Love God’s Word

20 May 2022
‘Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.’

The author of the Psalms highlights two important things that Bible reading does for us:

1) It shows us our spiritual condition. In Bible times, roads were unpaved and dusty, so when guests went into a house, they took time to wash the sand, dirt, and grime from their feet. That’s what Bible reading does. It gives us time to pause, reflect, and shed some of the messiness of everyday life. David said, ‘How can a young man [and an older one] cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word’ (v.9 NKJV). 

2) It shows us the direction we need to go. Your word is…a light to my path.’ When we’re facing an important decision and don’t know which way to go, God will guide us through His Word. David, who loved God’s Word and meditated on it constantly, prayed, ‘Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness’ (Psalm 143:10 NKJV). Many of the mistakes we make could be prevented if we stopped long enough to seek God’s guidance. He knows what lies ahead. We don’t. So ‘commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass’ (Psalm 37:5 NKJV).

We need to cultivate a taste for God’s Word. The psalmist said, ‘I will delight myself in Your commandments, which I love’ (Psalm 119:47 NKJV). ‘Your word is very pure; therefore Your servant loves it’ (v.140 NKJV). Today, let's ask God to give us a love for His Word.

 

What Now?

Do you need to refresh your love for reading the Bible? Try changing your routine a little – listen to an audio version instead of reading, try a different translation for a while, have your favourite snack close by, or anything that just makes that time a bit different.
