The beautiful word of God, part 2
pastor corner

Man is to have the proper reverence for God. God is not a man, He is Deity. God’s word explains to man that God is to be held in awe and worshipped by man as God commands. If man has the proper respect for God and His word he will be found “clean” for he will be obedient to God, and what God’s law is teaching now will not change. Today some try and bring God down to man’s level, but it must always be remembered God is in charge.

Jehovah created the universe in all it’s splendor and glory.

He provided a place for man to exist, and when man sinned, He provided the only sacrifice where by man could be justified once again. Man must reverence God and His word.

All of the God’s word is true and can be followed in complete confidence. Man does not have to worry about additions or subtractions coming from God. Man on the other hand has tried to change God’s word to fit man’s desires. Man started changing God’s word from the beginning. Kings tried to change the commands of God when it came to worship, false prophets told the people what they wanted to hear. God has given to man what man needs to know; it is up to man to follow them. God’s word is more precious than the most precious gold and should be desired more than anything else.

The sweetness of God’s word is to be desired more than all else for it alone when obeyed can save man. After telling about the wonder of God’s law, the psalmist spoke of how man can walk with God. The word will direct man when man cannot find his own way. It is by the word of God man is warned about sin and its consequences (James 1:14, 15). It is in God’s word that one reads of the great reward awaiting those who “walk with God” (2 Tim. 4:8, Rev.

22:14). It is in God all must place their trust. Praying for His help in overcoming temptations (1 Cor. 10:13), and for His forgiveness when overcome (1 John 1:7 – 10).

The Psalmist finished this grand work by exclaiming, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer” (Psalm 19:14). Our words and the thoughts of our heart must be acceptable in God’s sight.

We must trust in Him and His word, being obedient to its teaching, and we must see the Lord as our strength and redeemer. God’s word is one of the great blessing given to mankind.
