I spent some time the last few days in Psalm 19. The psalm speaks several adjectives in regards to God’s law. These are the adjectives: perfect, sure, right, pure, clean, true. Let those sink in…
Those are all beautiful adjectives because they reflect the character and heart of God expressed to us in His word. After each of these adjectives, the benefits of His law are shared. It : revives the soul, makes wise the simple (mind), rejoices the heart, and enlightens the eyes (sight). As I reflected, I was reminded of how Jesus reminded us that the greatest commandment is to ‘love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.’ The benefits of His word line up to point our heart, soul, mind, and eyes to look to Him–to be transformed by Him in those areas. Do I need any more reason to dive into His word daily? I love when He transforms my mind and affections as I obediently seek Him and meet Him in his perfect, sure, right, pure, clean and true word.
