GODLY DELIGHT! – Psalm 1:1-2 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Psalm 1:1-2 – Devotional

Psalm 1:1-2

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.

Delight is a delightful word. I can’t believe I wrote that! Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it: a strong feeling of happiness: great pleasure or satisfaction. That is the same definition David intended when he penned the words of this Psalm.

What brings delight into your life? What are the things that pleasure you? If we are honest with ourselves I think most of us would have to confess that it is the earthly things that pleasure us; things we can touch taste or feel.

If you will read today’s Scripture once again, you’ll see that David emphasizes that we are to delight in the law of the Lord. By that he implies in the Word of God. In taking delight in the Word of God, a person needs to meditate on it day and night.

I have observed that meditate comes from the root word that pictures a cow chewing the cud. Swallowing and then bringing up into the mind once again until it becomes a part of us. Where do you find your delight?

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
