Derek Prince Ministries - US : Embracing God’s Commands (153)

Today's devotion from Derek Prince's website. He has been with the Lord for several years now, but his teaching on God's Word still impacts lives today.

"Psalm 119:127-128

Because I love your
commands more than gold, more than pure gold, and because I consider all
your precepts right, I hate every wrong path. NIV

   What’s your attitude towards God’s commands? Do you fear them?
Do you resent them? Do you try to get away from them? That’s a foolish

   Remember, God gave His commands to us not to create
problems for us but to solve them, not to harm us but to help us. God’s
love is in His commands. They are given to save us from ourselves, to
save us from evil, to show us the way out of our difficulties and our

   The psalmist had learned that, that’s why he said to
God, “I love your commands more that gold, more than pure gold.” What
is more precious than gold? Nothing in this created world. But God’s
commands are infinitely more precious and the psalmist had learned that.
Instead of running from God’s commands, resenting them, obeying them
reluctantly, he said, “I love your commands more than pure gold.”

And then he said, “Because I consider all Your precepts right, I hate
every wrong path.” You see, when we love God’s commands and obey them;
automatically they reveal to us what is wrong. They show us how to
distinguish between good and evil, between what is beneficial and what
is harmful. And when we are walking in the light of God’s commands, they
keep us from everything harmful, from everything hurtful, from every
wrong path.
