Psalm 119:93 (NKJV) 93 I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life.
Our walk with God is a walk of faith. We put our faith in Him, and He changes our hearts, a little at a time. His desires become our desires.
He does this by teaching us His ways, His precepts.
Those precepts, if we allow them to, will penetrate us. And by doing so, they change the way we see, the way we think and the way we act.
They make us a new creation by way of transformation.
Putting our faith in Christ makes us a new creation by way of washing us clean of our sins. This is the redemptive work accomplished by the blood of Christ.
It is the subsequent adopting of God’s precepts in our lives that then begins a transformative work that alters our lifestyle as He uses those precepts (principles) to teach us His ways.
The cumulative effect of learning and adopting those precepts is what makes us who God wants us to become.
Why? Because as we allow God’s principles of truth to change our heart, we will begin to put the desires of God before our own desires. This is the bedrock (foundation) of growing and maturing as a believer.
Some may argue that precepts are nothing more than principles that are based on works. This is true only if those precepts are walked out in rote or as part of rituals.
But if we genuinely live them out in our lives because we understand their importance, and because we desire to please God, they will no longer be just works-based principles.
They will be like little pieces of roots that dig deeper and deeper into the earth, drawing our sustenance from God and His word, strengthening us so that not even the most brutal of life’s storms will be able to uproot us.
