Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

"Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you." James 4:7
In Matthew Henry's Commentary on The Whole Bible he writes, "Resolution shuts and bolts the door against temptation."
What are you resolving against today? (Just a question for private thought.)


  1. One of my favorite verses, Theresa!

    I have no resolutions to share. God knows what they are and the help I need. :o) Happy Wednesday! :o)

    PS...I like your music playlist.

  2. I love coming to your blog and just sitting a peaceful, so reflective! I read your posts, listen to the music and just reflect...thank you!

  3. I've been asking the Lord for awhile to help me honor my temple better by loosing some weight and being more active. Today I actually took stock of what I had eaten and realized some simple substitutions I could make that really would have cut back my caloric intake. Tonight I am making a healthy dinner and tomorrow I am going to plan out what I eat. If you have a spare moment I would appreciate a prayer for me to be obedient to the Lords will. Thanks for this post. It was certainly perfect providential timing ;D Have a blessed week!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog (The Knowlton Nest). Yes, James has been a great study. I'm resolving not to let time wasters waste my time! I've been accomplishing a whole lot more!

  5. Happy ifellowship day! That phrase "shutting and bolting the door"... is great!!

  6. God is faithful to tell us how to overcome and help us do it!
