Gospel Song | “Those Who Cherish God’s Word Are Blessed”
Those who are willing to accept God’s scrutiny
are those who pursue an understanding of Him,
who are willing to accept His words.
They are the ones who will receive God’s inheritance and blessings,
and they are the most blessed.
God curses those who have no place for Him in their hearts,
and He chastises and forsakes such people.
God works in those who pursue and treasure His words.
The more you treasure God’s words, the more His Spirit will work in you.
The more a person treasures God’s words,
the greater their chance of being perfected by God.
God perfects those who truly love Him,
and He perfects those whose hearts are at peace before Him.
To treasure all of God’s work, to treasure God’s enlightenment,
to treasure God’s presence, to treasure God’s care and protection,
to treasure how God’s words become your reality and provide for your life—
all this accords best with God’s heart.
If you treasure God’s work, that is,
if you treasure all the work that He has done upon you,
then He will bless you and cause all that is yours to multiply.
You should strive to make God’s words your reality,
and be able to satisfy Him and be after His own heart;
you should not merely strive to enjoy His grace.
Nothing is more important for believers
than to receive God’s work, gain perfection,
and become those who do God’s will.
