Walking, Standing, Sitting

“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked…” – Psalm 1:1a

Walking implies the person is still moving, continuing on in a certain way.

Where does your advice come from? Do you get counseling from people who do not know Jesus? Keep close confidences within the family of God and you will be blessed. Don’t look to the world for advice and understanding.

“…or stand in the way of sinners…” – Psalm 1:1b

Standing shows that a person has stopped and is interested and attentive to sinful thinking.

Don’t stop your walk with Christ and shift your focus and attention to worldly thinking.

“…or sit in the seat of mockers.” – Psalm 1:1c

Sitting implies the person is comfortable and engaged, he has stopped moving all together and joined.

Don’t allow yourself to get comfortable in a sinful habit, it can turn into a life style at this point.

Are you following the path Christ has laid out for you, or are you walking a path of your own making and choosing? Are you standing in a place you shouldn’t be, interested and attentive to worldly things? What about sitting in a comfortable habitual sin?

How do I keep myself from walking, standing or sitting where I shouldn’t?

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.” – Psalm 1:2

Delight in the instruction and word of God! Keep my mind focused on things that are of him and meditate on his ways.

“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.” – Psalm 1:3

I will be like a tree with plenty of water. No withering and bearing much fruit! Strong and healthy and nourished. This is God’s plan and desire for all His children! Walk in His ways, stand in His understanding, and sit in His presence! AMEN!
