God’s Wisdom Refreshes Your Soul And Brightens Your Eyes
Some days, you work and work, and then it feels like you need a little picker-upper to give you a little boost of energy to see you through the workday. Sometimes you grab a coffee or a guilty bite of a candy bar, and once the caffeine or sugar rush burns off, you find yourself again depleted. However, if you had grabbed the Word of God or a short prayer walk around the building, you would have seen your energy, emotions, and intellect revived. The Word of God is refreshing to your soul when you allow it to enter your awareness!
Our psalmist says that the statutes of the Lord can be trusted to make even a simple person wise. I so desperately need that reassurance! Some days, I don’t know what I want to do. Other days, I do not know how to do what I know I must do. I don’t have the answers I desperately need. I feel so dumb sometimes. Don’t you?
Listen, the statutes, the Word of God, will make even the simplest person wise. As you read the Word of God, your mind and understanding begin to open up, and Holy Spirit can guide us forward where we were stuck before. The psalmist writes that the precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. I don’t know about you, but I become filled with joy when I do the right thing. Joy wells up in my soul whenever I have an opportunity to live righteous before the Lord.
