Quiet trust

Pro 10:14  Wise people are quiet and learn new things, but fools talk and bring trouble on themselves. 
Pro 10:15  Wealth protects the rich, but poverty destroys the poor. 
Pro 10:16  What good people do brings life, but wicked people produce only sin. (ERV)

It is the quiet trusting in the LORD that brings peace and answers to life's problems. Often we are talking when we should be praying. The fool, the one who says there is no God, often does not see clearly. He expresses his thoughts, concerns and anger, polluting the ears of the hearer. All people have similar problems and concerns, it is how we react to them that matters.

Pro 3:5  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 
Pro 3:6  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 
Pro 3:7  Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 

The people of God should seek to do good. Everything should be uplifting and life giving to a Spirit filled child of God. We sometimes grumble and complain, but we do not continue in this. We are not alone, we are not alone in Christ Jesus. We were bought with the price of His blood.. He died to overcome sin in our lives and he is risen to bring us into new life. He has overcome all for us. Can we not overcome our problems in him? Sure we can, with a thankful heart. Thank you Jesus for life. May I share life with others. You are the life and the light of this world. By your light we can see clearly.
