Psalm One tells how you can be blessed in life. Three things that you should NOT do are listed (vs. 1). You should not walk, stand, or sit in the way (advice) of sinners. There are two other things you SHOULD do (vs.2). “But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” You should love God’s Word and meditate on it.
What do you love? What do you delight in? What do you think about? When I was a little boy, I delighted in finding turtles after hard rains. I would hunt them, play with them, and then turn them loose. As a teenager, I delighted in working on my first car. I enjoyed thinking about and working on old cars. When I became a father, I delighted in sailing on our small sailboat with our four children and their dog “JJ.” Thinking about sailing still makes me smile. That was my delight!
Psalm One tells that you should delight in or love God’s Holy Word, the Bible. Your first step is to love God’s Word. Your second step is to meditate on God’s Word day and night. Biblical meditation means that you actively think on verses, stories, and principles found in the Bible. It does not mean that you sit quietly with your mind empty. It means that you prayerfully think of how God’s Word guides you to make right decisions. What is your delight?
So… if you want a happy, blessed life, always delight in God and His Word! Read and memorize God’s Word so you can meditate on Bible principles any time and all the time – RC. These are two ways that you can be blessed!
