Wondrous Wisdom from the Word: December 2020


Hello everyone! I hope you all are well and in good spirit, and that you and your family had a Merry Christmas!

Well, here we are, less than 3 hours away from a new year! God has allowed us to survive and see the first year of a new decade pass. And what a year it's been!
Death, disease, sickness, racial turmoil, political turmoil, economic crisis, unemployment, fires, floods, hurricanes, a COVID-19 vaccine, and ANOTHER strand of the virus. But God!

I hope that you all will think about everything that was thrown at you this year. Think about all that's happened to you this year, and throughout your entire existence. Think how you thought it was tough, how you thought it was too much to bear, that you didn't think you'd make it. Now, stop and think about where you are right now....and give thanks to the One who brought you to where you are right now!

Here is the last WW for 2020.


Be in Control, Not OUT of Control
Proverbs 25:28 (KJV)

Merriam-Webster defines self-discipline as: correction or regulation of oneself for the sake of improvement. Self-discipline is really self-control. It is possessing and exercising willpower. So as Christians, self-control is the ability to exercise willpower as we seek to do the will of God and live a life reflective of Him. Our self-control allows us to make the right choices in life and walk the path God has laid for us.

A self-disciplined life brings us closer to God and puts us in position to hear from Him. It takes a genuine effort and consistency to live and maintain a self-disciplined life. It may be hard in the beginning, but if you are committed and focused, the results will be worthwhile. Without self-discipline, without exercising self-control, you ultimately stray from the path God has designed from you. Remember the words of the Scripture:

“He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls”
-Proverbs 25:28 (KJV)​

Bottom line: you are UNPROTECTED!

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ keep you and your families! Be safe, be at peace, and be blessed. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
