Put In A Good Word For Me
My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth me. Proverbs 27:11.
Everyone likes others to brag about them or at least put in a good word for them once in awhile. That’s the way it is with the Lord.
There are times when the evil one accuses us before the Lord. He is watching us all the time and waiting for us to slip up. When we do mess up he is the “tattle tale” and he lets the Lord know about it. That creates an even greater responsibility on our part. So we have to be careful on how we conduct ourselves. Therefore our testimony is important.
We should want to be pleasing to the Lord. According to the text that is wisdom on our part and when God is pleased with us, he can put in a good word for us.
We all know that we are not perfect so when we do make mistakes we want the Lord to forgive us so we can continue to please him. When he is pleased the evil one won’t have any advantage on us. And when the evil one does come up before the Lord to tattle tale on us, the Lord will say something like, “Leave him alone, he’s mine and don’t you worry about him.”
May God help us to be pleasing to Him.
No doubt every child of God wants to be pleasing to the Lord so I think if we were honest we would want the Lord to…put in a good word for us.
