I rejoice in your word like one who discovers a great treasure. Psalm 119:162
I’ve always loved to watch treasure hunter shows. Any kind. Those who search for lost treasure on ships buried deep in the oceans, or simple antique appraisers who give the value in the treasures brought to them. It’s amazing to me how something that looks so insignificant can be valued at such a large amount of money simply because of how rare it is and its condition.
Perhaps that’s why I love the Word of God so much. Each time I open the book, I find a plethora of rare jewels waiting for me to discover them. It brings to mind an old worship song, “Lord you are more precious than silver. Lord you are more costly than gold. Lord you are more beautiful then diamonds, and nothing I desire compares with you.”
What a precious gift we have in the living Word of God. Proverbs 3:8 says, it will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones. It’s our guidance system, and peace to our storm. It’s the rock on which we can stand to keep from being carried away by the rush of water that surrounds us. If we choose to live by it, we are promised a long and satisfying life. It’s our living bread and consistently brings provision for everything we will ever face, everything we will ever need.
I’m thankful for Your Word, Lord. May I never treat it as common or ordinary. May I honor your Word, obey your Word and be a doer of your Word. May Your Word hold first and last place in my life. May it change me, wash me clean and give me a fresh start. May my heart be filled to overflowing with Your great and precious promises. In Jesus’ name, Amen
Have a Word day,
