The Law of the Lord is Trustworthy

Psalm 19:8-11   The law of the LORD is perfect, trustworthy, right, clear, pure, and true. When we embrace God’s laws, our soul is refreshed, we gain wisdom, our hearts rejoice. We know deep down that His laws are more desirable than gold, than a hoard of purest gold.

We often think that rules and regulations hem us in, that they can sometimes infringe upon our freedoms. Think about it, how do you feel when something you want to do seems to go against the rules? Do you become indignant when someone else issues an order, thinking to yourself, “No one can tell me what to do.” Do you cringe at having to obey? 

Yet, we know that laws allow us to live in relative safety. Just so, God’s laws lay a foundation for a safe and just world. Obedience to His word refreshes us and brings us joy – more so than having a hoard of assets. His laws are perfect, trustworthy, right, pure, and true. 

Trust that God knows you, loves you, and wants the best for you. Believe in faith that His commandments are for our good. As good stewards, we believe that being obedient to His word is how we find the true sense of peace, joy, and contentment that we seek.
