“Consider the blameless, observe the upright; there is a (prosperous) future for the man of peace.” (Ps. 37:37).
You have no choice where our past is concerned, it is gone. You have no choice about your heritage, you were born without a vote in the decision. You, however, have a choice about your future. God has given you a sure plan for a prosperous future. Your choices daily are the bridge towards your future.
God has a prosperous future for His believers:
1) Be blameless. The choice is yours. It is not possible for you to be blameless by yourself but since it is a requirement, God has provided for you the gift of His righteousness. “God made him who had no sin (Jesus) to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Cor. 5:21). Believe in the LORD Jesus Christ and you will be saved, blameless.
2) Be upright in character. The choice is yours. You can create values and shape your character for a prosperous life, “Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn out her seven pillars.” (Prov. 9:1). Jesus is the greatest role mode for upright character and success. He grew strategically for a determined end, “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” (Luke 2:52). Like Jesus we are intentionally growing in seven CHAYIL Pillars for a holistic prosperous life: worship, wisdom, power, honor, favor, wealth, influence. Let us each day nurture a good character by the choices we make until a good character becomes our nature.
3) Choose peace. Peace is a gift from Jesus to you, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27). Choose to live in peace, be at peace with others, and guard your heart. Let Christ rule in your heart as you create and rule your world.
My heart is an altar for Jesus Christ to rule, guard, and prosper with His peace.
