Psalmist’s Counsel – Part 1 – Walk Not

Key Verse

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,” Psalm 1:1a

Text — Psalm 1:1-3


Walk is an action word that requires one to go around or do things around an object or someone. God wants a clear separation between His children and the ungodly in every way. To walk in the counsel of the ungodly means to pattern, work with or follow the way of the ungodly. That is, to talk like them, think like them, dress like them or worship the way they do.

Patterning our ways after the ungodly does not bring blessings as the Bible declares, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly.” Rehoboam took the counsel of the ungodly and it brought regret and sorrow upon him. Amnon the son of David took to the ungodly counsel of Jonadab and it cost him his life. Eve also accepted the counsel from the serpent and it brought trouble to the human race.

In whose counsel do you walk? Romans 8:14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Do not follow multitude to sin. Separate from bad boys and girls, do not join in their jesting, rioting and disobedience. Keep company with only those who are godly.
