He is always your best Place to be. So go to Him and tell Him how much you care. Now let’s go to:
Psalms 17:4 “Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept [me from] the paths of the destroyer.”
concerning (Strong’s 5921) above, over, upon or against;
works (Strong’s 6468) work, recompense, reward or wages;
men (Strong’s 119) ruddy, flush in face, be dyed or made red; (Strong’s 120) ruddy human being;
word (Strong’s 1697) word, matter (as spoken of), thing or cause; (from Strong’s 1696) to arrange, speak, command or work;
lips (Strong’s 8193) lip, language or words;
kept (Strong’s 8104) to hedge about, guard, protect or attend to;
paths (Strong’s 734) a well trodden road, manner, troop or caravan (travel across the desert); (from Strong’s 732) to travel or go wayfaring (on foot) man;
destroyer (Strong’s 6530) violent, tyrant, destroyer or robber; (from Strong’s 6555) to break out, breach, break away, scatter (as seeds) or come abroad.
When you need something answered, especially if it is regarding the Word, go directly to the Word and ask Him for help with it. There is nothing more simple and straightforward than the Word when you have eyes to see. Ask dear God to keep you into it by disciplining yourself just a little bit each day in it so you are continually drinking of His Water and Truth in the Word. Keep your path going through this desert of life easier by drinking that water and staying away from those things that pull you away from the Word and the ways of dear God.
1 Cor 10:10 “Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.”
destroyed (Strong’s 622) to destroy fully, perish or lose, die or perish;
destroyer (Strong’s 3444) a ruiner, venomous serpent or destroyer; (from Strong’s 3637) to destroy, ruin, death, punishment or destruction.
There is only one that is condemned to death and that is Satan, the destroyer or the devil. So know that by through the Son you have overcome death through Him. Come clean with dear God by asking Him to cleanse you of anything negative or that pulls you away from progressing more into who He wants you to be. Talk with Him about it. Remember to praise dear God and really mean it and tell Him how grateful you are for dear ones, especially your family. There are no other people in this world that you can share with like them and they are so special. Also, those dear friends that are like family to you that He has given you to help you out along your journey. Give back that love and help those that may not have friends to talk to and be there for them.
Finally, HE is always your best Place to be. God’s House is with you wherever you go if you choose to dwell with Him in it. You are invited, but it is up to you to have that joy right now in this moment. Choose love and choose joy and you are choosing Him. He loves you so very much.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,
at Your service
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
