Psalm 19:7 The law A of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul;
The testimony B of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
The Word of the Lord is perfect and sure. It is complete without error. It is inspired by God and has everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him from His word. We are encouraged to study the word continually and meditate on it day and night. And only then will we succeed in all we do. C
Where do you go for renewal or restoring? V.7 says the soul is converted and then can be renewed daily by the Word. When your faith is weak go to the source of faith, the Word. The Word is a lamp to my feet for today and a light for my path for the future. D
Where do you go for wisdom? V.8 says the word makes even the simple wise. God gives wisdom to the one who pleases Him. If you lack wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Get wisdom, though it cost all you have. Wisdom from God’s Word is critical in a disciples life. E
