21 Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.
Today’s Inspiration: He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor. Proverbs 21:21. Whatever your wisdom and insight maybe, none can compare with that from the Lord. V30.
Pursue humility and fear of the Lord so that wealth, honor and life will follow you. When you pursue wealth, they will not respond. But when you pursue the Lord, He will provide beyond your comprehension for He knows your heart and what you need more than you know yourself.
Commendation from the Lord takes priority over commendation of self and by others. 2 Corinthians 10:17. We should always boast in the Lord. We are not to look at surface of things but explore deeply the roots of all our trials. V7. Unless our faith increased, our areas of activity will not expand. God always rewards us according to our deeds done in faith. Faith without works is dead. Unless we know the profound truths of the Gospel, we will tend to live a life of compromise. Conformity to the world and to deception will make us vulnerable to destruction. But it’s His word that heals. Psalm 107:20.
Our belief should be that of Jesus who modelled the life of obedience and listening to His voice like a sheep listening and responding only to the voice of the shepherd. John 10:27. Unless we have His Son Jesus, we do not have life. The Father judges no one but has entrusted all judgement to His Son. John 5:22. As a man walking on Earth, Jesus acts only upon what He hears for He seeks only on what He hears and His judgement is just for He seeks not to please Himself but for His Father who sent Him to this Earth with a redemptive plan for the world. John 5:30.
Prayer: Man is like a breath, his days are like a fleeting shadow. O Lord what is men that You care for him, the son of man that You think of him. Your plans we cannot fathom. I will forever praise You, my Lord and my God forever, my stronghold and my deliverer. Amen.
