Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. Proverbs 27:1 ESV
1 Chronicles 18-19
Walking rightly with the Lord brings us victory everywhere we go! David was just and equitable which are attributes of our Lord. It doesn’t matter how many fill the enemy’s camp when someone rises up against those who belong to the Lord. It could be everyone in the world against me but the Word tells me that if God is for me, NO ONE can be against me (Romans 8:31)!
The Word of the Lord always comes to pass. Just saying, again!
Walk, Live and Stay in FAITH!
10 For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” 11 Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”[d] 12 But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.” 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”— 14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.
Honestly, it is hard not to quote this entire chapter as it is by far on my top list of absolute favorites because it really clarifies what faith is and what faith does!
Application: Stay in right step with my Lord not just because He gives me victory but because I love Him. God is no respecter of people so I cannot be either. As David was just and equitable, so I must be. I never have to worry about anyone or anything rising against me for my God is always with me! Walk, Live and Stay in FAITH!
Yes, a good reminder to stay in faith at all times!!! Even when the weeds are thick.
Amen! Thick weeds mean no drought!!!
It could be everyone in the world against me but the Word tells me that if God is for me, NO ONE can be against me (Romans 8:31)! - HALLELUJAH!!!!
Walk, Live and Stay in FAITH! - AMEN!
...but because I love Him. - God is a relational God. I don't do things out of fear or because it is a task I want to check off. I do the things God asks me to do because He loved me first, and I love Him back! Amen!
