Nehemiah 8:1-12. Psalm 18(19):8-11. Luke 10:1-12.
The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart – Psalm 18(19):8-11
‘The Law of the Lord is perfect, it revives the soul’
The Psalm today is truly beautiful and uplifting. The psalmist uses imagery that is so vivid and so heartening. The joy of faith is communicated so clearly and strikingly. It does not say it is easy to follow God, but the rewards are so worthwhile. The faith that inspires such beauty of image and idea is one that we can all aspire to. I encourage you to read the psalm in its entirety and to make the final line your mantra for today.
‘May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, lord my rock and my redeemer’.
