Psalm 1 King James Version (KJV)
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Good Morning. Who is your counselor? Does the world have a major impact on our decision making or does the word of God. Here in our text we find that God is telling us to NOT walk or take advice from the ungodly, worldly people. We should never find ourselves fellowshipping and hanging out where sinners hang out, instead we should be a light for our Lord to them. We learned in past devotions that if we are a friend of the world we are an enemy of God!(James 4:4) In verse 1 we see that we should not keep company with scornful, contemptible , disrepectable people! In verse 2&3 we see the long lasting effects of meditating on God’s word its compared to a tree that is by a constant supply of water and we see that it flourishes. It bears it’s fruit every year and it does what a fruit tree should do and the leaves on that tree remain healthy and perfect never withering! Is this an analogy on how we will should live if we meditate, study and obey the words of Jesus? God bless, Terry Nov 19, 2019
