I really like this because when we get angry we think we can do something that will really matter. The fact is we just keep stirring up the pot and making whatever was done last longer. I always say God handling of an ungodly person is much worse than I can ever do. I pray that their hearts are changed, and then they will be able to understand how to be a light. This is hard to understand sometimes but we need to not worry when we don’t understand something and just trust the Lord and see what understanding we get each day.
Verse 24 says, “The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?”
It doesn’t say never ask for understanding, just be grateful with what you get each day. We must fully surrender ourselves to the Lord forgetting self at all and living to honor Him. It seems so easy but that’s where the work comes in. We must continue to learn and give more each day. When we do we will be able to be joyful and live each day in peace with our eyes focused on heaven and eternal life.
Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Amen
