“Thy word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee.” (Psalm 119:11)
“I glorify You for the Bible – that wonderful, written revelation of You and Your plan. As snow and rain fall from the skies to meet our needs, so You have condensed Your thoughts – which are vastly higher than all human thoughts – into written form. I’m so grateful that You cared enough to communicate with us in this clear, unchanging, always-accessible way, so that Your thoughts are now available at all times to refresh and nourish and teach me … and that You are still a communicating God, speaking these words to me as I am attentive to You, as I read and meditate with a listening heart. What a privilege it is to store Your Word in my heart, where You can use it at any moment to bless me and guide me … to keep me from sinning against you … and to be a storehouse of inspired words that the Spirit can bring to my mind to help others.
Thank you that the Holy Spirit inspired Your Word and uses it to enlighten and guide me, and to change me more and more into Your image, from one degree of glory to another.
