COMMITMENT TO GOD’S WORD
Saturday, December 26
"7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
12 Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes."
Psalm 119: 10
"With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments."
The Bible tells us the characteristics of the word of God. It produces the righteousness of God in the believer. It makes the servant of God wise. As you get consecrated to reading and obeying the word of God, it will purge and cleanse you and make you a victorious Christian in your life and ministry. The scriptures point us to Jesus Christ, and it is very useful in all areas of life, family, church, community, government and organization. It is profitable for doctrine, for instructions in righteousness, corrections in life, thought, actions and imaginations.
Your mind is renewed by the word of God. The word of God changes your life and helps you relate with human beings in a proper way. Do not go contrary to the word of God. Paul rebuked Peter when he walked contrary to the gospel. Some part of the word may seem hard to understand but it is given for our eternal good and to make the child of God thoroughly furnished unto all good works. The word of God is pure and perfect. There is no lie in it. Verify every promise, it shall not fail.
The word is clean and it also cleanses. There is no uncleanness in it. Forever O LORD, Thy word is settled in heaven. There is no lie nor hypocrisy in the word of God. It breaks the heart into pieces. It is like fire that burns and purifies. It is full of power and Holy Ghost anointing. Jeremiah said that the word was burning in him as fire, until he spoke or preached it. It makes you born again and sanctifies your heart. It is the word of life; the word of faith; the word of truth; and the word of power. It makes you strong in the faith. It increases your faith and righteousness. It is the word of hope.
There is hope of rewards in heaven. Mansions and crowns are waiting for us. It is the word of wisdom and it makes us wise; wiser than our adversaries and enemies. It is the word of judgment, by it judgment is pronounced. When Nebuchadnezzar refused to humble himself before God, judgment was pronounced upon him. These are some of the characteristics of the word of God.
Thought for the day:
Every word of God is essential for your life.
Song for the day:
Something more than gold … the word of God in the life of man
Bible reading for the day:
Zechariah 1-3; Revelation 17
