Three Suggestions To Live By
“The fear of the LORD prolongs days, But the years of the wicked will be shortened. The hope of the righteous will be gladness, But the expectation of the wicked will perish. The way of the LORD is strength for the upright, But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity.” Proverbs 10:27-29, NKJV
Found in this scripture are three powerful suggestions that offer three great promises to those who follow and practice those three suggestions.
Fear Of The Lord.
Hope In The Lord.
Way Of The Lord.
The Fear Of The Lord is a fearful respect for the power and authority of the Lord. Those who live with that fearful respect of and toward the Lord will be blessed with prolonged days of life.
The Hope In The Lord is to place our hope in the Lord and not the things in and of this world. The things of this world can vanish in a storm, a fire, by thief, or some other calamity. Hope in the Lord puts our hope in the creator of the universe in whose hand we and all of our possessions rest.
The Way Of The Lord is to choose the way of the Lord and not the ways of the world. There is a huge difference between the two and the choice of which we will follow will either bring strength or destruction to our lives.
Accept these suggestions as wisdom from God who loves you can cares for you and wants the very best for you. Here are three suggestions He has for us all. Ours now is to choose to follow or reject.
