Here we are friends, kicking off the Psalms reading I told ya about last week. I am not exactly sure how this will go but let us give it a whirl.
I read everything in the NIV translation, because it is the easiest for me to understand. My first bible was KJV and lets just say, me doth not liketh thou. ( KJV readers will get that joke). The exact version I have can be found On AMAZON.
Psalm 1 is a whopping 6 verses so this should take you no time to breeze through it. If you do not have a bible you can read this psalm in its entirety HERE.
My favorite verse is verse 2 that says “but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.”
I personally love this verse for two reasons. One being when it says “whose delight is in the law of the Lord”. I sometimes forget and need reminding that being a lover and follower of the Lord is not a chore, but a privilege. It makes me happy and delighted to read about the ways of the lord and what a gift it is that we have the opportunity to know it and have the chance to choose to follow it everyday!
The second reason I love this verse is when it says “who meditates on his law day and night”. This is so important to keep in mind when you walk through life. Day and night means all day everyday, not just when you wake up and not just when you are about to go to sleep. Conversations with God can happen non-stop, thanks to him can flow freely whenever the swell in your heart. Meditation or quiet time with God is so majorly important too. How can you hear His plans for you if you dont stop and listen! Feel free to take five or ten minutes whenever you can to just read your bible. You will be blown away by the things God will reveal to you, You just have to put your phone down, step away from Netflix and do it.
Looky there boys and girl we made it through the first verse. Give yourself a pat on the back. I will see ya back here for verse 2 shortly.
