Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. (NLT)
BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. (AMP)
Joy comes from the blessings poured out on you when you are not influenced by wrong or immoral guidance; when your life is lived out in such a way that a godly legacy is left wherever you go – while you are alive and upon your earthly demise.
You are blessed and set apart! That is the word God gives to those who are faithful to delight in His law and meditate on it day and night. Fruit will continuously abound in your life, home, business, family, and all that you put your hands to. Failure will not be your end as whatever you do will prosper. That is more reason than ever to be joyful!!!
Lord and Father, thank you for the never-ending reward you lavish upon me, when I remain faithful to your Word. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!!
