"But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more." Psalm 71:14

Each of us has been a situation that on the surface looked hopeless.  We have been in a place where we just did not know what we were going to do, or how we were going to get out of what we were in, but somehow in the midst of it all God stepped in and made a way out of no way.

“but whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.” Proverbs 1:33 (ESV)

Do The Right Thing

“But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.” 1 Timothy 6:11 (ESV)

There are times in life when we will come to some crossroads, and have to make a decision of which way we should go.  The decision to go the right way or the wrong way does not seem like a difficult decision, but there are times when the wrong way does not seem that wrong and it seems to be easier than the right way.

"I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land." Psalm 143:6

It Is Always Right To Do Right

05-04-2019

"To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.” Proverbs 21:3 (ESV)

If we are honest with ourselves it is not always easy to do the right thing.  There are times when we struggle between doing what we know is right, and doing what we want to do.  We know that we should help someone because it is the right thing to do, but when we think about something they may have done to us or said about us, we struggle with doing what is right.

“Then Saul said, “Let us go down after the Philistines by night and plunder them until the morning light; let us not leave a man of them.” And they said, “Do whatever seems good to you.” But the priest said, “Let us draw near to God here.” 1 Samuel 14:36 (ESV)

Many of us grew up in a time when it was imperative to follow the directions of our parents.  We did not get an opportunity to do something simply because everyone else was doing it.  We had to follow the directions and orders of our house, and many of our parents would tell us that they did not care what anyone else was doing, we had to do what we were told to do in their house.

Stay Focused

04-30-2019

“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!” Psalm 37:7 (ESV)

Trusting in The Lord is a faith walk that requires us to have faith every step of the way.  When we look around and see people who do not serve The Lord getting ahead, and seeing those who put The Lord on a shelf and take Him down when they need Him, seemingly prospering at every hand, it becomes difficult to keep the faith.
