The Bible’s Supreme Place

“Great peace have they which love Thy Law: and nothing shall offend them” (Psalm
119:165).

Yes, a true love for the great Book will bring us great peace from the great God and be a
great protection to us. Let us live constantly in the society of the law of the LORD, and it
will breed in our hearts a restfulness such as nothing else can. The Holy Spirit acts as a
Comforter through the Word and sheds abroad those benign influences which calm the
tempests of the soul.
Nothing is a stumbling block to the man who has the Word of God dwelling in him
richly. He takes up his daily cross, and it becomes a delight. For the fiery trial he is
prepared and counts it not strange, so as to be utterly cast down by it. He is neither
stumbled by prosperity — as so many are — nor crushed by adversity — as others have
been — for he lives beyond the changing circumstances of external life. When his LORD
puts before him some great mystery of the faith which makes others cry, “This is an hard
saying; who can hear it?” the believer accepts it without question; for his intellectual
difficulties are overcome by his reverent awe of the law of the LORD, which is to him the
supreme authority to which he joyfully bows. LORD, work in us this love, this peace, this
rest, this day.

by C. H. Spurgeon
