Happy Is The One...

I have several versions of the Bible. Below is Psalm 1 from the NET Bible ( Take a few moments to read it and allow the Holy Spirit to speak about the beautiful relationship there is between the followers of Jesus and the written Word of God.

Psalm 1

1:1 How happy is the one who does not follow the advice of the wicked,or stand in the pathway with sinners, or sit in the assembly of arrogant fools!

1:2 Instead he finds pleasure in obeying the Lord's commands; he intently studies his commands day and night.

1:3 He is like a tree planted by flowing streams;it yields its fruit at the proper time,and its leaves never fall off. He succeeds in everything he attempts.

1:4 Not so with the wicked! Instead they are like wind-driven chaff.

1:5 For this reason the wicked cannot withstand judgment, nor can sinners join the assembly of the godly.

1:6 Certainly the Lord rewards the behavior of the godly, but the behavior of the wicked is self-destructive.
