The Blessed Man

“Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers” (Psalm 1:1-3).


There are two key words, in verse 2 “delight” and “meditates”.

His delight is in the Law of the Lord. His meditation is day and night, all the time.

The result is wonderful, fruitful, doesn't fade, and does prosper.

Meditation is not reading, studying, memorizing listening, or reciting. It is soaking in this wonderful truth by thanking God all of the time for this truth.

Let's do it together every day and every night.

“Blessed is the one
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the one
and in whose spirit is no deceit” (Psalm 32:1-2).


The blessed man is a forgiven man, his sins are covered, and not held against him.
