    OBEDIENCE

    My son, forget not my law: but let thine heart keep my commandments:
    For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
    PROVERBS 3:1-2

    It is easy to see the Bible as a book of "don'ts" rather than a book of "do's." The "Thou shalt nots" far exceed the "Thou shalts." This is not a way for God to control us, for there is nothing farther from His intention than that. But it is merely a show of His great love for us that He offers these instructions to us in order to make our lives better. Our God is a God or order and sense. He knows infinitely more than we can ever hope to, and He shares His knowledge with us to help us through our lives.

    If we can learn to be obedient to the will of God, we will find that life becomes a little easier to live, and a lot more fulfilling. Life ceases to be such a struggle, and it becomes a joy. God sent Christ to fight the battle for us. He has become the victor, our victor. To his disciples Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you." (John 14:27). He says the same to us. If we can learn to be more obedient to God, this peace and assurance will be ours throughout our entire lives.

    Dear Heavenly FAther, Help us that we might learn to rest in Your peace. Life can be so difficult, and we know that we cannot handle everything on our own. Be with us, guiding us, and helping us to follow Your commandments always. Amen and Amen.

    Blessings to all, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>

    Amen Judy. No truer words were ever spoken.
    This comes at such perfect time for me and
    things in my life. For me, Obedience and Faith
    in the Lord are so important. Bless you Judy.
