“Blessed is the one ………. whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.” Psalm 1:1-2.
I adjusted verse 1 and 2 for my own purpose.
I need to be filled with God.
I have been collecting “unceasing” things for the believer. I am to pray without ceasing. I am to be mindful of Him without ceasing. Today I add meditate without ceasing.
That doesn’t leave much time for anything else!
That’s the idea. I need to be in a state of total commitment to God.
When I get distant from Him, my life is impacted.
I lost my glasses last night. Couldn’t find them then and haven’t found them today. Now I’m three hours away from where I was yesterday. It has been difficult to concentrate on God during this time. What this brings out to me is that my attachment is situational. I am so easily disconnected from Him.
I want to be the one who reacts in a Godly way no matter what happens. There is a time to mourn. There is a time to rejoice. But at all times I must be mindful of Him.
Today’s verses remind me that God’s Word needs to be in my head so that His Words come to my mind in all seasons. I currently read until I find something to meditate on. Then the next day I move on to some other place. I wonder if I should be more deliberate with what I meditate on. Take two days or more instead of one? Something to consider.
Conclusion: His Words must become my words.
