SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/16- “Most Highly Favored Are You!” (Psalms 1:1-2)
Premise Question: How many people truly follow the divine wisdom, the absolute great advice and Godly counsel, of this particularly wonderful psalm, which includes such a delightful promise, packed full of joyous benefits?
“Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night.” (Psalms 1:1-2 NLT)
Most highly favored, by The LORD GOD Almighty, are those who deliberately, and with great diligence, choose to not follow the ways, example and counsel of the rebelliously wicked, by walking and following after them in lock step, or being found to be standing with those who stand for nothing but lawlessness and unrighteousness—nor do they sit down to share a fellowship meal with those who have nothing good to say about anyone else, and are always being critical, ridiculing, divisive, judgmental and mocking everyone in a derisive way. But when they choose to take great pleasure in looking into, being fully engaged and enjoying the commandments and revelations of The LORD, as they make it their daily practice to continually spend time reflecting, in deep thoughtful contemplation, throughout each and every moment of all the days of their life, they are blest and filled beyond measure, with The joys of The LORD GOD Almighty. (Psalms 1:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Only The LORD Himself is truly aware of how many of His children have followed this life-giving, wonderful advice and wise spiritual counsel contained in this psalm. But, from what I have observed and experienced from afar, as well as, up close and personal, over the course of my own life, I’ve seen two very different outcomes, depending entirely upon the choice of company one chooses to habitually and continually keep and “hang with” in their lives.
The decision to follow or not follow The LORD’S advice and counsel in this psalm, will be the determining factor in either experiencing horrible resulting repercussions, or the incredibly joy filled benefits of The LORD. For it is entirely up to us, as individuals, to not listen to or participate in, vile, disgusting talk, that all to often takes a wrong turn and becomes a charged atmosphere of thunderous ridicule and divisiveness, along with lightning bolts of criticism, judgmental attitudes and rude mocking of and about others.
Each one of us must make the prudent decision and wise choice of deliberately following, with great diligence, the wise counsel and advice given to us in this psalm!
Let us choose to not ever enter into conversations that belittle, tear down, decimate and destroy others. Rather, let us choose to enter into and be a part of conversations that build others up, protect, encourage, renew and refresh them, before and in the presence of others.
We will truly only be able to accomplish this if we will choose to continually spend time reflecting, meditating, considering and contemplating upon the life-giving Word of The LORD! Blessings…
