Simple Awesome Wisdom

Psalm 19 is a favorite Psalm for me. David wrote this Psalm. It’s powerpacked with two of my favorite things. At the start it talks about one of God’s gorgeous creations, the sky. At the end it goes into detail about the amazing awesomeness of God’s Word. Then it finishes off with a verse reminder to guard your thoughts and words!

Psalm 19:

7The instructions of the Lord are perfect,
    reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.
The commandments of the Lordare right,
    bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
    giving insight for living.
Reverence for the Lord is pure,
    lasting forever.
The laws of the Lord are true;
    each one is fair.
10 They are more desirable than gold,
    even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
    even honey dripping from the comb.
11 They are a warning to your servant,
    a great reward for those who obey them.

12 How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
    Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant from deliberate sins!
    Don’t let them control me.
Then I will be free of guilt
    and innocent of great sin.

14 May the words of my mouth
    and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you,
    O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
