Psalm 1:1-3 AMPC
1 Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and 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.
2 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

Walk in Delight

June 22, 2017

Psalm 1:1-2,6How blessed is the one who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 2 But their delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law they meditate day and night. … 6 the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Delight in the fear of the Lord!

Blessed is the one who delights in obedience to the Lord –Ps 112:1
Who uses His word as a lamp to their feet
And a light to their path. –
Ps 119:105

Trust in the Lord and do good –Ps 37:3
Bow before Him
With a humble, soft, pliable heart. –
Ps 37:4

Blessed is the one who surrenders and trusts Him 
They walk in tender hearted delight! 2Ki 22:19
.
John 8:12Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; the one who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

.


The Lord takes pleasure in those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy and loving-kindness. Psam 147:11

Word Study
.
From NetBible Ps 1:1-2

  • *  To “walk in the counsel of the wicked” means to allow their evil advice to impact and determine one’s behavior.
  • * “Path” here refers to the lifestyle of sinners. To “stand in the pathway of/with sinners” means to closely associate with them in their sinful behavior.
  • * The Hebrew word “scoffers” refers to arrogant individuals (Pro 21:24) who love conflict (Pro 22:10) and reject wisdom/correction (Pro 1:22; 9:7-8; 13:1; 15:12). To “sit in the assembly” of such people means to completely identify with them in their proud, sinful plans and behavior.
  • * The sequence “walk–stand–sit” envisions a progression from relatively casual association with the wicked to complete identification with them.
  • * delight in meditation in order to obey

Psalm 37:3-4 … Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

From NetBible Ps 37:4

  • Delight[06026] = to be soft{pliable}, be delicate, be dainty
  • Desires[04862] = request, petition, prayers

*Faith and obedience (v. 3) will bring divine blessing (v. 4).

2 Kings 22:18-19 … Tell the king of Judah, who sent you to enquire of the LORD, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says concerning the words you heard: Because your heart was tender, and you have humbled yourself before the Lord, when you heard what I spoke against this place . . . I also have heard you, says the Lord.

From NetBible 2Ki 22:19

  • Tender[07401] = to be soft, sensitive, responsive, penitent
  • Humbled[03665] = to be brought into subjection
    * two key references Lev 26:41 & 2 Chron 7:14 indicate that so long as a person, or nation, is arrogant or self sufficient, God can do nothing for them

Psalm 1:1-3 AMPC
1 Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and 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.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 AMPC
7 [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is.
8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit.

Psalm 92:13-15 AMPC
13 Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment].
15 [They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

Showers of Blessing

May 10, 2011

Ezekiel 34:26I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing. And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing.

In due season{if you don’t give up}  -Gal 6:9
Showers of blessing
Not a drip or a single drop but
Showers of blessing
Abundant rain for the sheep of My pasture
To yield fruit at the proper time.

Today be anointed with fresh oil
Your leaf always green, will not wither
Planted in the courts of the Lord
Declare His praise.

The LORD is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him!Ps 1:1-3;Ps 92:10-15;Ez 34:25-31

Today, all who are thirsty, COME
Open your leaves
Praise His name

It is good to give thanks to the LORD, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High. – Ps 92:1

Look up to receive His rain{reign}.

Word Study

From: NetBible Ezek 34:26
*“showers of blessing.” Abundant rain, which in turn produces fruit and crops (v. 27), is a covenantal blessing for obedience (Lev 26:4).
