- Last time we were together, we talked through part of Psalm 1.
- This time, we’ll wrap of this wonderful word that reminds us why we should follow the Lord.
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.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all (Psalm 34:19).
The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace (Exodus 14:14).
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).
I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth (Psalm 34:1).
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth (Psalm 121:1-2).
If we walk in the ungodly’s counsel, it will walk us outside the Word of God. @blencouragesuTweet
BCU Fam, this Psalm tells makes it plain that there are only two roads–righteous or ungodly. Moreover, the Lord also plainly tells us what happens in either case, so we can decide which path we’d like to take. Since the ungodly’s road ends in regret, ruin and the lake of fire, I’m sticking with road Jesus is on. Sure, it’s not a popular, or well-traveled–and sometimes there is rough terrain, but the it’s the perfect path from Earth to Heaven. Are you with me?
