A blessing is promised for those who live out His Word.
Have you ever heard of hindsight? We sometimes learn our life lessons by hindsight; learning from our past choices.
That used to be the only way I seemed to “get it”, by attending the school of hard knocks. Then, more than 25 years ago, I started studying scripture.
The way I was taught allowed God to do the real teaching. It let Jesus help me to see what I could not see before and the Holy Spirit help me make the changes I needed to make in my life. I needed His help; I could not do it on my own.
As I learned to follow the Word of God and to seek God in all that I do, I moved out of the school of hard knocks and into a life of foresight. Making choices became easier because I was no longer reactive to people and life’s challenges.
I have learned to live out God’s Word in my actions, which makes my life peaceful and without stress. It doesn’t stop challenges in life from happening, it just affects how I will respond. Having peace in my life is a great blessing!
Ask yourself: Am I blessed or stressed?
May the blessings flow,
