When you’re troubled by what is going on around you, what should you do? Usually that is the first question that pops in your mind, right? No matter what the situation or circumstances, you’re troubled by how it is affecting you, others and your life. Well, I don’t have the answers but I give a direction to focus towards. Most of us use our personal knowledge base to work out a solution. We lean on our own thinking to bring an answer. Sometimes, it works out okay and we see a difference begin to happen. But most times, than not…we find the result are temporary and fading. This is when we must stand on the word of God alone. Why, you might ask is God’s word above eduction and folk-lore? Well, because it has stood the test of time. And it will continue to go forth in time…because the Word of God creates. You might look at the bible as a book with words that man has written to confirm a religious belief. And that is right. But it is an inspired word by the author. It is an account of time that the author created. It is a tangible tool that we can use to reference what is the truth for the basis of our existence. If you get the chance to read about the Dead Sea Scrolls, for instance, you may find it fascinating how they came to be preserved in a cave inside clay pots. But it is not a mere coincidence that God directed simple Bedouin herders to find these centuries after they were hidden in these caves. God is a faithful teacher. His word instructs people to a life that is full of His promises if we believe and trust in Him. Begin. Walk in God’s word daily and prove His love is unfailing towards you and in your life. Blessings.
“I will heal their waywardness” and love them freely,” for my anger has turned away from them. I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like a lily. Like a cedar of Lebanon he will send down his roots; his young shoots will grow. His splendor will be like an olive tree, his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon. Men will dwell again in his shade. He will flourish like the grain.
He will blossom like a vine, and his fame will be like the wine from Lebanon. O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols? I will answer him and care for him. I am like a green pine tree; your fruitfulness comes from me. Who is wise? He will realize these things. Who is discerning? He will understand them. The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous will walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.”
Blessings to you today as God brings His sweet fragrance and morning dew to your heart.
