Kitchen Table Devotional

James

Day 7

This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.               James 1:19-20

Faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17).  We are complicated people, and we take in information from what we read, hear, feel, and remember but only God is true.  His words will help us to read and respond in the truth, not to the trouble.  The word of God and the work of God by the Spirit of God will walk us to and in the truth.  Hearing involves honoring, we can hear God and not honor Him by doing what our friends, feelings, and the photos in our mind tell us.  Learn to listen and lean on the word of God and you’ll know what’s right.  Let your faith command your feelings, friendships, and former memories today, and know the God of good gifts.
