PSALM 1

The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

1 Blessed is the man

Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

Nor stands in the path of sinners,

Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,

And in His law he meditates day and night.

3 He shall be like a tree

Planted by the rivers of water,

That brings forth its fruit in its season,

Whose leaf also shall not wither;

And whatever he does shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so,

But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall 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 ungodly shall perish.

Blessed is the man....... who Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly....Nor stands in the path of sinners..... Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

Deuteronomy 30:1515 “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, 16 in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the LORD your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. 17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess. 19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”

The Lord is more concerned by the methods of our success then he is our success. God is the giver of success-he's not looking for help he's looking for our humility. There many influences vying for our mental attention. In this passage will learn that God cares about our methods in our motives more than he does the money in our bank accounts or any trapping of success that the world might be fooled by.
Are "blessedness", comes from the fact that we're in fellowship with God which should bring us joy.
One should never confuse joy with the feeling of bliss often associated with "happiness". Our joy is a result of the relationship we have with God in Jesus.

While some may see our success as a result of whatever labor we're engaged in; we realize that our provision comes from God. Therefore we must be careful the tactics we use in growing successful that we don't disqualify ourselves in our actions from the provision that God wants to give us.

what are the methods that we are using?
are we looking for a quick fix or a short cut?
Who [walks not] in the counsel of the ungodly
have we considered the true price of the fix or shortcut?

[Nor sits] in the seat of the scornful; This word scornful is the same word used elsewhere in the wisdom literature and translated as scornful is the same word for mocker in the proverbs. a fool is one who will not consider or value the counsel of God, his word or his way.

And in His law he meditates day and night.
the word of God here is more than the text. it is the heart and mind of God.
Planted by the rivers of water,
my mind is on his law in the day in my business.
in the Night as i’m with my family i’m looking to the Lord.
in my play im looking to the heart of God and the wisdom of God to establish MY PATH.

Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
The Prosperity promised here is a result of access to my heart and mind.
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
some of us need to stop trying to force God to cosign on the visions of the flesh and renew ourselves.
And whatever he does shall prosper.
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
personal failure
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
