The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
Everything that God has created is perfect, for he is the ultimate perfectionist. His work does not need anything added to it or anything removed from it. This is also true of His Word; we cannot make it better by adding to it but we can diminish its power by removing truth from it. There is wisdom and there is revival in following the laws of the Lord and in keeping them there is great reward (v11).
As David passed the mantle on to Solomon he said,
“Keep the charge of the Lord your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his rules, and his testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn” (1Kings 2:3).
Every part of our being prospers, body, mind and spirit, when we walk in the ways of the Lord. It revives everything within us that was made in His image, changing us to the people we were meant to be. As we open ourselves up to receive His testimonies, he imparts His wisdom to us which helps us understand scripture better and leads us into a deeper knowledge of His truth.
Meditate on His Word today and let it revive your soul.
