SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/07- “Nowhere Near—Close Enough To Hear!” (Proverbs 15:29)
Premise Question: How can a person, being seen by The LORD, be looked at, as being upright and righteous?
“The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous.”
(Proverbs 15:29 NLT)
The LORD GOD Almighty is far removed, being a long ways off and nowhere to be found, from the iniquitous—those who are shameless and morally depraved. But, He is always close enough to hear and perceive, by inclining Himself, in a favorable manner and disposition, towards the humble and contrite petitions, entreaties, supplications and requests offered up in prayer, by the righteous—those who are upright and blameless, in their lives. (Proverbs 15:29 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Answer…By staying far away from the things that The LORD calls wicked; things that corrupt the heart and soul, the mind and body, and can keep and prevent the spirit from ever blossoming and flourishing—kept from ever being full of life or fulfilling and accomplishing Papa God’s divine purpose and will for their life.
Papa God’s Holy Writ admonishes us to run away from anything that feeds and satisfies our lustful and sinfully wicked desires. Rather, we are exhorted to earnestly pursue, with all vigilance and devotion, a righteous and pure life; one that’s characterized and accompanied by faithfulness, love and peace, as well as one that’s able to enjoy, to the fullest, the company of the righteous and pure of heart.
Papa God’s Holy Writ, without any equivocation, declares that there hasn’t ever been, is not and shall never be any peace for the wicked! But for the righteous, they will experience real peace and quiet, a calm assurance, with confidence, that comes from Papa God’s unfailing love and pure unadulterated truth meeting and coming together in a wonderful embrace, as righteousness and peace share an intense and passionate kiss!
So, if we want The LORD to be close enough to not only hear our prayers, but then embrace and give us a kiss of affection and endearment, we absolutely need to shun all evil and then approach The LORD, with a humble and contrite spirit; pursuing Him, seeking Him and His righteousness! It is then, that we will truly have all that we will ever need in this life—Him! Blessings…
