1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the [a]ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he [b]meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the [c]rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
This psalm is among the group of psalms that speak about the human condition and what God does in and through us when we cry out to Him. It isn't every day that you might get to read a psalm but rest assured that this one will speak to your human condition, your need for God, what God does for those who are faithful to Him, and much more.
Don't we serve a great God?
I can't tell you how many times in my life, when all the chips were down that God came through for me and helped me. There was one time when I thought that I would be evicted from my apartment, and I found myself praying all night because everything was out of my control.
Have you ever felt like that? Like everything was out of your control? Well, I sure did. But, as many human ordeals go, God came through for me in high fashion.
A huge snowstorm came and stopped the eviction. I was later able to acquire the funds needed to pay rent and remain in my apartment.
But, had it not been for God I would have been down and out but God came through for me and He will for you as you put your trust in Him.
Our prayer for you is that as you read these Chapters that the Lord will speak to your heart and give you the reassurance and hope that you need to keep on pressing through, not looking at how the wicked may seemingly prosper, until God brings you to the place He promised you.
