Psalm 119

      Psalm 119 closes with the thought for God’s people to Honor God’s Word.  Listen to what he says in vv. 171, 172, 175 meaning if you Honor God’s Word and put God’s Word first in your life, you will have something to sing about and Not Complain about. When your heart Delights in God’s Word (vs. 174, Psalm 1). Your lips Must declare God’s praise (Matthew 12:34). God inhabits the Praises of his people. After all, you talk about the things that you love. When God’s Word fills your heart the right words will come out of your mouth (Colossians 3:16, 4:6).

God’s Word will do great things for you, if you allow it to work in your life. Now its time to discover what you must do with God’s word. You must do more than Simply read it, although that is necessary. You should also love it (v.97) treasure it (v.72) learn it (vv.26-27), memorize it (v.11) and meditate on it (v.15), believe it (v.42) and practice (vv.1-4) be ye doers of the word Not hearers only (James 1:22).

I Thessalonians 5:18

      As we sit around the table on Thanksgiving Day with family and friends how thankful are you? Gratitude and contentment go together like turkey and dressing.

They feed each other, and are both fostered by FAITH.

To be contented is to rest in Christ and trust, he is in control. Circumstances, good or bad are opportunities for Him to Show Himself Faithful. So once you go to God in gratitude, you can live in contentment, which grows in the rich soil of gratitude.

Sow seeds of prayer into that soil, and you will reap an abundance. You are able to overcome adversity because the almighty has gone before you.  Thank God often, and trust Him to cultivate your contentment. (2 Corinthians 6:4-10).
