“…it is not because the Word of God has pages missing…”

prayingpsalmsFrom Eugene H. Peterson’s Praying With the Psalms:

Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. ~ Psalm 119:18

When we find ourselves deficient in wisdom, it is not because the Word of God has pages missing, but because we have not seen all there is on the pages we already have. It is not another book we need, but better attention to the book we have; it is not more knowledge we require, but better vision to see what has already been revealed in Jesus Christ.

PRAYER: Father, as I read your counsels and commandments in scripture, grant that I may not be drowsy or inattentive in my reading, but really see what is there with open, observant eyes, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
