Think On These Things Thursday

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Psalm 119:89-104
For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. 90Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. 91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants. 92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction. 93I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me. 94 I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts. 95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.97 O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.98 ¶ Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.101 ¶ I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.102 ¶ I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.103 ¶ How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

God's Word:
  • Is settled, perfect, needs no changes.
  • Reminds us of God's faithfulness to us.
  • Is pur guidebook.
  • Protects us from trouble if we follow it.
  • Is an encouragement.
  • Gives us wisdom.
  • Gives us understanding.
  • Gives us peace in the troubles of life.

I loved this passage and how it reminds us of how powerful and helpful God's Word is!
