Psalm 19

I have not been doing my daily blog while we get my new office ready, but this verse really spoke to me today so I thought I would at least post it. God talks to us all the time in so many ways--are we listening today?

Psalm 19

      1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
         the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
      2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
         night after night they reveal knowledge.
      3 They have no speech, they use no words;
         no sound is heard from them.

The New International Version. 2011 (Ps 19:1–3). Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan.

Proverbs 12

After not writing for a week I feel so much better so I am back at it. Today's thought is not long, but it is powerful! It is from Proverbs 12.

      2 Good people obtain favor from the LORD,
         but he condemns those who devise wicked schemes.

When the Bible says, we gain "favor" it is an absolute truth! Favor, means God especially blesses, loves, and cares for those who serve him. Does it mean financial blessings? It can, but "favor" also means God loves us so much that he blesses us in the ways that best bless us and our children. Sometimes, that even means tough periods. Further, we can never forget the importance of the "big picture"--heaven is the ultimate favor! Still, I have learned that everyday I get to enjoy God's blessings in a supernatural way and I really do see his favor over and over.

Today, choose to serve the Lord because you love him, but also remember as you serve him he loves you and you are a child he loves to pour his favor on!
