What are some ways the Bible helps you? Look at what Psalm 19:7-11 says:
–It refreshes and heals. The Bible converts the sinner and restores the believer who stumbles (verse 7).
–It gladdens the heart. Scripture is a source of true joy (verse 8).
–It illuminates the mind. The Bible gives meaning to life (verse 8).
–It satisfies. As food satisfies the body, Scripture satisfies the soul (verse 10).
–It rewards. There is no greater reward than a clean conscience, a pure heart, and peace of mind. All this comes not just from knowing God’s Word, but keeping it (verse 11).
Lord, when the culture around me suggests a path to happiness, please remind me that true and lasting satisfaction comes through knowing You in Your Word. Amen.
