The Government –
15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the Lord thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:
19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:
20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.
The Word of of God was to be kept as part of the Rulers daily study material. It was to be used to perform his duties and to lead the peoople. The government was to be righteous and treating people fairly.
God’s word was to be used in measuring all kinds of matters. It was to be used as a guide to help the that leader know God’s counsel.
For us today the Word has been given to us in order for us to giovern our lives. It is to be used daily to offer to us God’s counsel. It is also more rich than in times past for we have the Author of the same living within our hearts. Jesus the Word made flesh came to be our redeemer, our Savior. He took away the division caused by our sin. He paid for our transgressions so we could be made free.
Today God’s Word is even more beneficial to us for it is also given to us with the understanding of the Holy Spirit which provides us with a more personal way of applying scripture to our lives.
In 2 Timothy 3, scripture tells us the usefulness of God’s word in our lives. It states,
” 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Lord instruct me, teach me.
Let my my life be led by thee.
Let your word be
the very bread that feeds my soul.
I long to please you and walk in your truth.
I long to bring you glory and praise.
Show me in the way, How to recognize your voice.
I will surely stay in your direction.
I know my purpose is to live
My life to glorify your name.
