Good morning brothers and sisters. Today is the day that the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it. Have you ever been in a conversation with someone and you were quick to respond? Oh me, plenty of times, more than I like to admit. I did it especially when I was a babe in Christ. I just wanted everyone to know Jesus like I did. I didn't mean to be pushy but I was. And to be honest, I wasn't taught to wait upon the Lord. Believe it or not. I was told go and tell the nations. So I did. But as I grew in Christ, I learned a few things. The most important was when to shut my mouth. And the second most important was when my mouth was shut- PRAY! He will give you the words. I learned scripture like this: Proverbs 14:29- He who is slow to wrath has great understanding. But he who is impulsive exalts folly. And yes impulsive in Christ can bring folly. Because we, ourselves, as new babes in Christ don't always know what to say. And I learn scripture like this: Proverbs 3:3-6: 3- Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. 4- And so find favor and high esteem in he sight of God and man. 5- Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; 6- In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. As I was growing in Christ, He had me a lot and I mean a lot in Proverbs. It is a wonderful place to start for God's discipline in your life. Those words rang true to me. I could read Proverbs over and over. When I don't understand or I have stepped out of line with God, Proverbs is my go to book. I can get back on track with the simple understanding. So if you ever find yourself in that place. Open Proverbs, it will help. Or if you are not in that place, open anyways, it will discipline you and grow your relationship with Jesus Christ. Have a blessed day! Rise up child of God, rise up!
