Eternally His

June 4, 2010

Not long after I became a Christian I began to have an insatiable appetite for the Word of the Living God. The more I studied, the more rich God’s Word became and the more I wanted to know. As I peeled back the layers of each word I was in awe at the vast significance unearthed in each nugget.

I began to saturate my heart and mind with Psalm 119 and soon found myself longing for the Word of God more than anything else.  I often pray…

“Open my eyes, that I may see
Wondrous things from Your law.” Psalm 119:18

“Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes,
And I shall keep it to the end.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law;
Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
Make me walk in the path of Your commandments,
For I delight in it.
Incline my heart to Your testimonies,
And not to covetousness.
Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things,
And revive me in Your way.
Establish Your word to Your servant,
Who is devoted to fearing You.” Psalm 119:33-38

God’s Word gives light, life, wisdom, direction, comfort, faith, joy and peace. It gives us a correct view of God and helps us know Him more. It changes us; it speaks life into the dried  bones of our circumstances. It is real; it is powerful and profound; it is absolutely necessary if we’re going to do this journey called life, right.

Sometimes I’m just blown away by the fact that God chooses to use us and allows us the privilege of being part of His plan on this planet! Being invited to be part of the Scripture Dig team is one of those things that blows me away. I’m so excited about Teri Lynne’s heart of ministry for the Word and for women and I’m thankful for the privilege of joining this group of godly girlfriends in hopes of encouraging others in their journey with Jesus! There’s nothing like knowing Him, growing in His Word and being confident that we are eternally His.

So, come on girls, we’ve got some diggin’ to do!

    You know what’s funny, I was raised in church, but there is always something in the bible I have never seen before. So awesome and amazing.

    Hi Sherri,
    Thanks for popping in! I popped over to your site and loved it! I love the “Observation” “Application” “Prayer” direction for your posts!

    And you are so right…God’s Word is so profound! Unfathomable riches!

    I’m really looking forward to the journey with you, Stephanie. I know I need godly gals in my life to help keep my eyes off of those “worthless things” and turned to all that God has for us.

    Stephanie,
    This is probably one of my most favorite passages! We have started studying the Psalms at church and the pastor started with Psalm 119. I’ve taken the first two “paragraphs” and really dug into all the different action verbs that I can “do” with His Word, i.e. “keep”, “understand”, “obey”, “walk”, “seek”, etc. So very rich indeed!

    Blessings to you my friend!

    Hi Tara,
    I’m such a big Psalm 119 fan! I’d say it’s my favorite chapter, but I have so many favorites.

    I love the way dug deeper into the meaning of the verbs and looked at how you could apply them! Knowledge without application has no recognizable value.

    Rich indeed! 🙂
    Eternally His,
    Steph
