Psalm 1:1 (NKJV) Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful
From when Kalu was a teenager, he had become born again. He was very committed
to youth fellowship from his teenage years. When he was now married many years later, he noticed that he did not enjoy the blessing of God as he expected. He found out through prophecy that it was because He was not living his life according to Psalm 1.
He wondered because he did not have any unbeliever friends, nor could he recall ever sitting with sinners to discuss.
But as he examined his life closely under the light of God’s word, he realized that even though he never consulted ungodly people for counsel, he was now living his life according to their counsel and judgments.
When a Christian has the same value system and worldview as the ungodly, he walks in their counsel.
For example, the world believes that getting money is the most essential thing in life and that a man’s life is defined by the abundance of the things he has. If a Christian believes this too, that Christian is living according to the counsel of the ungodly, whether he sits with them or not.
Having the same mindset as that of the ungodly is a hindrance to the manifestation of your blessing.
Go into today asking the Lord to deliver you from every mindset and outlook to life that is contrary to His word and will.
