THE SIMPLE TRUTH !!!

PSALM 19: 7-9, ” The Law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; The statues of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; ………………..I have found that wisdom truly is the principle thing, and because I desire to please God, I seek after it with all my heart, the book of  proverbs reveals clearly how we can go about living lifestyles that are pleasing to God. The first thing one should do is to  have a mind and attitude that is focused on Jesus, therefore truth will flow into your heart and settle there. Where there is truth God abides, where the truth of God abide ‘s  you will allway’s fine a reverent obedience to the Lord, hence  resulting in what should be known as Holy fear, it resonate’s such a love and respect for our Lord, that you find it extremely difficult to live in anything outside of Godliness,.  I like to refer to 1 Cor. 13.11, where we read,” When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things” (KJV). So likewise we are children for a short time, then comes manhood and womanhood, ” a time to wise up” and follow all that is clean and holy, yes there have been times , when I made terrible choice’s , made some stupid mistakes, some were all my fault and some I could blame on other partie’s ,situation’s , and circumstances, but ultimately, after all is said and done, the responsibility is mine. The blame I shall leave in God’s hand, Psalm 8 say”s the commandments of  the lord are pure, Enlightening the eyes; and verse 11 say’s ; and in keeping them there is great reward. God’s way equals integrity, trustworthiness , protection, and refuge. I don’t know about you today” but I choose the simple truth, and you can too. Love you in Christ

This is another great word, Pastor Angela. There is so much to be said about the word of God. Wow, it’s like where do I begin? I love what Psalm 119: 9 says, ” Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.” This is true for anyone, young or old. The word really does work if we allow it to. Here’s one of my favorite scriptures that immediately came to mind when I read this week’s nugget:
Psalm 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Yes, this is the wisdom I seek and apply to my life, by the grace of God. Thank you Lord.
