“At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.”
When the storms of life rage around us, His Word can bring us comfort and peace. Knowing His Word in the midst of our storm allows us to give thanks to Him even in our darkest hour.
Unless we know His Word, we cannot give Him thanks for what He has done.
“I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.”
In the midst of our affliction, we have to decide whether to allow the circumstances to distract us or remind us of what God’s Word says.
He brings situations to pass so that we can learn Who He is in the middle of our suffering.
Unless we know His Word, we cannot give Him the praise He deserves.
“I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.”
Our hearts cannot be right with Him, if we are not spending time in the Scriptures. Studying the Word shows us Who God is, and why He alone deserves our praise.
Unless we know His Word, we cannot understand the difference between right and wrong.
“Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.”
In order to know which way is wrong, we must first know the right way. Jesus Christ alone is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. We cannot be on the right way, have the Truth, or experience real life without Him.
All of this begins with knowing His Word.
Before we praise the Lord, we must know why He deserves our praise.
Before we thank the Lord, we must know what He has done for us.
Thank Him for His Word today by seeking to know Him more.
