Attention to His Voice
Point of Learning and Study.
It is paramount that if we are to follow Jesus and rightfully be His disciples, then we have got to understand his law and way and fully walk in it and do as it instructs us.
Many times we have faltered and done as we please because we have not heeded to the voice of the Holy spirit through His Word, but its not late to buckle up again, turn to him and do as he pleases.
Verse.1; "My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments"
God calls us sons in the first place coz He loves us but also he knows that we have attained an understanding that we can no longer be referred to as babes or even be tossed and so we are not expected to forget keeping and doing as his law instructs us, so our hearts ought to keep these sayings and not to compromise on any of them, because these are God's words of instruction urging us to walk as he pleases.
Verse.2; "For the length of days, and long life, and peace shall they add unto thee "
Rewards of those that hearken faithfully unto God's Instructions unctioned by his Word are these and much more;
a) Length of days
b) Long life
All these are ours to behold but only if we do as verse.1 does instruct us, let us avoid being blinded by short cuts and schemes of the enemy's deceit, let us follow his way and so shall we live.
Verse.3; "Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart"
Walking in compassion towards our fellow brethren, showing them love as God does oblige us and then walking in mercy is pleasing and delighting in His Sight. On top of this we ought to add truth, coz we all know that lies are what defines the devil and his cohorts, so truth is what the children of light hold and walk in.
Scripture therefore urges us to bind them about our necks and also have them in our heart-seats and not just on our lips thereby shan't the enemy rob them off us in Jesus' name.
Scripture writes and says; "Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no one goes unto the Father except through him" Jn.14:6
Meaning today, my brother, my sister when all is said and done, the question remains, "Do you have Jesus as your Personal LORD and SAVIOR?" Coz all these truths will sound interesting in your ears but they can only maximally effect with power if their entire truth is tucked deep into your heart and soul and spirit.
