Light Reflection-Psalm 119:9-11

February 1st, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Light Reflection is from Psalm 119, verses 9 to 11.

“How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

God’s Word is a light to help us overcome temptation. When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, Jesus responded by reciting God’s Word, and did not give in to the devil.

Taking God’s word to heart will affect the desires of our heart so that we do not want to grieve God’s heart. Our delight will be in the Lord and our fellowship with Him will take top priority in our lives.

James 4:7 urges us to submit ourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from us. Come near to God, and He will come near to us.

This Light Reflection inspires us to guard our heart from temptation by the power of God’s Word in the Year To Shine.
