Proverbs 3:1-7 (NIV)
Wisdom Bestows Well-Being
My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you peace and prosperity.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
GOOD NEWS ~
Each day is a new beginning. Another chance to make life better. In verse 6 above, it speaks of submitting your ways to God and he will make your paths straight. It begins in you first saying yes to God and allowing him freedom to make plus mold you. Each of us goes through an experience that brings us through things to wisdom.
The Bible also speaks of winning favor and a good name. Our actions totally speak louder than words in life. Be a doer of the word of God in all things.
James 1:22`25 (NIV)
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
Be a doer of the word of God. Believe big and ask largely from God.
Let us not forget that life can sometimes be very hard. It does not mean that God does not care, it just life and we all face hard things. Your mindset is important and your outlook on it is important. Good news is God is still at work in our lives and suddenly even the worse situation can hold some good in it. I've seen too much to doubt that God cares and holding on by faith if so important.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends!
