I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Romans 12:1 ESV
2 Chronicles 26-27
5 He set himself to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who instructed him in the fear of God, and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper.
There is no getting around it, as I seek God, He prospers me! This is not the reason to seek Him, it is just a benefit He bestows upon those who do. Pride only produces ugliness.
6 So Jotham became mighty, because he ordered his ways before the Lord his God.
Mightiness comes from ordering my ways before the Lord.
The visions Daniel had are again confirmations of the visions of Ezekiel and John in The Revelation. All of this points to the return of our Lord Yeshua to rule and reign forever. Finally there will be righteousness!
2 Thessalonians 3
3 But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.
Thank You for this wonderful promise, Lord! There should never be weariness in doing good (doing things God’s way).
Apply Today: Seek God, just stop and ask Him before acting. Order my ways before Him continuously. Stop and evaluate to make sure. I desire Your return Lord but I know though it will eventually be glorious for all that choose You, I also know it will be a great wrath upon those who choose the devil. I am guarded from the evil one by my Lord Yeshua, today and every day! I will not grow weary as I follow You, Lord!
His guarding us against the evil one is a very special promise indeed! I love this - Order my ways before Him continuously. Stop and evaluate to make sure. I don't want to assume i'm doing the right thing, I need to make sure He doesn't want to adjust anything.
Doing things God's way is always worth it! I love that I am strengthened and protected from the evil one. I pray this for my children as well.
Amen! Seeking God is stopping and resting in Him. I need to not just seek Him but stop and hear Him, listening and then obeying. God is good! His mercies endure forever! But, there's always stuff to get through. Praise God, He sees us through those stuff!
Amen to all comments!
