THE PSALM 1


Reading through Psalm 1 recently made me know that it was a scripture worth reading by every man if they truly want to love the God kind of life that will ensure they prosper in every way. Psalm 1 gives a template for any man that wants to live God's way to follow and it assures every one that will take those words to heart and do them, all round prosperity. Psalm 1 gives us the attributes of a righteous man and how he lives. A blessed man does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, he does not stand in the way of sinners nor does he sit in the seat of the scornful. A blessed man's delight is in the law of the Lord and he meditates in it day and night. The reward for doing this is that he will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water , bringing forth his fruits in his season, his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he does prospers. 
Wow.. don't you want to be that kind of man, living for God and doing right? In contrast, the ungodly man is not so and hence there is judgement. While God blesses the righteous man, the ungodly man ends up perishing. God keeps the legacy of the righteous and blessed man but the unrighteous faces judgement and his life ends badly. Let us meditate on psalm one in a new light and see a version of such a man in Joshua in the bible who chose to serve God with his household as seen in Joshua 24:14-15.
May your confession be Joshua 1:8 . May God's words never depart from your mouth as you remain the Psalm 1:1-3 man.
