This week as I blog through the alphabet, its time for the letter B and for me to prayerfully comtemplate the value of knowing how and who to “be”.
I read this morning that we must not be distressed by the revelation of self or the absence of feeling.
No matter how we feel it is important that we know that there are some things that are good for us to do. Places it is good for us to be.
Be faithful to God. It is a life that is so freeing as we no longer strive to be what we are not but seem to be all that God created us to be. His purpose and plan.
Be willing. Let us be willing to not be first. Let us be willing to serve another. Let us be willing to smile even when we don’t feel like it.
Be sensitive. To the spirit of God. All we need to be sensitive and still that we can hear his voice. I read this morning that the steps of a good man are ordered. And because of his great faith there is no fear. No anxiety.
Be at peace. Can we truly cast a cares at the Lord’s feet and then rest in him? While we are to bear our cross daily we must be understanding and peaceable as much as as possible as we wait on the Lord.
Be humble. God is all-powerful. He is merciful and forgiving. He is also just. Let us be willing to hear a correction. Let us be humble enough to know that we never know it all.
Be submissive. When we sense resistance within our self, to God’s will let us be willing to submit to his way. Putting aside Pride and our own desires and seeking after the Lords way. If we seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness all else shall follow.
Be silent. I think of how the word of God says we need to be quick to hear and slow to speak. Unfortunately I am anything but slow to speak. But there is great value annoying when to hold her tongue and as I read once somewhere, there is more power and a whisper then a shout.
Be still. I love this one most of all. To be still and wait on the Lord. It’s a powerful lesson for everyone of us. I read this and I think so many women within the pages of the Bible.
Let us truly Be.
