There are times when you have to clear the way for understanding. Yet wisdom, knowledge and direction can be something you rarely see if your focus is on self and not on others.
Think about the needs you see. Some people are living comfortably in the hole that they dug for themselves. Others live on the ledge or slippery slope of their own making. Some have even chosen to let other dominate their lives and dictate all they do, think and accomplish.
That is not what God intends for His people. He has given us strength, His strength. God has given us wisdom, His wisdom. He has given us truth to be our guide, His truth. Let His best fill you to overflowing.
Psalm 130:4-8 NLT
But you offer forgiveness, that we might learn to fear you. I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word. I long for the Lord more than sentries long for the dawn, yes, more than sentries long for the dawn. O Israel, hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is unfailing love. His redemption overflows. He himself will redeem Israel from every kind of sin.
He is our forgiveness and forgiver. We can fear, respect and worship Him.
We can count on God, always.
He is our hope, hope found in His word.
Our days are built by, blessed by and dressed by our incredible God.
We put our hope in the Lord.
His love is unfailing and never ending.
We are redeemed by Him, overflowing redemption.
Our failure, our weakness, our sin is dealt with by His love, hope and forgiveness.
That is the God we have come to know and love. The word of God is full of truth that we have the opportunity to hold tight to. Hold the truth. Share that truth. Realize from start and finish that God is our light which puts a smile on our faces!
