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.
I know I am blessed because I am in Christ. I make sure I check the counsel I get is passed through the word of God to be sure that it is godly counsel. I try to check my actions and be certain I am not giving bad example to the ones who are coming after me. I am not a scorner, have never been a scorner and never plan to become one (Maybe because I was called a witch and a wizard at the age of 7) It helped me know that just because people say things sometimes, it does not mean it is true so I give everyone a chance.
But His delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
I love the word of God. Yes it set me free. Yes from time to time, I get light bulb moments that I live my life by. Yes I keep the word in my heart so that I don’t sin. But the reason I crave the word of God so much is because it is my ‘oxygen’, it is my life provider and preserver. I love the word of God and I live by it.
And he shall be like a tree planted by rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruits in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
This gives me joy because it lets me know that I prosper, I was created to prosper. I was not created to try to prosper. I was created to prosper. The word is my guarantee. I was not created to wither but to prosper, to increase, to multiply.
The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the winds drive away.
This helps me know that anyone who is godless is like chaff blown away so easily because they have no anchor, they have nothing to stay themselves or to hold onto. They don’t have the word of God, which is why I have to preach the gospel.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
This lets me know that there is a congregation of the righteous and I know that I am a part of them no matter what anyone says. It is up to me. I cannot be manipulated or discouraged. The best: I cannot be disadvantaged because I have the spirit of God inside me. I am blessed beyond a curse.
For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
The lord knows the righteous and Ephesians tells me that I am blessed beyond a curse and the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
(The above is psalm 1)
If i walk with this and i hit a stone, i just revert to 2 Cor 8: 9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be made rich.
I just know that God is taking care of me.
I also know that whatever happens God is with me.
