Philippians 2:16 - Get A Good Grip On Gods Word.
Philippians 2:16 (NLT) Hold firmly to the
word of life.
God has promised many wonderful benefits
in your life if you will meditate on the Word
of God and then apply its truths to your life.
How do you meditate? If you know how to
worry, you already know how to meditate. Worry is
when you take a negative thought and think on it
over and over and over. On the other hand, when
you take a passage of Scripture and think on it
over and over and over, thats meditation.
If all you do is hear the Word of God
when you go to church, youll have a weak grip
on the Word of God, and it easily can be pulled
out of your mind.
Psalm 119:16 says, Your laws make me
happy. I never forget your word (GW). Do you
want to be happy? Following Gods principles
will produce happiness, and you remember those
principles by memorizing them, meditating on them, and
then applying them.
In addition, Psalm 119:35 says, Make
me walk along the path of your commands, for
that is where my happiness is found (NLT).
Usually were looking for happiness in all the
wrong places. God says happiness is found in the
path of his commands. [Daily Devotional by Rick
