Today's Inspiration: We were created to be fruitful and multiply and not for disaster. Disaster comes to us only when we are negligent for everything we do are subject to the law of spiritual forces of obedience or rebellion. Man's fall starts with disobedience in Adam. The Lord detests man of perverse heart but He delights in those who are blameless. Proverbs 11:20.
The global crisis today is due to man's negligence of God's law and statutes. Indeed reckless words pierce like a sword. Only tongue that speaks well of others promotes healing. Proverbs 12:18
Using God's word to the right people at the right time is important. Job's friends were unable to discern God's purposes on Job and thought their advice were right before God's eyes but it turned out otherwise. Tables turned and Job was commanded by God to pray for his friends instead. How many times have we experienced such a situation where our counsel boomerangs? Job knows about God's purpose in dealing with men but could not discern what the dealings were all about until God opened his eyes to the secrets of His heart. You may think you are doing all the right things but only God can discern the heart of men for His eyes go to and fro searching out their innermost being. Proverbs 20.27. Let's get back to hearing distinctly His wise counsel. God be praised.
Prayer: Make me an instrument of praise always and grant me a discerning heart that my counsel of others become Your wise counsel. My hope is in Your glory and Hope shall not disappoint us in Jesus name amen.
