Blessed is He Who Remains Focused

 

I look again at Psalm 1 and the more I study this psalm, the more and more revelation is given by the Holy Spirit.

Take a look at verse 1:

Psalm 1:1 

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.

Look at it in this way: Notice the slowing down of the individual talked about in verse 1. The psalmist talks about the man walking in the counsel of the ungodly, then standing in the way of sinners and he ends up sitting in the seat if the scornful. This verse can be symbolic of the person who becoming tired or weary in the things of God. As one moves from walking, to standing and then to sitting, it means one is becoming tired and ultimately resting, and when you rest you are not alert enough to see when the enemy is coming or to even strategize against the enemy.

The verse if therefore telling us that: Blessed is the man who does not backslide, lose focus nor get weary in the things of God.

Then the scripture goes on to say:

Psalm 1:2-3 

 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.

My interpretation: Blessed is the man who stays focused in the Word of the Lord, making sure to meditate on it day and night. Blessed is the man who does not allow the cares of the world to pull him away from God and cause him to be weary or go into a sitting position.

Remember the disobedient prophet in 1 Kings 13 who only disobeyed God but instead and proceeding along the path which God has told him to walk on, he did the opposite and also stopped to take a seat. This was indeed a powerful prophet who heard the voice of the Lord and spoke thus saith the Lord, but it was at the point when he took a sitting position that he was distracted and fooled by the old backslidden prophet; a situation which led to his death.

This man shall be like a tree planted by the riverside if he stays focused. In other words, this man shall walk in the prosperity of the Lord. This man shall walk with such an anointing that whatsoever he touches it will prosper. Whatsoever He does shall be done well and God shall direct it. Any other way shall cause one to perish.

If you are in a backslidden state today, God is calling you to simply run back to him. He is calling you to refocus your eyes on Him. Confess your sins and get back on true.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
