The Way of The Lord
(Read Proverbs 10)
The way of the Lord is strength for the upright. But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity. The righteous will never be removed. But the wicked will not inhabit the earth. -Proverbs 10:29,30
The term “The way of the Lord,” is a reference to God’s way of doing things. This entire book is about learning to do things God’s way. God’s Word is God’s will documented. God has ensured that we have access to all his precious promises by giving us the 66 books full of wisdom. In the verses above what we, as believers, see as a promise, an unbeliever might see as a problem.
These verses are encouragement to me (because I am doing things God’s way) but they may be a discouragement to someone else (who has chosen to live their lives without God). Solomon tells us that “The way of the Lord” is literally a refuge for the blameless.
When you know you are living right, you will be able to stand before God with the confidence of knowing that you are at peace with Him. When you know He can search your heart and find His Word there, you can enter every day with boldness. It simply means you know who you are and you know whose you are.
Read God’s Word and fully expect His promises to be manifested in your life!
Believe Him to be your rock! Believe Him to be your strong tower! He is your deliverer. He is your protection, your shield, and a hedge that no enemy can penetrate! Believe and let your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fears! When your faith is as it should be, when you are focused on God instead of your situation you can walk in a bold confidence and with that type of confidence, what do you have to be afraid of?
God doesn’t just promise us outward protection, but He also promises us inner peace. When you walk with God you believe that He will give you a sound mind, a well of everlasting joy, and a peace that cannot be shaken. His peace enables you to enter every day with a supernatural rest in your spirit. Grasp the fact that I am grasping as Jeff Taylor put it. THE BLESSINGS OF ABRAHAM ARE ALREADY UPON YOU! Accept what God has already done and receive what He has already given!
Receive an eternal source of joy and peace from the promises of God. Have full confidence in who and whose you are as you enter everyday. Share God’s goodness with the lost and seek to do so IN LOVE. Allow God’s love in you to draw someone to Him.
The way of the Lord is God’s best for our Lives!
Father God, thank You for Your promises. I know who I am and whose I am! I put my confidence in You and in Your Word. I am fully persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate me from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus my Lord. I stand on your truth and I am determined to share that love with those you bring my way. In Jesus’ name. Amen!
