“Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are lavish and deceitful.” (Proverbs 27:6 AMPC)
Jesus ALWAYS comes to us as our ‘Friend.’ And because He sees everything, that means He has the power and ability to speak the Truth into our lives.
As the Holy Spirit (and my wife) constantly remind me, there have been MANY times over the years that I’ve chosen ‘the kisses of an enemy’ rather than ‘the wound(ing) advice of my friend’ to my/ our family’s cost …!
”That relationship won’t end well for you”
”That job isn’t going to be blessing you hope it will be”
”That car / that house/ that ‘thing’ isn’t the best I have for you”
Child of the Living GOD, He will never lets up on his love for you, everything about him wants to BLESS YOU!
“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 AMPC)
