Psalm 19 – God’s Glory and His Word

This Psalm begins declaring the glory, authority, and might of God. The stars in heaven proclaim His handiwork, not audibly, yet they speak as evidence of Creator God. Consider the sun (Son) coming out of His bridegroom chamber, rejoicing, as strong man completing His course; moving from one end of the earth to the other; nothing hidden from His fire and glory! Do you see the prophecy of Jesus return for His bride on the Lord’s Day?
Verse 7 moves into declaring that Creator God’s laws/rules, which are intended to regulate thought and behavior, are absolutely perfect, true, right (righteous), sure, pure, and wise. His ways will enlighten your eyes, make you wise, and bring rejoicing to your heart. The reverent fear of the Lord endures forever! So, desire His words more than fine gold or sweet pleasing honey. God’s Word has great reward do you will be warned, reminded, illuminated, and instructed in the ways to good life!
We cannot always see for ourselves our own lapses and errors. He can clear us from hidden and unconscious faults! He can hold us back from our failure to observe limits on appropriate behavior…or from being presumptous to presume we know best. Lord, do not let wrong thoughts have dominion over me!
At Your rescue and by Your Word (Jesus is the Word made flesh), and by continuing to live in Your Word, I will be made blameless, innocent, clear of great transgression.
Verse 14, “Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my firm, impenetrable Rock and my Redeemer (prophetic of jesus, the Messiah Savior Redeemer).
Psalm 119: 105, “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
2 Peter 1:19, “We have the prophetic word made firmer still. You will do well to pay close attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dismal, squalid, dark place, until the day breaks through the gloom and the Morning Star rises (comes to being) in your heart.”
