May 13

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.  Proverbs 31:30 CSB


Deuteronomy 30

There is always hope for people returning to the Lord!  Here He lets people know that they do have the opportunity to return to their senses and return to the Lord.  Thank You Father that this includes our children.  What hope this brings to my heart!  You are so merciful and forgiving, full of grace and love that no one can thwart!  On top of all this, when this happens you return all of the Blessing to a greater degree!  You are so wonderful, my Lord!  Your message is placed by You in my heart and mouth so that I can choose life and live forever with my Redeemer! 

19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, 20 love the Lord your God, obey him, and remain faithful[g] to him. For he is your life, and he will prolong your days as you live in the land the Lord swore to give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

Isaiah 2

I declare, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob.  He will teach us about His ways so that we may walk in His paths.”  For Instruction will go out of Zion and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

There will no longer be war, Hallelujah!  Pride will be brought down and humility prevail.  My God will be continuously glorified!  You alone Lord will be exalted by all of Your creation!  My trust can only be in You, my God who lives forever.

Titus 1

My God cannot EVER lie!  Once again we have the requirements for eldership.  I do not see exceptions.  The assignment is to live in the righteousness of the Lord, encourage with “sound teaching” and to refute all who contradict the Word of Truth.  My works either prove that I live for the Lord or not.  Lord, I want to live for You so any works that are not from You, direct me to repent and follow after Your ways only.  Help me to have a heart that always sees Your plans and always forgives no matter the circumstances. 

Meditation: God’s promises are yes and amen no matter what life may look like today.  I purpose in my heart to trust You completely that, because You love me, because I know You and because I am a seeker of You, all is well!

Application:  I can trust my God today and every day in all things because He does not lie and His love goes beyond me and flows to my children, children’s children and their children!
