QUIET TIME

Psalms 1:2

 

But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

 

LESSON

 

This psalm contrasts the righteous person, who because of his or her behavior, experiences blessing in life, with the unrighteous whose ungodly conduct yields the fruit of sorrow and destruction.

Wicked” people willfully persist in evil, “sinners” miss the mark of God’s standards and do not care, and “scoffers” make light of God’s laws and ridicule what is sacred. The godly allows the Word of God to shape his conduct rather than the wicked.

In our world to day we hit the ground running from morning till night and often, we leave the Lord out of it. Martin Luther made a statement that confuses many today. He said something like so, “I have so much to do today I must spend four hours over my usual two”. We need to develop a quiet time of meditation on God’s word so we may become the disciples we are meant to be. I see far too many believers tired, joyless, and confused. I believe it is due to a lack of fellowship with God and His word.
