It's good to keep in mind the sovereign goodness of God, and that He is in charge of all the realities that confront us, even in times like these.
Marie was spending time in prayer last night, and was led to these statements from Jeremiah 9:23-24 -
Thus says the LORD:
“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
24 But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the LORD.
Lovingkindness - God's covenant of love to act according to His own nature in relation to every person and situation.
Judgment - God's commitment to remove everything from our lives that hinders love.
Righteousness - God's perfect design that results in perfect satisfaction and fulfillment for all who submit to His will and His ways.
These Kingdom realities are the priorities of our God, as we become still before Him, submitting to His ways, we will come to peace and rest as He works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called to His purposes.
Blessings on you all - Gary Wiens
