Psalms 1:1-2: “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. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
To meditate comes from the hebrew word hagah which means to ponder. To simply think about something. Not necessarily seating cross-legged while humming. The one who puts God’s word in mind and in use to drive his or her decisions always prospers. That is why the psalmist calls him blessed.
If you look around you, you will most likely note You are usually the average of the three to five friends you spend your most time with. Your character, behavior and life is more often than not, the same due to the influence that you’ve had over each other. Show me your closest friends and I will show you who you are.
The people you walk with is crucial. They influence and shape your thoughts and your thoughts shape your reality. Remember, you are the average of your three to five closest friends. So how much more would your life turn out if you walked in the counsel of the trinity?
Psalms 1:3-4: “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. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.”
Once you start engaging with the word, they drive your thoughts and you begin to walk in a life full of light.
John 1:4: “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”
John 6:63: “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
God’s words are not just mere words. They are spirit and they are life. They have the ability to transform! And whenever you engage in his counsel, that is the word, your faith also dramatically increases.
The faith of the ungodly wavers as they are not rooted in the word. The ungodly have no capacity to stand and whatever they do will fall in due time. It doesn’t matter after how long, but they will fall eventually. They are like chaff. Doubt always lingers in their mind and whatever they do will either not see the light of day, or will not last. They are unstable.
James 1:6-8: “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
Psalms 1:5 “Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”
Keep your mind on the word. Use it to drive your decisions and be amazed. Thoughts shape reality. Meditate your way to a path full of life and light!
