Psalm 1, 2019

I know the joy of not following the advice of unbelievers,

refusing to spend a lot of time with those who do not honor God,

and not being part of a group which has no respect for God.

I delight in God’s Word.  When I am focused on my relationship with God, I am like a tree planted along the riverbank, fed each day by the Living Water.  Jesus grows fruit in my life as he gives me love, joy and strength.

This is not true of those who rebel against God.  Their lives are scattered by the wind – they will be judged and condemned by God.  Unbelievers will be forever separated from the One they refuse to believe in.

Each day, God watches over all of his children,

but the path of those who don’t have faith in Jesus leads to destruction.

Amen, Abba Father.
