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. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Psalm 1:1-3
The life God has given us in Christ is that of great glory and prosperity. You’re ordained to prosper, not just financially or in certain aspects of your life, but all-round – in everything and in every way. This ought to be your experience of life. Our opening verse gives us the key to this all-round prosperity, where everything you do and everything that has to do with you prospers! It’s by delighting yourself in the law of the Lord – His Word – and meditating on it day and night!
How prosperous do you want to be? How glorious do you want your life to be? If you’d delight yourself in the Lord, and meditate on His words regularly or frequently, you’ll be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. You’ll bring forth fruit in due season; your leaves will not wither, and whatsoever you do shall prosper.
“Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” Isaiah 58:14
How do you delight yourself in the Lord? It’s by giving yourself to His Word; doing His Word; meditating on it day and night, and living it! Desiring God’s Word and cherishing it more than your necessary food (Job 23:12)! When you do these, everything you do will prosper and turn out right. Whatever you get involved in will work. That’s my life! Everything I do prospers. That’s because I’ve made the Word my delight and my meditation.
Your life is ordained by God to go from one level of glory to another. He created you for success, excellence, dignity, honour and beauty. This ought to reflect in every aspect of your life: in your job, health, family, relationships, business, ministry, etc. – you’re to prosper exceedingly! Remember, prosperity, success, divine health, the good life are all your birthright in Christ Jesus. Our study today is to help you realize this and know some of the things you’re to do to experience the prosperity of God and the manifold blessings of the Spirit in your life.
