Psalm 1 :: Meditate in God’s law continually


How are the blessed? The blessed are the ones who meditate in the law of the Lord, day and night. In other words, the minds of the blessed is pondering over God’s expectation of them continually, lest they fail in any one of them and cause him displeasure (Exodus 20:13-14; 2 Samuel 11:27). How is it that those who continually meditate in the law of God are blessed? This is because, God keeps in perfect peace, all those whose minds are fixed on him (Isaiah 26:3)

Points to ponder:
Do you meditate in the law of the Lord, day and night (continually)? Do you have perfect peace? When our minds are fixed on Jesus and his words, then there is no room for anything else that can distract us and cause him displeasure.

Psalm 1:2 (KJV)
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 

Psalm 1 :: Delight in the law of the Lord


How are the blessed? The blessed are the ones who delight in the law of the Lord, for in keeping them there is great reward (Psalm 19:9-11). In other words, their source of joy is in fearing God and keeping his commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13), which is the whole duty of man. Their delight is in “THE LIGHT” of the world, Jesus Christ, who will reward everyone, according as their work shall be (Revelation 22:12).

Points to ponder:
Who (not what) is your source of joy? Do yo delight in the law of the LORD? Do you delight in “THE LIGHT” of the world, Jesus Christ? 

Psalm 1:2 (KJV)
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
