GOD IS GOOD
I hope that you have great expectation for this year. We are standing in agreement that this is a year of God’s mercy. Psalms 119 certainly teaches us that we can trust in God because He is good. Verse 68 declares that the Lord is good and the psalmist continues by asking the Lord to teach him His statues. Of course statues
The word is called the Sword of the Spirit and we need to know how to handle the sword with skill.
means His promises, we need to understand how to understand and stand on the word of God. In verse 66, the psalmist asks the Lord to teach him good judgment and knowledge. The word teach manse to be taught, be trained, be an expert, skillful, and be pushed. Teach means more than information but also knowing how to make application. The word is called the Sword of the Spirit and we need to know how to handle the sword with skill. The reason we need to be an expert is because we have problems that only the word of God can handle. The psalmist makes an amazing declaration in Verse 71, when he says that it was good that he was afflicted because the affliction helped him learn the how to use the word of God. What you are going through right now that is difficult, is going to give you an opportunity to meditate, speak and act on the word of God. The word of God will bring you victory and then you will really know the power of the word. You will no only have information but also application which always brings transformation. The psalmist goes on to proclaim that the word of God is better than silver and gold. Silver and gold can only take care of a few things but the word of God can take care of everything. Determine in 2017 to run to the word and find a promise and believe on that promise and watch the manifestation take place.
Psa. 119:68 You are good and do good; teach me your statutes.
