#day5  Complete! Favorite Devotional part: So often we seek #joy and #peace in the wrong places: ‘How long will you love delusions and seek #falsegods?’ (v.2). We think that money, possessions or success will be the answer. But these are delusions and false gods. #truejoyandpeace, as David tells us, are to be found in a #relationshipwithgod (v.3). There is #greaterjoy in the #presenceofgod than there is in material prosperity and luxury. Prosperity, despite the apparent security it brings, does not necessarily lead to peaceful sleep. Only in God’s will can we truly ‘dwell in safety’ (v.8). According to Jesus, #truehappiness does not come from all the things that society suggests. It does not come from celebrity, beauty, wealth and possessions. It is not about how you feel. It is not about what you have or even about what you do. #Love covers and protects. It does not seek to expose other people’s weaknesses and faults. It does not delight in other’s misfortunes. Favorite passage(s): But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is #godly for himself: the #Lord will hear when I call unto him. Psalms 4:3 KJV http://ift.tt/2ihUeI2 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and #bestill. Selah. Psalms 4:4 KJV http://ift.tt/2jhoBCB I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord , only makest me dwell in safety. Psalms 4:8 KJV http://ift.tt/2ihNnhT #youversion #bibleinoneyear  #bibleinoneyear2017 #servehim #fixyoureyesonhim #bible #god #readthebible #scripture #bibleinayear #accountsble #jesus #biblechallenge #bibleinoneyearchallenge2017 #everyword #christianlife
