“Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.” Psalm 119:9Text — Psalms 119:9-16
The word of God is as powerful as God Himself. He demonstrates His power through the spoken words. “Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?” (Ecclesiastes 8:4). The Bible points to the word as the divine cleansing agent for our body, soul and spirit. Jesus our Lord and Saviour also confirmed this fact when He ministered to His disciples. “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” (John 15:3) As young boys and girls, you need God’s cleansing agent – the Word of God. Are your attitude and actions pleasing to God? Are your behaviour and conduct acceptable to Him? Are your thoughts and speech right before Him? Is your heart right in the sight of God? You cannot cleanse yourself from any uncleanness neither can anyone do it for you. It is only God that can do it.
Therefore, submit yourself to the word of God to cleanse you from dirty things. With this powerful cleansing agent from the Lord, you will be able to take heed to His word, meditate on, reverence His word and serve Him faithfully and acceptably.
