Saturday Psalm (1b)

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

We have been looking at this Psalm and at the characteristics of the blessed man.  We have seen what he does and does not do.  We have seen him being compared to a tree planted by the rivers of water.  He is strong, fruitful and blessed.  The last thing that this passage says about him is that “whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”  That is an amazing statement.  Whatever this man does is going to prosper.

Have you known people who seem to succeed at whatever they do?  Have you know anyone who just seems to have the “golden touch?”  Chances are, you might be seeing a “blessed man.”

If we want to be successful at whatever it is that we are doing, we need to have the blessing of the Lord.  We need to do the things that the Lord blesses.  We need to stay in His Word and love His Word.  We need to stay away from sin and wickedness.  If we will do what God tells us to do, we too can be like this blessed man and find ourselves prospering in whatever we are doing.
