CQOD: 08/26/07 -- Carmichael: the special word

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 26, 2007
    Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me. I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.
    -- Psalms 119:97-99 (NIV)

    Have you noticed this? Whatever need or trouble you are in, there is always something to help you in your Bible, if only you go on reading till you come to the word God specially has for you. I have noticed this often. Sometimes the special word is in the portion you would naturally read, or in the Psalm for the day, ... but you must go on till you find it, for it is always somewhere. You will know it the moment you come to it, for it will rest your heart.
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), Edges of His Ways [1955]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Spirit speaks to me through Scripture.
