But God’s Word is very clear when choices are to be made. There are times when one has no options: so it is “neither” this “nor” that. For example, “You shall have no other God except or before me!” It’s neither this god nor that god. For, “I am the Lord your God!”
There are also times when it is “both/and.” For example, we read, “Do this and you will live.” This alternative is a win/win approach. When we follow the rules of God, we will live and live well because we are assured of His blessings and the prosperity that comes from being obedient to His laws and commands.
Solomon said, “A man cannot be established through wickedness, but the righteous cannot be moved.” Stability in life comes from following God and being obedient to His Word. “In the beginning was the Word,” said John. God’s Word has been, is and always will be! This truth cannot be negotiated. The one who builds his life and ways on the Word of God will never have to question what is right or wrong, good or bad, honest or deceitful. It’s “either/or” either God’s way - the way of stability and security, or...
Prayer: May we have the courage, conviction and will to follow Your ways, Lord, and enjoy stability and blessings. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Proverbs 12:3 No one finds security by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved.
