Many see the Word of God. . .few observe!

Rachel, did you read and study the Bible today? Have you dipped your heart in the Word of God? Where should you start? Consider the following verse from Psalms.
 
Psalm 19:7a (NIV)
The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul

 
The Torah was considered the first five books of the Bible. It was the law given to Moses for the Hebrew people. It could be considered the anchor of God’s Word, the cornerstone of the Jewish faith and the foundation of the greatest commandments given by Jesus. It includes the Ten Commandments, the Hebrew Shema (Deut. 6:4-6) and other commandments upon which the Christian faith is based. The Hebrew word for law is Torah.
 

  • 9368 תּוֹרָה (tô·rā(h)): n.fem.; ≡ Str 8451, 8452; TWOT 910d—1. LN 33.333–33.342 law, regulation, i.e., a legal prescription of something that should or must be done (Ex 12:49; Lev 6:2); 2. LN 33.224–33.250 teaching, instruction, i.e., information that is imparted to a student (Ps 78:1; Pr 1:8); 3. LN 33.35–33.68 Torah, the Law, i.e., a written code (Ne 8:2); 4. LN 33.35–33.68 unit: סֵפֶר הַ־ תּוֹרָה (sē·p̄ěr hǎ- tô·rā(h)) Book of the Law, i.e., a written code (Dt 28:61); 5. LN 33.35–33.68 unit: תּוֹרָה מֹשֶׁה (tô·rā(h) mō·šě(h)) Law of Moses, i.e., a written code (Jos 8:31); 6. LN 33.35–33.68 unit: תּוֹרָה יהוה (tô·rā(h) yhw(h)) Law of the Lord, i.e., a written code (1Ch 16:40); 7. LN 41.25–41.28 manner, custom, i.e., the usual way of doing something (2Sa 7:19)[1]

 
This scripture in Psalms describes those first five books as perfect. The Hebrew word translated perfect in the New International Version is Tamim.
 

 
Validation for the Word of God begins with the Old Testament Torah. It is morally sound and without defect. Most importantly it refreshes the soul.
 
Does your heart need a dip in the fresh water of God’s Word? Do you need to remove the thick barnacles that have naturally gathered on your heart, mind and soul? Fresh water will accomplish that task. It causes salt water barnacles to die and fall off the hulls of ocean going ships.
 
Take a refreshing dip in His Word now.
