The Greatest Text Message | Psalm 19:8 | Devotional
The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
God’s Word is an amazing thing. Better put, it is “living and active.” It speaks directly to us, addresses our situation, and points us in the right direction. This verse notes two of the many things that God’s Word provides.
God’s Word gives joy to the heart. This occurs because the instruction from the Lord is true and accurate. When we follow His direction, we will experience pure happiness. The most discouraging times in life are times of disobedience. When we walk away from God, we find a land of emptiness and even despair. But real joy, an emotion that transcends life circumstance, is found when we follow His instruction.
God’s Word gives clear direction. The BIG QUESTIONS of life are: Where am I going? Why am I going there? What will I find when I arrive? God’s Word answers the questions. When a person reads Scripture, light replaces darkness; clarity replaces blurred vision; and confidence replaces confusion.
Joy and clear life direction. Tell me, is there anything else you really need in life?
