Deuteronomy 17:19–It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the Lord his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees.
The king of the Israelite people was to be an expert in God’s law. He was to write his own copy of that law and have it with him everywhere he went. As a person who regularly enforced God’s law, he had to know it and understand it and live it out in his own life. How can we hope to keep God’s commands if we don’t spend time reading God’s word? We must take the same approach and spend time daily in God’s word.
Father, I praise You for all that You have done. Your word is all that I desire and I will spend time learning and studying it so that when the times comes to apply it, it is readily known.
