Quickened With His Precepts

Forever, O Lord, thy Word is settled heaven, thy faithfulness is unto all generations: Thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. They continue this day according to thine ordinances for all are thy servants. Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction. I will never forget thy precepts, for with them thou hast quickened me. I am thine, save me, for I have sought thy precepts. The wicked have waited for me: to destroy me but I will consider thy testimonies. I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad. Psalm 119:89-96

Today, we're looking into the holy scriptures and discovering secrets in the secret place—nuggets of truth to set us free from the troops of darkness that would seek to destroy your faith, your life. 

The aforementioned scripture discloses, that in affliction, it wasn't the arm of flesh, neither was it chariots of iron, or the help of man that delivered from affliction, but hear it now: "I should then have perished in mine affliction. I will never forget thy precepts for with them thou hast quickened me."

Precept is defined as  1. A commandment or direction given as a rule of action or conduct.  2. An injunction as to moral conduct.

God's precepts are His Word—His direction for us to conduct ourselves in ways that would be pleasing to Him and show forth His praise. To build character and give us strength. As we delight ourselves in His preceipts, we are quickened in the inner man. 

God's precepts are all encompassing of His love and power, and brings with them enormous joy to the one who seeks and obeys them.

Many a time on life's journey, we experience afflictions of various sorts. Some are of our own making due to poor choices, lack of wisdom, knowledge and understanding, or not having discretion and moderation. Others due to persecution for being a follower of Christ and an ambassador of His gospel.

Know that God is able to raise us up (revive), and make us stand firm. His Word will quicken and sustain us in our weakest, darkest moments. His Word is exceedingly powerful and quick, and accomplishes all that it is sent to do. 

Meditate on His Word; delight in it. Bare our hearts before God, and wait patiently on Him. He will see us through. Bless our faithful God! Amen.
