God’s Prescription Pad ….

March 13, 2014

“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!” Proverbs 3:5-8 The Message

The words are ancient .. living .. and faithfully true. Trusting God is good for your health. Read them slowly over and over and place your life in the middle of His words. You’ll find yourself confronted by the urgency to take control and the quiet offer to be led. You’ll find yourself unclenching your grip because the offer is unconditional. You’ll find yourself bringing a lot of hidden things out into the open because the Lord is inviting you to live the life He planned all along. There’s faith involved. That means what foundation are you going to trust to make life worth living? Jesus made God’s Word even more personal: “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5) When you read God’s prescription plan over and over, you’ll find yourself beginning to breathe .. maybe for the first time in a long time .. and maybe .. just maybe .. with a hope and promise not based on your performance .. but on God’s promise. His Words are thousands of years old. Maybe God had it right from the beginning .. and He built in the grace for you to find out in time. It only takes a moment …

“Dear friend, listen well to my words; tune your ears to my voice. Keep my message in plain view at all times. Concentrate! Learn it by heart! Those who discover these words live, really live; body and soul, they’re bursting with health. Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts.” Proverbs 4:20-23 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
