Reflect from childhood to now as an adult.

As a child your new toy captures your attention before you fall asleep and in awaken, it is the first thing you seek to look upon and take in your presence.

This will be a four-part exposition, and for today we will look at the word “meditate” in relation to the verse.

So should be the believer and the Word of God.
The initiation of such a mindset is found in a grateful heart and a content mindset. Thus we read in the preceding verse. Verse 14 - I have rejoiced in the way of Thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
As the old saying goes, count your blessings. Therein, may you find the time for the meditation of the Word of God and the delight thereof.
Next we will look at the word from the verse – the word “precepts.”
