I’m tempted to conjure up something profound to say, so I can prove I have studied the Bible.
I’m tempted to bring forth eloquent imagery, so I can prove I am able to write.
I’m tempted to lay out an amazing story, so I can prove my life is interesting.
But this isn’t about me.
The Bible is about God. It is His story. Sometimes I need to let it be the thing that stops you in your tracks, instead of standing out in front of it, waving my arms, hoping you’ll notice me.
Listen to this description of what happens in the presence of God.
Loyal love and faithfulness meet; deliverance and peace greet each other with a kiss. Faithfulness grows from the ground, and deliverance looks down from the sky.
This beautiful picture stands on its own.
That was my reflection on Psalm 85. Link up with your reflection below. Or stop back next week with thoughts on Psalm 86.
