Sunday Night Study - Psalm 1Speaker:
Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

Psalm 1 Sunday Night Study
Psalm 1 is not only the first of all 150 Psalms but also the first of Book ______ of the Psalms.
It is clear from their content many of them were also __________________, and we will be encouraged at the total honesty these men of God pray with.
This Psalm is the first of many “_________________” psalms.
This Psalm is also the first of many in the Psalms that has chiastic ____________.
Notice the progression – sin starts in the head, and then leads to definite steps of action ____________________ from what the godly would do.
Now one thing I like about Psalm one is that it does not just present being a godly person in negative terms, but goes on to present a beautiful picture that is _________________ in verses 2-3.
Three types of questions that help you meditate on the Word of God---
1. O_______________ What does the text ___________?
2. I________________ What does the text ___________?
3. A________________ How does this ________________ to my life?
“I have no rest but in a nook, with the Book!”
Thomas A Kempis, Author of the Imitation of Christ!
The water that nourishes the tree is like the nourishment we receive from our ____________________ with our Triune God, Father, Son and Spirit.
I love the phrase “the ______________________ of the righteous!”
I think the Psalmist is anticipating what David calls in Psalm 23, “_____________ in the house of the Lord forever!”
What an encouragement in verse six to the righteous person who has ________________ the taunts of mockers…
Have you wondered lately if God is there?
Have you wondered if God cares?
These Psalms will be filled with ___________________ saints crying out to God asking where He is and if He cares!
But Psalm one ends with the promise that God is _____________________ over the way of the righteous!
In verse 1 the blessed man chose not to stand or sit with sinners; ___________ God justly forbids the sinner to stand or sit with those who are His! WOW!
