January 29 Strength through the word

STRENGTH THROUGH THE WORD. This psalm, from the first verse and throughout, is all about how God gives us the strength to face anything. How do we get that strength? Here David says he can scale a wall, because God’s way is perfect and his Word is flawless. A perfect God could have nothing less than perfect communication with his people. It is we who read hastily, skip prayer, and fail to meditate on his Word, who find it confusing. The best gift in the world, next to the Word incarnate, Jesus himself, is God’s written Word, and it will ignite your heart if you give it a chance. Prayer: I thank you, Lord, for the Word of God, the Scripture, for its variety, wisdom, truth, wholesomeness, and power. Open my eyes so I can see more and more wondrous things in it and grow in strength to face anything that life can throw at me. Amen.
