The blessed man is not under the law as a curse and condemnation, but he is in it and he delights to be in it as his rule of life.  He delights, moreover, to meditate in it, to read it by day and think upon it by night.  He takes a text and carries it with him all day long and, in the night watches, when sleep forsakes his eyelids, he muses upon the Word of God.  In the day of his prosperity, he sings psalms out of the Word of God and, in the night of affliction, he comforts himself with promises out of the same book.  The law of the Lord is the daily bread of the true believer.  And yet, in David’s day, how small was the volume of inspiration. . .How much more, then, should we praise the whole written Word of God. . . – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), commenting on Psalm 1 from the Treasury of David.
