Pastor's Pen 9.24.2023

"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,  nor stands in the path of sinners,  nor sits in the seat of the scornful,  but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season,  whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatever he does shall prosper."
       Psalm 1:1-3

There are three things that will hinder and deny God's blessing in our lives. There is one thing that will guarantee it...

Beware of: 1)Heeding the advice of the ungodly and allowing it to guide you.   2)Standing or aligning yourself with those who reject or refuse the ways of the Lord. 
3)Taking the viewpoint of the scornful and seeing things from a negative perspective rather than through a Biblical worldview. 

Instead,  build your life upon the Rock, Who died for our sins and rose from the grave, making our relationship with God possible! Then, blessing and fruitfulness will be a reality and we'll be a witness to His grace.

Planted by rivers of water...nourished and flourishing; unshakable and unmovible; abounding and astounding; bringing good fruit in the right season! 

Searching the wonders in the Psalms, 
Pastor Rick Meyers
