OUR DELIGHT IS IN HIS WORD
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 (word) of the Lord, and in His law (word) he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:1,2
Most walk in the counsel of the ungodly every day, listening to doctors, lawyers, counselors and a multitude of lost people! The counsel we receive can be influenced by demons and the outcome can be devastating. Take for instance, the operating room where you are surrounded by unbelievers wearing masks with knives in their hands! Sound like something God-ordained?
The point of the psalm is this, we live in the midst of sinners, people controlled by the powers of darkness and a media blitz that daily swarms us with news, good, bad or fake! Our minds are polluted with the world and all it contains that can lead us to depression, discouragement and even suicide in some cases. The remedy is God's word, the divine counsel of the Creator of the entire universe, where no problem is too hard or un-solvable!
It is of the utmost importance for us to meditate on the word of God, appropriating the thousands of promises available to us, claiming the supernatural power of God into every circumstance happening in our lives and seeing the outcome of our faith! To fill our minds with truth and the comfort of the scripture will drive out all the ungodly influence of the world!
He shall be a tree planted by the river of water, (water of life) that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:3
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
