Read Proverbs 25 today!
All throughout Proverbs we see that God promises to bless those who fear Him, those who choose wisdom, and walk uprightly before Him. These are the kind of people that enjoy the abundant life that Jesus talked about in John 10:10 which says,
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Those who fear the Lord and choose wisdom are able to face each day with courage, no matter what the challenge. They are able to forget the past and look forward to the future with joy! Others around them recognize this work in them as a work of God! Can people see that work in you? Let’s take a look at some of the rewards of living faithfully for the Lord.
