Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!I wanted to share with you some things the Lord had given to me today,I hope and pray it blesses you;In Jesus name,Amen.Listen To His Word,(Proverbs 2:6) For the Lord gives wisdom;from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.Many people run from place to place to find wisdom.They follow the latest fad always searching,they believe they'll find wisdom just around the next corner.Instead,they find disillusionment.But,there's a book and it contains the word of God.He alone gives wisdom.He's the very author of wisdom.Every word that comes from him gives us wisdom and understanding.We only need to stop long enough to listen.God's Way (Psalm 119:35) Give me understanding,and I shall keep Your law;indeed,I shall observe it with my whole heart.God wants us to understand how to live for him.He doesn't want to keep it a secret from us because he knows what's best for us.God's way protects us from the dangers that can overtake us when we take our own way.He doesn't want us to live like that.So,he helps us grasp his commands.He opens up scripture to us so we can apply it to our life.More than anything else,God wants us to follow him.He'll lead the way if we allow him to.How To Follow (Psalm 103:17-18) But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him.His salvation extends to the children's children of those who obey his commandments.If we follow the Lord,he promises to love us.That doesn't mean that our obedience earns his love.What it means is that our willingness to obey him,we allow him to work through us.We follow him because we recognize that he knows what's best for us.He'll lead us his way,which leads to a better life.Build Others Up (Ephesians 4:29)Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,that it may benifit those who listen.The more we grow in the Lord,the more he shapes and molds us into his image.This affects every area of our life:our words,our deeds,our character.All these things are out there for other people to see.They see what we do and hear what we say.If they know we're a Christian,they can use our misspoken words against us.But if we follow God,we make sure our words build people up,not tear them down or offend them.What we do and say fits who we are.Lord of All (Ephesians 6:7) Work with entusiasm,as though you are working for the Lord rather than for people.Not everyone hops out of bed,anxious to get to work.For some people,work-any kind of work is drudgery instead of fulfillment.But,we can look at our work in a different light.How would we view our work if God was our boss?Ultimately,we do work for the Lord.If he's Lord of our life,he's Lord over everything,including our work.Therefore,we can get out of bed with anticipation,willingly commit our work to him and work with enthusiasm.My Hope Is You (Psalm 25:5) Show me your ways,O Lord,teach me your paths;guide me in your truth and teach me,for you are God my Savior,and my hope is in you all day long.Too often,we want to figure things out for ourselves.But,God is longing for us to turn to him and ask him to show us the right way to go.If we do,he'll take us down his path.God knows what's best for us.He knows that only His way leads to life.When we humbly follow him,he will guide us to his righteousness.Our humility enables him to teach us his truth.His truth fills us with hope because then God is in control-not us.Let Him Guide (Psalm 37:5) Commit everything you do to the Lord.Trust him,and he will help you.We can trust the Lord with everything we do.And when we commit everything to him,we can know for sure that he'll show us what he wants us to do with our life.He'll steer us into his will.We don't always see things from God's perspective.Sometimes,our point of view gets muddled.But,God helps us see clearly.He points out the path ahead and helps us grow in our relationship to him.It's total dependance on God and yeilding, putting Jesus first in all we do and everything we do,Amen!God Bless.
