“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night” (Psalm 1:2).

The blessed life of faith cannot be accomplished apart from the teachings of God’s word. While the idea of “law” conjures up for many the negative of legalism, torah (law), in this context, has the basic sense of “instruction.” Where scripture isn’t the authoritative touchstone in all matters of faith and practice, we are then left to the ever-changing positions and “facts” of competing voices and authorities, missing completely the delight of the blessedness found in the single-minded pursuit of knowing and living God’s instructive word.
