Deuteronomy 17:18-20 

18 “Also it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book, from the one before the priests, the Levites. 19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes,20 that his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, that he may not turn aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left, and that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children in the midst of Israel.

These were part of the final instructions and commands Moses was giving the Israelite’s before they crossed into the promise land. In this passage God spoke four principles that future kings were to abide by. So that they may govern and rule the people and the land with wisdom. Most importantly God’s hand would be over them.

This fourth principle was to rewrite the entire Bible at that time. The king was also supposed to make it part of his daily life. This was a book to read, write, memorize.

To learn to fear the Lord, and to be careful to observe God’s commands. That this book would keep the king from becoming prideful and oppressive. Among many other descriptions.

That is powerful stuff men. The living word of God was able to direct and guide wise kings that feared the Lord. So that all their decisions and actions were done under God’s grace and wisdom.

If the king of God’s people was required to do this, how much more do you and I need this?

Men, do we really fear the Lord? Do we want to have our light shine for Christ? Do was want our marriages to be rock solid, and reflection of the love of Jesus Christ? Do we want to raise children that stand up for truth and righteousness in this increasingly dark society?

Well if I can be honest, it wont happen by standing around. It wont happen with a half-butt effort. It takes work. It takes change. It takes a renewing of our mind.

It takes time in God’s Word to constantly keep changing our sinful nature.

Hunger and thirst for Him men, before it’s to late.
