So often I have returned to Psalm 19 to remind myself of how amazing the Bible is. David knew this perhaps more than any Old Testament saint. With the isolation of being a shepherd, being chased every day by his boss, and realizing failure in his own life, there was nowhere to look for consolation and help than God’s Word. Read David’s words below and let them speak to you.
“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes” (Psalm 19:7–8).
Like David, I have experienced times when my soul was dry, my heart for the Lord had lost it drive, and difficulties sucked life out of everything. It is the Word of God that revives my heart and soul. Often, I face very difficult circumstance when trying to help others and I need wisdom from the Lord. His Word provides wisdom this world can never give me.
The sorrows and pain I see in the lives of others at times steels my joy. I must quickly return to the promises and purposes of God to restore His joy in my heart. There is never a day I face that I don’t feel the need of instruction from Scripture. That is where I go to find wisdom and enlightening that is reliable and true.
Where do you go when these needs affect your life?
