red letter bible

I’m looking at three issues in Chapter 19 NIV:

1.  Verses 1-4 Everyone has been exposed to some knowledge of God via nature.  Everyone has “heard the voice” of God in that way.  If you respond and tell him you want to know better, trust him and listen.

2.  Verses 7-11 The benefits of God’s law: Since they are perfect, they revive the soul; since they are trustworthy, I gain wisdom from them; since they are right, I receive joy; since they are radiant, I receive light to my eyes. For me that means truth, excitement, anticipation, adventure.

Since his ordinances are sure and righteous, more precious than gold, sweeter than honey, I can follow them; I can be warned, be cautioned, be guided, and also be sure of great reward!

His words are exquisite!  (Hey, Bloggers, I worked in a word of the day. :D)

3.  Verses 13-14 Prayer against both hidden and willful sins. May my thoughts be pleasing to God, my Rock, my Redeemer.


Word Press word of the day “exquisite.”

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
