“I will meditate on Your precepts, and contemplate Your ways” (Ps 119:15).
To give deep thought of what God requires is necessary if we are to align ourselves with His will. It is not a casual or passing thought that captures the truths contained in His Word, but rather to savor those morsels of insight until they become a part of our nature. God allows us to meditate on His precepts for our good. They will not become grievous requirements when His ways are better understood. He does not require more of us than He Himself is willing or has already done for us. When we are able to compare His requirements to His ways, we will rejoice because of the opportunity He has afforded us to more fully participate with Him in His work. His precepts prepare us for further participation in what He is doing. How glorious it is when we fit perfectly into His divine plans. That is why His Word must be kept in our hearts that we would not sin against Him by omission or commission. We will know where He stands, and receive the power to stand with Him for righteousness and against all things that oppose Him.
