“Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Athaliah the daughter of Omri. He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly. Wherefore he did evil in the sight of the Lord like the house of Ahab: for they were his counsellors after the death of his father to his destruction.” -2 Chronicles 22:2-4
When it comes to your personal life and decisions you make, do not compromise in godliness. Don’t compromise your principles or morals to make someone else accept you and like you.

Ungodly company will corrupt you before you know it. Watch who you draw close to and who you associate with.

“He that watereth shall be watered also himself.” -Proverbs 11:25
If I carefully consider others, God will consider me, and in some way or other He will recompense me. Let me consider the poor, and the Lord will consider me. Let me look after little children, and the Lord will treat me as His child. Let me feed His flock, and He will feed me. Let me water His garden, and He will make a watered garden of my soul. This is the Lord’s own promise; be it mine to fulfill the condition and then to expect its fulfillment.
I may care about myself till I grow morbid; I may watch over my own feelings till I feel nothing; and I may lament my own weakness till I grow almost too weak to lament. It will be far more profitable for me to become unselfish and out of love to my Lord Jesus begin to care for the souls of those around me. My tank is getting very low; no fresh rain comes to fill it; what shall I do? I will pull up the plug and let its contents run out to water the withering plants around me. What do I see? My cistern seems to fill as it flows. A secret spring is at work. While all was stagnant, the fresh spring was sealed; but as my stock Rows out to water others the Lord thinketh upon me. Hallelujah!

Sunday Evening| Pastor Steve Wainright | 1 Samuel 23:14-29
And Jonathan, Saul’s son, rose and went to David at Horesh, and strengthened his hand in God. And he said to him, “Do not fear, for the hand of Saul my father shall not find you. You shall be king over Israel, and I shall be next to you…” -1 Samuel 23:16-17
Jonathan strengthened David’s hand in God. How did he encourage him? He shared the promises of God with David. The Word of God endures and is tried and true. Your faith is strengthened when you are in the Word of God. “Faith comes by hearing–and hearing by the Word of God.”
