Planted by the Water – Psalms 1 & 2

The book of Psalms is a treasure-trove of wisdom for living live to its fullest. The riches of true knowledge and wisdom from heaven are given to us to have abundant life.

Psalms 1 says to avoid sinners and refuse the counsel of ungodly men. Instead, we are to get our wisdom from the Lord and the Law of God. This is what will bring forth fruit in our lives. It’s amazing how many people I meet who tell of a lack of fruit in their lives, but when asked if they read God’s Word every day, they want to change the subject.

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, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

Psalms 2 is a warning to rulers of the world to serve the Lord rather than plot against Him. This way He will make your lands prosperous and help you to rule. Otherwise, you will bring on His wrath.

May the Lord be your refuge today! Soak up His wisdom like that tree planted by the Water.

peace,
e
