|Day and Night (from WPClipart)|
TO CHEW ON: "But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night" - Psalm 1:2
"…meditates day and night." That would be continually. Why would we think about God and the revelation of Him in His word ("law of the Lord") so much?
- Growth and fruitfulness:
In another place Paul advises Christians to: "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and in everything give thanks" (1 Thessalonians 5:17)—more ways to help growth and productivity.
Continuous connection with God happens in other places in the Bible too, where it serves other purposes:
When studying creation, the writer praises God as creator: "I will sing to the Lord as long as I live…" Psalm 104:33.
David, at the outset of his psalm about God's attributes and His activity in history begins: "I will extol You my God, O King; And I will bless Your name forever and ever." Psalm 145:1
- He is worthy:
Whatever place we're in today is a good one to meditate often and long on God and His activity, will, capabilities, accomplishments, and worthiness. Let's do it for our spiritual growth, to gain realistic perspective of life, to SOS Him when we're in trouble, and because He's worthy of it!
PRAYER: Dear God, help me to turn my thoughts to You continually, day and night. Amen.
