Another common Psalm, which has a couple verses put to music. Yet while reading a couple of different verses caught my attention.
Vs. 10 -- This is another verse that describes God's relationship with mankind. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth! And, oh, wouldn't we love to stop reading right there! So, often we read only those parts that we want to, or that make us feel good. Yet, if we would finish the verse a door of understanding would be opened to us.
"...unto those who keep his covenant and his testimonies!"
This is the part we don't want to read! We don't want to have to follow someone else's ideals or rules and commands, but if we truly love and follow Jesus Christ, and have His Spirit within us we will not begrudge this. We will want to follow and obey!
Vs. 14 -- "The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will show then his covenant." This verse explains vs 10 in part. If we want to know how to follow the covenant of Jesus then we need to love, obey, reverence, serve and follow Him. He is a loving and gracious God, and will lead and guide us into all truth!
May your day be blessed, and may you love and serve Jesus always!
