Let Thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for Thy law is my delight. Psalm 119:77
How does God unite a law book with a song book? I’ll tell you how. With liberty and harmony. God never intended His laws to be burdensome. He meant for them to be a blessing.
A piano operates according to laws. When a person masters those laws, the drudgery of learning turns to delight. Piano practice enables a person to sit at the piano in perfect liberty and let the melody dance off the ivory keys
Isn't it marvelous how God turns statutes into songs and how law books can become songbooks? When you learn authority and submit to authority, at that same moment you learn perfect freedom. As Ethel Waters used to sing, “I sing because I’m happy. I sing because I’m free….” There’s liberty in God’s law.
Every law has a song written on the back of it. And you will discover this when you obey God’s laws. Have you yielded yourself to the Lordship of Christ? “Duty” will turn to delight.
