The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of pieces of gold and silver.
Laws, rules, guidelines—they all do the same thing. They give you freedom to move around within a prescribed set of boundaries. They take the guesswork out of knowing what you can and cannot do. Isn’t that a great feeling!
That’s the way it is with God. Within the pages of the Bible are God’s guidelines, desires, and expectations for being His children, for receiving His tender mercies and blessings that only He can give.
God’s expectations and desires for us are not too difficult and they never bring us harm. Instead, they bring joy, fulfillment, and success. Let God’s mercies rain down on you today and every day!
Pray: God, thank you for giving me Your law so I can be free to live joyfully in You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
