Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction. I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me. Psalm 119:92-93
I got the idea for this WFW post from a blog post I just read yesterday. I have this VOM magazine and the cover picture touched me as well. Look at her hands and look at the Bible they are holding. This lady has no doubt undergone some type of persecution and her Bible has been burned, as you can see. But the persecutors have not destroyed God's Word nor have they incinerated this woman's love for it. Indeed, no doubt the spark of affection that the child of God has for His precious Word only is inflamed and burns all the brighter under the face of affliction.
As the psalmist says, the precepts of our Lord do quicken. That means they "keep us alive." Amen and amen.
