When he established the heavens, I was there;
when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,
when he made firm the skies above,
when he established the fountains of the deep,
when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command,
when he marked out the foundations of the earth, then I was beside him, like a master workman, and I was daily his delight,
rejoicing before him always,
rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the children of man.
The swirling sea, assigned its limit by the wisdom of God, does not transgress His command. How much more should this be true of those of us who are His delight?
Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.
