The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever.The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb.
By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward. Psalm 19:9-11
Yesterday we discovered some of the rewards we reap as we follow God’s commands and precepts. Today we will uncover a few more.
Third, following God’s precepts brings us joy. Joy is the gladness we feel despite circumstances. When God is the priority in our lives, we experience greater joy. When our babies laugh we feel immense joy because their spirit knows joy, it touches our senses and brings us joy. God experiences joy as well. Think I am wrong? Read for yourself:
God rejoices when we follow Him!
Fourth, following God’s commands brings light to us. Have you ever seen someone whose eyes are just sparkly? When our spirit is filled with the light of the Lord, our eyes light up and His light in us shines through.
When we do the right thing in following what God wants for our lives, we can trust in Him. He is steadfast in his firm, unconditional love for us.
The transformation of our lives come with great rewards when we make a daily choice to follow him.For the Lord your God is living among you.He is a mighty savior.He will take delight in you with gladness.With his love, he will calm all your fears.3:17
What will you choose today?
Prayer; Father God we pray for you to guide us everyday to follow your commands and precepts. Help us choose your way instead of our own. Keep us on the path Lord. In Jesus name Amen
