Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly…….

Something comes one way not only once but forever. Other things come another way forever heading toward sad outcomes.

 

Isaiah 40:31

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Everyone gets tired-tired of challenges that bring pain. Suffering passes our way no matter where we are at. But the Lord is merciful and will strengthen all those that remain on the paths where He leads. Waiting for the Lord’s direction is packed with benefits.

 

Isaiah 55: 6-9

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Accept His mercy. Follow where God leads, hear what God speaks, agree with what God approves. He is above all.

Colossians 1:16,17

Friday, April 4th, 2014

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Worship God alone.

 

Psalm 19:14

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

Yes. To say what pleases God to control the tongue is needful. And to align the heart on the best path how awesome! Let us not sway from putting ourselves through the paces gladly.

James 3:14-18

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

There is one direction that goes forward-that which progresses and does not stand still or go backwards. There is one direction that goes up not down-that which reaches for higher thoughts and more steady existence. Arguing, picking up habits that leave one hollow, rigidity leaning toward controversies that disrespect independent thoughts which are the fabric of a life-all of this hurts. God is not wanting to be mad at people all the time but He draws people to His way of thinking. He has demands, yes, since He is the supreme ruler. But so does a loving parent draw their child with firmness as well as with love.
