Down by the Riverside

Psalm 1 (NLT)

Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. But not the wicked! They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind. They will be condemned at the time of judgment. Sinners will have no place among the godly. For the Lord watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.

Habitually incorporating God’s counsel into your life allows them to become part of the daily decisions you make and causes things to turn out for good—for you, for your family, for those who come under the shade of your “tree,” and even for those “downstream” who are part of the coming generation.

God promises to take care of your ways and give you a fruitful life. But He also warns you that participating with those who do the opposite will lead to complete destruction.

Pray this way: Father, thank You for Your daily word to me. Today I determine in my heart to follow Your advice and reject the evil pathways that are continuously within reach. Guide me to always do your will, I ask. In the name of Jesus, Amen!

Have a blessed day!
