Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
Consistent results, fruitfulness in life, strength to endure… these are all attached to two simple choices (1) don’t listen to people who don’t speak godly truth, and (2) spend time, consistently in God’s Word; trust it, hang out in it, soak in it… let God’s Word be what you think about when it comes to family, business, relationships, finances, etc, etc.
Stop thinking that some guy with a book or some gal with a degree knows more than God does. Listen to His Word… and receive the full benefits of it!
