A Special Time Every Day… “Coffee With the Lord!”

Each day I spend time reading, reflecting on, and applying God’s word to my life… It is a special time, a treasured time, a “centering time,” a spiritually nourishing and a life-transforming time!  I call it “Coffee with the Lord.” 

Today in my Bible reading I began reading the longest chapter in the Bible – Psalm 119!  I would describe it as a many faceted gem, celebrating and honoring God’s word. 

In the first section of the Psalm – verses 1-8, two words… two themes stood out to me: 

BLESSING!  “Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the LORD! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart!” (vss. 1-2)  Oh, let me tell you, I want that blessing!  I want to live that way! 

FOCUSED!  “You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently. Oh that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statutes! Then I shall not be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.”  The blessing comes when I focus on what God’s word says and teaches – with a resolve to obey it!  I don’t simply want to read God’s word, or just know God’s word – I want to live by it, obey it, and order my life by it!  The result?  Incredible blessing! 

Two words – two keys to a blessed life!
