September 28, 2017 FOLLOWING ADVICE
We tend to receive a lot of advice. Some of it we ask for. Some of it we don’t. We can get advice, but the ultimate decision is up to us. The best advice we can get is from God. If we listen to God, He will give us peace. If we listen and are obedient to Him, we won’t need to be afraid. When we follow through with what He asks us to do, He will keep us safe and protect us. We need to remember to choose wisely the advice we follow and let God be our ultimate decision maker.
Proverbs 1:33 “But all who listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.” (NLT)
1. List some advice you recently received.
2. Write about some bad advice you followed.
3. Know God’s advice is always the best route.
4. Remember God’s word always brings peace.
Dear Lord, we know You have great plans for us. We know others will want to give us their opinions and advice in all we do. Help us to turn to You for guidance and to follow Your path. We want to listen, obey and follow through. We want to make a difference for You so we can live in peace and help others to learn to do the same. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
God promises we will live in peace when we choose to follow Him.
We need to follow God’s word if we want true peace.
God’s word brings peace. When we share God’s word with others, we can help them know His peace.
When there are too many directions to go in life, we need to go God’s way. His way brings peace.
God allowed His Son to come to earth and die for us so that we may have peace.
John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (NLT)
We can’t get peace from this world but we can get peace from God’s word.
