“The teaching of Your word gives light, so even the simple can understand. I pant with expectation, longing for your commands. Come and show me Your mercy, as you do for all who love Your name.” Psalm 119:129-132
Not a day goes by that I don’t remember that I’m a simple person. Perhaps it is my small town roots, or growing up in a poor family. I don’t really know. But I continue to be thankful that God is gracious to reveal His Word to “even the simple,” as the verse above says. In His mercy, He loves us all.
I understand and receive His words best, however, when I’m longing to hear them. Waiting in deep expectation for them. Looking up, making Him the object of my focus and attention, deeply dependent upon His mercy and grace.
When I do so, thanksgiving follows. Then awe. Then worship. I shrink before the Almighty as I dwell on His attributes & character. And I can’t help but love His name. Today was one of those days I came panting, eager, attentive…ready to obey Him. And He spoke to me, filling me to the measure of His fullness. So grateful God loves simple, shrinking lil ole me.
This Truth is more simple than I’d often like to admit, but it’s such a treat when I grasp it. I experience the Lord most fully when I sit before Him eager and attentive, waiting in expectation for what He will show me. So why do I make it so complicated sometimes? Not even gonna think about that today or I’ll lose my focus. I encourage you to join me in doing the same.
