But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:2
There is a great wisdom in the adage inscribed in many Bibles: This Book will keep you from the Devil or the Devil will keep you away from this book. Someone showed me that in his Bible even before I became a Christian. At the time, I thought it curious at best. I really didn’t know what it meant.
Now, twenty five years removed from that situation, I can say the adage is as fresh now as it was then. The main idea behind it and the idea of today’s verse is to saturate yourself with the Word of God.
Feed on it.
Snack on it.
Read it right before you rest your eyes at night.
Read it at the height of your day.
Get it into your system.
Meditate on it.
Quote it out loud.
Write it in letters.
Memorize entire chapters.
Repeat it over and over again.
Then, in heavy and burdensome times, God will bring those verses to the forefront of your mind. For your benefit so that He gets the Glory!
