Delight in The Word of God
Blessed is the one...whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
God wants us to delight in His ways and to think about His Word over and over in order to understand it fully.
The more we study, think about, and talk about God’s Word, the more we will benefit from it. People who give God’s Word a place of importance in their lives will be like trees planted by a stream of water, trees that never stop yielding good fruit, no matter how things are going in their life (Psalm 1:3). They will be steadfast and steady.
God’s Word is food for our spirit, and it keeps us strong. It enables us to go through difficulties yet continue walking in love and doing what we should be doing.
It is important for us to not allow our circumstances to rule our behavior.
We should always be guided by the Holy Spirit. Psalm 1 teaches us that this type of person will prosper in whatever they do.
But the wicked are like chaff that blows away in the storms of life (vv. 3–4). They have no strength to stand firm when they are inconvenienced or suffering.
Father, I want to be a strong, spiritually mature Christian who brings glory and honor to Your name through my behavior. Help me stay strong in Your Word and keep You first in my life.
