God is always right!
Have an awesome super blessed weekend readers 😊😃!
Meditating on scripture is a great way to discern what God desires of man. Read the passage and ask the Holy Spirit to help you dig deeper in to what God wants us to understand.(scripture follows)
Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
Psalms 127:1-2 KJV
Good morning readers! Wow this journey is becoming really interesting I must add. Reading through psalms and proverbs have opened up so many important categories to life. Today in this proverb, The depth of why a man should avoid an adulterous woman comes deeper in to play. Read on and enjoy! (scripture follows)
My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words. For at the window of my house I looked through my casement, And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding, Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house, In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night: And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.) So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows. Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee. I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt. I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey: He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed. With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life. Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
Proverbs 7:1-27 KJV
As I share this scripture, it gives me great pleasure to have completed my journey of fasting from the wrong words. I encourage you brethren, to please ask God to keep the doorway of your lips. And help you to know when your saying something that cuts down, or slanders someone else. Pray that God would remove all sarcasm, and hurtful judgments from your lips today, and everyday here after. Let us pray…
Dear Lord I know I have hurt someone deeply with my words at least once in my lifetime. Show me today and everyday how to build up, and not cut down others with my words. Allow me the grace to know what to say and how to say it, that it won’t hurt those around me. Lord I pray and repent of the sin of a froward mouth. Please Guide me to present myself more like you. As I come in contact with your precious children, also I ask God that you would heal me of any hurt, pain or unforgiving mindsets I may have for those whom I feel have cut me down with their words as well. And it is in Jesus’s name I pray. Amen! Thank you all for journeying with me…. (scripture follows)
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Psalms 139:23-24 KJV
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
Psalms 126:5 KJV
As I have read through these scripture passages in psalms and proverbs, I find that it’s very clear that God wants man to know exactly how he feels about sin. And that judgment, punishment or chastening is a very big part of keeping man from destroying himself. See without the chastening of the Lord, man would go about just doing whatever he pleases. Whether it be of good or bad. Read with me… (scripture follows)
For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life. Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned? So he that goeth in to his neighbour’s wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent. Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house. But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul. A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away. For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance. He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
Proverbs 6:23-35 KJV
Good morning readers let us fast from saying the wrong things today. Let not another day go by with our hearts engaged in any conversation that is not edifying to the body of Christ. (scripture follows)…
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Ephesians 4:29 KJV
