Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV
1 Kings 7
Do things correctly and do them with excellence.
2 “Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: 3 Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
Another favorite promise from the Lord for me!
Israel is well blessed with good and prosperity the Lord has provided as promised and the best is still yet to come. Our Messiah comes through the line of Judah for His Kingship. The Lord’s Word is as sure as the coming of day and night each and every day.
‘The Lord is our righteousness.’
I have watched the Parable of the Sower come to reality repeatedly over the years. It is always a heartbreak when the Word is not planted on “good soil” because of what people choose. It is a joy when they choose the “good soil”! Growth from a seed is a wonderful mystery from God. If you want to know more about mustard seeds turning to large trees, listen to my message from yesterday on the website. The disciples asked the wrong question. The peace of my Lord is on the top 5 list of His blessings on me!
Meditate & Apply: Excellence doesn’t mean perfect; it means all that I can with the grace of God. Correctly means preparations. It is wonderful Lord that I can ask and You answer me! You always do what you say. Thank You Lord! My application is to trust and wait on You for Your timing. I am so grateful for the peace that is in my life from the Lord no matter the situation. I never want to take it for granted!
Wonderful clarifications - excellence not perfection. Correctly means preparations. If we prepare, and do our best and listen to God we'll do it right the first time and achieve excellence. Super encouraging!
Amen! Excellence. Doing what I can with God's grace.
