Psalms, Chapter 1 never ceases to amaze me in its simplicity, clarity and promise. I have read it thousands of times and each time it reminds me of the vital role of God's Word in my life.
It pulls me out of bed in the middle of the night. It makes me want to learn more and study faithfully. It drives me.
It delights my heart this morning once again and reminds me of what is most important in all of life…to listen to the Lord and meditate on His Word day and night!
The Contrasting PRACTICE
The worldly man...
But the Word man...
The Contrasting PROMISES
The Word man will be...
The worldly man who does not listen to God's Word but listens to foolish men will be…
When something becomes a great value to you (like the pearl of great price or the treasure hidden in the field) you are willing to do whatever is necessary to obtain it.
My prayer for you? That listening and responding to God and what He says would become your greatest value and that you would pay any price to pursue Him every day through His Word and prayer!

… with most of us modern Christians is that we are stoppable. A little discomfort, a turn from our desired daily routine, or a little resistance from those to whom we’re witnessing throws us off. We have not settled the issue that our greatest joy and highest purpose comes from our witness, and so we are unwilling to push through in sharing Christ with others every day, even in the mildest environments. Even when persecution is not present.

These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer (Acts 1:14)
Prayer is the foundation for all of life. Imagine the emotions and sense of fear and expectancy when Christ had been resurrected, appeared to His disciples, and then ascended. They were instructed to merely wait for the coming of the Holy Spirit who would endue them with power to be witnesses to Christ all across the world (Acts 1:8).
So, what did they do?
