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.
Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew? From whose womb comes the ice? And the frost of heaven, who gives it birth? – Job 38:28-29.
Who could go to a picture gallery and while admiring the beautiful blending of the colors, and the perfect outline of the various pictures, could ever believe the pictures came by chance, and that no mind conceived them and no hand painted them? Who then can look out upon this glorious earth, with all its wondrous form and color, which seem to defy all the best attempts of our greatest geniuses, and then disbelieve in the great Artist of the universe, the God who painted the sunset and gave to the lily its sweet fragrance, its delicate texture and its lovely hue? No, there is a God Who made us all, and He is the King of all the earth. Away, then, with treason and rebellion; be loyal to God.
