Sheer Delight in God and His Word - Psalm One

Psalm 1, meditating on God's Word, delight in God
Psalm 1 tells us to delight in God and His Word...

Psalm One tells us the key to righteousness is a delight in God's Word.* 

Of course, delight in God's Word starts with a delight in God Himself--a deep desire to know Him with our whole being (Philippians 3:7-14).

Those who have this delight see Bible reading as an adventure, not a duty. They have Scripture verses on their mind day and night (v.2). They recite them throughout the day (Colossians 3:16).

When they're troubled, confused, offended, grieved, lonely, discouraged, or fearful, God's Word is their peace, comfort, and guide.

They're like trees continually nourished by living water (v.3), fulfilling God's purposes with perfect timing.

Sounds delightful, doesn't it?

The best part is this: If we don't have delight in God's Word, all we have to do is ask. God is eager to give it (Matthew 7:7-11). 

Please take a moment today and read Psalm 1.
*Psalm 1 speaks of delighting in God's Law. This is one of several words used in the Old Testament to describe God's Word.
