“Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.”
Before sin entered into the world, God made us in His image. We were fashioned from dust after His likeness, as He breathed life into Adam.
“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
He created us for His glory, and redeemed us so that He could fellowship with us through His Word.
“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee…Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.”
Our Creator even gives us the desire to understand more of His Word. Just as He breathed life into us, He divinely breathed His Word into this world so that His creation could be complete in Him.
2 Timothy 3:16
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must seek to understand our Creator’s Word.
