Your decrees are wonderful; therefore I obey them. The revelation of Your words brings light and gives understanding to the inexperienced. I open my mouth and pant because I long for Your commands.
Make my steps steady through Your promise; don’t let any sin dominate me. (Psalms 119:129-131, 133 HCSB)
Do we agree with the psalmist? Do we know how truly wonderful the word of God is? Do we grasp that whatever confusion or darkness we may find ourselves stumbling in, God’s Word sheds light and gives understanding? And are we as desperate for His Word? Do we long for God’s instruction, digging into it daily?
God’s Word doesn’t just give us understanding, it makes our steps steady. It helps keep us from sinning. Some of us are sinning without really realizing we are because we haven’t yet seen that God’s Word condemns it. We must understand as the Apostle James did, that the bible is a mirror. If we are sincere about following Christ, we will look into that mirror every day to make sure we are walking worthily of our Savior and King.
So I encourage you sisters, get into God’s Word. Let it renew your mind that you may be transformed into the princess of Christ He designed you to be. Godliness equals power. The holier you are, the more powerful your witness is to the lost. Read your bibles, pray about and obey what it says, repent if you need to, and let those lights shine today!
