Great peace have those who love Your laws (Psalm 119:165).
God promises peace, great peace, to those who love His law. We must all ask ourselves the question, “Do I love God’s law?” To love God’s law is to hold the belief that His law is superior to any other laws and opinions. If that is our belief, we will strive to obey God’s law. We will seek to live our lives in harmony with His will. This is self-evident. If you love your spouse, you will want to please him or her. If you love the Kansas City Chiefs, you will cheer for them when they play. So, do you love God’s law as revealed in Scripture? If you do, you will make it primary in your daily life.
Does this mean we will always keep the law of God? Unfortunately, none of us ever keep the law of God flawlessly. We continue to come short in our desire to please Him. We will always need Jesus as our Savior, the One who died to atone for our failure to keep the law of God. Nevertheless, as Christians, we will always love God’s law. We will strive to obey Him because we know that His ways are superior to our ways. This love for God’s law combined with our love for Jesus will bring us great peace. Father, I do love Your law even though I do not always keep it. I thank You for providing a Savior who has atoned for my failures. Thank You for the great peace that comes to me as I love your law and your Savior. In His name, I pray. Amen.
