Here's a tool guaranteed to make your life better

Psalm 19 is one of the great works of poetry in the Bible. The entire psalm is about how God reveals Himself to us.

The first half describes God's revelation of Himself in nature. David uses examples from creation to highlight God's creativity, orderliness, and reliability.

The second half lists the benefits of God's written revelation. David was speaking mostly of the Law (Genesis-Deuteronomy), but the principles can also be applied to the entire Bible. Below are 6 ways God's Word can change your life:
  • God's Word can Revive the Soul
    • (get a fresh start)
  • God's Word can Make the Simple Wise
    • (make better decisions)
  • God's Word can Rejoice the Heart
    • (find joy in hard times)
  • God's Word can Enlighten the Eyes
    • (gain a healthier perspective)
  • God's Word can Warn your Servant
    • (avoid bad choices)
  • God's Word can Bring Great Reward
    • (live as God created you to)

Psalm 19 is a motivational chapter (it's much better than any motivational speaker who may be living in a van down by the river). I hope you'll be motivated to get into God's Word on your own!
