Hopefully, you have all had a great week. And here we are in another brand new one! Once again, the opportunity to start over, setting aside past mistakes and bringing forth an attitude adjustment that reminds you that you are a child of the King! A chosen one! The question is, how are you going to handle that.
Today, I choose to count my blessings, to meditate on the word of God and to try a little harder every day to take care of all He has blessed me with. That is really easy to say, but a little harder to carry out. We are all bombarded with distractions, both good and bad, throughout every day. But if we choose to try harder, then each day will be a little easier. The distractions won’t amount to as much as they did.
Do you meditate on the law of the Lord day and night? I hope to get better and better at that. Choose that one scripture that really has an effect on you. When you are going three directions at one time, ponder on that scripture until you feel peace. Only then can you feel the pure delight of being His child.
In His light,
The Daniel Plan
They delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. —Psalm 1:2 NLT
The psalmist speaks of the person who is blessed, fortunate, and happy. He meditates on God’s Word day and night. To meditate is to think deeply about something, to go over and over it so that it sinks into the heart and influences the way we think, feel, and act.
Repetition helps us create habits and can transform us. Just as repeatedly eating the right foods or consistently exercising changes our bodies over time, so repeating a passage of Scripture and consistently thinking about it will gradually change the way we think. And changing the way we think will change the way we live.
Choose a verse that ministers to your soul, perhaps a promise you want to trust in. Turn it over and over in your mind. What are the implications if it is? Let it sink into your heart.
Food for Thought: If you can make space to meditate daily on a short portion of God’s Word, you will change your mindset and your heart over time.
