This is a beautiful image of a person of faith who lives out what they believe. God’s ways are awesome and high. For the one who surrenders to him, there will be peace and a certain measure of prosperity.
It is impossible to escape completely the fact of the fallenness of the earth we live on in the present age, but things are made infinitely better by obedience and love for God and the ways of his Kingdom. A reading of the New Testament will prove that there may be suffering in the path of a faithful Christian. Even Christ himself suffered according to God’s will, but the instruction and encouragement in Scripture that promised prosperity to those who trust God enough to live according to his ways cannot and should not be disregarded.
The one who chooses to keep their mind on God, will continue experience His life in their lives. When we constantly meditate on God’s word, and we communicate with Him daily, it will be evident in our lives. We will find ourselves constantly finding peace and joy, when others are in distress. By staying in the path God has set for us, we are able to access the best He has for us.
And we pray:
Dear God, I thank You that as I focus on You daily, I get to see more of Your very best in my life. I ask that You will help me stay on this path, Lord. May I never stray or seek worldly idols. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
