Meditate and Respect- Psalm 119:15
Meditate – According to Webster’s Dictionary 1828 – To dwell on anything in thought; to contemplate; to study; to turn or revolve any subject in the mind; appropriately but not exclusively used of pious contemplation, or a consideration of the great truths of religion.
And Respect – To regard; to have regard to in design or purpose.
Psalms 119:15 says I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
How many empty promises have I made to the Lord that I would spend so much time in His word studying and meditating? My spirit is willing, but my flesh is so weak. Nevertheless, it is expedient that I dwell daily on the Word of God. I need to ponder His Words, study them, and think of them over and over so that they become part of my very being.
What is most important to me?
Do I value the things of this world more? Or do I fix my eyes on the Lord and his Word, reflecting on His ways?
Am I regarding His Ways as the design and purpose He has for my life?
