Daily, I read the Proverb of the day of the month. God’s Word brings comfort. Proverbs 21, verse 2 reads, “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts.” I see this today in our political realm. The haters of our President must not understand even though they think they are right, they will answer to God. In God’s view, haters are the same as murderers – 1 John 3:15.
Proverbs 21: 3 lets us know that to obey the LORD is better than sacrifice. God’s truth wins in the end.
Proverbs 21:12 – “The righteous God wisely considers the house of the wicked, overthrowing the wicked for their wickedness.” Because God does not usually bring instant judgment now to the wicked, many think they can get by with their wickedness. God’s truth is all of us will stand before God for the choices we make in our life on earth. There is an afterlife for all.
People who are followers of God will inherit eternal life. (We must be born again of water and spirit as on the Day of Pentecost – Acts 2). People who choose to follow the god of this world, Satan, will suffer with him for eternity in the lake of fire. God does not put anyone into eternal suffering. Our choices in life will determine our eternal destination.
Proverbs 21:23 – “Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles.” Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Our words will either justify us or condemn us. We will give an account to God for every idle word we speak. God sees and hears everything – everything done in the secret will be revealed openly.
Proverbs 21:30 & 31 – “There is no wisdom or understanding or counsel against the LORD. The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but deliverance is of the LORD.” It does not matter what the wicked of heart plan to do, the LORD will win in the end! God magnifies His Word above His name.
When we devour God’s truth, we will stand strong for God’s truth at every level. I pray that every believer in God prays against the evil in this world on a daily basis. We must not be fearful of raising our voice for righteousness. God instructs us to pray for our leaders so we can live in peace.
Please become daily ‘feeders’ of God’s Word. It is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path! When we love and serve God, we (God and us) are in the majority because His truth will win in the end!
