Great reminder from Jesse —
2 Chronicles 1:10-12
10 Give me the wisdom and knowledge to lead them properly, for who could possibly govern this great people of yours?”
11 God said to Solomon, “Because your greatest desire is to help your people, and you did not ask for wealth, riches, fame, or even the death of your enemies or a long life, but rather you asked for wisdom and knowledge to properly govern my people—12 I will certainly give you the wisdom and knowledge you requested. But I will also give you wealth, riches, and fame such as no other king has had before you or will ever have in the future!”
41 But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”
2 Samuel 22:31-32
31 “God’s way is perfect.
All the Lord’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
32 For who is God except the Lord?
Who but our God is a solid rock?
Just had these verses come to me yesterday morning as I was stressing and becoming anxious sometimes I realize that I am PURSUING the wrong thing and not staying focused on what God CALLED us to focus on. So as I was feeling that all of my effort was not equalling success God gave me these scriputers to say JESSE stay focused on the things I have told you to focus on everything else will be added and I will gift you as no other man/women has ever been gifted.
GOD is our ROCK and a STRONG shield for those to look to him for protection.
