Today's devotion is based on Psalm1:2,3, "Blessed is the man (person) who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers."
As a faithful child of God, if you have your roots deeply anchored in the word of God and if you keep a close relationship with him by involving him in your daily life and decisions, you are like that healthy tree. God is the one who gives us the ability to have a loving relationship with: 'Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.'
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, thank you for making me a part of your flock. Feed me with your word every day so that I can be deeply rooted in you. You have the words of eternal life. Make me hungry and thirsty for them; make me want to soak them up like a strong tree planted by the stream. I want to know you more and more. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
