“What kind of person does God call blessed? One not swayed by ungodly men but whose influence comes from meditating on God’s Word day and night. How does God describe that person? ‘Like a tree planted by streams of water,’ continually nourished, never thirsty. This person yields fruit in season, according to God’s timing. Because his mind and heart delight in God’s Word, his actions are God-centered and divinely prosperous.”
“We must do whatever it takes to keep God foremost in our lives. A healthy combination includes reading God’s Word, listening to it, studying, teaching, meditating and thinking about it, and memorizing God’s Word.”
“Realize the spiritual warfare dimension. The enemy of your soul hates the truth and will do anything to keep you out of it. He will throw obstacles in your way, accuse you of pride or self-righteousness, and overwhelm you with the task ahead. He will attempt to discourage you and defeat you. Keep going. Keep God’s Word on your lips and in your heart.”
