I pray that you are all blessed on today. I speak blessings of peace and joy upon your life and may the Lord continue to be with you as you seek after Him.
(Proverbs 3:1-6), My son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commands; For the length of days and long life and peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around you neck, write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
When I was in the Girl Scouts, we would often go on camping trips. One of the things that we had to have in our packs was a compass. A compass will get you where to need to be whenever you are going in the wrong direction. If you do not have a compass, you will have to rely on your own knowledge of directions.
The first part of the scripture the Lord is admonishing us to remember what He has said in His word by reading the Word of God and keep in close to your heart. You cannot keep His commands in your heart if you don't know what the Word of God says. The length of your days does not necessary mean that you will live until you are ninety years old, but the Lord is saying that as long as you live His peace will be with you all the days of your life. Don not let mercy and truth forsake you; bind them in your heart means to always stay connected with the Lord by having the ability to remember scriptures (what the Word says) about your situation. Doing that will keep you in the favor of God and you will be highly esteemed. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding, acknowledge the Lord in everything that you do and He shall direct your paths. Meaning the Lord's understanding is far more than we could ever imagine, so don't try to understand why the Lord is working the way He is concerning your circumstances. Acknowledge Him, meaning pray daily making your request known to Him, praise and worship and He will be your compass giving directions for your life.
Woman of God, the Word of God (your bible) is God's compass. Read your bible everyday, study your bible everyday and you will not get lost but you will know which direction the Lord wants you to take. PRAISE THE LORD! AMEN!
