Staying Focused

And it shall be, when he sits upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

Deuteronomy 17:18-19

God knew that eventually Israel would want to be ruled by kings. So, before they entered the Promised Land, He provided instructions specifically to help them choose a king wisely.

First God stressed that each king needed to write his own copy of the law and “read in it all the days of his life.” It was not enough to know about God’s Word. It had to be central to their lives. God knew that His Word would provide focus, keep the kings humble, and give them the wisdom to make the right decisions.

Each of us needs this same commitment to the Word of God. Many Christians have lives marked by doubt. Others are filled with fear and worry or fail to experience victory. To be protected, blessed, and guided by God, we need to read, study, and think about His Word continually. We need to make the Bible personal in our lives every day.
