God's Blessing

| | Comments (4)

Psalm 1

There's no waffling in Psalm 1. Following God's Word brings blessing from God--period. God isn't looking at our background, our education or our financial status. He simply wants us to follow Him.

"But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night" (vs. 2).

How much time do you spend delighting in the Lord and taking in His Word? What do you do to keep God's Word at the forefront as you go through your day? Tami

Amidst the business of each day, I often look for any period of down-time (when things slow down) - I call it a little "spiritual oasis" in which I can refresh my soul. It might be additional Bible reading, a short devotional or spiritual article, or just time in prayer; whatever way the Lord leads; it's always a blessing to lift up our hearts to Him!

The more I study the Word and get to know the Savior, the more I'm convinced that making the arbitrary measure of time spent a high-up thought in terms of our communion with a timeless God is almost antithetical.

That's not to say that we shouldn't spend ample time with Him. However, the measure of the impact and importance of our time with God isn't the length of the time, but the depth of our communion with Him during that time. Time can all too easily become a preoccupying factor for us in this regard, and can serve to actually detract from our periods of specific and focused communion with God.

With that in mind, I've learned that 1) as believers, as we draw closer to God, we'll find that, in big and small ways, we're in constant communion with God throughout any given day, and 2) as we grow in Him, we'll find that our periods of focused communion with Him will become such a delight to us that thoughts of time spent or passed will continually decrease. We'll "lose track of time," for lack of a better term, and find that our communion with Him is fulfilling and refreshing, rather than a task to check off our list.

Very good point Brian. We went over Ps. 1 last night at our men's group and discussed verse 3."They are like trees growing beside a stream,producing fruit in season and always have leaves.Those people succeed in everything they do." I sometimes fret over the amount of time spent instead of the quality of time.Thanks to all for the reminder

The word of GOD should be the daily special to our soul. I try to start my day with the word of GOD and as i go throughout the day i ask for HIS help me to apply his word to my every move.
