Daily Psalm 119   NLT
verses 97 - 104

Sweet rewards!
In Psalm 34:8 we read "Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him." The psalmist in verse 103 says he has tasted the Lord's Words and that they are "sweeter than honey." Oh, the sweet rewards of a life lived loving His instructions.

A few of the rewards mentioned in these verses of Psalm 119: exceptional wisdom, guidance, insight and understanding. 

Draw near to God, pursue the knowledge of His Word and enjoy the sweet benefits!
God, I want to hunger for Your truth the way the psalmist does. Teach me Your ways!
 97 Oh, how I love Your instructions! I think about them all day long. 

98  Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are my constant guide. 

99  Yes, I have more insight than my teachers, for I am always thinking of Your laws. 

100  I am even wiser than my elders, for I have kept Your commandments. 

101  I have refused to walk on any evil path, so that I may remain obedient to Your word. 

102  I haven't turned away from Your regulations, for You have taught me well. 

103  How sweet Your words taste to me; they are sweeter than honey. 

104  Your commandments give me understanding; no wonder I hate every false way of life.
