Have you ever experienced that moment when you hit your foot against a stone and you start to fall? In those few seconds, you desperately grapple for anything your hands can touch to keep you steady, to keep you from falling. In that split second you may feel a hint of fear or embarrassment, depending on how hard the fall was going to be. Ever been there?
I have, a couple of times. And at the end, when I got back up, I always wished I had somehow avoided the stone – or whatever it was that had made me fall. Wouldn’t that be great, to always avoid a fall? To avoid pain and embarrassment and always be on top, on track and on the move? It would be awesome!
This morning I came across a simple secret to keep you from falling. Are you ready for it? Read on: “Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” Psalm 119:165. Interesting. With all the uncertainty, twists and turns that come with life, God offers us a secret to keep us from stumbling: Love his law. That easy? Yes!
So how much of God’s word do you take in every day? How much of the bible do you read, listen to on the radio, watch on TV, or meditate on at night? If your answer is “a little”, you have some way to go before you really lo
ve his law.
We can all attest to the fact that if you spend enough time with someone or something, there is a good chance that you’ll come to love it, even if you didn’t at first. So you want to avoid stumbling in life? Spend some time with God’s word every day. Continue spending more time taking in his word until you fall in love with everything he says and asks you to do.
