"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night." Psalm 1:1, 2
IN JESUS TODAY!
There are three ways to automatically disqualify ourselves from receiving the blessings of God in our life. First, we see that walking in the counsel of the ungodly will disqualify us. To walk in the counsel of the ungodly simply means to listen to and follow the advice of those that hate God, and would like to replace his law with another rule of law. If we desire to be blessed by God we must desire God's law and his counsel. Secondly, we see that standing in the way of sinners disqualifies us from the blessings of God, understandably, since we know that God has already stated that the wages of sin is death, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 Knowing this, we can understand the outcome if we should stand in the way of sinners, committing with them those sins, which God hates and rewards those that commit them with the penalty of sin,which is recompense. Finally, we see that if we sit in the seat of the scornful, we are automatically disqualified from God's blessings, by sitting in the seat of the scornful we become like unto those that mock God, and we show our attitude of unbelief, and our heart of rebellion against God and his laws. To scorn God, God's law, or God's children is to not believe in him, and dismiss his ways as a joke! Automatic Disqualification begins with us, and our heart's condition towards God!
So then how it that we can qualify for God's blessings? Since we have discussed how to be disqualified, how then is it that we can qualify for the blessings of God? This is it, "But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night." Psalm 1:2 We qualify for God's blessings when we delight in his law and when we meditate in it day and night refusing to walk in the counsel of the ungodly, or to stand in the way of sinners, or to sit in the seat of the scornful! Delight in God's law today and you will be eligible for God's blessings!
