My Pen & Ink Drawing – the face says it all in regard to the passage below.
Isaiah: Chapter 50 verse 7
Because the Sovereign LORD helps me,
I will not be disgraced.
Therefore have I set my face like flint
I know I will not be put to shame.
Know today that The LORD will help you in all circumstances. You do not have to open your mouth to those who oppose you, pray to The LORD our God and He will vindicate you. Stand firm in your faith knowing that He is near.
From book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by – J.M.R.Larman
Well what do we do usually when someone opposes us?
Mainly I think we usually like to retaliate when we are sure we are in the right.
But how much better it would be if we kept quiet and listened to whoever is trying to tell us we are wrong.
We do not have to say a word until they are finished talking then think about what they have been saying.
If we still are sure we are correct, then we can thank them and say that we must beg to differ on the subject.
That really means – we can set our face like flint and we are not put to shame in regard to the problem that has arisen between us.
It is very hard to keep the peace sometimes but we do need to try.
