Proverbs 16:7-9 (NIV)
7 When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way,
he causes their enemies to make peace with them.
8 Better a little with righteousness
than much gain with injustice.
9 In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.
I FEEL PEACE ~
I know that the Lord establishes my steps
As I look at the picture above, I feel peace inside of it. The calm water, a bench to sit and rest, plus trees. A tree with roots that go deep into the grown and stands tall. I can picture myself sitting there and thinking things over. Maybe the wonder of life at times or maybe seeing all the things God has brought me through in life. Just sitting to count blessings of a new day. You must find where your alone time is with God. He wants to speak to each of us and follow his plan of life.
I got up and thought I had a plan. I immediately looked at my phone and discovered that plans had change. Suddenly thing happen and we must reschedule somethings of life. If you are going through a hard time today, don't reschedule God. He is a God of now and I'm thankful that he is always there. Unconditional love in many ways and yet conditions on some of his ways. Loving God with a complete heart, mind and soul.
Mark 12:30-31 (NIV)
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
Isaiah 26:3-4 (NIV)
3 You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
4 Trust in the Lord forever,
for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
Purpose this a good day. Share hope as you head out of your house or message someone today. God is a good God and we need to tell of his love. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I feel peace today when I think about all God has already done for me. I see hope in today and determined to stay focused. That means to be stedfast and know that God is your rock.
Happy first day of November and fall is in the air!
