Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom. (Song of Solomon 2:15, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Everyone has opportunities to get upset and be frustrated every single day. Sometimes its the little things we cant find the car keys, traffic is backed up, somebody was rude, or what should have taken an hour ends up taking four hours. Something happened and now you are frustrated and all bent out of shape. There will always be something that can sour your day, but if you are going to live in victory, you have to maintain the right approach. You cant let the little foxes spoil the vine. In other words, dont let the little things in life spoil the harvest God has for your future.
Ive heard it said, Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond. Make sure you respond to life with an attitude of faith and expectancy. Sure, things may irritate you, but dont let that irritation last into the next moment. Let it go. Dont try to control everything around you. Instead, release it to God knowing that His plans are for your good, and He is leading and guiding you in the path of blessing.
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I choose to hold on to peace. I wont let the little things upset me and steal my joy and peace. I choose to trust You and praise You for what You are doing today and in the future of my life in Jesus name! Amen.
