The Two Ways
How happy is the one who does not walk in the advice of the wicked or stand in the pathway with sinners or sit in the company of mockers! Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night. ∼Psalm 1:1-2
Notice where David’s delight comes from. Of all the things this world has to offer, of all the things that say they will provide “delight,” David tells us what provides us delight, and that is God’s word. He doesn’t follow the wicked’s advice, the sinner’s pathway, or the company of mockers; instead he searches out the way God would have him go. And one way he applies that is by memorizing Scripture. Meditating is just having those verses readily available in our minds, so we can recall them when we want to. It’s also what the Holy Spirit will speak to us during the day, or in times of trouble or temptation.
What are some things you think about throughout the day?
Pray and ask God to help you follow and find delight in His word.
