live long and prosperBut his delight is 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. Psalm 1:2-3

Spock, the Vulcan friend of James T Kirk (Star Trek) is know for a phrase: ‘live long and prosper’! In this gateway to the psalms, David shows us how to live in a way that will cause our lives to thrive, succeed and flourish. It starts with associating with the right people (wise counsel). As I tune my heart and find joy in God’s Word and His commands, my life begins to change and its as if my life is supplied by a stream of water and things in my life start to blossom and spiritual fruit is born out.

With whom do I associate? How often do I meditate on God’s Word, His will, and His ways? Is it a delight to me?

God, Your ways are so much higher than my ways. To learn them and discover them and appreciate them has been such a blessing in my life. I feel as if You supply my life with so many good things. As this day marks the start of our 40-day fast together… I am looking forward to even a more intimate times of meditating on Your law. I am expecting great things as Your love and power are operating in me and through me.
