TEXT: PSALM 19:7-11
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
Key verse: Jeremiah 6:16 Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
God's word is complete and wholesome; it must not be added to or subtracted from. Our obedience to it must be similarly complete and wholesome. We must not half our obedience, nor be overzealous and begin to play some other things and say, “Oh we are over-righteous.” No! Keep to it exactly. That is the word of God. To awaken us to a total obedience and wholesome loyalty to God's word in our daily lives and Christian service is the purpose of the message of this book, because there are many that have left the true vision, the old way. The old way! Seek the old ways, the old paths and walk in it and you will find rest to your souls. When the people in the old time failed, they were doomed; they were destroyed by the flood and were wiped out except for eight people. God does not change as expressed in the scripture below.
Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore, ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Deuteronomy 28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth.
If people change the vision of the Christian life and are following another thing and are halving it and are managing themselves, they will never make it because God does not change. It is you that changes because times and events are changing, heaven does not change, the God of heaven does not change, the word of God does not change. If we will serve God, let us serve Him. If you want to serve the Lord, serve Him. If you are not ready, know that you are not ready and that you have neither lot nor part with God. Therefore, gird up your loins, strengthen yourself and let us serve this God. Let us really serve this God to make sure we aim at the wholeness, the completeness that God has given unto us.
Thought for the day: The revealed word of God is given to us to obey.
Song for the day: I am ready to obey Thy word.
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 75-77; Romans 6
