1 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.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 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.
Psalm 1: 1-3 is loaded with such great revelation about your Christian life. God wants you to have the right associations in this season because prosperity is around the corner waiting for you. Just get in alignment.
Here is a brief analysis of what is being said in this scripture:
This scripture obviously indicates that unblessed is the man who walks in the counsel of the ungodly, who stands in the way of sinners and you sit in the seat of the scornful.
There are so many of us who know the Lord but somehow we are still caught up with the wrong people. We continue to seek the counsel of those who have refused to turn over their lives fully or at all to Christ.
You have given your life to Christ, yet still you are entertaining your sinful friends. You say nothing when they joke about the godly things. You say nothing when they utter the ungodly, but yet you have given your life to Christ. Not to mention the scornful with which you still fellowship. You still call them and find them as a source of entertainment. These are the ones who scorn the godly and the things of God. They also treat you with scorn because you have given your life to Christ and have chosen a different way. It’s time to remove yourself from such company!
It is time to let go of all associations with such people, because the word clearly states that when you keep such company you WILL NOT PROSPER. It is only the godly that flees all associations with these kinds of people who are well known for pulling you back down into the lifestyle from which you had been delivered on the day you gave your life to Christ. These are the ones hindering you from being successful. Time to turn your back and walk away from such persons.
You may be new to Christianity but God wants you to know that His desire for you is to bless you and see you successful.
You are called to be like a tree by the riverside. That means that you are called to flourish. Anything next to a river can never die. As the roots of the tree goes down, they will find their way towards the water and will continue to drink. Animals are never thirsty when a river is around. The ungodly suck us dry and God does not want this for you.
Find yourself next to the riverside instead of next to the ungodly because God has a great purpose to work out in you and it will call for you to fixed next to his river.
Sit beside the still waters so that your soul can be filled with all of Him. Sit beside the still waters of the river and allow your roots to go down. That’s where daily meditation on the word of God as mentioned in verse 2 comes in.
As you meditate on the word of God day and night, you allow the roots of your body, spirit and your soul to find the river of living water, which is Jesus. You allow your roots to drink from the river of living water and as you are nourished with the living water of God, you become automatically filled with the ability to be successful and whatever you touch as mentioned in verse 3, will prosper.
Walk next to the river, stand next to river, sit next to the river and receive the prosperity that God has for you. Anything that sits beside a river will be green and green = prosperity.
