Today’s Promise is Proverbs 16:20 NKJV:
“He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.”
When we don’t take God at His Word, and instead try to make His commands more palatable and easy to swallow, bending them to fit our agendas, adding our own spin, or just eliminating the parts that are inconvenient, confusion and strife are sure to result. When we trust in God’s wisdom and authority–even when it’s hard to swallow–we will live in peace and unity, and we will be happy. We don’t need to know all the answers. We just need to know and trust that God does.
Heavenly Father, Your loving kindness is greater than life. Everything is in Your hands, including me, and I know You love me more than anyone could. Help me to follow Your Word without question and leave the details to You, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Have a victorious day in the Lord!
