“Blessed is the man who walks not on the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat ofbthe scornful. But delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law he meditates day and night.” Psalms1:1, 2
It is my interpretation and what I feel is given to me so please if you have a different opinion blog back.
Believers should not recieve counsel from everyone, it isnt wise to hear from everyone. When we go through different eventsof life it is important to have the right people speaking into our lives.The wrong counsel can stop your growth entirely. When you accept ungodly counselor advice you slow your development, or worse. Listen, if you give a plant the wrong food it will die, im sure there are lots of plant foods on the market, but the planter knows what food is best for their plants. I think his is true of god he jnows what we need for our spiritual growth as well.
In the passage above i think David was laying out the blueprint for us on how to be blessed: Do not get counsel from the ungodly, do not stand in the path of sinners, do not sit in the seat of the scornful; delight yourself in the law of the lord, meditate on the law of god day and night.
Its important because we need to know what the word of God says about our situation.The word of God has answers to all situations. When is the last time you found an all inclusive do it yourself book?
When I meditate on Gods word he speaks to my spirit, the same as when I hear encouraging words from Godly counsel.
This gives me strength and endurance to continue the christian journey.
The ugly side, counsel of the ungodly will cause you to give up your marriage, forget your loved ones etc.. This is the dangernof standing in the path of sinners and sitting in the seat of the scornful.if you arent careful ungodly counsel will cause you to miss your blessing. So we are evangelising and are commisioned to witneas to sinners of gods grace and lead them to repentance, we have no reason to be around them outside of that mission. If we want to be blessed we have to do it Gods way.Barefoot= Sendme7
