Ornaments of Grace

“Wisdom and instruction shall be ornaments of grace about your head.” Proverbs 1:9
DISCOURAGEMENT ISN’T PARTIAL, IT KNOCKS ON EVERYBODY’S DOOR AND WE ALL GET DISCOURAGED AT TIMES. IN 1ST SAMUEL, DAVID, WHO WAS A GODLY AND MIGHTY WARRIOR, GOT DISCOURAGED (ALONG WITH EVERYONE AROUND HIM) BUT DAVID ENCOURAGED HIMSELF IN THE LORD. AS CHRISTIANS, WE DO NOT HAVE THE LUXURY OF STAYING DISCOURAGED. IT WILL DESTROY US AND BRING DOWN EVERYONE AROUND US. WHEN YOU ARE DISCOURAGED, IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THE FOLLOWING:
Proverbs 10:11 “The words of the Godly are a life-given fountain…”
them that love God & are called according to His purpose.”
we don’t hear anything; just stand & trust. (Eph 6:13-14 )
DISCOURAGEMENT IS REAL AND IT HAPPENS TO US ALL BUT THE IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS THAT YOU DON’T WANT TO STAY THERE.
Genuine truth isn’t based on feelings, opinions, nor theories.
Jesus is genuine Truth!
In John 14:6, Jesus declared, “I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life.”
Genuine Truth is revealed in His Word!
When Jesus stood before Pilate He told him, “… I was born and came into the world to testify
to The Truth. All who love The Truth recognize that what I say is true.” (John 18:37)
Genuine Truth changes hearts.
Genuine Truth changes lives.
Genuine Truth is evident to all who genuinely seek. (Jeremiah 29:13)
