Be Inspired By the Word of God

Be Inspired By the Word of God

In Jewish tradition, the Bible is often compared to water. Just as water promotes physical growth in the agricultural world, so too does studying the Bible promote spiritual growth and development.

The Land of Israel serves as the perfect backdrop for demonstrating the significance and necessity of water. Rain, especially in desert lands such as Israel, has the ability to transform desolate deserts into flourishing, lush land. Similarly, studying the Bible can fill voids in the hearts and souls of anyone who allows themselves to be inspired by the word of God.

Hashem made the expanse, and it separated the water which was below the expanse from the water which was above the expanse. And it was so. Genesis 1:7 (The Israel Bible™)

Lessons from Creation

On the fourth day of creation, God created the great luminaries of the sky. The sun and moon not only serve essential roles in the sustainability of the universe, but they can also teach important life lessons.

The sun is a constant source of light and energy. Everyday without fail, the same fiery ball appears in the sky above. The moon on the other hand, is characteristically very different. The moon is constantly changing and appears slightly different each time it rises throughout the month. At some points in the month, the moon is full, round, and luminous. At other points in the month, the moon appears as a tiny, silver crescent. Even when the moon seems to have completely disappeared, it renews and regrows itself once again. Even in times of trial and tribulation when the Jewish people are facing dire situations, they maintain their faith in God and are always renewed.

Hashem made the two great lights, the greater light to dominate the day and the lesser light to dominate the night, and the stars. Genesis 1:16 (The Israel Bible™)

Taking Shelter in the Lord

At various points in this chapter, King David refers to Hashem (God) as “my rock.” A rock represents both strength and protection, as rocks can protect travelers from the wind and rain.

It is interesting to note that the State of Israel’s Declaration of Independence invokes divine protection by use of the phrase, “placing our trust in the Rock of Israel.” Hashem’s help would indeed be necessary to establish an independent, free, democratic Jewish State in the Land of Israel that would be able to absorb Jews from around the world. Thankfully, the Rock of Israel continues to strengthen and protect the State of Israel.

O Hashem, the rock wherein I take shelter: My shield, my mighty champion, my fortress and refuge! My savior, You who rescue me from violence!  II Samuel 22:3 (The Israel Bible™)
