Psalms of My Life (Psalm1)

08 Dec

Years ago Joe Bailey wrote a book called Psalms of My LifeScreen Shot 2014-12-08 at 5.06.50 AMI’m going through the book of Psalms with a friend and would like to share some of the encouragement I’m receiving from looking at this portion of God’s Word.

Psalm 1 is one of my favorites.  There we read —

Psalm 1

Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wickedScreen Shot 2014-12-07 at 8.02.42 AM
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

    Having great pleasure or joy in obedience to God’s word, will enable us to be strong and fruitful in the things of God. As a result we will experience the manifestations of God’s blessings.

      I could not agree with you more, Eileen. May I ask how you heard about my blog? Thanks. Larry
