May your heart keep Jehovah’s commandments. May they give you long life, good years and peace. May you be diligent to keep mercy and truth near you. Fasten them around your neck so that you are continually reminded of them and so they stay close and ready to apply. May you find favor and much success in the sight of God and people. (Prov.3:1-4)
I pray you find wisdom and may you find long life in her right hand and riches and honor in her left hand (Prov.3:16). May wisdom and discretion be life to your soul and adornment to your neck and may you walk in your way securely and your foot not stumble. May you not be afraid when you lie down. May the Lord be your confidence and keep your foot from being caught (vv.21-26)
With a purpose, a promise, we know what to get into agreement with and we know what to target with prayer. But it is possible to get into agreement with it in the prayer closet and get out of agreement with it in day-to-day struggles and conversations. It comes down to what we are focused on and what has caused us to be focused upon it. (Prov.3:5-6)
(Kathy Gabler)—Our faith and trust in God is our stand of agreement that opens the earth and the circumstances and the day and the moment to Him. Basically, Father told me to guard my attitude and my gratitude, and I learned the surest way to do that is to make trust a priority every time a contrary wind stings my face. My confidence in Him cannot be passive nor frail. It must be a deliberate daily decision. Thankfulness too is a daily deliberate decision. For me that decision starts when I remind my soul that He is good and He is in the moment.
May your home be fuller this year—full of the things you have needed, full of the evidences of victories and full of love and good, productive fellowship. “The curse of the Lord is in and on the house of the wicked, but He declares blessed (joyful and favored with blessings) the home of the just and consistently righteous.” (Prov.3:33, Amp)
