Morning Prayer #17

Psalms 19:7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

We often think of laws as burdens. And in human systems, they usually are. But God’s laws are perfect, and He has given them to us not to weigh us down, but so that we may be renewed by them. Love God, and love others. This is the summary of God’s law. And as His law grows us in wisdom, we are renewed by venturing deeper into His love.

Lord, Your love knows no bounds. I thank You for giving me Your perfect law, which guides me in Your truth and centers me in Your love. Teach me to see Your love in every command and decree. Grow me in wisdom so that I may experience the full refreshment and renewal of Your love through Your commands. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
