This verse came to me as I looked for the word firm. Sometimes we just need a firm foundation. What is that foundation? 2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is worthy of trust; he will make you firm and guard you from the Evil One. (CJB) Only the LORD is worthy of our trust. When we truly BELIEVE that HE is taking care of us, and we FULLY put our TRUST in HIM, than we find a firm foundation. When we trust Him to PROVIDE for us, we will find that we are guarded from the evil one.
God is really speaking to me about prayer. Today’s verse is simple… 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray regularly. (CJB) Two words, but important ones. PRAY! How often? Regularly! If you look at the verses around it, GIVE THANKS and BE JOYFUL! Hmmmm…. I am sensing a theme. Could it get repetitive? Yes… Should it? NO! Obviously God has SOMETHING He wants us to do, and that is PRAY. As we pray we LISTEN! Short. Simple. Powerful. Love and blessings, Rose #Thessalonians #Pray #NoStop #Adon
I was thinking of the word, “trust” today and then when I saw this verse I decided to use it. Why???? The word trust isn’t even in it! I Thessalonians 5:15 See that no one repays evil for evil; on the contrary, always try to do good to each other, indeed, to everyone. (CJB) So often we want to just repay what someone “deserves.” Or what we think they deserve… Obviously this verse tells us that we are to “always do good to each other.” This is something I try to teach my child
