Scriptures: Proverbs 3:1-2 1My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; 2For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. (NKJV)
Nugget: In reading these scriptures, “length of days” & “peace” stood out for me. These stood out for me because they are connected to knowing God’s word & keeping them in my heart. We can go through so many things & experiences, but everything is connected to God & His word. What a reminder for me to set aside time with God each day to stay in His word.
Don’t let life & challenges beat you down; we have a source of strength that can get us through anything: God. We must take the time to develop our relationships with Him, while growing in Him & His word.
Let’s aim to obtain the “length of days” & “peace” that come from Him & Him alone.
Quote: “So long as we are occupied with any other object than God Himself, there will be neither rest for the heart nor peace for the mind. But when we receive all that enters our lives as from His hand, then, no matter what may be our circumstances or surroundings--whether in a hovel or prison-dungeon, or at a martyr's stake--we shall be enabled to say, "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places" (Ps. 16:6). But that is the language of faith, not of sight nor of sense.” -A.W. Pink
