Say So: Psalm 1 … Thirsty

Psalm 1 (ESV)

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.

The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; for the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Thirsty

Spiritual blessing is the fruit of focus.

We are thirsty-souled people living in a land crowded with so-called wells of wisdom, most of which contain toxic, stagnant opinions tainted by the best of humanity’s intellect. Some wells, though, are brimming with life-giving truth that originates with God, not man. It is wisdom man doesn’t conceive, but only receives.

Fruitfulness is had by those who choose to drench their souls with God’s word. All the more reason to carefully test the water of the wells we frequent. Where we find little to no Scripture, we are bound to find little to no blessing.

The best well of all is the Bible itself. We would do well to dive daily, prayerfully into its waters and drink as deeply as we are able. Doing so ensures that our flawed thinking will be renewed, releasing us to bear every bit of the fruit God intends.
