MFM Daily Devotional 7 January 2024

TOPIC: The Excellency of God’s Word (II)

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 19:7-14 
The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

Romans 1:16

MFM Daily Devotional 7 January 2024 MESSAGE

Yesterday, we established the timeless truth that the word of God is eminently invaluable and practical (John 6:68). It is a light and a lamp (Psalm 119:105). It is a sword (Ephesians 6:17). It is bread to eat for our spiritual life (John 6:57-63). It is powerful to save (Romans 1:16; Hebrews 4:12). It is a tool in the hands of the righteous that blesses God and man. Its tremendous blessings are tied to its practical application for daily living. That is why the Psalmist said that in keeping God’s word there is great reward (Psalm 19:7-11).

Today, we will continue our discourse on this all-important topic by looking further into the excellence of God’s word:

8.  It grants hope in life’s pilgrimage 119:49, 1 Peter 2:11-12. 
9.  It brings God’s provision and care Psalm 119:57-64, John: 63.
10. It develops the believer’s character – Psalm 119:65-72, Philippians 1:9-10.
11. It teaches and helps us to be humble. It separates the reverent from the proud – Psalm 119:73-80, Matthew 5:13-16.
12. It enables us to demonstrate endurance when persecuted – Psalm 119: 81-88, Matthew 5:11-12.
13. It helps and encourages us to render service to God- Psalm 119:89-96, 1 Corinthians 7:23.
14. It gives us the wisdom to avoid sin – Psalm 119:97-104; Romans 7:7. 
15. It gives us light and illumination and also makes us luminous-Psalm 119:105-112; John 8:12.
