Psalm 61 places in poetical form all that we know to be true about Jesus Christ and the gospel.

Because we trust God, we have already decided to trust his word—all of it—no matter what.

As the words of God remain or abide in us, the Spirit of God transforms our heart and mind to reflect and refract the heart and mind of Christ.

Your word, Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. (Psalm 119:89)

We are pruned, which is to say transformed, by the substance of the Word of God; not our own self-willed, take-charge efforts.

This sword-like Word, like a surgical instrument, heals as it pierces, penetrates, and cuts out even the most malignant cancerous growths of sin and death in our inner being.

Are these words locked into the quiet-time compartments of our morning devotions or are we finding ways to loose them into the life-flow of the hours and minutes of our days and nights?

We see things from a very narrow perspective, whereas God sees things from the vast eternity of his unfolding purposes.

Only when we do God's Word can it become a blessing to others for their good and a witness to others of God's glory.

The great miracle is that the Bible, despite all of its variety and complexity, reveals a single, unifying, underlying, and overarching story.

Memorization quick-loads our short term memory. Re-memberization is of another order. It slow-loads our long term memory.

Meditation, in the biblical vision, means to fill one's consciousness with the Word of God; to relish and even devour it with deep delight.

There is no sweeter sound in any language than the audible sound of the spoken Word of God.

The Word of God must shift from a duty we perform to a desire in which we delight.

When it comes to the revealed Word of God, there is always more understanding to be grasped.

The notion of sacred space and secular space is an absurdity to the Bible. No place is too sacred and no place too profane to warrant the witness of the Word of God. 

The Word of God is perfect, trustworthy, right, radiant, pure, and firm. It refreshes, makes wise, grants joy, gives light, endures forever and brings righteousness.

God has revealed his thoughts and ways, his mind and heart, his intentions, purposes and will to us through his revealed Word.
