Psalm 1 :: The Way of the Righteous and the Ungodly


Psalm 1:6 records “For the Lord knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” While this is a verse that contrasts the way of the righteous and the way of the ungodly and calls to attention the result of the way of the ungodly, it is also a verse that indicates the omniscience of God. Proverbs 5:21 states that the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord and the Lord ponders (examines) all the ways of man. God’s eyes are on the way of the righteous and God will instruct and teach them in the way that they should go (Psalm 32:8); a way that leads to life and not to destruction (perishing).

Points to ponder:
Are you/I being instructed and guided by God? Is his eyes on you and me? For the Lord knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 1:6 (KJV)
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

1 Peter 3:12 (KJV)
12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
