me as we follow a repeatable pattern to interact with God’s Word.

  • The 8 basic words used in Psalm 119 to describe God’s Word
  • Observing Scripture by gathering information before jumping to application
  • Reflecting on our observations to determine the meaning of the text
  • Responding to what we’ve learned, either through action steps or prayer (or both)
  • Observing, reflecting, and responding to Psalm 119:49-56
  • How the negative things in life like suffering, mocking, wickedness, and my own indignation are met with God’s hope, comfort, preservation, and direction
  • A prayer response to what we learned
