“O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.”
The more time we spend within that Large Place, the more our love for the Word of God will grow. Our love for the Scriptures will be evident in our daily lives.
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
If we do not make the Word of God a priority, our love for the Word will decrease. Our lack of love for the Scriptures will also show in our decisions and our standards.
“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”
A love for the Scriptures brings worship from our hearts.
“My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.”
A love for the Scriptures removes the vainness from our hearts.
“I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love. Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.”
A love for the Scriptures enables us to share the Word from our hearts.
“And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
God has given us the freewill to choose whether or not others can see a love for His Word in our lives. Each day we are either growing our love or allowing it to decrease.
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must have a love for the Scriptures.
