Psalm 119:105-108, 112 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth…you are the light of the world…don’t hide your light…let it shine brightly for others” (Matt. 5:13-16). When we are committed to living with the Word of God shining through our actions, we can truly represent the heart of God for his creation and experience the divine perspective. Our lives can take on the flavor of God’s righteous love, because Jesus makes righteousness available to us.
In our passage today, the psalmist reminds us to remain faithful to the Word—the Truth. If we are willing to embrace the Truth and allow the Spirit to bring the necessary adjustments to the way we live, we will grow in our faith and understanding of the ways of God. However, we must remain teachable or willing to receive ongoing instruction. Are you teachable? If so, the life of the Spirit will continuously manifest through you, because you have pleased the heart of God with your spiritual hunger and obedience.
Truth’s Shining Light
Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions;
the revelation of your word makes my pathway clear.
To live my life by your righteous rules
has been my holy and lifelong commitment.
I’m bruised and broken, overwhelmed by it all;
breathe life into me again by your living word.
Lord, receive my grateful thanks
and teach me more of how to please you.
I have determined in my heart to obey whatever you say,
fully and forever!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for inviting me to abide with your Spirit and enjoy the divine perspective as you release it. May my obedience bless and please you Father. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
