GOD'S WORDS ARE DIVINE LAWS
The Word of God is our constant guide. They are divine laws and true wisdom from God. They can also be defined as realities articulated with the words imparted to us by the Spirit and not with the words taught by human wisdom. Simply put, divine laws are Spirit-revealed truths integrated with Spirit-revealed words.
Reference: Psalm 119:111 ►New Living Translation (NLT)
'Your laws are my treasure; they are my heart’s delight.'
The Scripture is called the "laws" of God because they are the divine principles and morals of God's will - conceived as universal and unchanging. These laws reveal or make God known to us. They testify of all His attributes, wisdom, power, justice, goodness and truth. As a law, it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (see Hebrews 4:12).
King David expressed and testified of the gratifications he derived from the satisfaction of God's laws or divine will. He treasured the Word so much that he felt thrilled, blessed and enraptured by it. However it is important to note that He was not worshipping the Scriptures, but rather He treasured the One and the wisdom revealed in it. God's Word is the revelation of Himself to us. It is God's wisdom expressed.
The reason the Scriptures (God's laws) are perfect, sure, right, enduring, and righteous is because God is so. His revelation reveals, reflects, and is consistent with His character and nature. So treasuring the Word and meditating on the laws make us wise, joyful, revived and enlightened.
Colossians 3:16 (KJV) says, 'Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom...' Notice that God's law here, is described as the Word of Christ. Why must we let the Word of Christ (God's law) dwell richly in us? It is because God does not give us life, wisdom, joy or anything as gift, outside of His Word. He gives us His Word, and then we obtain all those things in the Word, as we take the Word in. It is the Word of God that points us to the God of the Word, who then completely satisfies our soul with Himself and His gifts.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:13, "We impart [God's truth] in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual." This is what we have here - God's law mediated to us in the divinely taught words - by the Spirit. Also in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, the Bible says, 'All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.' In other words, the Scriptures are divine laws used for teaching, reproof, corrections, etc.
When you read God's Word, its not enough to get excited or simply marvel at the content of the book. That's not what it means by treasuring the Word. We must meditate on what it reveals to us until it saturates our mind and penetrates our spirit. Then we can reflect on the One to whom it points, act on His sayings, and enjoy the benefits He offers. That's how to treasure the Word of God and make them your heart's delight.

Heavenly Father, I'm glad to know that the Scriptures contain your righteous laws and wonderful testimonies. My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times because they are your direct line of communication with me. As I treasure and meditate on them, my life is transformed from glory to glory and I live in your unlimited grace. I'm grateful for the growing love and appetite I have for your Word, and for this reason, I worship you as my greatest treasure, in Jesus' Name, Amen!
