O how love I thy law!

Jeremy wrestled with the machine before him. He would figure out how to make this engine work if it was the last thing he did! (Which, based on his progress so far, looked very likely.) How could something so simple be so complicated?

“Still puzzled over it?” The voice came from his older brother Andy.

Jeremy nodded. “Puzzled as ever. This is just such a difficult mess. I do wish someone would write about the particular problem I’m facing here. It seems everything I can find deals with other aspects of engines.”

Andy pulled a book off the worktable and blue the dust off it. “What’s this?” he asked.

“That’s the instruction manual Dad wrote,” Jeremy replied.

“Are you reading it?”

Jeremy cringed. Truth to tell, he had been reading it, but he’d basically read it out of duty rather than really expecting it to help. “Sort of,” he replied.

“Didn’t Dad design the engine…and write the manual for those working it?” Andy asked.

“Ummm…yes,” Jeremy replied sheepishly. Why did Andy have to ask such tough questions?

“I see,” Andy commented. “Well, maybe it would have some answers.” With that word of advice, Andy left the room.

Jeremy pulled back out his manual. Here he’d been complaining rather than seeing what his dad had to say. Although his particular problem didn’t seem to be addressed in the index, Jeremy remembered his dad telling him that the manual contained all he would need to know–and all would include guidance for this glitch.

Over the next several days, Jeremy poured over the manual. In doing so, he learned much about his father’s heart and plan for the engine. He began to see the problem he faced in a whole new perspective. As he gazed upon his father’s incredible design and the care with which he did everything, he began to change. And slowly but surely, he began to understand clearly what steps to take. What a precious gift his father had given him in that manual!

“O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.” Psalm 119:97-99
