First day into my word FOCUS and God speaks.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.
How will I know when my focus is NOT on the Lord? I will not be delighting or taking pleasure in His ways. When my focus is on God and His ways my speech will match. The uttering of my heart to others will be in sync with Gods word. Out of the heart the mouth speaks.
He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
When my delight is in God I shall be established by the word, bearing fruit in season and never thirsting or drying up.
Whatever I do will be fruitful. Even in the off seasons of my life. My speech will always be graceful and seasoned with salt because my heart is centered, concentrated and anchored in Christ.
Now to apply this...! To train my thoughts...take them captive unto the obedience of Christ so I will remain focused on Him.
I totally get these truths but to live them out is where the hard work comes in.
