Literal Love

Psalm 119: 97 – 98

O how I love Thy law! It is my meditation all the day. Thy commandments make me wiser than my enemies for they are ever mine.

It is the Word of the Lord that instructs us, protects us and guides us. It is life to all who find it. It is refreshment to their bones. All who wish wisdom, peace and success can find those things in God’s word. When we put his word in us, we are literally putting life into our very being. We also find the wisdom we need for these trying times. God said that we are to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. He gave us his word so that through it we would rise to the top. He sowed success and peace and every good thing in the pages of his word. All we have to do is read his word and believe that which we read is truth. He does not wish us to be uninformed so he gave us the book. In it lies the wisdom of God and it is all ours for the taking.

If we ever understand the truth of this passage, if we can utter these same words with the same passion and conviction of the psalmist then I know that we will rise above our circumstances. We will finally live in and exhibit the glory and the power of our dear lord. Let these verses sink in a bit deeper today. Meditate on them until they become integrated with you. There is victory in Jesus and he is the word. Seek him.
