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
 but his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
Part of my resolutions for 2011 is to know God's word by heart. As I go through this year memorizing scripture, I pray that you will join me and we can begin a dialogue about hiding His word in our heart. As mothers and women, our job is to be the heart of our homes. What better way to demonstrate Godly character than by meditating on His word day and night!
As I meditate on the words of Psalms 1:1-2, it brings one thought provoking statement to mind. What drives the choices we make? We believe we make choices through a sound thought process. Its a script that incorporates our sense of right and wrong and what's best for us. In reality, its our worldview. Our world view is our past packaged and categorized by what has happened to us, the choices we've made, and the outcome of it all.
Your worldview shapes how you want life to be. Its part of the core of who we are and shapes our future, our choices, and our decisions. So here are some thought provoking questions about your worldview.
- Have you always been a christian?
- Are your choices shaped by your past?
- Is your worldview painted by life circumstances or events that 'happened' to you?
- Is your worldview painted by the outcome of careful decisions you've made?
Psalms 1 verse 2 is the key to this process. Meditating and on His word instills God's view instead our own worldview. Reading the Bible and memorizing His word is the foundation of a new heart and a new life. Meditating on His word means that not only are we reading His word, but we are allowing God to give us His point of view. We can then begin to operate under sound decisions that His law (the Bible) gives us.
Instead of calling your girlfriends to get advice about a choice this week, I challenge you to go to God first. Take this verse, write it on several note cards, then place these through out your house, workplace, and car. Memorize it. Then when a situation arises, allow God to speak to your heart through this scripture.
