Listening To The Word

A Daily Devotional

By Randy Friesen

These will be Life for You

Today's Life Journal Bible readingProverbs 1-3; Romans 7

“My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck…the Lord will be your confidence.” Proverbs 3:21, 22, 26

Choices in life define us.
What will we do with our life and who will we journey with through life?
When we approach every decision with the humility that invites God’s wisdom and counsel into that decision, we make better decisions. Our motive becomes living for God’s glory, rather than our own. Ironically, the result of living this way is that we find peace, happiness, abundance and life – not by pursuing them as an end in themselves, but as the fruit of walking with God. God gives life and confidence. We were made to walk through life with him.

Lord God, you are my life. Thank you for your Spirit’s counsel and sound judgment. Thank you that I have your Word and a Counselor who is always with me.
