God's Words For US
by Cecelia Lester
One of the many things we can praise God for is His Word-the Bible.
His word gives us strength we are down and direction when we are faced with issues that affect our lives.
“This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life” Deuteronomy 30:19
The above passage guided me through an exceedingly difficult period of my life.
“Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13 (NIV)
As I was studying a Sunday school lesson, I read those words. I had to reread them several times. They convicted me. I try to live by these words currently, so many years later.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”(NIV)
As a teenager, I first heard this passage in a Laity Day sermon at church. At that time, I really did not understand what the person meant. As I matured, I learned that the words are true. “Seek First.” Should be our motto as well as our goal in life.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7 (NIV)
I have learned that all we must do is ask God and He will listen. We can seek His guidance and He will lead us to where He wants us.
