Just as the Glory of God is known throughout the heavens – in the rising and setting of the sun, in its warmth and light, in the gathering of clouds and the falling of rain, in the beauty of the moon and stars, in the breadth and height of the skies – so is His Glory known through His Word. For it reveals the Truth which illumines our understanding and exposes all that hides in the darkness. It warms us to His Presence and grants comfort in times of trouble. The Word of God is pure like rain, showering down to nurture and grow the faith of the LORD’s beloved ones. It is a beautiful twinkling hope, made brighter in the darkest night, the promise of God’s Faithfulness. In its sweetness, its great value, its perfection, the Word of the LORD proves the width, length, height, and depth of God’s abundant Love.
The people of God, then, are blessed to have His statues and know His desire for them to hear and obey all that He has declared. The LORD’s kindness is shown in both warning and instruction He gives by His Word. His commands are like the purest gold, the sweetest of honey presented to us to receive. What a gift that our God has provided the best for us, that He has made His Glory known by His Holy Word.
