Prospering In Righteousness,

Psalm 1: 1 & 2

” Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked 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…. They are like trees planted along the river bank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither and they prosper in all they do.” Psalm 1: 1 – 3

To take delight in God’s righteousness is to be blessed indeed. We must allow God’s precepts and commandments to dominate our lives day and night, so much so, that they shape our character into Christ likeness, bringing life to it’s fullest measure and abundance. To successfully strive to reach this “height” of Christian maturity our “roots” must go deep with Him into His Word in order to secure that our “life foundation” is stable; planted firmly and grounded solidly in Him, allowing the nutrients of His living water to consistently refresh our soul. A steady supply of His refreshment, nourishing the soul day and night, through the wilderness, the deserts, the loneliness and the darkness, as well as the good times will insure that we won’t give up when the going gets tough, but rather continue to gain strength so that our spiritual growth and richness will be evidenced by spiritual fruit. I love the promise given in Verse 6 “The Lord watches over the way of the righteous.”

What a picture of the blessed, meditating on God’s Word! Yes, Blessed is the man who delights in the law of the Lord
