More Precious Than Gold

9 The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring for ever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous. 10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. 11 By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

I love the way the Psalms deal with the Word of God and describe it so holistically. God’s Word is described as follows: 1. Firm. God’s Word is strong. It gives us a solid foundation to build upon. 2. Righteous. His word is perfect and holy and has the power to change you and make you more than Jesus. 5. Precious. Instead of chasing money and this earth’s riches, we would do well to chase after the riches of God’s Word because they are eternal. 4. Sweeter than honey. God’s words should not be a drag to hear or to read. They are beautiful to the soul. When the Holy Spirit ignites God’s Word for us, we become hungry for it and will thoroughly enjoy consuming it. 5. Warning. We find rebuke, correction and direction as we seek God in his Word. Let it be your compass for life. 6. Reward. What you sow, you will reap. Give yourself to investing the Word of God into your life because from it, you will reap a godly and long-lasting return.

Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to bring God’s Word to life in your heart and then read this passage again and slowly and allow God to do so.
