God’s Word – A man finds joy in giving an apt reply—  and how good is a timely word! Proverbs 15:21

Proverbs 15 Good Counsel: Brings Victory!

Heavenly Father,
The earth is yours LORD, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for you founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters. Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place?  Those who have clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false.  It is only through Christ we can stand in your holy place, it is only through the power of Christ in us we are righteous.  You word instructs us: Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.  Your daughters will seek counsel, by the power of your word and those who have wisdom through the power of the word written on their hearts.  Father we ask for your forgiveness for our transgressions and sins.  We desire to seek you for strength and lay all our battles on your throne so that Christ may intercede for us. Just as your word states; cast all your anxieties on Him because he cares for us.  Thank you for caring for us…Thank you for the gift of the living Christ that took on our shame.  Protect us from the evil one and let not our hearts not be drawn toward what is evil in your sight.  Show us your ways Lord, teach us your paths. Lead us in your truth.  You are the God of our salvation on you we wait all the day long.  Thank you Father for your provision in every area of our life.  Your word teaches us: A man finds joy in giving an apt reply— and how good is a timely word!  Let us be obedient children and give an apt reply along with your timely word.  May our words be few and your words be many.  The path of life leads upward for the wise to keep him from going down to the grave. Let us follow and keep our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith.  Leads us to rock that is higher than us. The LORD tears down the proud man’s house but he keeps the widow’s boundaries intact.  Thank you for keeping the widow’s home intact.  Thank you for keeping our home in tact.  Our desire is to seek your face, and seek for your strength and wait on your word.  We thank you for all the blessings you give.  In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
