Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – The Mind – Psalm 1:1-3 – Meditates Day And Night – Growing As Disciples

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. Psalm 1:1-3 (NIV) 

A Blessed Life

Do you want to live a life that is blessed by me? Yes, I want to live a life that is blessed by you. What must I do if I want to live a life that is blessed by you? You tell me. How can I tell you? Your answer is right here in my word.

If I want to live a life that is blessed by you I won’t walk in the counsel of the wicked. What does that mean to you? I won’t pay attention to advice from wicked people. I won’t listen to their counsel. I won’t accept their thoughts, opinions and values. I won’t allow my mind to be conformed to their way of thinking. I won’t walk in the way that they walk. I won’t follow them on their path in life. I won’t walk to where they are going. Their purposes, plans and schemes will mean nothing to me. Instead, I will walk with you. That’s good. What else?

If I want to live a life that is blessed by you I won’t stand in the way of sinners. What does that mean to you? I won’t hang around with sinners. I won’t live in the way that they live. I won’t adopt their ways as my own. I will not do what sinners do. I will not live a life that is disobedient to you. I won’t rely on myself. I won’t allow myself to be self-reliant and self-sufficient. I won’t elevate myself to be my own god. I will live humbly before you. Instead, I will stand with you. That’s good. What else?

If I want to live a life that is blessed by you I won’t sit in the seat of mockers? What does that mean to you? I will not mock what is holy.  I will honor what you honor. I will value what you value. I will want what you want. I will bow down to worship you. I will acknowledge you in all that I think, say and do. In every way I will live to please you. My seat will be far away from those who mock you. Instead, I will take my seat with you. That’s good. What else?

If I want to live a life that is blessed by you it will not be enough to not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of mockers. No, it will not. I will also meditate on your word day and night. Your word will be my counselor. Your word will be guide. Your word will be my teacher. Your word will bless my life. Your word will make me able to live my life with and for you. Your word will cause me to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. That is what I want. That is what I will do. That will be very good.

Lord, show me the people, places, things and activities that you want me to separate myself from. Help me to meditate on your word day and night. Bless and refresh my life with your word. Use your word to cause my life to bear fruit for your kingdom and glory. Amen
