    Blessedness in the life of a believer comes from their constant consideration of God's mind/word.What is in your life shows to others.Only saved sinners/believers find comfort in the fact that God knows them.But for the grace of God,there is none righteous,no not one.God's voice is irresistible to those he gives life.He that hath the Son,hath life.Come unto me,is the invitation spoken by Jesus.
  • Evangerlist R.Williams
    Psalms 1; Is a clear view that we that are save should live like GODs children; we should be watching and praying not being deceiving by the different sinners we meet and greet That sinners can be converted to CHRIST through the life we as real children of GOD live. Not being a stumbling block living like the world and talking for CHRIST, LETS BE REAL by lifting up the name of JESUS at all times

    Psalm 1 :1 shows us that 3 positions are needful to do anything - stand, walk and sit. There are gravity for every position and the most is done while sitting - we sit to scorn, to plot evil (a position of rest)- the sitting position requires careful analysis etc. Believers must be careful and rather use this position to read and meditate on the Word of God.

    Psalms 1 gives us as believes guidance on how to carry on living a righteous life...it also encourages us in a way by letting us know that we are unstoppable in GOD,in His word.
