Today is the first of a New Year. Many millions of Christians will include in their New Years resolutions a renewed commitment to reading the Bible. This is a good thing.
Many reading plans which encourage variety will include beginning the Psalms today. How good it is then that on this first day of the year so many Christians will read these great promises from God himself. If we will but meditate on The Truth we are assured God will change our nature so we will be a well-rooted tree able to be firmly established and in due course being forth fruit.
Blessed is the man 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.
