Psalm 1:2-3 says, the Blessed Man … “delights in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.”
Here we find a 3-step plan every Christian should hope to follow:
Step 1: You “taste” Bible study a few times and you find it is a delight . . . it nourishes you and satisfies you, and before you know it –
Step 2: You begin to meditate upon the Word, both day and night. And as it becomes even more pleasant, you begin wondering how you ever lived without doing Bible study before now! Then one day –
Step 3: You wake up and realize that you are indeed PLANTED in the very words of the Lord – and there is just no other place you’d rather be! The Bible has become a precious and rich soil that the roots of your life fully enjoy and depend on daily to sustain your life. The roots of your soul are deep and they spread wider as time passes and you become more and more familiar with all the glorious richness found in the Bible.
Yes, as promised in Psalm 1, you’ve become firmly planted. And now, your leaf does not wither – even in drought, when life’s troubles and trials are blowing hard all around you – for your roots have found the ever-present Spring of Living Water.
