How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
I love this Psalm! That's why I quoted the whole thing! I love that I’m reading the Psalms now!
Do you want to be happy? (That’s what “blessed” means here.) First, the psalmist tells us what NOT to do… Don’t hang out with sinners. Don’t walk in the sinful path. We are bombarded with the thinking that doing what we want and living a sinful life will make us happy. That is so wrong!
What to do? Delight in the scripture! Think about it day and night!
He tells us the end of both ways. The wicked? They look so good now. But they are nothing. Chaff. In the end, they will perish. The righteous? That person will be fruitful and prosperous. The Lord knows the way of righteous! Ahhhhh! Happiness!
For me the choice is obvious! This is not complicated! I am delighting in the word today! And delighting in the Writer!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
