There will always be trouble and temptation around us, as we do not live in a perfect world. But there are some points in this scripture that can help us to live as God desires us to live. Be a person who:
With all that is going on in the world today, and the way people are acting and responding, these are all good thoughts for us.
Lord, help me to be one of the people who do these things, and with a good heart. I want to be able to live as You desire. AMEN
Love the Lord, all you who belong to him. All you who put your hope in the Lord be strong and brave. Psalm 31
Who Can Live
13 You people in faraway lands, hear what I have done. You people who are near me, learn about my power. 14 The sinners in Jerusalem are afraid; those who are separated from God shake with fear. They say, “Can any of us live through this fire that destroys? Who can live near this fire that burns on and on?” 15 A person who does what is right and speaks what is right, who refuses to take money unfairly, who refuses to take money to hurt others, who does not listen to plans of murder, who refuses to think about evil— 16 this is the kind of person who will be safe. He will be protected as he would be in a high, walled city. He will always have bread, and he will not run out of water. 17 Your eyes will see the king in his beauty. You will see the land that stretches far away. 18 You will think about the terror of the past: “Where is that officer? Where is the one who collected the taxes? Where is the officer in charge of our defense towers?” 19 No longer will you see those proud people from other countries, whose strange language you couldn’t understand. (Isaiah 33:13-19 NCV)
