God’s Ways vs. World’s Ways
Read: Psalm 1
Our delight as Christians is in knowing God and walking in His ways – firmly grounded in His word.
It is not the way of the Lord to live in the counsel of the ungodly – following their advice. In other words, we don't listen to what the world says we should do, but we do what God's word says to do. We don't stand in the path where sinners walk. In other words, we don't walk down the path they are walking, coming under their influence. We don't sit down to rest where the scornful and mockers gather – to be seen as like-minded with them.
God's ways are so different to the world's ways. The times we live in today are hard. There is so much the world is telling us that seems all right on the surface – but it's lies masked as truth. We need to pray that God would show us the truth amongst it all – seeking His counsel in it.
As we continue to live by God's word, we shall be like a tree firmly planted by streams. We shall be nourished and refreshed, always producing fruit in season. God blesses our stand for Him. No matter what the ungodly say or do, as we stand for Jesus and the truth of God's word – we shall be blessed.

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit... For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. ~ Romans 8:1; Romans 8:5
Your ways, Lord, are not the same
As what the world displays
Help me, Lord, to see the difference
And choose to walk your way.
