Today's reading: Psalm 19:1-14
If you've been part of P4 for very long, then you know I'm all about taking in and living out God's Word. That being the case, my attention was absolutely drawn to verses 7-11 where David describes God's Word along with its impact and benefits. I underlined them in my Bible and then wrote them down as a list so that I could ponder them further.
- Perfect--reviving the soul (vs.7)
- Sure--making wise the simple (vs.7)
- Right--rejoicing the heart (vs.8)
- Pure--enlightening the eyes (vs.8)
- True and righteous altogether (vs.9)
- More desired than fine gold (vs.10) Sweeter than honey (vs. 10)
- Warned--great reward in keeping God’s law
My favorite from this list is: Perfect--reviving the soul. Why? Because of the reminder that no matter my circumstance taking in God's Word will recharge, refresh and refuel me.
How do you view God's Word? Do you desire it "more than gold" and find it "sweeter than honey"? What role does God's Word play in your daily life? Tami
