Scripture Graphics #95

So very grateful for new, day-by-day mercies for whatever the day holds!!

There are times in our lives where the walls crumble, when aspects of our lives are unruly, when we seem to lose control and things come in and out of our hearts and minds which do not please God. In essence, the walls need to be built back. And, like with every building project, it takes energy, time, and labor. We need tools such as prayer, God’s Word, praise, and hymns. We need diligence to capture every thought, turn humbly to God, seek His help, and obey Him. Without these materials and tools, the walls of our Spirit will stay broken down, bringing damage to us and others.

And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? - Luke 12:16-21

When we refuse to seek God and “lend back to Him,” God can take it away from us. There are so many points in this passage: honoring God with our first-fruits, seeking Him vs. leaning on our own understanding, living for Him vs. hoarding our time and profit to ourselves, and the power of God to over-ride our plans. Where, in this list, are we like the rich man?

What promises are you claiming today?

A promise of today, is to know and trust that God is my hope and strong tower, especially when times get tough.
Thank you for this reminder! It is good to remember the goodness of our Savior!
