Great Spoil!

Psalms 119:161-162

(161)  SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

(162)  I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.


Have you ever accidentally come across something that has great value?  When I was a young child, I found $20.  It was Awesome!  I thought I hit the jackpot!  After I explained to my parents that I found it and where I found it, I got to enjoy it!  I definitely rejoiced!  The verses above convict me because David is saying that He rejoices at God’s Word as if it were a found treasure!  I get convicted because there are times that my Bible reading happens because I make myself read it rather than wanting to read it.  No matter if I want to read it or not, I should still read my Bible…and so should all of us.

Do you rejoice at God’s Word?  I have found a lot of times that once I get started, I then get reminded by God how wonderful His Word really is and how much He loves you and me.  Before I know it, I am loving it and I find myself not wanting to put it down.  This also helps me to keep in perspective the things that I value.  I should value God’s Word more than any spoil that I have or will receive.

Last Question:  What do you value most in life?  Not according to what you think, but rather according to what you do.
