Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. Psalm 1:1-2.
DELIGHT! A beautiful word of affirmation, honor, and love. The word that denotes a state of mind centered not on earthly things or worldly affairs, but on the Lord our God!
The Law of the Lord feeds our souls and helps us live ready to see what is — through His Eyes. The Law of the Lord feeds, guides, and shapes our lives to live, love, and forgive.
The Word of God is not a quick scan, a once through, but ‘chewing on’ each thought and what it teaches. During our meal, it is said we should chew soft food five to ten times. However, dense meats and vegetables, we are to chew up to thirty times. Fruits, vegetables, and meat give us earthly life. Chewing on the Law of the Lord – The Word of God – gives us a forever spiritual life!
What is your delight? What constantly guides and leads you? What legacy do you leave each day to your children and those who come after? Delight yourself in the Law of the Lord God!!! Every word counts!
For the Lord watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction. Psalm 1:6
