Rules with Help

May 9th, 2011

I read this today from the Life Application Study Bible Devotion. It is short and I thought I would share it…Enjoy!

Psalm 119:27 – “Help me understand the meaning of your commandments, and I will meditate on your wonderful deeds”.

Our lives are cluttered with rule books, but the authors never come with us to help us follow the rules. But God does. That is the uniqueness of our Bible. God not only provides the rules and guidelines, but comes with us personally each day to strengthen us so that we can live according to those rules. All we must do is invite him and respond to his direction.

I really love the thought that God didn’t just give us the rules and leave us to it. He gave us some rules or boundaries and said I am with you to help.

It is not easy to live the Christian life at times…it is good to know we don’t have to do it alone.
