Revival The Psalm 119 Way Written by ChuckW on November 3, 2012 Read Psalm 119 with a different slant: as the story of a young shepherd who was backslidden, but saw, from experience, that the Word of God was the answer to getting his life in order. Check out the pronouns. Who and what is the author trying to say? Examine: What did the Word of God do for the author? What can the Word of God do for you in light of what it did for the author of Psalm 119? I believe that verses one and two were written last and leave us with a pathway that reflects what the author experienced in his pre-backslidden condition.
