From childhood, parents begin reading to us or tell us stories that are written in books. My brother, my sister, our lives are indeed cluttered with books that have rules, but the authors never come with us to help us to follow those rules. Many people have read many books and they can even recite them very well. But how many really know how to recite and follow the rules written in the Book of the Lord? All drivers must read books with codes to learn to drive and they must accept those rules without questioning them. But when it comes to the Bible, the same people could be the first to question each verse.
In fact, we, believers need to understand that the Word of God is a book that presents the rules of God and God is in His Word. This is the uniqueness of the Bible. As God does not only provide the rules and guidelines, but He comes with us personally each day to strengthen us so that we can live by these rules. Today’s passage says: “Cause me to understand the way of your precepts, that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds. My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word”. My friend, the amazing privilege we have received through the sacrifice of Jesus is that all we must do is invite Him and respond to His direction for peaceful lives, deliverances, restorations and well-being on earth. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
