English Standard Version
The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked
1 Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
I am blessed to look back at my life and see so many blessings. I may not like everything that happened in life but I can see how God brought me through times that were hard. Not only did he bring me through those times, but he grew me in those times. I love this chapter above and I read it often. Blessed in the one whose delight is in the law of the Lord. The Bible holds truths and guidance. We can read of stories of life and see the hand of God at work.
Whatever you are facing today, face it knowing God's word is powerful and truth. We learn to walk by faith and allow the peace of God to be present in our lives.
King James Version7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
