16 Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand riches and honor.
Today’s Inspiration: The Lord keeps assuring us that we should not be wise in our own eyes but to fear Him and depart from evil so that length of days be added to us and health will follow us all the days of our lives. Also we will have abundance. Proverbs 3.2, 7, 10. Length of days is in His right hand and on His left hand are riches, honour and life. V16.
If we are to receive grace, then we must sow grace at every opportunity. We are to study scriptures daily for reflection and to avoid the landmines others have tread.
The devil is always luring us to drink his poison and we should be alert so that we would not be ensnared. Christians who dwell on bitterness or resentment will end up doing much evil. If we are going to be like Him, which is the basic calling of every Christian, we must learn to take up the cross every day, resolving to also lay down our lives, our own rights even for those who attack us. It’s not easy. But to be like Jesus we must likewise do what He does. Sin no longer have hold over us. Jesus died and lay down his lives to save even those who attack him. If we are to be like Him, we must free ourselves from the snares of the enemy. Blessed are the merciful for they will be granted mercy.
We will not be able to cast out any spirit by our rage and intolerance. Anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. James 1:19-20. Do not allow enmity have any hold in your life. Take up our cross, resolve to overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21. We have to praise God continually assaulting and destroying the works of the enemy by doing good not for men to see but to please God. Let us live peaceably with all men. Romans 12:18.
