Slowing Down

Today's reading: Psalm 119:89-96 (Lamedh)

Having been raised in a Christian family and being in and around church as long as I can remember, I'd say I know quite a bit about God. That being the case, sometimes I find that I skim over passages that are addressing something I am familiar with. Here's an example. On my first read through Psalm 119:89-96 I breezed through verses 89-91. It wasn't until I went back, slowed down and read these verses with intentionality that I tuned in to, and then proceeded to think about and process, the amazing information about God that's being revealed to us in these three verses (as well as in the remainder of this stanza).

How does reading a passage more than once, breaking verses down into shorter segments and generally slowing down as you read your Bible impact, not only what you learn, but also the quality of the time you spend with God? What did you notice, remember or discover about God from Psalm 119:89-96? Tami

God's eternal nature means that his Words are eternal, as well. Jesus pointed out this same fact.

God's word is firmly fixed in the heavens & exceedingly broad. That leaves me in awe of the power of God's word.
