TOPIC FOR TODAY 26-10-21: God’s word: More than gold or silver 2
Fire Scripture: Psalm 19:7-11
The major reason for searching the Scriptures is that they testify of Christ (John 5:39). A sinner has but one want—a Saviour. A believer has but one desire—to know and win Christ (Phil. 3:8-10). With a “single eye,” therefore, intent upon one point, he studies this blessed book.
With unveiled face he beholds in this glass the glory of the Lord (2 Cor. 3:18). The truth is that no arithmetic can compute the price of that, which is now unspeakably better to him than the treasures of the earth.
If you have a choice between the word of God and gold, choose the word of God. If you have a choice between the word of God and MUCH gold, choose the Word of God. If you have choice between the word of God and much FINE gold, choose the word of God.
The point is plain. The beneﬁts of knowing and doing the word of God are greater than all that money can buy. The word of God is full of these precious pearls. The richest people are not those who have the best and the largest possession or earthly treasure but those who have the word dwelling richly in their hearts (Col. 3:16).
Those who are rich in this heavenly treasure are men and women of substance indeed. The word of God gives wisdom to those who read and obey it. Psalm 19:7b affirms that the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. And Psalm 19:8b says that the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. A wise person’s life conforms to the commandments of God.
The word of God is the best source of the deepest and lasting joy. It rejoices the heart and has an effect in our lives that compares to eating the most enjoyable thing David could think of—fresh honey straight from the comb.
In a nutshell, knowing God through Christ is priority number one in the life of the Christian. As you get to know God and store his word in your heart, the Word of God will become personally operative in your life.
Today as you delight in the word of the Lord and meditate therein day and night, wisdom and joy shall increase in your life daily.
Psalm 19:8 – The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
There is nothing more valuable than God’s word.
I decree that mammon shall not replace the word of God in your life, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Master, speak! Thy servant heareth
1. Master, speak! Thy servant heareth,
Waiting for Thy gracious word,
Longing for Thy voice that cheereth,
Master, let it now be heard.
I am list’ning, Lord, for Thee:
What hast Thou to say to me?
2. Speak to me by name, O Master,
Let me know it is to me;
Speak, that I may follow faster,
With a step more firm and free,
Where the Shepherd leads the flock
In the shadow of the Rock.
3. Master, speak! though least and lowest,
Let me not unheard depart;
Master, speak! for oh, Thou knowest
All the yearning of my heart,
Knowest all its truest need;
Speak! And make me blest indeed.
4. Master, speak! and make me ready,
When Thy voice is truly heard,
With obedience glad and steady,
Still to follow every word.
I am listening, Lord, for Thee:
Master, speak, oh, speak to me!
1. Lord, quicken me by Your word, in the name of Jesus.
2. Lord, help me to daily walk in Your law, in the name of Jesus.
3. Lord, give me wisdom and joy in Your word, in the name of Jesus.
4. Lord, let me observe to do Your word with my whole heart, in the name of Jesus.
5. Lord, teach me the way of Your statutes, in the name of Jesus.
6. Lord, establish Your word in my heart, in the name of Jesus.
7. Blood of Jesus, deliver me from famine of the word, in the name of Jesus.
