Wednesday, September 23rd

In the Devotionals for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday we explore the four common sense reminders about "work" Pastor Ben covered in his message this past Sunday. Today's common sense reminder is: "Be an obstacle overcomer." The Scriptures below from Proverbs include both the ones from Sunday's message and additional ones that go along with them. There are so many things about "work" that these Proverbs speak to. To comment on all of it would be too much. Please read through the Proverbs and write down things that stand out to you. What is the one thing that resonates the most with you? Finally, identify one change you need to make in your life in regard to the common sense reminder: "Be an obstacle overcomer."

Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty. Proverbs 21:5

Despite their desires, the lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work. Proverbs 21:25

The lazy person claims, “There’s a lion on the road! Yes, I’m sure there’s a lion out there!” As a door swings back and forth on its hinges, so the lazy person turns over in bed. Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth. Proverbs 26:13-15

Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave. Proverbs 12:24

Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty! Proverbs 14:23

Someone has said, "The bumps are what we climb on." We not only have our "work," but we have the work of overcoming the obstacles to the work that is ours to accomplish. Life is truly a challenge, but we must not be immobilized by the element of "challenge" that permeates life. Jesus said, "In the world you have tribulation (challenges), but take courage; I have overcome the world (John 16:33B).

Lord, deliver me from fear and fill me with your peace. Grant me a confidence in you that allows me to rest in spirit, but invigorates me with divine energy for the work of actively serving you. Help me to see obstacles as surprise avenues that foster and connect me more fully with your presence, your grace, and your mission (work). Amen!

Can I just say what a comfort to find a person that genuinely knows what they are
discussing on the net. You actually realize
how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people
need to check this out and understand this side
of the story. I was surprised you're not more popular since you definitely have
the gift.

you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few
simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some
experience with something like this. Please let me know if
you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
to your new updates.
