November 19, Profound Thoughts
Today’s reading: Psalms 91-95
“For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord; I sing for joy at what your hands have done. How great are your works, Lord, how profound your thoughts!” - Psalm 92:4-5.
The psalmist was obviously enamored with God and all that He did. The writer also stated that God’s thoughts are profound. Have you ever considered that God’s thoughts are profound? That means they are full of meaning, insight, and knowledge. Where are God’s thoughts accessible? Of course, they are present in God’s word, which is why you must not only read the Word, but also study it, as well as listen to it preached and taught by one of God’s anointed servants. When Nehemiah rebuilt the city walls, he invited Ezra to come preach and teach about God’s word, and the people spent six hours listening to Ezra read and comment:
So on the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand. He read it aloud from daybreak till noon as he faced the square before the Water Gate in the presence of the men, women and others who could understand. And all the people listened attentively to the Book of the Law (Nehemiah 8:2-3).
How much time are you spending in God’s Word, interacting with God’s profound thoughts? Who is teaching you God’s word? Who are you teaching?
