The author of the contemporary-language Bible translation The Message, Eugene Peterson, passed away recently on 22 October 2018. Even though his translation of the Bible is controversial and not welcomed by everyone, I for one like to read the Word of God and compare from different translations, in order to widen my understanding and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to me the truth of that moment. When I read this translation of Psalm 119 I was in complete agreement with the words towards God, and the journey the writer is describing in this Psalm. May we follow the Map of Your Word everyday, Lord, and not miss the road signs so clearly posted.
Read this wonderful Psalm showing a walk with God and study of His Word, a desire to follow God’s commands and the wise counsel in His Word, in spite of persecution, difficulties and trials.
