Daily Encouragement –
What’s your opinion? What do you think? How much do you value yourself over Me and My word?
Everyone has a thought or opinion about serious ( and even non-serious) matters, and most of the time you never have to ask for them. Pride and selfishness will raise their ugly heads and let you know what they think about whatever it is rather quickly. The hard part is learning to listen and trust Me over these two demons! Pride makes you think your way is the best no matter what it may be. Selfishness causes you to desire whatever is best or looks best to you.
Cut these off at the roots and come to Me with humility. My ways are higher than your ways! Come to Me with trust knowing that I have your eternally best interests concerning all things.
Come to Me! Trust Me! Follow Me! Love Me in all you do! This journey is worth it, and it will take a lifetime to complete. I love you My child!!!
Jeremiah 43:2-4 “…all the proud men spoke, saying to Jeremiah, “You speak falsely! The Lord our God has not sent you to say, ‘Do not go to Egypt to dwell there.’ 3 But Baruch the son of Neriah has set you against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they may put us to death or carry us away captive to Babylon.” 4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, all the captains of the forces, and all the people would not obey the voice of the Lord…”
