“The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.” Psalm 19:8b
Praise you, Lord, that my failures do not influence your attitude or love for me. You are the great and gracious One who does not change, who cannot change, who is steady, faithful and good. It is a great comfort to know, in the midst of my ups and downs, how consistently, wonderfully loving and reliable you are.
As it says in Psalm 19:7-11, “The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul.”
It is through your Word that you have brought life to my soul, giving transformation, strength, courage and joy.
“The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.”
When I have no idea what to do or say, your Word gives guidance. It is full of wisdom, overflowing with insight and packed with knowledge. By your Word and the work of the Spirit, we can, to a great degree, understand life, suffering, purpose, our end, and most importantly, you.
“The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart.”
In a world of great uncertainty, shifting values and confusing change, you guide us in knowing what is right, and that gives us joy. Life without boundaries makes us uncertain and sad. Life with the means to determine what is right and wrong gives us security, light and joy. You are the source of all that and this flows to us through your Word. We praise you for that!
