Genesis 35:1-36:43; Matthew 12:1-21; Psalm 15:1-5; Proverbs 3:21-26
“My son, do not lose sight of these–keep sound wisdom and discretion and they will be life for your soul and adornment for your neck. Then you will walk on your way securely and your foot will not stumble.” Proverbs 3:21-23
King Solomon gave good advice to his son–‘keep your life focused on God and His Word–you can’t go wrong.’
He was right. God never leads down wrong paths. His words are sure. Life giving. Wise. Always.
Like Adam and Eve–and everyone since them–we take our eyes off of God and listen to other sources of wisdom–wisdom NOT from above. We listen to the world, our flesh, the angel of light (Satan). We take a path of temptation and end up falling–big time!
We sin. We fail. We cry out–Lord, help!
And He does!
He sets us upon our feet and bids us to keep our eyes on Him
Lord God, we thank and praise you for rescuing us when we lose sight of your truth–your wisdom–when we take our eyes off of Jesus. Thank you for restoring our balance and making our walk with you secure. Thank you for your promise to keep us from falling out of your sight. No one is beyond your grasp who looks to you. It’s true–in you, we can’t go wrong! Praise your Holy Name! Amen.
“He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart…he who does these things shall never be moved.” Psalm 15:2,5
