Your Statues Have Been My Song…
Blessed are the undefiled in the way,
Who walk in the law of the LORD.
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies,
And that seek him with the whole heart. ~ Psalm 119:1-2 KJB
We are witnesses to God and to the mighty works He does in our life. We are to carry forth our testimony and share it with others that they, too, may come to accept Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, as their Savior.
what about God’s testimony before the world? Do we listen, do we pursue, do we love and cherish the testimonies of God? Are not our testimonies actually His testimony of the power, strength, love and faith our God has in us? If we accept the wondrous works done through our lives in Jesus Christ, then we should praise only Him and look to the law as our guide. The testimony of God is our life.
Remove from me reproach and contempt:
For I have kept thy testimonies.
Princes also did sit and speak against me:
But thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.
Thy testimonies also are
My delight and my counsellors. ~ Psalm 119:22-24 KJB
God showers our lives with free will but we are to walk in His will, not ours. We are to share God’s testimony not ours. It is His will that we seek, then follow, that aligns our lives in eh path of righteousness. We are incapable to doing the right thing. It is only by grace and mercy that we have anything, including our life. All praise, honor and glory are to God and our life is His testimony. We are merely an empty vessel that carries His word, performs His wondrous works and reflects the Light that are His eyes that make heaven to sing.
If we can wrap our head around the idea that our life is in God and God alone then we can accept the Truth of every breath being a gift from God.
Who or what can harm us if we walk with the Lord? What weapon can be formed against us that shall stand?
Can we not be wrapped in cellophane, hanged by our feet and cut upon our flesh and yet still sing praise to the Lord, Jesus Christ? Would we not find Jesus Christ in the very pain and ask our jailer to send us Home?
Horror hath taken hold upon me
Because of the wicked that forsake thy law.
Thy statutes have been my songs
In the house of my pilgrimage.
I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law.
This I had, because I kept thy precepts. ~ Psalm 119:53-56 KJB
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
