God’s Word – The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests the heart.  Proverbs 17:3

Proverbs 17  – The Lord test the Heart…

Heavenly Father,

You reign, the earth will be glad; and  the distant shores rejoice. Clouds and thick darkness surround you; righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Fire goes before you and consumes your foes on every side. Your lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles. Thank you for the forgiveness of our sins.  Thank you for the gift of Jesus. May the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart be acceptable; you are our rock and redeemer.  May we love with actions as well as words. We forgive as you have forgiven us. Your word teaches your daughters, starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; we will be wise and drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. Your word states; acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent— you LORD detests them both. Your word teaches us;   Of what use is money in the hand of a fool, since he has no desire to get wisdom? We will be that faithful friend that loves at all times,  and a brother/sister is born for adversity. Thank you for protection over our lives…Thank you for your word of truth that fills each of our hearts with your wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
