Time with God - August 26, 2015
(How blessed is the man who does not…) But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.
The second step in being a person whose whole life is being blessed by God is to fill your heart and mind with God’s Word!
Romans 12:2 tells us that we are “transformed by the renewing of our minds”. When God’s Word begins to saturate your life, it changes the way you think about life; it affects what is important to you; your life begins to change!
“His delight is in the law of the Lord”.Maybe you spend time in God’s Word but it is a burden, a chore that you perform because you know you should. What could change you so that time in the Scriptures becomes a delight?
God wants you to approach the Bible as His personal communication with you! Not simply as a place to find spiritual truths, or life principles, or moral standards, or theological teaching. But as a place to meet with God.
The Apostle Paul describes the Bible as “the sword of the Spirit”. It is the Spirit of God that inspired the Scriptures and He is the One who will speak to you through them.
Turn your daily quiet time into a meeting with God. Open your Bible expecting Him to speak to you personally and you’ll begin to delight in His Word.
