I’m continuing my mini series on Psalm 1…I hope it blesses you! ????
“Blessed is the man WHO walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, NOR stands in the path of sinners, NOR sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the l.a.w. of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.” (the Bible, Psalm 1:1-2)”
Meditating on His Word… day and night? Isn’t that a bit tedious? Not at all! ???? These verses say that the psalmist finds his delight in the law of the Lord. In other words, it does his soul good and brings him joy, a feeling of satisfaction. He even says that he finds pleasures forevermore at God’s right hand! (see the Bible, Psalm 16:11)
So, what is meditating on the Word?
It’s going over it, and then going back over it, within your heart. It’s a bit like chewing gum (relatively speaking). In the beginning, it may be a bit tough to chew, but in time, it becomes easier and easier. And then you start to enjoy it!
We read, think, and pray about a verse over and over again, “chewing on it” for several hours, days, or weeks perhaps. Then, all of a sudden, it illuminates a specific situation in our lives! It’s the Word of God coming alive; it’s God’s “rhema.” It’s what Psalm 119:130 says: “The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to thesimple.”
His Word is alive, and it is extraordinary. (see the Bible, Hebrews 4:12)
Let’s thank God together for His incredible Word! “Lord, thank You for Your Word, Your Word that brings me. joy, Your Word that leads me. I want to meditate on it every day, every moment. I. don’t want to miss the treasures You have for me. in the Bible! I pray that it transforms me. and accomplishes its work in me. so that every day, I become more and more like You! In Jesus’s name, amen!”
