While preparing for bed, I was pondering on the word of God. Specifically about making my way prosperous and having good success because I delight in and meditate on the Law of God day and night.
The message here is the same as all of God’s messages throughout the scriptures. Learn to live his way or else. Produce fruit (behaviors and habits) that pleases him or else face problems that seems like there is no end in sight. Seek counsel from men and you will never find the end game.
Healing is not at the counsel of the ungodly and getting a Christian as a doctor doesn’t change the scriptures. Jesus died to heal you. Did God give us doctors or Jesus? He cannot give them both. One was spoken in prophecy and the other not at all. Tell me again, one more time, who God sent to heal you? Doctors do not heal. They provide perscriptions to help you feel different. Not better, but different than you were feeling.
The women who has issues with her blood, did what with all her money and was yet worse. Her condition made her so desperate she searched for an answer with men. Later she turned to God. That’s when she realized she had to do something herself. What she suffered became an opportunity to know God. It’s when she gave up and turned to him; she got healed.
Throughout the Bible are hidden truths that all fit together to open the eyes and to give strength in weakness.
There is a mixture of scriptural fulfillment in these words.
Psalm 1 1-6
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. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Verse 1 is about not being conformed to this world; being transformed by the renewing of the mind. This is about answering problems from the perspectives of men.
Verse 2 is what Paul spoke of when he delighted in persecution. Why? Because trials and tribulations are opportunities for spiritual growth. To connect with Jesus Christ to learn from him how to act or respond to situations. It also fulfills St. Jn 15th chapter about abiding him him and bringing forth fruit as a result.
Verse 3 is the outcome from the behavior of rejecting the teachings and counsel of men, to the delight and medittion on God’s laws. The laws that govern life. Examples written in Deuteronomy 28 and all over the Bible.
Verse 5 - judgement in verse 5 means decision making skills. The ungodly will not stand in the judgement? It doesn’t make sense, its a incomplete phrase. It’s almost as if to say the ungodly will not stand in judgement with the godly, but it doesnt. Taken in its context, the scriptures are showing comparison and we can complete the translation by inferring that it means thoughts, thinking, behavior and etc. why?
Meditation creates good outcomes, you prosper because of the decisions you make and you think and act differently than those in verse 1. Note confirmation already written in 1st Cor. 1 & 2
