“How blessed is the one who does not follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand in the pathway with sinners, or sit in the assembly of scoffers!” Psalm 1:1
Those who are opposed to God, or spiritual living have usually followed the pathway described in this verse. They begin by listening to the voices of those without faith, they then pause or hang out in the place of the unfaithful. Finally, they are snared and end up with a position in the fellowship of unbelief. The best practice for the friend of God is to trust God’s word and avoid the counsel of unbelief. If you find yourself somewhere along that path today, repent! Go back to Jesus, and He will certainly receive you.
