He is Faithful to Heal You

Wounds take time to heal, sometimes it’s a few days or weeks, sometimes it could be years. The One who calls us His own is faithful and He can and will certainly do it, just like He will cause us to walk in His path where He calls us.

1Thessalonians 5:24, “He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.”

Wisdom and Humility Facing an Enemy

Judges 11:12b

“‘What do you have against me, that you have come to me to fight against my land?'”

When the enemy (Ammonite king) came to attack the Israelites, Jephthah the leader of Gilead didn’t respond in anger and attack back. Instead, he moved towards the enemy, seeking out communication by asking the Ammonite king this question, to understand him first. This takes great humility and is true wisdom when we face an attack from someone.

The Lord teaches us through Proverbs 16:32, that “Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.” Being patient with self-control is not weak or stupid, nor is it being a doormat. It’s a beautiful fruit of the Holy Spirit working in us, to put faith and trust in God, and to show kindness and love when we are challenged.

May God grant us wisdom and humility with patience and self-control when we face difficult and challenging situations that tempt us to sin. May He help us to put faith and trust in Him, knowing that He is sovereign in all our circumstances, and He loves us and protects us.
