Proverbs 3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: 2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and leannot unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. 9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: 10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
Solomon says, in all we do don’t forget Gods law. In all we do don’t forget to give God the glory. That’s the way to be successful in anything you go at is to put God first in everything.
It's not only the key to being successful as an individual. But it’s the ingredient in being a successful company, family, and country.
We are seeing proof of that today in our country, when we take prayer from our children in our schools and wonder why kids are killing other kids. Letting perverted men marry other perverted men and letting perverted women marry other perverted women. When we allow unborn babies to be killed by the millions and say it’s the law of the land, it's OK.
It's not OK its murder!!
God is taking away Americas blessings one by one because of our disobediences and turning our backs on Him.
We were once the most productive, most feared, most envied of all the countries in the world because our forefathers took a stand for, In God We Trust before a decision was made in our congress or senate in the early days of America.
They ask God to bless it. They ask for guidance from our living God. The only one who can give blessing or take them away. The true and living God of Abraham,Isaacs and Jacob.
Though things seem very dark for our country…it's never too late to turn to God…it's never too late for a country or an individual that will turn to Him.
Verse 3 and 4 of Proverbs chapter 3 says...3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man
Again these verses I believe are meant for an individual or a nation. As a nation it seems we had all the answers.
Sometimes as individual we think we know it all but, we forget to trust in the Lord with what?....with all our heart.
We say a fast little prayer and say …well I’m trusting you Lord and then we run and do it our way and most of the time and when we don’t wait on the Lord and trust Him whole heartily for our life ..woops…we start all over again and wonder what happen.
As a Nation we let our scientists direct us in what we should eat and how we should live and most of the time they don’t know the outcome themselves.
Our nation is in a mess and why? Because we don’t acknowledge Him in all our American ways. You know why history repeats itself?...because we never learnby our mistakes.
Do you know what life has in store for you? Neither do I. Life has plenty of uncertainties for us all but, God has one thing that is certain. He has the promise of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord. If you have trusted Him for salvation then you can trust Him with all uncertainties that life has and He will always be there with you. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.Proverbs 3:6
