Mind of Christ | September 10
Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.
You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; for they are ever with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Your precepts.
I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I may keep Your word.
I have not departed from Your judgments, for You Yourself have taught me.
How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Father, we can say boldly that we have access to the mind of Christ and that You teach us all things we must know, things that exceed the wisdom of man. We look to our teachers for wisdom and You tell us that Your testimony to us exceeds that of our teachers and the “ancients”, those who lived before Jesus. How can we not look to Your Holy Word for guidance, every day? For conveying such love toward us, we are eternally grateful.
We want to restrain our feet from pursuing evil but absent a personal relationship with You, we feel impotent and weak. Strengthen our resolve to serve You this day.
Help us commit to memory Your Holy words and teachings. Be a personal Light to us this day, guiding us in Your ways and executing Your will, with courage and humility. We seek to serve You better and better each day. In the Holy name of Jesus we pray, amen.
