Lead, Keep, Speak

Proverbs 6:20-22
20 My son, keep your father’s command, And do not forsake the law of your mother.
21 Bind them continually upon your heart; Tie them around your neck.
22 When you roam, they will lead you; When you sleep, they will keep you; And when you awake, they will speak with you.

What a great picture of the active role of God's law in our lives. Not the leagalistic practices of religion, but that which has been written in the hearts of men (Heb. 8:10). These commandments, this law, is the expression if a living, dynamic, active relationship that God has with His people. Jesus simplified these guidelines down to loving God and loving others (Mt. 22:36-40). The Holy Spirit enables us to live this way. These things I know. But I don't often reflect on how profoundly my life is shaped by these directives.

This Proverb says that this value system has benefit in every area of my life. As I am active on the journey of being a follower of Jesus, I have the direction and guidence that I need. Even as I sleep, just as my mind and body is being renewed, the Word refreshes my spirit and renews my mind. When I am awake I find the Holy Spirit speaking to me, that in the circumstances of my life I have these coversations with God - about what He's doing, the affirmation He gives to me as His child, the assignements He's giving me for the day. It's like I'm a stereo tuned into a station whose broadcast is recieved loud and clear. Whether I am wandering (or "wondering"), as I sleep or while I am awake, God's Word is shaping my life.
