Righteous Resolve

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 16, 2011

“The righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land.” Proverbs 10:30

Resolve is the result of righteous living. There is a determination deep within a soul to be dependent on God. When you are established in the faith, no one can remove you from Christ’s call. He has appointed you to this post of service. Do not leave until the Lord reassigns you. Righteous resolve decides to stay put; so, by faith, keep on for Christ.

It probably means you disappoint some and invigorate others. However, if your goal is to first trust and obey the Lord, you will be misunderstood by some and rejected by others. Friends may even urge you to move on, but you cannot because Christ has not released you. Your resolve is His resolve. Therefore, you persevere through pain, suffering and uncertainty. Righteous resolve remains, regardless of the consequences, good or bad.

Moreover, there is a righteous resolve that remains in Christ (see John 15:5). Your conversion to Christianity was a resolution to abide under the influence of Almighty God. You stay true to your commitment to Christ because of the joy that comes from following Jesus. The “meek inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5), while the wicked don’t.

Lastly, you cannot lose what you give away, and you cannot keep what you will not release. Indeed, a righteous resolve has a relentless trust in the Lord. Obedience, generosity and contentment all require tenacious trust. Therefore, resolve in your heart to go hard after God. Release your relentless pursuits, only after He has released you. Perhaps you ask, “Is my resolve righteous, or is it contingent on circumstances?”

The Bible says, “Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord” (2 Chronicles 20:3).

Where do I need to make a righteous resolve to remain true to my commitment and calling?

    I’m the manager of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and am trying to expand my wholesale side of company. I really hope that someone at targetdomain can help me . I considered that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if someone could suggest a dependable site where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Mailing List I am currently taking a look at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most suitable solution and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

    Hi there, There’s no doubt that your web site may be having internet browser compatibility problems. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, fantastic site!
