LIVING BY THE SOLUTION
Read: Psalm 119:9-16
Psalms 119:9-16 – Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.
With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
MEMORISE: You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am the Lord (Leviticus 18:5)
No one is absolutely free from problems, here on earth. The problem of one is different from that of the other. Today, many people run helter-skelter, looking for solutions to their problems. Some people join cults in the name of getting security for their lives. There are people who are lured into evil associations unknowingly, in the process of looking for solution to their problems. Some meet their death suddenly in the process, while some sustain emotional and spiritual injuries that cannot be easily cured.
For all Christians, solution to our problems (better still, challenges) is found in the Bible – God’s Word. There is no problem anyone faces that is not addressed in the Bible. The challenges we face come in different forms. It can be marital, financial, physical, demonic, relational, and/or spiritual in nature. No matter the form yours is assuming, the good news is that, God has solution for every situation. The Bible is the book of solution. It warns the sinners. It encourages the hopeless and the discouraged. It strengthens the weak and empowers the powerless. It opens the eyes of the blind and strengthens the weak knees. In fact, the Bible is like a multi-functional capsule that can cure different illnesses (Psa. 107:20; 119:28).
Now, where the problem lies is that, many so-called Christians do not value the Bible. They don’t read, meditate and study their Bible (John 5:39; 2 Tim. 3:15). Some even read and try to be conversant with the Bible, yet they they do not understand it. In this internet era, it is dangerous for a person to fail or refuse to understand the Scriptures (Matt. 13:13-19; Rom. 1:28).
May God open our understanding to His Word (Psa. 119:33-40; Matt. 24:15).
1. Lord, give me the grace to move closer to You, through reading Your Word, in Jesus’ name.
2. God of heaven, give the grace to understand Your Word.
3. Lord, let there be revival of Your Word in all our local churches in Nigeria and beyond, in Jesus’ name.
