Psalm 119:17~24: The Word for Today

17 Do good to Your servant, and I will live; I will obey Your Word.

18 Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your Law.

19 I am a stranger on earth; do not hide Your commands from me.

20 My soul is consumed with longing for Your Laws at all times.

21 You rebuke the arrogant, who are cursed and who stray from Your commands.

22 Remove from me scorn and contempt, for I keep Your Statutes.

23 Though rulers sit together and slander me, Your servant will meditate on Your decrees.

24 Your Statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.

(NIV)
The question I have for you today is: How do you live such a life as this? A life that has His Word ALIVE in you 24/7?

You need to know His Word.
You need to be reading His Word.
You need to believe His Word.
You need to follow His Word.
You need His Word.

That would be a good start. How can you show others of the new transformed life in you when you let His Word slip from your heart? Stop right now what you are doing and enter His Word with an open heart. Read His Word as if your very life depends on it.

It does, you know...

Until next time,
Under His Grace.
