God's spiritual road map gives us stability

Psalm 119:19  

I am a stranger in the earth;                           
Do not hide Your commandments from me. 

As Believers we know we are in a foreign land!  We definitely need help living our lives rightly for the LORD.  His word is our spiritual road map and it gives us our stability in life for Him.

Ah, but what sinners we are!  We can get into a "spiritual malaise" not reading His word or even when reading His word we may be "getting nothing out of it" because our attention is distracted by our attitude, and lack of wonderment of Him.    

If we have wrong attitudes while going to His word, we are blind to His truths, and the LORD may hide His truths from us until we show some real effort and choose to divide His word rightly with reverence and awe.

God's word is precious, valuable!  We must choose to desire it and treat it as precious --more than any riches we can find here on this earth.


Luke 8:16-18 

“Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, 
or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lamp stand, 
so that those who come in may see the light. 

For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, 
nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light. 

So take care how you listen; 
for whoever has, to him more shall be given; 
and whoever does not have, 
even what he thinks he has shall be taken away from him.”


If you feel like a stranger, then let God teach you how He expects you to act.
