O how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
As I read the above verse this morning it reminded me of times before personal computers and mobile phones. Yes, we did survive without them! People still wrote letters by hand and also, eagerly watched out the window in the morning for the return letter from their postman. I remember the excitement of receiving love letters from my now dear wife all these years ago. I sought a private space to smell, open, and read every line…several times. A reply letter was started quickly, but took time to write as I re-read the received letter over and over many times. This should be our relationship with our Bible. The Word of God in my view is the best Love letter ever written to us.
Each day we should excitedly anticipate reading our Bible, expecting to receive Words from our Father God. Like I did with letters from Susan, I read my Bible in a private space. This for me is first thing in the morning at the dining table before anyone else rises. I read it over several times allowing it to soak into my mind and spirit, looking for wee gems in the text. From His Word to me each morning comes prayers and notes in my devotional diary, which often produce devotionals like this one.
Dear reader, are you excited by your Bible each morning? Do you read it as a personal correspondence from Almighty God, your Father for your guidance? I hope I have encouraged you to view your Bible in a different light, encouraging you to soak in its pages each day.
