The Law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul, the statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are radiant giving light to the eyes by them your servant is warned; in keeping them is great reward.Psalm 19:7,8,11
One of the very important lessons the wee chicks have to learn is fences – that they are there for their own protection; not just to keep them in and safe, but also to keep predators out.
God’s law is like that – there for our protection, there to keep us safe. So we should not kick against those laws nor resent them, but rather grow to value and respect them.
“By them is Your servant warned, in keeping them is great reward”
We should be glad when we come across one of God’s boundaries because then we know that we are being safe-guarded, and under the protection of the Lord.
Thank you Lord for Your law, Your commands & statutes, may we see that they are there for our safe-guarding and so rejoice in them. Amen.
