Day 135

“I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.”  Psalms 119:59

The Word causes us to see God for Who He really is.

The Word causes us to see our sin for what it really is.

Both these things will have an effect on our actions, there are no two ways about it.

When you and I dwell in God and His Word and allow it to penetrate our thoughts and attitudes, we can’t help but examine ourselves and ACT based on what we have learned!

One night while we were in Bible study with some brand new Christians, my husband was guiding us through the Scripture as we studied a New Life in Christ.  He came to this verse:

“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”  Hebrews 13:5

As he read it, one of the ladies brought her Bible to her chest and started crying and smiling.  She re-read the verse out loud and found wonder in what was said.

My heart smote me in that moment as I realized how much I had taken His promise for granted and here this woman was reading it for the first time and saw it in amazement!

I was moved to confession of my sin because of God’s Word.  I “thought on my ways and turned my feet” back to the Truth.

Where is it that you need a refreshing in the Word?  Will you let It move you closer to Him or will you reject It and rebel?

Let’s Dwell in His thoughts today and remember that His Testimonies are pure and can make wise the simple.

Where are our feet taking us?

Until Next Time, Lord willing,

    That’s a good verse for little ones when they do wrong. I think I will use it this Friday when I have a Tea Party for 4th and 5th grade. Good verse!
