more on… His Word… a solid place to land…

Yet again… this morning… He leads me to another reminder of the solidity… trustworthiness… and power of His Word…

A note… written next to Psalm 33… a reminder that He gave me this psalm to rest in… awaiting another surgery… on a different loved one…

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;
it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song;
play skillfully, and shout for joy.
For the word of the Lord is right and true;
he is faithful in all he does.
The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of his unfailing love.
Psalm 33:1-5
And I wonder… If one rejects the solidity of His Word…? where do they go to find stability…? And how do you know what’s true…? if part is in error…? which parts…? who chooses…? And what about testing the spirits…? and teachings of others…? where do you go to check the validity…? if you can’t go to the Word…?

By faith… He calls us to believe He created the universe… 
By faith we understand that the universe 
was formed at God’s command, 
so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Hebrews 11:3
…and by His word no less…
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made,
their starry host by the breath of his mouth…
Psalm 33:6
Considering the expanse… complexity… and enormity… of creation… it’s not much of a leap of faith… to believe He wrote a book…
An eternal… timeless book… written from His perspective…
This book… His Book… has been integral to my walk of faith… it’s a gracious gift… the one temporal thing He’s given us… with which to seek Him out…
By His Spirit… I meet Him in it’s pages… 
He speaks… comforts… guides… corrects…
Never have I found it’s message lacking…
nor His way… faulty…
Now… I haven’t always liked what I found in His Word… there have been some painful wrestling matches along the way… but in the end… I know He’s right… and I’m wrong… and there is no other way… no other words of life
The more I pursue Him… through His Word… obedience… prayer… the more healing I find… more peace… more joy… in living His Way… not mine…
He says…
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Psalm 34:8
I’ve tasted… by eating His Word…
And Yes… He is good…
Won’t you taste too…?
