Welcome to a Psalm a day 2020 and today we start from Psalms one. Blessed, happy, fortunate, prosperous and enviable is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly, not following their advice, their plans and their purposes. Nor stands submissive and inactive in the path where sinners walk. Nor sits down to relax and rest where the scornful and the mockers gather.
But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord. And on his law, the presence, the instructions, the teachings of God, he habitually meditates, ponders and studies by day and by night. And he shall be like a tree firmly planted and tended by the streams of the water, ready to bring forth it’s fruit in it’s season. It’s leaf also shall not fade or wither and everything he does shall prosper and come to maturity. Not so that wicked, those disobedient and living without God are not so, but they are like the chaff.
Waterless, dead without substance, which the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked, those disobedient and living without God shall not stand justified in the judgment. Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous, those who are upright and in right standing with God. For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous. But the way of the ungodly, those living outside God’s will shall perish and [inaudible 00:01:53] and come to nothing.
My listener today may the Lord God help us to walk in his ways and do his will for his glory. Amen. Father in Jesus name, thank you for your word today. We declare in the name of Jesus that we are blessed. We will not walk in step with the wicked. We will not stand in the ways that sinners stand. We will not sit in the company of mockers.
We declare today that our delight is in the law of the Lord. We declare today that we shall meditate on your law day and night. And we declare in the name of Jesus that we shall be like the tree that is planted by the streams of the waters. We shall yield foods in and out of season. We declare that we shall ever be green. We shall not wither.
And whatever we do, we will prosper. We declare in the name of Jesus for you have sanctified us and cleansed us Lord. And our steps are ordered by you. Now, we are not going to be like the wicked. We shall not be like the chaff that the wind blows away. We shall not be like the weak and stand in in judgment. We shall not be like the sinner standing in the assembly of the righteous.
For we declare, Lord, you are watching over our ways in the name of Jesus. And for that destruction shall not come near us in the name of Jesus Christ for the glory, honor and praise of your name. In Jesus’ name, amen, amen. May the Lord God bless you today as you start your day. May you walk blessed and highly favored because you are the righteous of the Lord. You are the blessing of the Lord. This is Pastor Lucy Paynter from Glorious Power Church with a Psalm a day, 2020. Amen.
