A word of command

Psalm 119.98

A word of command

"Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever mine" [Psalm 119.98 NASB]

In this verse we are made aware of some of the benefits of reading the word, loving it and studying it. When we decide to put God and His word first then we are always sure of His presence in whatever we put our hand to.

Most of us may have seen, at one time or another and maybe even bought a promise box. David did not have this item on his person but what he always carried with him was the commandments of God in his heart. Now this is interesting and worthy of note.

We all love to hear a word from the Lord but it is interesting to observe that the majority of the churches in the Revelation received both a rebuke and a word of instruction from the Lord.

David knew, as we can all honestly confess, that sometimes we get taken in, stumble and fall by the enticements and entanglements of the enemy.

How did David get the victory in his life? How did Jesus overcome His temptations in the wilderness, defeat and confuse His enemies at every opportunity? How can we also constantly triumph over our numerous and persistent enemies?

Our victories are accomplished when we fully trust in the Lord and ask Him to give us a word in season.

In Jesus' life it was a word of wisdom. In David's case it was a word of command. Can it be possible that the cause of some of our most costly defeats is due to disobedience?

Is this why David prayed, "Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way." [Psalm 139.23-24 NASB].

The clue to the meaning of our study text is not its well-known beginning but its conclusion. David knew that what he needed had already been given. What could it have been? ... to constantly abide in the word. [David McArdle]




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
