Psalm 1 Bible Study
1. Meditate on God’s words and abide in him
If you meditate on God’s words and abide in him, God will always abide in you and protect your ways. God is our provider. He promised to provide all our needs because he is our God. All we need to do is to tell him our needs and surrender all our problems to him and put him first in our lives. In Matthew 6:33, but seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. In 1 John 3:24, and he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
2. God will never forsake us
God will never forsake us unless we choose to disobey and leave him. In Romans 8:38-39, for I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. But God will always welcome us back when we confess our sins and repent. In 1 John 1:9, if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
