"Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors." Psalm 119:24
The word delight here means: delight, enjoyment, and it also refers to an object of delight. The Psalmist was saying here that he enjoyed God's testimonies- His precepts, His word, His commands. Does this describe you? Do you enjoy God's word? Do you enjoy reading it? Or is it something you have to force yourself to do? Is reading it something that you will get around to when you get around to it? Is it something you do when you can find the time, or do you make time for reading it?
Do you enjoy learning new things about the Lord from His word? Do you enjoy digging out its promises? Do you enjoy hearing God speak through His word? Or is it just black words on white paper to you? Is it something you do so that you can feel good because you have done your "religious" duty by reading it today?
Do you enjoy patterning your life by it as it counsels you through the situations of life? Do you delight in allowing it to transform your way of thinking, your outlook on life, your attitude, your emotions and the way you respond? Do you enjoy seeing what the Lord will show you on a personal level as you read it?
After asking so many questions this morning, I still want to ask one more that will sum them all up--- just how do you feel about God's word-- is it your delight and enjoyment? The one who delights in it will be victorious, will walk in wholeness, will enjoy peace and have a sound mind. The person who delights in it will always have clear direction as they navigate through life because they will always have His word to guide them. The person who enjoys God's word will remain close to God because they will enjoy Him-- He is the Word.
Have a great day. How do you feel about the Word of God?
