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.
He will dwell on high; his place of defense will be the fortress of rocks. – Isaiah 33:16.
I remember a story in Alexander’s wars, that when he came to besiege the Sogdians, a people who dwelt upon a rock, or had the literal munition of rocks for their defense, they jeered him and asked him whether his soldiers had wings or no. “Unless your soldiers can fly in the air, we fear you not.” It is a most certain truth, when God exalts a people, He can set them upon a rock so high that, unless their adversaries have wings, and those more than eagles’ wings, to soar higher than God himself, they are beyond annoyance. He carries His own upon eagles’ wings; what wings, then, must they have who get above His people.
