Bible Reading: Psalms 1 Amp.
” BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who
walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their
advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and
inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and
rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
2 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His
law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he
habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.(A)
3And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the
streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its
leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall
prosper [and come to maturity].
4Not so the wicked [those disobedient and living without God are not
so]. But they are like the chaff [worthless, dead, without substance]
which the wind drives away.
5Therefore the wicked [those disobedient and living without God] shall
not stand [justified] in the judgment, nor [b]sinners in the
congregation of the righteous [those who are upright and in right
standing with God].
6 For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the
righteous, but the way of the ungodly [those living outside God’s
will] shall perish (end in ruin and come to nought).
God’s word illumines my surroundings so that I can see colors. I can
see visions and I can see whom I’m in God’s master plan.
God’s word colors my life!
Psalm 119:130 KJV The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth
understanding unto the simple.
NET Your instructions are a doorway through which light shines. They
give insight to the untrained.
BBE The opening of your words gives light; it gives good sense to the simple.
The retina contains two types of photoreceptors, rods and cones. The
rods are more numerous and are more sensitive than the cones but they
are not sensitive to color. The cones provide the eye’s color
sensitivity. At low light or night we do not see much color but at day
light the colors are vivid. The more light, the brighter the colors.
If God’s word is not unfolded to us everyday of our lives, our
surrounding light will be dim or low and we will not see colors. Our
direction is not clear, we are discouraged, we are not motivated, we
just go about the motions. But the more we are enlightened by God’s
word everyday, the more we see colors in our lives and the
surroundings. The yellow brick road can now be seen, we can now see
the beauty of God’s creation, we can see colors on the horizon, we are
encouraged, life becomes more enjoyable.
The word of God will not only gives you direction, but also guard
to your destination. Mind you, before you can enjoy the blessing of
the Word, you must obey what the Psalmist says in our Bible Reading
for today. He said:
But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law
(the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually
meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
God told Joshua that he can only be successful if he mediate and
obeying the Word. Joshua 1:8. Through Joshua was successful and
prospered in his reigned because he study the word, he mediated in the
word and he fully obeyed the word.
Bible commanded us to be the doer of the word not only reader.
