In today’s portion of Psalm 119, the psalmist recognizes that following God’s ways, as outlined in the Bible, brings good and will reveal wonders about God.
Psalm 119:17-18 Gimel.
Deal bountifully with Your servant,
That I may live and keep Your word [treasuring it and being guided by it day by day].
Open my eyes [to spiritual truth] so that I may behold
Wonderful things from Your law. (AMP)
Do you open God’s Word regularly seeking to know Him better and learn a better way of living? The Word of God is to be treasured as it guides and reveals God to us. I like the conclusion that the psalmist comes to in the last verse of this section, verse 24. “Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.” Knowing and using God’s Word brings delight, good counsel and hope to the one who seeks answers that are found within the pages of the Bible. Does that describe you? Are you a seeker of truth, guidance and wisdom that comes from God? Prayerfully consider how much time you are spending in God’s Word each week. Do you seek out groups where you can study His Word and learn? If you don’t know where to find such groups- here are a few suggestions. 1) ask your pastor what is available at your own church. If you don’t attend a church or your church does not have groups that match your schedule, here’s someplace else to look. 2) Bible Study Fellowship and Community Bible Study are organizations that present the Bible all over the world. Look them up on-line and see if there is a class you can join that is near where you live. The studies are complete, well laid out and based on the Biblical truths in God’s Word. Here are the links to their websites: https://www.bsfinternational.org and https://communitybiblestudy.org
The study of God’s Word will always result in delight and wonder as God reveals himself to you.
Being a student of the Bible brings great reward,
