God’s Word: Psalms 119:17-24
God’s Attribute: Wise counsel
God’s Message to me:
How many empty promises I receive from humanity in desperate circumstances! If only I will deliver them they will follow Me always. But once I help them back up on their feet—they forget their promise and go about their merry way. The circumstances you find yourself in are often because of your own choosing. Other times they may be because of choices another made. Or, perhaps because your body malfunctions and you get ill. Many desperate circumstances would be avoided if you would take the wise counsel I provide in My Word.
My Word provides clear directions for living, nourishment for your soul, and wisdom to help you make good choices. Absorb this–I am present with you in the worst of desperate circumstances and eager to impart peace. No matter what path you are on My peace can nourish your soul till you are overflowing with thanksgiving. There is no night so dark but what the light of My joy can bring you complete satisfaction. You do not need to be “delivered” to a better life situation to have peace. I specialize in peace during the storm.
You can’t always choose your circumstances but you can always choose your attitude. Don’t let your circumstances drain your hope. Open your eyes to My miracle-wonders that surround you. Become absorbed in My wise counsel and rest in My arms of deliverance—yes, even during desperate circumstances—I am with you.
God’s Question for me:
Will you absorb yourself in My counsel rather than your troubles?
God’s Promise to me:
The commands in My Word do not restrict but nourish and give hope.
My Prayer to Emulate God’s Attributes: I Pledge:
My mind: To always focus on Your strength rather than my own.
My voice: To speak words that build and encourage others.
My heart: To absorb Your love and share it freely with others.
My body: To serve all others as though it were You I’m serving.
