“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105
Discovering the promises of God is one of the most exciting things you can do as a Christian. The better you know the Scriptures, the easier it is to receive God’s guidance. Psalm 119 is a treasure that teaches us the value of God’s word. Study it and meditate on the truths it reveals. Here are just a few verses from the longest chapter in the Bible.
“Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord… I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. I will not neglect your word… Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law… Your statutes are my delight. They are my counselors… Let me understand the teaching of your precepts; then I will mediate on your wonders…
My soul is weary with sorrow, strengthen me according to your word… Teach me knowledge and good judgement, for I believe in your commands… If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.”
Verses 99 through 102 are thrilling. Meditate on these verses. The author says, “I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes. I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts… I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me.” That is the desire of our hearts, to be taught by the Lord, through the Holy Scriptures, by the very Spirit of God, that we might walk with Jesus everyday and know His will.
“You are my refuge and my shield. I have put my hope in your word… I am your servant. Give me discernment that I may understand your statutes… The unfolding of your words gives light. It gives understanding to the simple… Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.”
Psalm 125:4-5 “Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.”
Psalm 125:9 “He guides the humble in what is right and he teaches them his way.”
Father, Thank you for Jesus. Thank you for the precious Word of God that guides us. Help us to walk in love that we might bring glory to the name of Jesus.
With Love, Cindy

Do you know Jesus?
If you have never asked Jesus to be your Savior, you can do it now. He loves you more than you can comprehend, and it will change your life forever.
“IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH, ‘JESUS IS LORD,’ AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED. FOR IT IS WITH YOUR HEART THAT YOU BELIEVE AND ARE JUSTIFIED, AND IT IS WITH YOUR MOUTH THAT YOU CONFESS AND ARE SAVED. AS THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, ANYONE WHO TRUSTS IN HIM WILL NEVER BE PUT TO SHAME.” ROMANS 10:9-11
