A person finds joy in giving an apt reply— and how good is a timely word!
A timely word from the Lord is so very important. On a daily basis we face many challenges as believers and a timely word of encouragement from either God’s word or a fellow believers is vital for our walk with the Lord. Many times when we become discouraged our eyes get taken off Jesus and placed on our circumstances. We begin to focus on the things we face and as a result we feel overwhelmed.
But when our eyes are fixed upon Jesus and our minds are fixed upon the promises and the truth of God’s word we will be filled with God’s perfect peace. What we have with the Lord is a living relationship. It is not a one time decisions, but a daily journey in which we walk with Jesus every step of the way. When we abide in the Lord He will strengthen us and give us the wisdom we need. Where we often fail is when we fail to abide and as a result we walk in defeat. We are called to walk in victory and freedom but this only happens as we abide daily in the Lord.
