The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. Psalm 19:7-11 (NIV)
Do you want my word to do its work in your life? What kind of work do you want to do in my life? How will you do your work in my life? Yes, of course, I want you to do your work in my life. I don’t want to hinder your work in my life in any way. Why have you asked me this question? You can help or hinder my work in your life. How could I hinder your work in my life? To answer this question, I will answer one of your other questions. Which one? You asked me, “How will I do my work in your life?” Yes, I did. I have many ways that I can choose to work in your life. But, I have a primary way that I want use to work in your life. How so? I want to use my word to work in your life. You have heard me refer to my word as, “the sword of the Holy Spirit”? Yes, I have heard you mention that many times to me. What is a sword used for? A sword is used for fighting. That’s right. My Holy Spirit will take my word and fight in you, with you and for you. How will you use your word like a sword to fight in me, with me and for me? Now, we are coming to the answer of how you will be to help or hinder my work in you. How will you place my word in the Holy Spirit’s hand to fight for you? I do that? Yes, you do. If I don’t ever meet with you in your word, your Holy Spirit will never be able to use your word to fight for me. That’s right. The more I meet with you in your word, the more the Holy Spirit will be able to use your word to fight in me, with me and for me. That’s true. Then, I will meet with you every day in your word. That will be very good.
Lord, I will meet with you every day in your word. I will allow you to use your word to do its work in and through my life. Make me wise with your word. Give light to my eyes, warn and guide my life with your word. Revive me and give me joy with your word. Amen
