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.
What waters are you planted by? The fruit that a person is bearing is evidence of the water that supplies their life. When we as born-again believers receive counsel from the ungodly we yield the soil of our heart to corrupt seed that will ultimately produce corrupt fruit. Our position is in Christ where rivers of life flow. God’s word causes our lives to flourish and yield luscious healthy edible fruit that nourish many. The rivers of water that flow out to us from the word of God keep us clean and our fruit untainted. When we delight in God’s word and allow it to saturate and penetrate every area of our lives; whatever we do will prosper and our work here on the earth will never wither.
