Psalm 119:65 (NKJV)

Great peace have those who love Your law,
And nothing causes them to stumble.

Song Of The Day

Bible Commentary

Psalm 119:65 is a Bible verse from the Old Testament that speaks about the great rewards for those who love God’s law.

The peace of God is a treasure that surpasses the greatest wealth on earth. As Christians, most likely you have experienced it in some measure. We know it’s God when we can’t explain it.

Psalm 119:65

We are so accustomed to the constant strain and struggle of everyday life, we immediately recognize the peace of God when we feel a quiet relief in our minds and our emotions. It’s like stepping into a pool of cool, refreshing water on a very hot day.


Psalm 119:65 says, “Great peace have those who love Your law…” Not just peace, but great peace! The word “peace” in Hebrew means: safe, well, happy, health, prosperity, rest.

What a wonderful promise, but how do we come to love God’s law? The word “love” in Hebrew means: to have affection for, like, friend.

To state it simply, how did you get to know your best friend? What drew you to them? Most likely, you had something in common to talk about and it caused a conversation to develop and then the friendship grew as you spent time together.


It is no different with God’s law. He is the Word, as it says in John 1:1. So when we spend time in the Bible, we are spending time with God. They are His Words, and as we drink them they become part of us. He becomes part of us.

A casual acquaintance becomes a personal friendship as we diligently seek Him and His Word. Our hearts begin to have affection for His law, because it is where we find Him.  

Unlocking the Truth - Beauty for Ashes

The last part of Psalm 119:65 says, “…And nothing causes them to stumble.” That is quite a statement. It almost sounds too good to be true. But let’s remember the cross. Jesus Christ was the perfect sacrifice, fulfilling every law and command in the Bible that God required. When we accepted Him as our Savior, He came and set us apart for His use.

He sees us differently because the blood of Christ covers us. We might see all the flaws and blame ourselves for the mistakes we’ve made. But God doesn’t see them as mistakes. He uses those things for His kingdom, to teach us, instruct us, and guide us.


Our “screw-up’s” are His tools. Nothing is wasted in His Kingdom. He uses everything for our good and brings beauty from it.

Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

Remember the cross. The people who demanded Jesus be crucified and those who nailed Him to the cross made the worst mistake in history. They crucified God’s only Son!

But look at the beauty that came from their mistake.

He gives us beauty for ashes. (Isaiah 61:3)

As long as God is in control, nothing is out of control. He is the One Who reigns. Not us. Not others. Not nations. Not rulers. Not kings and not queens.

He alone is God. The Lord Almighty reigns! Blessed be His Name…forever and ever! Amen.

Study the Bible verse of Psalm 119:65 and know the great peace of the Lord’s sovereign reign in your life and over your life, now and forever.
