So, recently I have discovered the beauty of online Bible commentaries. To some that may sound extremely lame & dull. But they really aren’t! Especially to me…….I am majoring in BIBLE for Heaven’s sake! 🙂 Hahaha, anyway, I wanted to share a few ones that have meant a lot to me lately. I have been reading through the beginning of the Psalms this week in Pinelake’s L3 journal (formerly the Life Journal, but now more “streamlined” for lack of a better term.
The presence of God is the joy of his people, but any suspicion of his absence is distracting beyond measure. Let us, then, ever remember that the Lord is nigh [near] us. The refiner is never far from the mouth of the furnace when his gold is in the fire, and the Son of God is always walking in the midst of the flames when his holy children are cast into them….If we were carried in the arms of God over every stream, where would be the trial, and where the experience, which trouble is meant to teach us?
