Thursday, February 21, 2019 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments



Psalms 19:7, The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; 8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; 9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward.


WATCH THIS DEVOTIONAL


We are going to return to Psalms 19 to look at verses 7-11. God's Word is more than mere words. God's word is like the forces of nature or the laws of physics. It is a very real power that can do what God promised, especially on our behalf when we believe and act on His word.

Verses 7-9 explain real attributes and outcomes that we have experienced, or can experience. 

ATTRIBUTE  =  OUTCOME

Law of the LORD is perfect (whole complete)  --  Converts the soul: Brings Change

Testimony of the LORD is sure (not shaky like the world around us) -- Making wise the simple: Removes naivet√© 

Statutes of the LORD are right (Defines life and reality) -- Rejoicing the heart: Brings meaning and balance to life

Commandment of the LORD is pure (not mixed, sincere) -- Enlightening the eyes: Brings clarity and authenticity

Fear of the LORD is clean: (In a physical and moral sense. We do not want to displease God) -- Enduring forever: Not like things that break down when not clean

Judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. (God influenced decisions are best) Good and bad decisions drive our quality of life.

The high value that we place on God's word:
v. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold;  Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

The consequences of the value we place on God's word"
v. 11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward.
