Psalmist’s Counsel – Part 2 – Stand Not

Key Verse

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners,” Psalm 1:1a,b

Text — Psalm 1:1-3


Standing is a form of posture that allows one to be in an upright position at a particular location. Therefore, standing and location go hand in hand because where you stand either physically or in decision making is located around someone or something. Lot decided to locate his dwelling place in the city of Sodom that was given to sin and evil. It took divine intervention for him and his daughters to be delivered from the destruction where he lost all that he had. He stood where the sinners were standing, close to where all their events and parties were happening. He did not only lose properties but his wife was also lost forever. DO NOT STAND IN THE WAY OF SINNERS!

What about Dinah the only daughter of Jacob. She went out to observe the ways of sinners, stood in their ways and she lost her virginity. Have you been secretly admiring the ways of sinners? Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Beware, make the right choices in friendship, type of school, type of books you read and sites you visit on the internet.
