I’d love to say that I always have great amounts of inner peace and that I never stumble as I walk boldly in faith.
The problem is that I can’t.
I have times occasionally when my level of confidence in my effectiveness for God is less than it should be.
I have times when I lean too much on my own understanding and not enough on God’s perfect plan and Word.
We both know how that kind of self-reliance usually turns out.
Thank God that His standard for our performance is not the same standard that He holds to Himself.
God never lets us down.
To those leaning on Him and not their own understanding, there is a solid, purposeful path revealed and a strong right arm to hold us up (Proverbs 3:5-6).
We’d both do well today to study and re-study a verse from today’s reading in the One-Year Bible:
“Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble.” (Psalm 119:165)
Want great peace? Want to never stumble in faith?
Fall in love with God’s Word.
After all, in many ways, it is a love letter to you that doubles as a perfect road map.
God will love it.
And you will love God more.
It’s a path guaranteed to give you more peace.
As always, I love you
