THE BLESSED ONE OF THE LORD
“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. 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, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers” (Psalm 1:1-3 NIV).
This year, as new year prayer, I was led to use Psalm 1:3 to pray for people in my Internet ministry. The four-fold prayer has to do with prosperity of the blessed one of the Lord: he/she will be firmly established by the Lord and be made like a tree planted by the streams of water; he/she will be made fruitful in his/her endeavours; he/she shall not fade or wither in his/her undertakings; and everything he/she lay his/her hands on shall prosper. As good and desirous this prayer is, it is only for the blessed one of the Lord.
Verses one and two describe such blessed one of the Lord. He/she is a man/woman that does not in any way allow the wicked, sinners and scorners of this world to influence him/her. He/she does not casually go according to the way of bad people, stay with them or even abide by what they are doing. In other words, he/she does not follow wrong counsel, stand with the wrong companions or sit with people who are wilfully and persistently doing evil. Instead, he/she is influenced by the words of God and his/her delight is in doing the will of God. No wonder, the Lord will prosper him/her in all his/her endeavours. He/she will be made lively, beautiful, fruitful, useful, and enduring in all his/her undertakings.
Do you want to be the blessed one of the Lord that He will prosper this year? Do not be associated with evil and evil people. Delight yourself in obeying the will of God. The Bible says, “Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds” (Isaiah 3:10 NIV).
In His service,
