“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Amos 4:13

TODAY’S WORD…

.

He it was who formed the mountains,

created the wind,

reveals His mind to man,

makes both dawn and dark,

and walks on the top of the heights of the world

– the Lord, the God of Hosts, is His name.

.

– Amos 4:13

REFLECTION…

.

How great God is!

This is what these few lines celebrate

– the power of God over all creatures;

over those things that man finds most awesome.

.

Celebrating the greatness of God is a confession of faith in the Lord,

and this can only be done – in truth – because God reveals Himself to us.

.

God reveals himself to us through the awesomeness of nature;

through the natural principles of righteousness embedded in our conscience.

.

God reveals himself, in particular, through the direct action of the Holy Spirit,

who guides those who deeply desire to know the truth,

and gradually makes things known to their intellect.

.

It is the Spirit who brings Scripture to life, by illuminating our reason,

and causing great floods of truth to flow into our soul through God’s Word.

.

How great God is!

.

.

PRAYER…

.

How great You are, Lord!
