Harness the Power

In Psalm 101, David promises to manage all his affairs both within his own family and as a public leader with integrity; making sure to discourage bad behavior but encouraging what is good for each individual and as a society.

In present times, we have a helper because of Christ. In Christian love, we can build our neighbor up. Each individual can search their heart for improvement so the future is one of excitement and optimism.

Doing things our way many times ends in disaster but doing things God’s way leads to success. As a Christian, we have access to God who gives the specific steps to follow, the power to begin, and the persistence to finish.

I was getting my hair cut one time and my barber was excited about his weekend hunting trip. Not many people get to hunt where he was going to hunting. It was on a ranch owned by a billionaire and only those with large sums of money could pay to hunt there. Well my barber is a friend of the billionaire’s son who has given him access to hunt there free. In a similar way, we can get excited about our future because we know God’s Son and we have access to His resources since the price has been paid.

Let us pray for our walk with God. This day with Him will be amazing because with Him there is a freedom that helps us live happier, give to others enthusiastically, and care for one another. Let us pray that we are good examples and lay out a clear path so others can follow.
