Psalm 31:7 (KJV)
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
BLESSED are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
THE MEEK are those who are gentle, humble, and unassuming, simple in faith and patient in the face of every difficulty. May we imitate the meekness of the Lord, who says, in Matthew 11:29 “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
Matt 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
The Bible says in James 4:8, “Draw nigh unto God, and he will draw nigh unto you!”
That is something for each us to ponder on…we all fall short of the Glory of God! (Romans 3:23)
There are “Zero” perfect people that live on this earth!!! 0 – notta = none…. Isaiah 53:6 says – All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. And the Only way to the Father…is through Jesus for the Bible says in John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
He’s calling, but how well do we listen? Usually we get to the end of our rope, before we call upon him. It shouldn’t be that way though. Don’t wait until tough times come, but if you do, He is YOUR HOPE! He is your peace, your joy, your anchor in this tough world. He said, “In the world you will have trouble, but fear not little flock, for I have overcome the world!” (John 16:33) I Praise God for these promises, In him, I have real life and one day – I will receive eternal life!
Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
Do you have a Bible? Read it!
Has any other book ever been described like it? Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
The words of the Bible have life. Life-giving words! Nouns with pulse rates. The Bible is to God what a surgical glove is to the surgeon. He reaches through them to touch deep within you. Haven’t you felt His touch? In a late, lonely hour you read, “I will never leave you. I will never forsake you.” The sentences comfort like a hand on your shoulder.
Don’t make a decision without sitting before God with open Bible, open heart, open ears. Let the words of Christ live in your heart and make you wise.

“Our Father, which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, forever and ever. Amen.” We ask and pray in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen. (KJV)
