Delight Yourself in the Lord: In His Word

“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.” (Psalm 1:2 Amplified Bible)

The Bible is a treasure chest full of golden nuggets of wisdom, a hymnal of praise, worship and adoration songs, a book of parables, healings and teachings. It is a book of love and hate, war and peace, romance and anger. God gave us:

• The story of Creation
• Recounting of the Israelites journey
• The Leaders/Judges
• The story of King David
• The beautiful Psalms
• The wise Proverbs of Solomon
• The story of Esther
• The trials of Job
• The love story between Christ and His church – Song of Solomon
• The Prophets
• The story of Jesus, found in the four Gospels
• The visitation of the Holy Spirit
• Paul’s letters to the churches
• The letters of Peter, John and Jude
• The book of Revelation that reveals Jesus to the world in the final days

These are only a few of the treasures found in God’s Word!

The only way we can know His story and His teachings is to study His word. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. (John 1:1-2)

Almighty Father, thank you for your Word. I thank you for the lessons you teach us through your Word. May my mind always be open to receive what I read, my heart always be ready to believe and my hands and feet ready to carry out the instructions in your Word. I love you, Abba Father. Amen.
