God's Awesome Instructions

Do you view God's word as being awesome?

Psalms 19:7-14 The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.

8 The commandments of the LORD are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are clear, giving insight for living.

9 Reverence for the LORD is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the LORD are true; each one is fair. 10 They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. 11 They are a warning to Your servant, a great reward for those who obey them.

12 How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults.

13 Keep Your servant from deliberate sins! Don't let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin.

14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to You, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

How awesome that God gave us an instruction manual for life, he didn’t leave us out in the cold to figure it out on our own. He could of left us alone wondering around miserably without any direction.

Do you view god's word as a precious treasure? God’s instructions to us are perfect, trustworthy, right, clear, true, fair, desirable, sweet, a warning, rewarding. God’s instructions revive the soul, make the simple man wise, bring joy to the heart, give insight for living, last forever,

Even with all this awesome instruction for life and with all its benefits we still have sins lurking in our hearts, hidden agendas and motives that we are not even aware of, Lord I pray that you will get rid of that stuff as well.

I pray that my love and passion for the things of God will continue to grow so that every other appetite will be smaller. I pray that every thought and meditation will be focused on you and living in accordance to your instructions so that I will be pleasing to you and useful for kingdom work.
