ם Mem

97 Oh, how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
98 You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies;
For they are ever with me.
99 I have more understanding than all my teachers,
For Your testimonies are my meditation.
100 I understand more than the ancients,
Because I keep Your precepts.
101 I have restrained my feet from every evil way,
That I may keep Your word.
102 I have not departed from Your judgments,
For You Yourself have taught me.
103 How sweet are Your words to my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 Through Your precepts I get understanding;
Therefore I hate every false way.

105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.

This passage of scripture has been on my heart and mind for a couple of days now, and I really wanted to share it with you all. One of the spiritual disciplines we have been looking at recently is the Study of God’s Word. This passage shows not only a deep love for God’s Holy and Precious Words, but also the fruit of living according to it. Not out of law, or because he has to; but rather because the author delights in it.

I would just like to encourage all of you to read through this passage a few times. Read through it slowly. Hang on every word, and every line. I would also encourage you to pray each verse into your heart. Speak to God and ask Him to bring these verses to life for you, and to fruition in your everyday life.

As we store up scripture in our heart, as we inscribe these precious words of God on the tablet of our heart, we now allow the Holy Spirit to bring them into remembrance when we need them for strength, comfort, edification, teaching, living and so much more. Without these scriptures on our heart, the Holy Spirit has nothing to draw from.

So let’s keep making deposits. Build up your accounts, so when you need to make withdrawals for yourself or others, there will be an abundance.

May the Joy and Peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be in you.
