I Will Find God’s Will In His Word
In review of Psalm 19:11-12 it says, “God’s Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure. Otherwise how will we find our way? Or know when we play the fool?” (The Message).
Today’s passage is from Psalm 19:11-12. It reminds me that God's Word/Laws help warn me and keep me away from harm. I obtain success when I obey them. They help cleanse me from hidden faults.
God's Word revives me, makes me wise, brings joy to my heart, gives insight, warns me, and rewards me. God's laws are guidelines and lights for my path, rather than chains on my hands and feet. They point at danger and warn me, and then point toward success and guide me.
Most of God’s will is already revealed. The principles are there! When I open the Bible, God opens his mouth and starts talking. Am I waiting for God to write his will in the sky? Why would he need to do that when he’s already written it in a book? It’s important for me to keep in the routine of opening the Bible daily, to see what God wants to say to me.
“God’s Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure. Otherwise how will we find our way? Or know when we play the fool?” (Psalm 19:11-12 The Message).
God will teach me his principles. Then, when I’m looking for guidance, I can see if my circumstances or my emotions line up with God’s Word. The Bible will confirm God’s will.
And I need to keep this in mind: God expects me to obey what I already know before he shows me something new. So if God has already told me want he expects me to do and I haven’t done it yet, don’t expect him to show me the next step. He’s waiting for me to take the first step.
To meditate on God’s Word means to think deeply and focus on God’s Word for a period of time. First, read the passage slowly, perhaps out loud a few times, placing emphasis on different words or phrases. Second, reflect on the truth of the text. Third, respond to God in light of what I’ve just read, this may be quietly or out loud. Fourth, rest in the Word of God, listening for what God has to say through the Scripture.
I only have to open my Bible to know what God’s will for my life. Then, I have to spend time reading and studying it so it can transform my heart and mind.
God's Word / Laws warn and keep us from harm. They provide success if followed. They help point out deep sins and cleanse me from these faults.
What this means to me:
God's Word / Laws warn and keep me from harm. I'm successful when I obey them. His Word also helps point out what sins are lurking deep within them and cleanse me.
In summary, God's Word/Laws help warn me and keep me away from harm. Success comes from when I obey them. God's Word revives, makes me wise, brings joy, gives insight, warns me, and rewards me. His laws are guidelines and lights for my path, rather than chains on my hands/feet. Most of God's will is already revealed. When I get into his Word, he opens his mouth and starts talking. Also, God expects me to obey what I already know before he shows me something new.
I thank you Father for giving me your Word and Laws that reveal you will. Success will come as I obey. More importantly you expect me to obey what I already know before you will reveal something new. Today, I pray Father for your continued wisdom and guidance in my work, my leadership and my interactions with others. I ask this in your Son Jesus name, amen!
