Daily Fountain 2017 - Benefits Of Living By God's Words

Sunday March 5

Bible Reading:     Psalms 119: 1 - 18

Topic:         Benefits of Living By God's Words

Psalm 119 is the longest Chapter in the Bible and begins with extolling the blessedness of the undefiled ones in the Way. The "undefiled one" is the person who sincerely believes the Word of God and whose life is regulated by the Scriptures.

Making the Word of God our standard of living is very important for us who are on the way to eternal life in Heaven.

Deut. 32: 47reveals it is not to be regarded as ineffective and insignificant because it is our life, and by this Word, we shall prolong our days in the land.

Notice that the Power of the Word is connected with the blessing of God in our lives.

The land was the inheritance of the Israelites from God and it is obeying His Words that would prolong their lives in it.

Today, our marriages, finances, family and all that give us joy are our inheritance from the Lord and we shall long enjoy them if we direct our life style to honour God's Word.

Father, I thank You because I am on the Way to eternal life. Cause me to love and obey Your Word in all that I do in this corrupt generation so as to possess all the blessings that come from doing so through Jesus Christ my Lord, Amen.

Memory verse:   Psalms 119: 8
"I will keep Thy Statutes, O forsake me not utterly"
