Finding Delight in God's Word - Psalm 1:2

We build on yesterday's post from Psalm 1. The Psalmist, in verse 2, continues by instructing us that true happiness, the blessed life, is found by those who are really “INTO” God’s Word.
Blessed is the man whose.. delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law he meditates day and night. - Psalm 1:2
In other words, blessings pour out upon us when we have filled ourselves with God’s Word. True happiness is the result of finding pleasure in God’s Word. Day and night allowing God’s Word to fill our thoughts, penetrate our hearts, and consume our lives. Seeking guidance and strength from God’s Law rather than from the wisdom and follies of this lost world. The Follower of Christ has learned to make God's Word his delight. The Blessed person finds pleasure and life in God’s Word.

To some it is boring, but to you it is exciting.
To some it is dull, but to you it is delightful.
To some it is fantasy, but to you it is fact.
To some it is information, but to you it is inspiration.
To some it is optional, but to you it is necessary for life.

Amen brother! Keep up the good teaching about our Lord! I love how Jesus loves the sinner but hates the sin. HE loves us, but He hates wickedness and sin. He desires repentance from each person and that all men would come to Him. He desires that all men come to a knowledge of the Truth! God bless.

Hebrews 3:13
"But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness".
