Day Five: Which Way?

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Psalm 119:9-16 (NIV 2010)
9 How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, LORD;
teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I recount
all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.

Reflection:
Life is a journey. There are so many ways to go, so many options, so many traps. Which way should we go now that we are Christian? We need a map and good directions. Do we have these as a Christian?  Yes, we do. It is God’s Word and Spirit. Reading God’s Word regularly and meditating on it teaches us how to understand and follow the map well because His Spirit in us teaches and guides us. God has truly given us all that we need to live a God-pleasing life.

Responding to the Transmitted Message:
What place does God’s Word have in your life? How much do you value it? How often do you look at it? If we feel lost, perhaps what we need more of is God’s Word: reading it, meditating on it, studying it. God will surely speak to us as we seek His guidance with all our hearts. Let’s increase the time we spend reading, meditating on, and studying God’s Word in our day-to-day life. Let’s pray that God will open our spiritual eyes to see what’s happening on this journey and follow His way. Let’s pray that God will lead us on the path that leads to life.
