Our scripture this morning is Psalm 119:89‭-‬96. 

Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. By your appointment they stand this day, for all things are your servants. If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have given me life. I am yours; save me, for I have sought your precepts. The wicked lie in wait to destroy me, but I consider your testimonies. I have seen a limit to all perfection, but your commandment is exceedingly broad.

This passage reminds us that God’s law is eternal and extends to all things. He is the Creator of everything that exists and His commandments apply to all creatures, objects and situations. There is nothing not covered by His word.

The psalmist speaks of delight in God’s law, that we may find joy in obedience and comfort in the wisdom we are given. God wants us to know and live by His commandments. He tells us “You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul” (Deuteronomy 11:18), that they are to become part of us.

In order to live God’s law, we must first know God’s law. We hear His words given in scripture, we see the example Jesus showed us and we are called to be in communication with Him through prayer. Then we may understand the call He places on us, to share His love with everyone. 

Loving Lord, we are humbled that You call us to be part of Your kingdom work. Bless us to be faithful servants, sharing the Gospel message and making disciples of all the world. Amen.
