Psalm 1:1 AMPC “BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.” God always has the desire to bless His people but they have responsibilities to meet the qualifying conditions. 1. Do not follow the advice, plan or purpose of the ungodly. Let God lead you by His counsel, leading you to a glorious destiny 2. Be mindful of your stand, position, attitude, views and opinions. Opinions must not be patterned after the manner of sinners. 3. Never feel at home with people who don’t respect God. Bad company corrupts good character (1Cor15:33) 4. Love, delight in and desire God’s word: His rules, instruction and teachings. Habitually meditate, ponder and study it day and night. Such a lifestyle will experience profitable results. Father, teach me Your ways and guide me. Shalom! Have a blessed day!
