Dailies ~ in His Word
February 2019
But wait there’s more!  Many of us have heard this quote a few hundred times… ”let everyone be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger…”But there is more to it than that, God shows us here how to be happy in all we do!

 So then, my brethren beloved, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for the wrath of a man the righteousness of God doth not work; wherefore having put aside all filthiness and superabundance of evil, in meekness be receiving the engrafted word, that is able to save your souls; and become ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves, because, if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, this one hath been like to a man viewing his natural face in a mirror,  for he did view himself, and hath gone away, and immediately he did forget of what kind he was;  and he who did look into the perfect law -- that of liberty, and did continue there, this one -- not a forgetful hearer becoming, but a doer of work -- this one shall be happy in his doing. John 1:19-26 YLT version

So then we are to be quick to hear things, or listen instead of speaking first, and then to wait before we get upset and remember that God wants to work in us with peacefulness and meekness. We need to be about speaking good words, not cursing or cussing, but thinking of good things when we get upset or angry. If we are really hearing the Word of God as we read it then we can be sure the words that come out of our mouth will be tempered in these things. Who do you think God wants you to look like, or sound like? God, Himself?  Or someone who has no idea who God is?  In order to be a doer of the work that God gives us we need to be in His Word to get the information He has put there for us to share. If we are putting in the right things then the right things will come out. To remember it we have to be in it regularly. Then we can be happy in all we do, when we have His Word in our lives.
Wow, all of that and more in that portion of scripture?  Look into the scriptures you hear portions of; look beyond the initial words and find out where they go from there or where they came from!
Heavenly Father, let these Dailies just be a taste of what goodness and wisdom is found in Your Word. Show us more, that we may know you more! In Jesus name, amen.
