1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
1.This psalm challenges us to make a choice between the way of the
righteous and the way of the wicked. What are the differences between
these two in this psalm?
2.How is the person who delights in God’s word like the tree planted
by streams of water? What would my life look like if it were “bearing
fruit” in season?
3.Today, go outside and find a healthy-looking tree. Spend a few
moments look at the tree, its trunk, the leaves, the roots. Ask God
to guide me in a way that I will always be in blossom and bearing
fruits. Pray that my roots will go down deep and be rooted in the
healthy soil of God’s word.
Prayer & Journaling:
Stay with God for a little longer. Continue to converse with God and listen
to what he wants to tell me. Then write down any thought and/or prayer
in the 2012 “Spiritual Journal” book.
