Better

BetterisGodssmile.mmitm.mjb

For a day in Your courts is BETTER than a thousand. Psalm 84:10

Better is God’s “well done faithful servant” than the world’s biggest pat on the back.
Better is God’s lowliest place of service than the world’s highest seat of power.
Better is God’s smallest measure of blessing than the world’s largest treasure of wealth.
Better is God’s word of wisdom than the world’s strongest opinions and best advice.
Better is God’s smile of approval than the world’s loudest shouts of praise.

    Yes being a people pleaser is not good, we need to be a God pleaser.
    Serving Him by serving people. Yes we need to be faithful to Him and
    rejoice when He smiles at what we are doing. I want His smiles not His
    frowns. Guide me today sweet Jesus. Amen.

    FOR YOU FATHER IS FAR BETTER THAN THE WORLD. YOU ARE THE BEST OF US AND YOUR LOVE WILL NEVER END. THE WORLD WILL USE AND ABUSE US BUT YOU WILL GIVE US COMFORT AND LOVE. YOU WILL ALWAYS SHINE IN US FOR YOU ARE BETTER THAN ANYTHING THE WORLD HAVE TO OFFER.

    Thank you so much for this devotional. I really needed it. I have printed it out and placed it in my journal. I also shared it with a friend and she was most appreciative of it as well. Thank you again.

    Good reminder for everyone of us who is bombarded with the world’s values of achievement, success, wisdom… Lord, strengthen our faith in you and empower us to live a life that is in your will.
