Do you ever get the spiritual blahs? You wake up and know you need to
feed on the Word of God but just can’t figure out where to turn in it?
Today’s attached devotional will give you a great solution. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Psalm 1:1-6 (ESV)
1 Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
“If the Scripture is a spiritual rosary or garden, as St. Chrysostom said, the book of Psalms is a knot in this garden set with fragrant flowers. Luther called the Psalms a little Bible. The Psalms make sweeter music than ever David’s harp did. They are calculated for every Christian’s condition, and may serve either for illumination or consolation.” [Thomas Watson, The Mischief of Sin, ((Morgan, PA: Soli Deo Gloria Publications, 1671), p. 1]
