- How are we being influenced? What are we allowing to influence us? Have we fallen to the compromise of “ungodly” influences? Just what is this walk “in the counsel of the ungodly?” Walk speaks of the direction we are going. When we go in the direction of worldly wisdom, we are under ungodly influences. After we go in the direction of seeking advice from the ungodly, we then begin to identify with the ungodly. “Standeth in the way of sinners” speaks of how we are now identifying with the way of sinners. “Sitteth in the seat of the scornful” speaks of a resting place. We have landed on a position that we feel very comfortable with. We first just walked around some ungodly counsel, then we began to stand around in ungodly counsel, finally we adopt it for our very own.
- What are you becoming? How we are influenced will reflect in what we become in character. Ask yourself, “What kind of person am I becoming?” The person who delights in the Bible will become like a tree planted by the rivers of water. That tree is fruitful, durable and prosperous. The ungodly are not so. They are like the chaff that the wind blows away following any whim or belief that comes their way.
- How will you be judged? There is a destiny we will all be a part of. The ungodly will not be able to stand on judgment day. The Lord knows the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish.To make the most of your walk with God begins by Godly influences. Godly character is what God is looking for…He’s looking for His own.
Love you all,
