The Narrow Way

This morning I was reading Proverbs 15 as the scripture for my daily devotional time. There couldn’t have been a more appropriate choice. Obviously I didn’t make the choice. I just followed the directions of the devotional book that I use. In the past few days I have found myself in a difficult financial position. There are many reasons for this, most of them my fault, but I found myself worrying about what I can do about it and found no good answer. According to my book, Transformation The Servant’s Heart–A Life of Faith, anxiety is a sin, a destroyer of a good relationship with the Lord. Then why am I worrying? The solution, as stated in Philippians 4:6, 7 is to turn to Him in prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving. It works. I can trust Him for the solutions I need. In reading the Proverbs 15 I was reminded that I am guilty of hypocrisy because of my tendency to criticize others when I don’t agree with them or like their attitude. That too is an issue in my book. I need to love everyone sincerely. God is the judge and the one who disciplines those He loves, not me. I want to take  His discipline seriously and repent and have the mind jof Christ, the third subject in my book. Trust, love and humility; all of this is why I hope many will buy, read and study what Transformation talks about. I’m not alone in my troubles. In addition to these primary things, good sales of my book would solve my financial problem. Praise the Lord. He is so good.
