“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.”

– Psalms 1:1,2

The Bible passage above from Psalms chapter 1 sends a thought-provoking message. It’s about the blessedness of those who avoid the influence of the ungodly, showcasing the importance of choosing wise company and staying away from negative influences. The “mockers” not only hurt people, but they also don’t acknowledge their own mistakes. They mock those who have made a difference and are improving themselves. The mocker’s life has gone from walking, to standing, to sitting and has completely shrunk. But there is hope, let me explain!

I recommend quiet time every morning. This was stressed to me while I was in my teens, via a Christian organization called Teen Mania. You start your day with the Lord and it only takes fifteen minutes. What do you do? You pray, write your to-do list, and then read your Bible. This Biblical principle of the importance of quiet time has not only been taught and practiced by many organizations in the religious sector, but the idea of morning meditation has also been practiced in the health and wellness sector and in the business world. It provides a way to maintain focus and a positive attitude, and move their endeavors forward!

Friend, don’t you think it’s amazing when the world discovers something that we have been doing for a very long time? The Bible teaches us that the Lord will hear our prayers in the morning. We don’t have to embrace the ways of the wicked. We can continue to trust God. As we read His Word and meditate on His goodness, we will feel His unconditional love!

Prayer


Father, I pray that you will help me to read and meditate on your Word every day.
