Psalm 1 presents things very simply. There are two ways to live. One results in blessing, the other in destruction. These two ways are set before Israel and the whole world. We can either live the Word-centered life from God or the sin-centered life fro now. As this Psalm indicates at the beginning of the inspired Psalter, this matter is especially important as we go to worship God. That you too would choose the life of the righteous, justified believer, I want to see from this Psalm three aspects of the righteous man.
Moses’s three questions in chapter 4 expose Moses’s fear and unbelief. Yet for each of Moses’s three objections, God patiently brings himself back into Moses’s thoughts. Moses was very hesitant to obey God’s call. All of us can be the same way. The point is this, we must submit to God’s will. In big things, in little things, in hard things, and in difficult things, we must lovingly submit to the will of God. In this passage, there are three reasons why we should submit to God.
