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.
Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips . . . then one of the seraphim flew to me . . . and said: “Behold . . . your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.” – Isaiah 6:5-7.
Soon as the word is uttered, “I have sinned,” that very moment flies the seraph. God “is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.” When we confess them in the name of Jesus, justice, having been satisfied by the blood of Christ, is swift to pardon.
