lawperfectOnline Bible Study, Day 13 Scripture and Meditation by Betsi Moise

Thank you for taking the 20/20 challenge! Consider the PERFECTION of God’s Word
SWEETER THAN HONEY AND FINER THAN GOLD

Today is Saturday, and I hope and pray all of you will find some extra time to meditate on this beautiful Psalm of David. Read the verses, let the words gently whirl about you and breathe in the life giving wisdom. Reflect on what God is telling you personally through the pen of His servant, King David.

Psalm 119
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.

There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.

In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,

and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
The law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul;

the testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple;
the precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;

the commandment of the Lord is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the Lord is clean,
enduring forever;

the rules 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 drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
Who can discern his errors?

Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless,

and innocent of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

The Law of our Lord and Savior gives us strength. It gives us hope. When we are confused or uncertain, it gives us wisdom. It is our life!

Where do you go in times of distress or uncertainty?

Rely solely on the perfection of God’s Word and the challenges and distractions of our complicated and noisy world will not overwhelm us.
