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.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers . . .
What is man that You are mindful of him? – Psalm 8:3-4.
Just as the mountain supports the tiny blade of grass and the modest floweret, as well as the giant pine or cedar; just as that ocean bears up in safety the seabird seated on its crested waves, as well as the leviathan vessel: so, while the great Keeper of Israel can listen to the archangels’ song and the seraphs’ burning devotions, He can carry in His bosom the feeblest lamb of the fold, and lead gently the most sorrowing spirit.
