My heart stands in awe of Your words. I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great spoil. I hate and despise falsehood, but I love your law.(vv. 161-164)
Make sure that your heart gets involved in the word of God!
It can be very easy for our heart to be left out when it comes to God’s word. We get our minds involved—we try to understand the Bible. We get our will involved too—we try to obey the Scriptures; we try to build our lives around God’s way of life. But if we fail to involve the heart, we will also fail at the level of both our intellect and our will.
So, why should our hearts stand in awe of God’s word?
1. Because God’s word ushers us into the presence of God. Remember, this is God’s word; it is His revelation of Himself to us! Do you want to walk through life with a sense of God’s presence? Then spend time with Him in His word!
2. Because His word describes the acts of God on the behalf of men and women. From the Bible, you can learn how God relates to you.
3. Because God’s word is put together like a treasure map of great skill and intrigue. When we apply our minds and hearts to it, we find the most beautiful treasures. What treasure awaits you today?
