Thoughts on Psalm 1: Things A Blessed Man Does Regularly (part 4)

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” (Psalm 1:1-2)

Do you delight in the Word of God? In the text the word “law” refers to the first five books of Moses, also known as the Pentateuch. We are very fortunate to be living in a day and age where we have the complete revelation from God in the Bible. How much time do you spend with things that you delight in? Can you say that you spend as much time in the Word? A simple evaluation of time can determine what one truly delights in. We are so blessed to have God’s Word available to us through the Bible, but do we really delight in it? The question is not “do you believe the Bible?” The question is “do you delight in it?” It could be said that every Christian believes the Bible (basically, they couldn’t be one if they didn’t to begin with), but unfortunately not every Christian delights in the Bible. It is no wonder why this person is a blessed person in Psalm 1; He has a particular sentiment towards God’s Word: It is his delight.
