Could it be in these high-tech days of computers, internet and cell phones that many people will never have the joy of communication by love letters?
I remember the joy of receiving letters from my husband when we first got acquainted. We lived in different towns and, at times, different states. The expense of long distance phone calls prevented us from calling each other. The letters brought us closer in heart and mind. In the early days of my relationship with my husband, I learned about him from the words he spoke and the words he wrote. I could tell what things he considered important and about his desires for the future. Better yet, I learned about his character. Outside of being there in person, what better way to get acquainted with someone, than to hear or read his thoughts?
Have you ever considered why God inspired His Word, the Holy Bible? He wants men and women, boys and girls to know Him. If you have a Bible, are you making time to get acquainted with God by reading and studying it? If you don’t have the Holy Bible, can you see why you need one? God desires a relationship with you.
I have been learning what God is like from His Word. I particularly have grown in my knowledge of His character by memorizing Bible verses. For example, Exodus 33:14 says, “And He said, ‘My Presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.'” God accompanies mankind.
The psalmist, King David, said in Psalm 139:7-10, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your Presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.'” The One, true, holy God is everywhere.
Thank Him for His Presence with you and determine to get to know Him more through reading and studying His Word, the Bible.
