Psalm One

Psa 1:1  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. 
Psa 1:2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 
Psa 1:3  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. 
Psa 1:4  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 
Psa 1:5  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 
Psa 1:6  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. 

We need to be careful where we walk, our manner of life, for we are to walk in the Spirit of God and not the counsel of the ungodly. Ungodly counsel comes from the thinking of the world, we are to have the mind of Christ.

1Co 2:14  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 
1Co 2:15  But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 
1Co 2:16  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 

We are not to stand in the way of sinners;  We are not to stand with those who speak evil, who condone evil, who organize to do evil. We must stand for Christ, the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6) We are not to sit continuously with the scornful , the arrogant, the boastful mockers; we hear too much of this. Get up and leave.

Delight yourself in the LORD! Meditate on His Word, day and night and be planted as a tree by the Living Waters. Fear not the evil of this world. Immerse yourself in the presence of the Lord; be blessed and a blessing. Our roots are planted in the kingdom of God. We abide in the Branch and receive our life by being connected to Christ Jesus the vine as living branches bearing fruit. Abide with Him and then we shall flourish and avoid foolish talk.

Joh 15:4  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 
Joh 15:5  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 
Joh 15:6  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 
Joh 15:7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 

We abide in our Lord Jesus Christ and need only ask him for his wisdom and he will guide us. Lord help me to put off all the contamination of the world, my negative thoughts and to depend upon you for all I do and say, all in the name of Jesus. Thank you for loving the unlovable.
