Focus on Study – Psalm 1
How do you navigate through life? Where do you go to find guidance through this corrupt world we live in? Where do you find wisdom and direction? Where do you go to find peace in the storm? We all have difficulties and trials we have to face every day. Each day is filled with decisions, some easy, others more difficult, some are critical. All can be life changing as they will set a direction for the future. Where you go for help with those decisions can make all the difference in the world to the outcome of those decisions. For clear guidance and truth, you must go to the Scriptures. God has given us His Word as our guide through life and life’s decisions. It is there we can find His will and His plan for our lives. It is there that we can distinguish between God’s values and the world’s values. It is there that we grow and strengthen our faith and relationship with Him. Failure to read and study His Word and to receive the Spiritual nourishment we need to grow our faith is equal to failing to eat food that provides the physical nourishment our bodies need to live. It is Spiritual starvation.
The psalmist puts it best, “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on His law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers.” Psalm 1:1-3
“Your commands are always with me and make me wiser than my enemies.” Psalm 119:98
“Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105
Get into His Word, study it’s truths, live a life filled with God’s wisdom and find peace in knowing His will for your life.
