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; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. 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. (Psalm 1:1-3 ESV)
A man is blessed when he does not go the way of sinners but delights and meditates on the law of God. The effect of the Word (Law) of God in His life is that it produces fruitfulness, vitality, and prosperity.
In this new year, may the Word of God become more influential in my life. I will seek to make the Word of God a daily part of my life as I read, study, and meditate on its truths for my life.
Lord it is your Word that brings about the changes I am looking for in life. They are changes that will produce fruitfulness, vitality and prosperity. When I am tempted to place trust in other things my You draw me back to Your Word.
