Lord, it sometimes seems a far thing from words on a page to an intimate, dynamic relationship with you. In our minds, we look for the physical touch, the visual cues. But, between humans, these often belie a lack of relationship behind them.
In the Bible, you speak from your heart to ours, marvelous truths of yourself and us to minds perfectly created as receptacles of these reverent thoughts.
So keep us from being deceived when we ache for human sight and sensation. Remind us that the true and lasting relationship with you comes through your words of life to us, in Scripture, and our heartfelt expressions to you, in prayer.
So let us be always meditating on your word and sharing our hearts’ deepest thoughts and feelings with you. For in these do our knowledge of you consist.
