Psalm 1:2, But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

Thought For Today

Choices, decisions, and change require extra thought. We think, we ponder, and we even obsess over big decisions. Shopping for a car, looking for a new job, pursuing new friendships, and looking for new clothes can temporarily fill our mind so full, it’s as if we are obsessed with the process of deciding.

What is happening to us? We are merely experiencing the impact of “meditating.” God gave us a powerful mind, and He knows the transforming effect meditation has on us.

He told us to “meditate on the word” day and night. What if we did? But, here’s the problem and I think a key reason we don’t do well meditating on the word. We over-complicate it. Why not take a key verse or a few key verses on a topic you are interested in and meditate on those verses each morning and night for a week? Write them on a note card, save them on your phone, or find some way to review them morning and night. Ponder their meaning, pray for God to reveal their deeper truths and pass along to a friend what you are learning.

Experience the power of Psalm 1:2 by meditating on His word day and night.
