Daily Reading – Psa. 119:89-176 / 1 Cor. 6
Psalm 119:105-106 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
Ask anyone who knows me, I’m not the sharpest pencil in the box when it comes to football. Not that there’s anything wrong with football. I do enjoy watching a little bit now and again. Still, I cant tell you the players stats. I don’t always know which team is from what city or which league they play on. I do know that over the years they have changed some of the rules of the game, and that every player who plays better know those rules. If they don’t, it can cost them, and their team the game. Sometimes it’s hard to see exactly what is happening and the referee on the field has to make a judgement call based on what he believes he has seen. Their judgment calls are not always right, but they are most often final.
When it comes to God’s judgements, two things are true. First, He is always right. That’s why the author of Psalm 119:105-106 said; “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.” He calls God’s judgements, “righteous judgments.” God is never wrong. His word is always true. It’s trustworthy to guide you through life’s twists and turns. The second thing we see when it comes to God’s righteous judgements is that they never change. If they changed, that would men He had been wrong and was correcting Himself. As we stated, He’s never wrong in His judgement calls.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
God has made decisions about life and how it should be lived. Those are his judgments. Since the game of life is a game He designed, the only way to play and win is by His rules. His judgement calls are always right, and at life’s end, very final.
