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.
And He led them on safely. – Psalm 78:53.
What a God is ours! He overthrows our foes in the sea, and disciplines His people in the desert. He leads us over the burning sand, and rests us in luxuriant glades. He permits disappointment at Marah, and surprises us at Elim. He leads us by a cloud; but He speaks to us by a human voice. He counts the number of the stars; but He feeds His flock like a shepherd, and gently leads those that give suck. He chooses a thundercloud as the canvas on which He paints His promise in rainbow hues. He proves by Marah, and at Elim recruits us.
