Jeremiah 16:16-18:23; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-5:3; Psalm 81:1-16; Proverbs 25:6-8
When you reduce it all down, every decision we make is one that will either honor God and draw us closer to Him or dishonor God and pull us away from Him. It is often easy for us to dwell in a gray area of uncertainty but when it comes to God, we are either all in or all out!
God says that if we put our trust (confidence) in mere humans, we are actually cursed! Think of cursed like positioned for destruction. If we build our lives on what people think and trying to please them, then we will be led to destruction. If we put our trust in God, then we are blessed, that is, positioned for promotion.
Choose today to walk according to God’s ways and honor Him because when you do it, you will be strategically positioned to prosper (do well) in life. God knows everything we don’t know. If we follow Him, we will never be led astray. Why follow someone who knows as much, if not less, than you? That will only lead to destruction. God’s way is best.
