AWAKEN | DAY 12
“The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.”PSALM 19:8
The Word of the Lord is insightful and clear. It leads us somewhere — to God, away from sin. It doesn’t leave us to surmise or wander aimlessly. And, His Word is right. We don’t have to defend, prove or argue it. Just follow and live it. Verse eleven in the same chapter says God’s commands lead us away from danger, to hidden treasure. Wow! Protection and reward at our fingertips!
This morning, I read about Moses and the commandments that God challenged he and the Israelites to keep, so that none of the diseases brought upon the Egyptians would afflict them (Exodus 15:26). God can do that — protect, set us apart and bless us when we follow His commands.
God’s Word is available, not to hogtie us and keep us from having fun, or rob us of happiness but to lead us into a life of love through Jesus. His commands lead us away from (spiritual) death into life everlasting! His Word lights our way to find purpose and treasure.
Father, I find the greatest treasure, Jesus, when I read your word. Your commands are right and are found in Him. I find the greatest joy when I obey your Word. Help me to be obedient like Jesus, and to love sacrificially like He does. Thank you for the joy and other riches I find in loving you and loving others.
