As we learned in Psalm 1, a godly person will spend much time reading and meditating in the Word of God. In this Psalm, David declares that he meets with God in a time of quiet worship each morning (verse 3). Perhaps our day would go ever so much better if we would but set aside time to read God’s Word and pray.
