“Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.” -Psalm 119:24
What comfort we receive like the psalmist, from the Word of God. When the world around us crumbles, relationships sour, people disappoint and harm us, we know where to go to steady our hearts. In the tumbler of affliction and in green pastures, God will quiet our souls with His good Word filled with His promises, revealing His character, His ways, His counsel. What better Counselor has He given His children than His Blessed Holy Spirit? Truly God will never forsake us but especially in our peril. Those in Christ can never be separated from God ever again. The Living Word is taught to us by the Spirit. As He guides us along the Lord’s path, the Words of God are illuminated to our minds, becoming precious to us. The longer we walk with God the more we delight in His wisdom. Truly the soul in Christ is eternally rich.
Grace upon grace,
