Ecclesiastes 7:1-9:18

Reminder to myself: Written under the sun; not under the Son.

13 Notice the way God does things; then fall into line. Don't fight the ways of God, for who can straighten out what he has made crooked? (7:13)

Mike this is a plug for the One-Year-Bible Blog. The way to find out how God does things is to read His Word because God and His Word are One (John 1:1)

26 I discovered that a seductive woman is more bitter than death. Her passion is a trap, and her soft hands will bind you. Those who please God will escape from her, but sinners will be caught in her snare. (7:26).

If our society had a revelation of the truth of this verse, the Pornography industry and the sexualization of women (and men) would dry up and die. This society glorifies the seductive woman with all her curves and make-up, which hides the reflection of the true face of disease, death and destruction.

II Corinthians 7:8-16
Godly sorrow: I’m truly sorry and repentant for what I’ve done and whatever the consequences of my actions, I am willing to face.

Worldly sorrow: I’m sorry that I got caught and why should I have to be punished or make restitution because after all I said I was sorry.

Godly sorrow leads to a changed life, worldly sorry recognizes the wrong done only because it was found out and they cannot talk their way out of it. Worldly sorry fails to accept responsibility for their wrong; it was Mr. or Ms Somebody’s fault. Godly sorrow says, I did it and I accept full responsibility for my actions whatever that may be.

Psalm 48:1-14

3 God himself is in Jerusalem's towers.
He reveals himself as her defender.

The Lord will be my High Tower and my Defender just like He is, was Jerusalem defense.

Proverbs 22:17-19

The thirty sayings of the Wise, hmmm, I need to study these thirty sayings ‘cause I’m in bad need of Wisdom.

Grace and peace,

In 1985, at 32 years old, my husband and brother died tragically on a duck hunting trip. I had recently surrendered my life to Jesus and my choir director and her husband gave me a Bible with Phil. 4:6-7 written in the front. In my room, alone, with a house full of guests, I was searching for comfort and hope. As I read “Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving...!!! I thought to myself, how can I do that? How can I thank Him for this? But I remembered that all scripture was written for our instruction and that it never returns to us void, I bowed my head and heart and with a strange surrender I offered thanks.
Another scripture than has held me when no other could was Romans 8:35-39 and I know this to be so true! Nothing can separate us from our God!

We must remember the scripture says "In everything" and not "For everything"
(Phil 4:6-7)
