Whatever is true…think on these things.


Phil 4: 4-9

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”

I asked a very trusted friend how she deals with bullies and this is what she gave me. A memory verse. I’ll be honest, I was a little perplexed. I was looking for something that would put my “problem” in it’s proper place.

In other words, I wanted to convince my problem that I was right and she was wrong, and make her go away and well… I learned that I am my problem and other people’s actions and opinions are God’s problem.

I cannot control others, but I can control my response. My assignment for today is to praise God and rejoice in Him.

Alrighty then..

  1. The reason I love my own trusted friends is because of the different slant they give when responding to my inquires of them. Sometimes we are so focused on what we assume is going to be their line of thinking, which corresponds to our own, and BOOM…G-d’s wisdom shoots out of them like a flaming arrow hitting us right in the heart. I love today’s RH message. Thank you and G-d Bless You and all who read it.
