Saturday Psalm (1a)

I would like to start something a little different – on Saturdays, instead of a normal post, we will look at a Psalm, or just a few verses of a Psalm.  I hope that it will be a blessing and an encouragement to you.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.  For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 1:1-6

This week, we will look again at the first Psalm and the characteristics of the “blessed man.”  The Bible says here that “he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season…”  The blessed man is going to be like a well-watered and fruitful tree.

Over the last two summers, we have had a bit of a drought in my area of the country.  Many of the trees look dry and withered during the heat of the summer.  Some fruit trees have died or not produced much fruit.  But it is different along the river.  The trees along the river are still lush and green.  They are still producing fruit.  They still have a source of water.

It is the same with the blessed man. The blessed man produces fruit while others are withering under the heat of the world.  The blessed man has a source of blessing that will never dry up and never go away.  The blessed man is just blessed!  Let us be one of those blessed men today and every day!
