God Will Fight for You

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 2:23         

When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.   It’s in our nature to want to protect ourselves when we are being attacked whether it’s by insults, criticism or lies. We want to fight back and retaliate with more of the same. We want to defend ourselves with our own arguments. But when Jesus was being insulted and suffering He did not retaliate. He put His trust in His Heavenly Father and He trusted in God’s will to be done. Put your trust in God and let Him be your defender, He will fight for you and He will judge your enemies accordingly.

Lord, Thank you for always being there for me and for being my strength when I am weak. Thank you for always fighting for me. Help me to be still as I trust in your will. I know that no matter what battles I face, you are with me. Amen

Overlook an Offense

Proverbs 19:11

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 19:11    

A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.          

Wise people are patient when others act offensively towards them. They don’t act or speak without thinking first. It doesn’t mean they accept what is contrary to their values and beliefs. It means they take time to evaluate the situation and act accordingly with patience and integrity. We’re living in a time where everyone is easily offended and are quick to anger, judge and criticize each other. We don’t necessarily have to agree with everyone, but we do need to be kind. Hurt people, hurt people, wise people try to understand. Instead of becoming angry show the offender God’s love and forgive them as God also forgives your offenses.
