Reflecting With God 1/18/2023

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.

Wednesday Reflecting

I will hear what God the LORD will speak. – Psalm 85:8.

Wilt thou indeed? Art thou really purposed to ascertain what revelation there is of thy Creator’s will concerning thee?… But this determination of thine will amount to nothing, just nothing, if there be not in thee a willingness to hear all that the Lord will speak. If out of a hundred words of God, thou fix upon one and resolve to honor it while the rest lie all dishonored, that word which thou hearest will turn against thee, and in the last day bring on thee additional condemnation. How many fancy that they are hearkening to God’s word, while all the time they are only hearkening to their own heart’s lusts. Half a dozen pages would contain all their Bible—theirs truly, not God’s. It is impossible to hear what God the Lord will speak, while a thousand vain voices are allowed to have thy attention. There is too much noise in thine own heart for thee to hear. Thou art too much busied about thine own will, to become acquainted with the will of God. The Lord will not lead thee by the right hand, while another leads thee by the left.
~ BOWEN
