Day Five - “Sweeter Than Honey”

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Psalm 19:7-14 (NIV)

7 The law of the Lord is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is pure,
enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
and all of them are righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can discern their own errors?
Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless,
innocent of great transgression.

14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Reflection:

Oh how the Psalmist relishes and delights in God’s Word! They are perfect, refreshing, trustworthy, right, radiant, pure, enduring forever, firm, righteous, more precious than gold, sweeter than honey — simply amazing! It is God’s Word that overflows out of the Psalmist’s mouth and from the meditation of his heart - this is what is pleasing in His sight.

Responding to the Transmission:

Like the Psalmist, may we also recognize how wonderful God’s Word is! Let’s pray that God would increase our appetites for more and more of His Word, and that we would with increasing humbleness take in His Word. Let’s also pray that we would experience the Word as the Psalmist did, and for it to continue to shape, warn, guide, and give joy to our lives as we live in humble obedience to His Word.
