April 30, 2020: Reason to rejoice-God’s Word Makes us the Richest in the Universe

 

Psalm 119:72 (NIV)
72 The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.

Answer this question before you read further.  Who is the richest person in the world right now?  Do not read past this line until you answer this question.  Use google if you need.

So who does Google say is the richest person in the world right now?  Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffet . . .?

What is your answer? 

I have some bad news to tell you.  Google is wrong!  Surprise!

Who is the richest person in the world right now?  Look at the text for today.  One versions says that one word from your law is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of Gold and silver.

So let us do some math for fun today.  At the present price per ounce, gold is selling for 1700 dollars and ounce.  IF each word from God was valued at the price of a thousand pieces of gold that would make each word from God worth $52,873,400.  David goes on to say that he esteemed the Law of the Lord like one who had found a priceless treasure.

The Word of God connects us with our Creator and opens up lines of communication with Him that no one else gets in on without Jesus.

Today dear Saint you no longer need to go around wishing you had more than what you have because you already have more than can be contained in the entire universe for you have the very presence of God in you available to help you through any circumstance or trial.

How would you react if you were just told you have won the Billion-dollar lottery?  Well.  I have great news for you, you have not only won something far more valuable, but the government will not tax any of it.

Now go pick up a Bible and open it and let the Lord lead you to see and savor its contents as one who has just found a buried treasure.
