Psalm 119:130 NASB
“The unfolding of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.”
As we prepare our hearts to worship on the next Lord’s Day (January 22, 2017) let us meditate on the Word of the Lord and let Holy Scripture shape, mold and guide us.
We will consider some scripture related to our verse for this week:
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.
Psalm 19:7 The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.
Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light;
Why do we delight in the words of the Lord? The words of the Lord bring us to knowledge of the person of Christ and they teach us how to have relationship with YHWH, which is what we were created for; to glorify the Lord and to enjoy a relationship with Him forever. Moreover the Bible teaches us all that is needed for life and godliness.
Let us pray:
Father, Your words are life and truth. Grant us the desire for more of Your word. Please teach us to desire more of your word and to meditate on it day and night. May we say with the Psalmist, “Oh how I love your Torah! It is my meditation all the day. We ask these things for the sake of Christ and His glory. Amen
