The Wonderful Word

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;

Psalm 19:7-8

This is one of my favorite passages to read in the mornings.  I've read it so many times and it never gets old; it is so wonderful!  How amazing is God's Word!  It converts us from an old creation to a new creation.  It makes us dunderheads into geniuses (in the Lord's eyes at least; the world may still look down on us, but God's foolishness is wiser than man's wisdom!) Our heart rejoices when we see the goodness of what God has done for us through Christ on the cross!  And lastly, if we are struggling with sin, the Word purges our minds and hearts.  It is pure and the only way to clean the filth from our flesh is to be washed in the water of the Word.  

There is so much more to say as we meditate and think about God's Word, that is why it is so important to stay in it.  Let us learn more and more what the Lord has to say to us today through His Word! May you be blessed today!
