(Psalm 19vs10 MSG) "God’s Word is better than a diamond, better than a diamond set between emeralds. You’ll like it better than strawberries in spring, better than red, ripe strawberries."
Don't you love this verse! It paints the beautiful and deeply impacting truth of the wonder of God's Word!
Whether in good seasons or in bad, God's Word is completely applicable. It's not just a nice message or a 'think positive' message. God's Word is the living and active voice of the creator of the Heavens and the Earth.
I love what Benjamin Hastings says in his song "Anyway"
"You've been God for awhile
So the wisdom of time says You always know best
So whatever befalls, whatever You want
Your will is worth the test"
It's doesn't take a brain surgeon to see the hurting in this world, and it also doesn't take one to establish that if we're going to live above the world, we've got to be different.
Your language MATTERS
Your posture MATTERS
Your intentions MATTER
Your relationships MATTER
What you watch MATTERS
What you say MATTERS
What you listen to MATTERS
Do you get what I'm saying.?
This life is a gift far too precious to live unguarded. Give God your heart, your soul and your mind... even in their brokenness and He will guide you to the path of His voice.
This path might not visibly differ to the one you're on... but it's actually like chalk and cheese to the ways of the World.
Because when you are set on following God's Word, you see the beauty and freshness of the age-old Scriptures! They begin to establish hope in you heart, the plant Joy, they cultivate peace.
All because His Word is truly better than diamond. Juicier than Strawberries.
His Word is your life
