Scripture: Psalm 119:1-7
Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the Lord.
2 Blessed are those who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart—
3 they do no wrong
but follow his ways.
4 You have laid down precepts
that are to be fully obeyed.
5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast
in obeying your decrees!
6 Then I would not be put to shame
when I consider all your commands.
7 I will praise you with an upright heart
as I learn your righteous laws.
8 I will obey your decrees;
do not utterly forsake me.
The law of the Lord, His statutes, His precepts, His decrees, His commands, His righteous laws are all basically God’s word.
Further in Joshua 1:8
8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
When we meditate on God’s word day and night and obey it, we will be blessed (prosperous and successful).
Definition of prosperous and successful/blessed is not necessary all the wealth in the world. It is achieving purpose. It is seeking God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, it is drawing souls to Christ.
