Meditates Day And Night

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – God’s Word – Psalm 1:1-3- Meditates Day And Night – Growing As Disciples

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. Psalm 1:1-3 (NIV)

A Blessed Life

Do you want to live a blessed life? Do you want to live a life that is new and fresh and alive? Do you want your life to bear an abundance of fruit? Do you want to be able to prosper in the work that I have given you to do for me? Those are not hard questions. I do want to live a blessed life that is new and fresh and alive. I do want to bear and abundance of fruit. I do want to prosper in the work you have given me to do for you. What must I do if I want all of these things? That is a very good question.

You must do two things if you want my blessing on your life. First, you must leave your old life. How will I leave my old life? You must separate yourself from all that is evil. You must remove yourself from people, places and things that will hinder your walk with me. You must eliminate from your life all that would try to feed and sustain evil in you. I’m not sure what you mean. Don’t go where wickedness would try to guide you. Don’t listen to what evil would try to counsel you. Don’t walk along with what evil is thinking, saying and doing. Don’t take your stand or sit down with those who find pleasure in doing what is not pleasing to me. Now I understand, I get it. You said I must do two things. Yes, I did.

As you leave your old life behind you must embrace and take hold of your new life that you have in me. How will I do that? You will follow me. You will listen carefully to all that I have to say to you. You will meditate on my word day and night. You will no longer think, speak and act like you once did. You will no longer live as you once did. At one time you were weary and worn out. You were dry and exhausted. You were without hope in the world. Yes, I was. Now, my word will feed and strengthen you. You will be like a tree that has been planted by a stream of water. My word will revive and refresh your life. At one time you were barren and unproductive. No kidding. Now you will bear an abundance of fruit for my kingdom. Now you will bring glory to my name. That’s what I want. I want to live out my new life that I have in you. That will be very good.

Lord, instead of walking, standing, or sitting in the wrong places with the wrong people – hearing, doing or saying the wrong things, I will meditate on your word day and night. Guide all I hear, do, or say by your word so that I will bear fruit for your kingdom. Amen

Let Us Worship And Bow Down

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Promises - Day 305 - Psalm 95:6-8 - Worship And Bow Down - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Promises – Day 305 – Psalm 95:6-8 – Let Us Worship And Bow Down – Growing As Disciples

Come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the LORD our maker,  for he is our God. We are the people he watches over, the flock under his care. If only you would listen to his voice today!  The LORD says, “Don’t harden your hearts as Israel did at Meribah, as they did at Massah in the wilderness. Psalm 95:6-8 (NLT)

Bow Down And Worship

Will you bow down and worship me? Will you kneel before me? Yes, I will bow down and worship you. Why will you bow down and worship me? Do I need a reason to bow down and worship you? I don’t ask that question with any disrespect. What is on your mind? What are you thinking? Without coming up with reasons, I know that it is the desire of my heart to bow down and worship you. You created me to have this desire in me. I want to bow down to worship you. Those all sound like reasons why you want to bow down to worship me. I suppose that is true, yes, they are reasons to want to bow down to worship you. Can you also come up with additional reasons why you want to bow down and worship me? Yes, I can come up with many reasons to bow down and worship you. Let me hear them. You love and care for me. You are my Good Shepherd. You sought me out when I wandered away from you. You brought me to yourself. You healed my bruised and battered and broken life. You have revived and refreshed and restored me.  I have been and am now like a sheep that is under your care. You are my Savior. You came into this world to live and die for me. You turned my life around. You made it so I can be forgiven of my sin and cleansed of my unrighteousness. You made it so I could be righteous in your sight. You filled me with your Spirit. You pulled me out of darkness and have allowed me to walk in the light with you. You have been guarding and guiding me through life. You rescued me from a life without you both now and forever. You have a place secured for me in heaven. For all these reasons, with a heart full of joy and gladness and thanksgiving I will bow down and worship you. That is very good. Do you have any other ideas? Do you have anything more to say? I will bow down and worship you because you are my Lord. I am at your disposal. I am ready for your use. I will go where you guide me. I will do what you ask of me. My life is in your hands. For that I am grateful. For that I am thankful. For that I am filled with unending joy. That is very good. Yes, it is. Thank you, Lord.

Lord, you are my maker. You created me with the desire to bow down and worship you. You are my Savior and Lord. It is my joy to submit myself to your leadership over my life. With a glad heart, I will love and follow and serve you all the days of my life. Amen
