Book 1 – Psalm 12 of 41: Jesus, the Word of the Father

Genesis 1, Psalm 12 and John 1 have in common the Word, His Light, shining into the darkest of times. The godly one is gone; the faithful have vanished from among the children of man. The word of men, their lies, their flattering lips, their double heart taking precedence over the poor and the needy. Yet, from the LORD’s seeming silence in the previous chapters, He arises and places the meek in the safety for which he longs.

How is this victory achieved? By His words conquering the words of this generation. Such are His words, like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times. He is the Word who breaks into the darkness of the vile lies and boastful words of men. Do we claim His Word as ours? Do we speak His words? Do we trust that His words have the power and authority to completely wipe out the darkness of our age?
