SMT Verse 3, 2010

Seriously, how can we be on our 3rd verse of the year!!! It seems it was just Thanksgiving. And if the truth be told, I still don't really know my 2nd verse.

I chose Psalm 119:105 because it means so much to me and like everything else in the Bible - it is TRUE...Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

I plan on camping out in Psalm 119 the next few weeks using The Message, NIV and Amplified versions of the Bible. Psalm 119 refers to God's word quite a bit.

We must be careful not to analyze His word so much we fill our heads with it instead of our hearts. I want to truly live out His word, I want 2010 to be a year in which I continue to die to self and grow in Christ.

Feast on these words from Psalm 119:

33 Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees;
then I will keep them to the end.
34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law
and obey it with all my heart.
35 Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word. [b]

Your thoughts are right on this morning. Psalm 119 is full of the benefits of knowing His Word, but if it's just head knowledge, it isn't the powerful weapon (sword) it was designed to be. This is for me to apply, not just what I wished someone else knew so they'd treat me better. His Word is to decrease me that He may increase. I want to feast on His Words, delight in His Statutes, but too often I choose me. So I join your prayer words from Psalm 119 this morning: "Turn my head toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word." Thank you, Annette, for selecting this choice morsel from Scripture to recenter me. Love, Annette G.

I love how the Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. My current memory verse is Luke 1:46-47(NIV): "And Mary said: 'My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.'"
