Regaining Our Biblical Mind!

 

Psalms 119:103‑120

103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!  104 Through thy precepts I get understand: therefore I hate every false way. 105   Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.  107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.  108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.  109 My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.  110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts. 111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart. 112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes always, even unto the end.  113 I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.  114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

 

  1. - This Psalm is in a category all of its own.
  2. - It is like  none of the rest,
  3. - It shines and stands out from any other writings of the Psalmist.

 

The Theme of the Psalm is David’s deep passion toward the Word of God.

 

He starts in Verse 103 by saying   “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”  Verse 105 he continues “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” In verse 114 he states his passion again “Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.”

 

We can see that, David had a deep passion and desire to be committed to the Word of God.

 

We are living in an age and a generation whereby we too, need that deep sense of Compassion for God’s Word to be restored. 

 

This is an hour where we can clearly see that Commitment and Loyalty to the WORD of GOD is fast becoming a thing of the past.

 

Paul warned Timothy that this day would come.‑‑

2 Timothy 4:3 -4   For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

 

We’ve lost our biblical mind, and we have not put something better in its place simply because there is nothing better to replace it!

 

Friends I am convinced that it is imperative in this hour that we regain our Biblical mind again, get back to the Word of God in our daily living and that our Churches and Ministers would again raise the Standard and Preached Sound, Biblical Doctrine without fear of Man.

 

Like the Psalmist we need to have a great appreciation for the Word — we need to become more Biblically Minded ---

 

As David we need to “hide the word in our hearts that we may not sin against Him”

 

Like a skeleton to the physical body so is Sound Doctrine to the Child of God.  The Word of God gives the body structure and stability.  The Word helps us stand up straight. It’s Marrow to the Bones.

 

We are reminded in Ps 63:5  

“My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.”

 

2 Timothy 2:15 stresses the importance of believing sound, biblical doctrine:  "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth"

 

Friends let us in the days ahead strive to regain our Biblical Mind!
