Ode to the Word
From Psalm 19
Hope from Today’s Reading:
”The teachings of the Lord are perfect; they give new strength. The rules of the Lord can be trusted; they make plain people wise. The orders of the Lord are right; they make people happy. The commands of the Lord are pure; they light up the way. Respect for the Lord is good; it will last forever. The judgments of the Lord are true; they are completely right. They are worth more than gold, even the purest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even the finest honey.” (Psalm 19:7-10 NCV)
If these are just words on the screen to you, if you don't feel them, couldn't say them, don't believe them—not yet—pray for the Spirit to bring them to life in you. Pray to "taste and see" the Lord's goodness (Psalm 34:8), and the pure and holy richness of His Word.
Change begins when you open it.
