The Word of God is the master key

"how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me” (Psalm 119:97,98).

There is something that has potent power, is unchanged, constant, indisputable and flawless. It is the word of God. Several people have tried to subvert the word of God but have failed. Such persons have either ended disastrously or surrendered to the power of the word.

No wonder, the Psalmist in our text today speaks of the numerous possibilities of the word of God in his life. The attitude of the Psalmist to the word of God culminated in great benefits for him. He had strong love for the word of God; the word was always with him; and the word was his meditation at all times. He was obedient to the word of God; refrained his feet from every evil; and the word of God was as sweet as honey in his mouth.

The Psalmist’s right attitude towards the word of God made him wiser than all his enemies; he had understanding than all his teachers; he understood deep things of the Spirit; and had the grace to hate every false way.

There is the need to realise that the secret of wisdom, knowledge and understanding is the word of God. It is the source of power to the powerless. The student who loves the word of God will not lag behind in his studies. When the sorrowful resorts to the word of God, he gets consolation. When the sinner or backslider gives himself to the word of God he gets the conviction that leads to repentance. All the promises in the word of God are true in Christ and are capable of effecting wonders in our lives if we hold on to them.

All it takes to have all-round victory is to develop the right attitude to the word of God as the Psalmist did: Love it, believe it, obey it, trust in it and put it into practice. Read the word of God every day, because there is awesome power in it. In fact, it is the tonic for our faith.

Thought for today: The world of the Word has life-giving power.
