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)
What will my word do for you? How will my word counsel you? How will my word guide you? How will my word guard you? How will your heart be changed, and your mind transformed as you meditate on my word day and night? What will be different about you as you allow my word to dwell in you richly? I don’t know where to begin. I don’ know where to stop. What won’t your word do for me? As I meditate on your word day and night, I will come to know you. As I meet with you in your word, nothing about me will remain the same. The thoughts of my mind, the words of my mouth and the deeds of my life will be molded and shaped and guarded and guided by your word. My once unfruitful life will become like as you say, “a tree planted by a stream of water”. Instead of a life that is weary and worn out, and dry and unproductive, I will be fresh and alive, briming with life, ready and willing and able to bear abundant fruit for your kingdom and glory. Your word will make me new inside an out.. Your word will set a new course for my life. Your word will help me to resist temptation and stand against evil. No longer will I find myself in the wrong places, with the wrong people, in the wrong circumstances. Your word will make me able to shine brightly for you in the darkness of this world. Your word will make me able to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans. Your word will make me able to know and do your will. No longer will I wander from one fruitless endeavor to another. No longer will I wonder where you want me to go or what you want me to do. My life will have hope and meaning and purpose as I grab hold of your word and put it into practice. Yes, my word will do all these things for you. Will you meditate on my word day and night as you love and follow and serve me? Yes, I will. That will be very good.
Lord, I will meditate on your word day and night. Use your word to change my heart, transform my mind, and guide my life. Use your word to revive, refresh and restore my life. Use your word to make me able to bear abundant fruit for your kingdom and glory. Amen
