Who is the blessed person?
What is this person like?
In contrast, what are the wicked like?
The focus of our delight and meditations lead us to bear fruit.
As you reflect on this, pray in these ways and any other way the Holy Spirit leads.
For our delights and our mind’s repeated meditations to be on God’s word.
For honest confession of delights that are not of God.
For other delights to decrease and our delight in God to increase.
For trust that God will provide fruit from our choosing to delight in his Word.
The Tree of Life
1 What delight comes to the one who follows God’s ways!
He won’t walk in step with the wicked,
nor share the sinner’s way,
nor be found sitting in the scorner’s seat.
2 His passion is to remain true to the Word of “I AM,”
meditating day and night on the true revelation of light.
3 He will be standing firm like a flourishing tree
Planted by God’s design,
deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss,
bearing fruit in every season of life.
He is never dry, never fainting,
ever blessed, ever prosperous.
4 But how different are the wicked.
They are like chaff blown away by the wind.
65 The wicked will not endure the day of judgment,
for God will not defend them.
Nothing they do will succeed or endure for long,
for they have no part with those who walk in truth.
6 But how different it is for the righteous!
The Lord embraces their paths as they move forward
while the way of the wicked leads only to doom.
