16 Then those who feared the LORD spoke often with one another; and the LORD listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the LORD and who meditate upon his name.2 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Blessed are they who hear the word of God and obey. Getting quiet is preparation. Think on the name of Jesus while seeking after the Lord."]
12 But to all as have received him, those who believe in His name, He has given the right to become sons of God,7 [When you receive the Light and Word in your heart as Jesus speaking to you and revealing the things of God to you, you have received Him and identified Him as Jesus. From the Word of the Lord within: "When you are sure that he who is speaking to you is Christ, you have received Him. You are a son when Jesus appears in your heart to guide you."]
10 Who among you fears the LORD? Who obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light, trust in the name of the LORD, and stay [his mind] upon his God. [All men start in darkness. Light comes by listening to the Lord and obeying his voice in faith. There is an excellent, detailed writing, Christians should often think on the Name of the LORD, by Steven Crisp available on this site for your reading.]
|Isaiah 26:3 |
3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
