Topic: THE JOURNEY OF THE RIGHTEOUS 1
Bible Reading: Psalms 1:1a
📖1a….”Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,…”
🔥The first birth of all men results in a walk with men. A walk with either the blood of the parents, the will of the flesh of the parents, or the will of man (pride) of the parents of the born child…John 1:13. This is why a second birth is necessary. Since the first birth was never the will of the born child, he is forced to accept whichever family he grows up in. But God in his infinite mercies, decided to give the fleshly born humans a second birth, in which the child can decide the family he wants to be born into. This second birth allows the newly born to walk with God, if he agrees to be born into God’s family which is the Church.
🔥🔥You are born of God once you become a Christian (John 1:13). This leads you to walk with God and by God’s counsel towards your goals in life. But many Christians walk with ungodly counsellors. In our text quoted above, God wants us to walk only in godly counsels to be blessed. The invisible man who took a step towards blessings by God in Psalm one, started by walking. The purpose of his journey was to get blessed by pleasing God. In Rev 4:11, God’s word says we are created for God’s pleasure. So, every walk and work we engage in, in the faith, must be to make God happy.
🔥🔥🔥When David was found by God in the wildernesses in 1 Samuel 16:11, he decided to be after God’s heart so that he would receive righteousness from God. Everything he later did, was to please and pleasure God. This made God to address him in 1 Samuel 13:14 as a man after His heart. Beloveth, since we all are making the journey of the righteous, we need to only do what will make God happy, for God to also do what will make us happy. But it is impossible to pleasure God, if we are walking in the counsel of the ungodly.
🙏O Lord, deliver me from the will of parental birth that is capable of limiting my progress in life, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly Father, guide me on the path that will always teach me to please you, to ease my walk to righteousness in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Dear God, give me the spiritual intuition to always discern the ungodly, so I don’t get led by their counsels, in Jesus’ name.
