Psalms 1:4,5,6

Psalms Chapter one verses four, five and six:  "The ungodly are not so:  but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.  For the Lord knows the way of the righteous:  but the way of the ungodly shall perish.  (KJV without the eths)


Chaff is the husk around the wheat kernel.  The wheat was put in a basket and shook to loosen the husk.  The wheat, then, was tossed into the air where the wind catches the husk and blows it away.  There is no stability in the lives of those who do not trust in the Lord, no victory or overcoming abilities that Christ offers us.  And that is a shame.  Because Jesus has done this for us and given His name and Word to overcome.   He said on the cross just before He died, "It is finished!"  His work was done.  What He did after that was being raised from the dead and He is now sitting on the right hand of the Father praying and making intercession for us.  He WANTS us to succeed!


As I was writing this the Lord showed me another meaning of verse 4.  As we go through this world, living our lives, working for the Lord in every area of life, the cares of it sometimes attach themselves to us.  We live in a broken world--a fallen world.  Some of these cares are the challenges, mistakes we face every day.  I think mostly they are memories of past hurts that plague us.  While we are in this life, to overcome these is to first repent, and then to get into praise and worship to the Lord.   This re-focuses our minds and hearts.  It stops the mouth of the enemy that keep these thoughts just rolling and rolling in our heads and puts us in tune with the Lord opening the channel to hear His voice.  But continuing on with what He showed me:  when the rapture happens and we are caught up all this chaff dust that has attached itself to us will blow away.  And we will no longer have to deal with our minds being plagued!!!   PRAISE the LORD!!! 


The Jewish Bible says in verse 5, " For this reason (in verse 4) the wicked won't stand up to the judgment nor will sinners."  When it comes time for all of us to stand before the Lord, the wicked and sinners will be blown away like chaff.  They will have no defense.  But as true Christians, disciples of Jesus, Jesus is our defense.  We will be able to stand up to the judgment; not in our own selves, but because we have given our lives to Him and we are covered with His blood.  Proverbs 21:3 says, " To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice."  And verse 15, "It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity."


It is good and wonderful to know that the Lord knows us.  Nahum 1:7, "The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble, and he knows them that trust in Him."  Second Timothy 2:19, "Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure, having this seal, 'The Lord knows them that are His.  And let every one that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.'"


Look to the Lord in all you do today and everyday.  He loves you so much!
