Since Jesus is the Word of God, all the Bible points to Him. Even the Old Testament may (and must) be viewed in the context of Christ: who He is and what He does for us as our High Priest in heaven’s sanctuary.

Awhile back I read Psalm 119 in the light of Jesus, viewing His name everywhere possible. What came of that was one of the most inspiring devotional experiences I’ve ever enjoyed. I’d like to share it with you in this fourth of a long-running series on that Psalm. This section has verses 88 to 104:

89 For ever, O Lord, Jesus is established in heaven.

90 Your faithfulness lasts for all generations; You have established the earth, and it abides.

91 They continue this day through Your sovereignty, for all are Your servants.

92 Unless Jesus had been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.

93 I will never forget Jesus, for with Him You have given me life.

94 I am Yours, save me; for I have sought Jesus.

95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me, but I will think about Jesus.

96 I have seen the end of all perfection, but Your mercy is exceedingly great.

97 O how I love Jesus!  He is my meditation all the day.

98 Through Jesus You have made me wiser than my enemies, for He is ever with me.

99 I have more understanding than all my teachers, for Jesus is my meditation.

100 I understand more than the ancients, because I trust in Jesus.

101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might have Jesus.

102 I have not departed from Jesus, for You have instructed me.

103 How sweet is Jesus to my taste!  Even sweeter than honey to my mouth!

104 Through Jesus I get understanding, therefore I hate every false way.
