Today's Favorite Verse: 1 Kings 2:3-4
"And keep the charge of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statues, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:
That the Lord may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel."
What I pondered on is how the Lord's promises have two parts. Whatever the Lord says will come to pass, if I keep my end of the covenant with him. It is only by my actions that promised blessing maybe lost.
