A HUGE reminder to not be “in the flesh” with situations which won’t last. Don’t get pulled in and trade wisdom for sin…
I love this truth: I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy. Surely the righteous will praise your name, and the upright will live in your presence. Psalm 140
Any scene where the “be still” was and is MORE powerful than the “be bothered” or “be put off” means he has better things in how to use our time than us to get involved in sweating the small stuff that could pull us off my game. I’ve seen the Lord rally my trials so often. It is best for us to buckle down His armor a little tighter around our hearts. I remember that life can be like the weather, just wait and it will change.
When we take the high road, that the Lord takes us on, it’s best we remain the graceful driver that He taught us to be on the Way. And when the roads are blocked, there’s almost always a side diversion that He needed us on. We don’t see it until we see it.
I love this part of Psalm 141, totally appropriate!!!! I call to you, Lord, come quickly to me; hear me when I call to you. May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.
Jesus said “Feed my sheep”. He didn’t say “argue with the other sheep”, that leads to less time for feeding… yup!
TAKE THE HIGH ROAD!
