The Promises of God’s Written Word

Deuteronomy 30:14: The Nearby Word

God’s Word isn’t beyond our reach or difficult to obtain (Deuteronomy 30:11). Rather it is nearby, already in our minds and hearts and mouths. If we regularly read and meditate on God’s Word, it lingers nearby so we can obey it. If we don’t know what to do, it guides us. When we embark on the wrong path, it corrects us. In whatever ways we sin, it convicts us. If we’re downhearted, it comforts us. Like the God we love, the Word is our trustworthy friend.
