“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.” – Proverbs 4:20-22
Sometimes we do things of our own will, because we want to be in control of circumstances. But the Lord desires for us to follow His way. Apply the word of God to your life every day so that you can bear the fruit of His promises.
