Thinking, praying, reading, studying the Bible – when we do these things, we are reflecting on the Word of God. To reflect is to contemplate and/or consider, and God wants us to deeply reflect on His Word so that we can better understand Him.
“As the Lord live, before whom I stand.” – 2 Kings 5:16.
Here is our defense against being led away by the gauds and shows of earth’s vulgar attractions, or being terrified by the poor terrors of its enmity. Go with this talisman in your hand, “The Lord liveth before whom I stand,” and everything else dwindles down into nothingness, and you are a free man, master and lord of all things, because you are God’s servant, seeing all things aright, because you see them all in God, and God in them all.
