Settle

#fmf  on Monday

Romans 2:6-8

He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.

What is your first thought when the word settle is brought to your mind?

Settle a score……..

Settle a debt……….

Settle the noises……..

Settle down………

This word could bring up a number of thoughts and emotions.  It could bring thoughts of peace or rage.  It could only involve yourself or…..

Mark 8:36

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?

It could involve others.  But when I think of Settle, it involves me and Jesus.   I have gone to Him many times to settle my soul.  I have reached out from the point of pain and of shame.  Each time He draws me near, forgives, loves and redeems me.  Each time He settles my soul.

Psalm 23:3

He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

You alone are the one I can trust to settle me Lord.  Amen!

  1. I love the contrasts you show. The world would push us to settle the score, where Jesus would settle us down. Thanks for this! I’m in the #52 spot. Blessings to you!
