For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
Psalm 1:6 (AMP) For meditation purposes:
For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly [those living outside God’s will] shall perish (end in ruin and come to nought).
Which person mentioned in this week’s verse would you rather be? While it seems like a silly question, the continued somberness of the Psalm begs for attention. We would be wise to devote time to it while considering the choices we make.
If you’ve memorized Psalm 1 or faithfully meditated on each verse, I’d like to reward you by sending you a Christian novel or non-fiction book (by well-known authors) that I have obtained from Doug Apple, Wave 94 general manager (he often receives free books from authors for interview purposes, etc.). To be eligible, you must be subscribed to the blog (via email). Once you are subscribed (or if you are an existing subscriber), then please leave a comment on this post letting me know what type of book you would like.
Now, where do we go from here? One thing for sure is that we will keep memorizing and/or meditating on God’s Word, one verse per week!
For a while, rather than memorizing a whole Psalm, we will focus on some of my favorite verses in Psalms. (What are some of yours?)
How are you doing?
- Did you memorize or meditate on every verse of Psalm 1? If so, be sure to let me know so I can send you your free Christian novel or non-fiction book.
- Has spending time on Psalm 1 helped you change some of your choices or priorities?
- What are your favorite verses in the book of Psalms? What makes them your favorite?
