Deuteronomy 27-28:19; Psalm 119:1-24; Isaiah 54, Matthew 2

God’s words are important.

Obey be blessed, disobey be  cursed.  Clear and simple.  (Deut. 27 & 28)

God’s words are precious.

With my whole heart I seek you!  Open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.  My soul is consumed with longing!  Your testimonies are my delight; they are my counselors.  (Psalm 119)

God’s words are gracious.

“In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord, your Redeemer.  (Is. 54)

God’s words are true.

…for so it was written by the prophet.
…this was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken through the prophet.
…then was fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Jeremiah.
…that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled.  (Matt. 2)

God,
You are our Maker.
We are sojourners on the earth.
You are the God of the whole earth.
We want to seek You with our whole hearts.
You are the Lord, our Redeemer.
We want Your words to be our delight.
Teach us.
Deal bountifully with us that we might live and keep your word.
Amen.
