“But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in His law doth he meditate day and night,” (Psalm 1:2)
In what or whom do you delight? In what or whom do you find pleasure? What’s your absolute favorite thing to do? What’s your favorite activity? I enjoy reading, cruising, and listening to music. However, my absolute favorite thing to do is study the Word of God. I get so tickled when God begins to speak to me through His Word and shows me myself. I delight in the law of the Lord, His word, even when it’s bringing correction, conviction, or instruction.
The law of the Lord brings those things, but it also brings comfort, peace, joy, counsel, and guidance. The Lord spoke to me through the Word when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After I heard from all the specialists, I needed to get alone with Him to listen to what He had to say on the matter. The Lord comforted me through the Word and reassured me that I would be ok.
Can I honestly say that I meditate in it day and night? No, I can’t say that, but I can say that I meditate on it most days of the week. I have to. I need it. God desires that we delight in Him and His word. His Word seems restrictive to some people, almost suffocating. However, to Believers, His Word is freeing. It brings a smile to our faces.
What about you? Do you delight in His law? Do you meditate in it? If you do, praise the Lord! If you don’t, let me encourage you that there’s pleasure in His law. The more you meditate in it, the closer you draw to Him. It becomes as essential as the air we breathe. Open your bible and study with me. You won’t regret it.
