* Include God *

Blessed is the man ... who delights in the law of the Lord, and meditates on it day and night. * Psalms 1: 1-2, NIV *

You have a choice every day: include God in his life through prayer and the time you spend in his Word, or walk alone. The one ultimately brings peace, while the other brings anxiety.

However, note that you are not simply promised reassurance when you meditate on the Scriptures, but you are assured that he will be blessed.

This is because by meditating deeply on God's Word - analyzing it, considering it fully, and asking God to allow him to understand it, his thought pattern is transformed in the process. Father gives you unusual wisdom for your finances, personal relationships, and future. And when his mind is filled with the ways of God — with his goodness, will, provision, power, and principles, you have a steadfast peace and faith that no storm can destroy.

So make a decision today: Include the Lord in his life by meditating on his Word and seeking him in prayer.

Father, open your Word to me, filling me with passion for the Scriptures and your holy presence. I give you my life and I try to understand your will and your ways. Amen.

In his presence ... let him guide his life and teach you his ways,
