This is Odie today. I hope you are doing fine. I am doing well. It is time for a moment of encouragement.
I woke up recently thinking of Psalm 37:25. This is what the verse says.
I opened my Bible app to read Psalms 37:25 and I read the previous verses. My attention was drawn to three verses that night. These verses reminded me of a few things and gave me much food for thought. Here are a few of the thoughts rolling over in my heart and mind.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.
25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
1. I can not grow slack in my walk with God.
I have to always stand guard! It is easy to grow content in my surroundings. The current events can distract me from my main goal. I do not want to lose my focus, of living a life pleasing to God.
2. Wining my Christian race is possible.
Life has its heartaches and trials, but I can succeed in my race. My commitment to victory is renewed. I rest in the hope and promise that God is taking care of me. Also, I must walk, my Christian walk, according to His plan. Living in God's will gives me purpose and joy.
He will be with me through good and bad. Sometimes I have to remind myself that God is in control! Honestly, it is a relief knowing that I do not have to handle life on my own. I am thankful for the word of God that helps me survive life. This very moment God is working in our lives.
