Blue Print Of A Blessed Life - part two

Here is part two of a three part series on a Blessed life from Travis Baker.

I. Studies – vs2 “his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
II Tim.2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God”
“study” – diligent
What you enjoy that is what you think about and pursue
What you enjoy is what feeds your soul
One of the reasons I believe we are starving spiritually is because we are feeding ourselves on worldly things that are temporal and expecting that to satisfy an spiritual hunger for God’s word.
The man that studies feeds his soul.
Look at what he is studying; he is studying
Right Message – “the Law of the Lord”
the Bible washes us, cleanses us, purifies us, sanctifies us, and conforms us.
Right Method – “Meditates”
Ps 119:11 “thy word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against the Lord.”
He makes it a constant practice to walk by God’s word
Right Manner - “day and night”
If we want to be favored by God then we must feed ourselves upon his word.
The way we treat our bible is the way we treat Christ, because the bible is his word.
Abraham was not only favored by God, but he was also feed by God.
Through his journey across vast deserts and wilderness plains God sustained all his needs.
Blessed is the man that is
