“I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.”
So often for Christians, our struggle with joy comes down to simply forgetting God’s promises in Christ. This verse reminds us of the importance of disciplining our minds to focus on the Lord. And it’s not simply during our time in the word and in prayer each morning. Meditating and considering is more long-term.
Take time to meditate and consider God’s word today. Psalm 119 is a great chapter of the bible on which to meditate. A verse as simple as this one should stir a remembrance of what Christ has done, what He is doing, and what He will do. Think about those things today throughout the day, and fix your hope on things eternal. This things of this world are fleeting, and will not last.
