Topic: God’s Word – More Than Gold Or Silver (1)
Psalm 19:9 – 10 – The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Psalm 19:7 – 11
MFM Daily Devotional 25th October 2021 Outline
From time immemorial, believers have sought answers to some important questions: How do you stay alive and not dead? How do you stay wise and not foolish? And how do you stay happy in God and not miserable? The answer is this: meditate on the law of the Lord day and night (Psalm 1:1-3).
So, for the sake of your life, wisdom, joy and prevailing prayers, I want you to give yourself this year with unshakable commitment to being in the word of God every day. The beneﬁts of the word of God are unquantiﬁable. So, what are some of these beneﬁts? What is this “great reward” that Psalm 19:11 talked about that makes meditating on the Bible so much better than much ﬁne gold?
The life-giving and life-nourishing beneﬁt is the ﬁrst thing David mentioned because it is the basis of everything else. Psalm 19:7 afﬁrms that the law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul or restoring life. When life is non-existent or it is in jeopardy, the law of the Lord brings it back. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).
Jesus fasted for 40 days and quoted the word to defeat the devil in his hour of temptation. Physical food can only give physical life, but the word of God gives spiritual life, life that never ends. You cannot maintain dynamic, powerful, vibrant life in God if you neglect His word. That is because the law of the Lord is perfect and it revives the soul.
Our life begins with the word and we stay alive by the word. If we abandon the word of God, we will die spiritually. Only the word of God gives the life which matters in the end. Also, the law of the Lord revives the soul because God has made it the means of life. Without it we perish. There is nothing more valuable than knowing and keeping God’s word.
You cannot put a price tag on Scripture. There is nothing more valuable than knowing and keeping God’s word but the greatest value comes in not only knowing but keeping God’s word. My prayer for you today is that you will understand the supreme value of knowing and keeping God’s word and commit yourself to reading and following it yourself.
God’s word works for those who work it daily.
The word of God shall not turn to a famine in your life, in Jesus name.
HYMN: Lord, Make Your Word My Rule
1. Lord, make your word my rule,
in it may I rejoice;
your glory be my aim,
your holy will, my choice:
2. Your promises my hope,
your providence my guard;
your arm my strong support,
yourself my great reward.
1. Lord, let not Your word depart from my mouth, in the name of Jesus.
2. Lord, help me that I might meditate on Your word day and night, in the name of Jesus.
3. Lord, let me observe to do according to all that is written in Your word, in the name of Jesus.
4. Lord, let Your word grow and prevail in my life, in the name of Jesus.
5. Lord, I declare my delight in Your word, day and night, in the name of Jesus
6. I shall be a hearer and a doer of Your word, in the name of Jesus
7. I shall not walk in the way of the ungodly, in the name of Jesus.
