I am grateful for twenty years with Jeannie! (yesterday)
Will they not go astray who devise evil? But kindness and truth will be to those who devise good.Proverbs 14:22
Me: Good morning Holy Spirit!
Holy Spirit: Good morning Jon!
Me: The notion of inventing (new) evil is interesting, given that Solomon declared in Ecclesiastes 1:9 there is nothing new under the sun.
Holy Spirit: Not invented in the existence sense, but new to the plotter. Just as devising good speaks of personal plans. Do you make plans to do good?
Proverbs 19:21 – Many plans are in a man’s heart, But the counsel of the Lord will stand.
Psalm 33:11 – The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
If you take My counsel when you make plans, then your plans will be for good. Kindness and Truth are in My very nature.
Galatians 5:22 – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
John 16:13 – But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.
John 14:6 – Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
Me: Thank You Holy Spirit! Thank You for Your guidance! Thank You for building into my life! I love You!
Holy Spirit: You are welcome! I love you!
