Oh, how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies;
For they are ever with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers,
For Your testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the ancients,
Because I keep Your precepts.
I have restrained my feet from every evil way,
That I may keep Your word.
I have not departed from Your judgments,
For You Yourself have taught me.
How sweet are Your words to my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through Your precepts I get understanding;
Therefore I hate every false way.
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
Reading and mediating on the Word of God unravels the mysteries! Oh how wonderful to gain understanding from the Lord, "His Word". The journey awaits us everyday. Do we long for the time we spend in His Word? Do we enjoy His presence through the reading of His Word? If you want more of Jesus READ His Word, Meditate on it all day! Then YOU will gain understanding and treasure the time inn His presence. The Lord longs for you to come to Him. His Word lights the path and directs our feet. #UnravealingTheMysteries
The Lord Reveals His Omnipotence to Job
Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
“Who is this who darkens counsel
By words without knowledge?
Now prepare yourself like a man;
I will question you, and you shall answer Me.
“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements?
Surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
To what were its foundations fastened?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together,
And all the sons of God shouted for joy?
“Or who shut in the sea with doors,
When it burst forth and issued from the womb;
When I made the clouds its garment,
And thick darkness its swaddling band;
When I fixed My limit for it,
And set bars and doors;
When I said,
‘This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!’
Are we proud like Job when he asked God why? Or are we humbled when we realize God's omnipotence. All that the Lord did in creation and still does today we should be humble and in awe of an almighty God. Is there anything we can do without the Lord? No we are nothing without Him. But with Him we are able to withstand the enemy, hear from Him, and obey His commands. We must stop being proud and recognize the power of God. We must submit to His ways and follow His path of righteousness.
The mouth of the righteous is a well of life,
But violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
Hatred stirs up strife,
But love covers all sins.
Wisdom is found on the lips of him who has understanding,
But a rod is for the back of him who is devoid of understanding.
Wise people store up knowledge,
But the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
The rich man’s wealth is his strong city;
The destruction of the poor is their poverty.
How we use our mouth determines how the Lord rewards us. If we choose to be righteous, (In right standing with the Lord) our mouth is a well of "life". Love covers ALL sin wisdom is found on our lips. We become wise and store up knowledge. Choose this day how you will use your words, for life or death! For knowledge and wisdom! Or for destruction, poverty and death. #Wisdom #Knowledge #RighteousLife
