“For he who finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the LORD” (Proverbs 8:35 NASB).
Have you found Him?
Have you found The One who gives Life?
Have you found He who gives you favor all your life?
Have you discovered that with Him, you are never alone?
Have you lived the abundant Life He promises to all who receive Him into their lives?
Have you seen Him operating in the lives of others on a regular basis?
Have you felt His love towards like no other love?
Have you accepted Him as your Lord and Savior?
Have has your name been written in the Book of Life?
Have you acknowledged that favor on your life with others because of Him?
Well, have you?
The questions could go on and on, but there is only one response that He is seeking. “Yes, I have…” The promises of The Lord are always, Yes and Amen, but there are some who are not even aware of His promises; the promises of Life Abundantly for those who believe and receive and the promise of death for those who don’t.
We must always remember all of His promises are true–and the death that occurs, occurs spiritually, before it results in a natural death. Look around you and then look into His Word. From beginning to end–we have a choice to make–choosing life or death. I choose life and His Favor with others.
The very next verse advises us as to what happens to those who sin against God and it is their choice–not His.
Seek Him, while you yet have opportunity to do so. Repent and receive His unmerited favor–with Him and with others. Love as He loves and enjoy the abundant life He has waiting–just for you.
Father, in the name of Jesus, help us gain greater insight into Your Word so we never do anything that will displease You. Help us to understand that we do not have to cave to the dictates of flesh, but can have the abundant life You promise when we obey You. Bring us into a closer relationship with You so we will understand “relationship trumps religion.”
