Today's Inspiration: God stills the hunger of those He cherishes, and bestow their children with plenty and store up wealth for their children. Only in righteousness will you see His face. When you awake, you will be satisfied with seeing His likeness. What a mighty God we serve who is gracious and compassionate to all those who love Him! Psalm 17:14-15.
God brought you out of your mother's womb and made you trust in Him and from your mother's womb He has been your God. Psalm 22:9-10. You may wonder at the battles you are fighting and why God did not come to your aid. When you try to understand, you cannot fathom. Psalmist Asaph also cannot understand and envy the wicked who bears no problems but have their wealth increased until he enters the sanctuary of God. It is here that he received Revelations to understand his destiny. Psalm 73:17. Man cannot fathom the destiny God set in their hearts. One thing is certain. His words will endure forever. You cannot add anything or separate from it. God does all these that men will revere Him at all times. Ecclesiastes 3:14.
Pleasant words are like honeycomb that brings health to our bones. So do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God and before men. Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit as anger resides only in the lap of fools. Ecclesiastes 7:9. Have self control the fruit of the spirit and patience which is another great fruit of the spirit that helps you to overcome.
We are formed by God to be obedient and interdependent. Two things God says is not good for men and they are those who don't take heed of His word and those who strive for Independence. It is always God's ways that you rely on Him and be obedient to His word at all times and not to be alone. These were words He told in the presence of the angelic hosts when He created man. Hence He did not allow men to be independent, nether be alone but place us together in fellowship that we can work together in diversity to multiply in His kingdom. Obedience gives you the power to produce wealth and entitles you to eat the best of the land. Isaiah 1:19. God be praised.
