Daily Word. Psalm 1:2 It is all about the em-pha-sis

Today we do a little exercise in meditation. Here is how it goes: 

Repeat the verse or phrase with emphasis on a different word each time.

E.g., John 2:5:

  • Whatever He says to you, do it.
  • Whatever He says to you, do it.
  • Whatever He says to you, do it.
  • Whatever He says to you, do it.
  • Whatever He says to you, do it.
  • Whatever He says to you, do it.

Rewrite the verse or phrase in your own words.

Look for applications of this text–what should you do in response to it?

Pray through the text with the help of these 3 basic questions: 

  • What does this tell me about God or Christ that should lead me to praise?
  • What does this tell me about my fallen condition that I need to confess?
  • What does this tell me about how I should live, rejoice, trust, or change? How would my life be different if this passage was vibrantly real in my life?
