Sweeter than honey

“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭19:7-11‬ ‭ESV‬‬ 

Our relationship with the Holy Spirit breathed Word of God for the follower of Christ is not a routine exchange of information but a supernatural ecstatic experience that touches our whole being.
  • It revives the soul
  • It enlightens the eyes
  • It emparts wisdom
  • It enlivens the heart
  • It captures our desires
  • It enriches our lives
John Piper sums it up like this:

“God is wiser than any wise writer. God is more caring than any counselor. God is more creative than any artist. It simply stands to reason that what God says will be more useful to us than what anyone else in the universe has to say. Not to sit at his feet and soak our minds with his wisdom is sheer craziness.”

Let’s stop being crazy and let God’s, perfect, sure, wise, right, pure, true, righteous, fine, sweet & rewarding Word do it’s supernatural work in our lives.
