Webster: applying our lives to Scripture

Saturday, September 23, 2023
Blessed are they whose ways are blameless,
    who walk according to the law of the LORD.
Blessed are they who keep his statutes
    and seek him with all their heart.
    —Psalm 119:1-2
    It was and is no small thing to break from the surrounding unbiblical views of the world and adopt the ways and values taught in God’s Word. Here [in Psalm 119] the psalmist finds nothing more practical than thinking about God’s teachings and examining daily life and motives. Beyond finding applications in God’s word for our lives, the psalmist would have us apply our lives to God’s Word. Therein the psalmist develops purity and righteous character and experiences the benefits of following the Word of the Lord.

    See also Ps. 119:1-2; Matt. 5:8; Phil. 4:8; Col. 3:16; 1 Pet. 1:22; 1 John 3:2-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You reward those who seek to follow Your word.
