Sweeter than Honey

A popular hymn sung by a group at a local Bible college, says:  "You can't stand on God's promises if you don't know what they are." This applies to the church and to our nation that was founded on the precepts of the Bible and requires a Bible believing people to be able to keep the constitution. In the schools the Bible is not tolerated while almost every evil described in the Bible is allowed. Tolerance of sin and very  little personal responsibility is being taught. Truth is replaced by repeating back to the teacher what is politically correct.The teaching is that anything goes and that you are to have self esteem. We see people from the top down blaming someone else and not taking personal responsibility for their actions.

Psa 19:7  The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
Psa 19:8  The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Psa 19:9  The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
Psa 19:10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Psa 19:11  Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
The Bible is God's word and will to us. The law, is not just the 10 commandments. the word law is "torah", it refers to the complete word of God.

The statutes are things committed to our trust, the principals and practices of God's word.

The commandments are the doctrines; the just shall live by faith and the way of God is pure and holy.

The fear and reverence of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom and it is everlasting. The judgments, knowing right from wrong are from God and not to be altered by man or by political correctness.
God's way is pure and holy, the heart of man is evil. Our hearts are made new by the word of God and by faith in Jesus Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit we live in his will.

I agree with the Psalmist, how sweet is the word of God and Holy is the LORD, living in Him, we live forever in joy and in peace.
