Walking with the Lord – Summer in the Psalms

Walking with the Lord

Blessed is the man
Who walks 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 I have 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.
Psalm 1: 1-3

   The children of God constantly flourish and are always watered with the secret influences of divine grace, so that whatever may befall them is conducive to their salvation; while, on the other hand, the ungodly are carried away by the sudden tempest, or consumed by the scorching heat. And when he says, he bringeth forth his fruit in season,  he expresses the full maturity of the fruit produced, whereas, although the ungodly may present the appearance of precocious fruitfulness, yet they produce nothing that comes to perfection.

(Calvin’s Commentaries, Vol. 8: Psalms, Part I)
