promise sixteen

12 Mar

Hello again, today I found another promise that I want to share with you! 

for the devious person is an abomination to the LORD, but the upright are in his confidence. The LORD’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous. Toward the scorners he is scornful, but to the humble he gives favor. 

(Proverbs 3:32-34) 

Well, as I see it, this is both a grave warning and a wonderful promise. So, if we are devious or cheat at everything we do, then we are an abomination in God’s sight, and to me that sounds pretty bad, but, if we upright then the Lord has “confidence” in us, and we will be given greater things to take care of, perhaps things such as a church or being a mentor to someone. And the same applies to the house of the wicked and dwelling of the righteous, if we are wicked in our hearts, and have not accepted Jesus Christ, then we are cursed by God! But, if we have accepted Jesus and are righteous, then we have God’s blessing, if we are scornful God will scorn us if we are humble we will have God’s favor, it’s a recurring theme, if we are mad at each other then that makes God unhappy, but if we show compassion to one another then God is happy with us, over and over again it shows us that if we are wicked God is unhappy, if we are righteous then God is happy. 

You are loved!

Joshua Cleveland.
