A WORD FROM YOUR PASTOR

Gimel

 

Psalm 119:17-24

 

17 Deal bountifully with your servant, that I may live and keep your word.  18 Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. 19 I am a sojourner on the earth; hide not your commandments from me!  20 My soul is consumed with longing for your rules at all times.
21 You rebuke the insolent, accursed ones, who wander from your commandments.  22 Take away from me scorn and contempt, for I have kept your testimonies. 23 Even though princes sit plotting against me, your servant will meditate on your statutes.  24 Your testimonies are my

delight; they are my counselors.”

 

Many times we as believers look at the Bible as merely a set of rules to follow, and don’t realize just how sweet the law of the Lord is.  It protects us and blesses us and teaches us, and gives all the instruction and wisdom that we need for this life.  But if we consider it as only a rule book, we can miss its joy and its application.  So let be like David who says in v18 “Open my eyes…”, so that we can learn what God intends for us to learn.

 

What a wonderful petition to pray whenever we sit down to study His

Word.  “Dear Lord, open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.”

 

Hebrews 12:18-29 this week, so study up!

 

Love you all, and I will see you Sunday!
