8 I delight [chaphets] to do [`asah] thy will [ratsown], O my God ['elohiym]: yea, thy law [towrah] is within [tavek] my heart [me`ah]. KJV-Interlinear
8 I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.” ESV
All three members of the Godhead, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, follow the same divine plan. Unlike the pretend gods of Greek mythology, who are always in conflict with each other, the God of Christianity, follows one unifying and unchangeable plan.
There is only one truth, and not multiple versions of truth.
There is only one divine plan, and not multiple versions of the divine plan.
There is only one spiritual life, and not multiple versions of the spiritual life.
And while there are three individual members of the Godhead, they all possess the same essence, or attributes, wherein we refer to them as one God.
The Bible is the mind of Christ. The Bible is the mind of God. And in this verse, David speaks the words that portray the attitude of Christ toward the Father and the Spirit.
The word for God, in this verse, is in the plural, referring to all members of the Godhead.
The phrase, within my heart, teaches us that belief should come from within ourselves, and not be some superficial or external pretense, for appearances sake.
Study [by instruction],
to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]
a workman [student]
that need not be ashamed [ignorant],
rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]
the word of truth [Bible doctrine].
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
