Psalms 1

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 his law doth he meditate day and night.

3. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of the 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 judgement, nor sinner in the congregation of the righteous.

6. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
I love this Psalm. It is simple and to the point. If you want to be blessed, don't take advice from those who don't know the Lord, and make sure that you meditate on the Word of the Lord day and night. I love how this relates to Proverbs 23:7 which says "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he".
If we meditate on the Word we will be like a tree planted by the water, bringing forth fruit in due season; the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22).
Wherefore by their fruits, ye shall know them (Matthew 7:20)
If we want others to know that we know the Lord, we must bear fruit that testifies of Him. Please post your thoughts of what this Psalm means to you. For more postings on this Psalm, visit butterflykisses21 .

  1. Thank you for taking part in Psalms Sunday today. Your post reminded me of something my pastor said in church today. He said...where you are in the Word is usually where You Are!
