“Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” (Psalm 119:165 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible)
Have you ever seen someone who is irritated and offended easily? I have. If I’m not careful, that person can be me. If you find yourself in this boat, check the level of love you have for God’s Word. There is a definite connection.
It is the love of law, and the belief that the law of God is in accordance with justice, that gives peace to minds. God’s government is a government of law and therefore it is loved. (Barnes Notes)
The waves of trouble beat on all of us. We must be like the sea-washed lighthouse that stands firm and resolute in His Word. There is a calmness that comes from knowing that He is in charge and knows exactly where we are and what is happening.
Consume your mind on The Word of God rather than the words of man!
Prayer: Jesus, would You saturate my mind with Your Word and give me a greater love for Your law.
