I opened up BibleWorks 8 this morning to be greeted with the Bagster’s Daily Light for the day. This is a resource I am very interested in because it hits me with just a bit of Hebrew and Greek every morning and evening, which is something that is good for the soul. I’ll give a more thorough review of this feature when I get a chance to write something more in-depth. However, I thought this morning’s Daily light was a very helpful collection of a few texts from the Hebrew Bible on the thoughts of YHWH. The three Old Testament texts are as follows:
How great are your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep! (Psa 92:5 NRS)
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
(Isa 55:8-9 NRS)
You have multiplied, O LORD my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you. Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be counted. (Psa 40:5 NRS)
The idea that God’s thoughts are deep and not like ours is very good counsel to take just before reading scripture.
