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.
The LORD . . . will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble. – Psalm 9:9.
It is reported of the Egyptians that living in fens, and being vexed with gnats, they used to sleep in high towers, whereby those creatures, not being able to soar so high, they were delivered from the biting of them; so would it be with us when bitten with cares and fears, did we but run to God for refuge, and rest confident of His help.
