DAY 10 - Proverbs 11:11
Key Scripture- Proverbs 11:11 (ESV)
By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown.
When we are walking uprightly, with integrity of heart and mind, God's blessing (His favour and protection) on our lives can cause even our city to be held in high regard. God gives us the responsibility of representing Him. His desire is for entire cities to come to know His love and be transformed. Can you imagine that? Can you see a Hamilton that is spoken of highly by other cities in our region? A city that is full of the presence of God, as faithful men and women live their lives to be the best representation of Christ that they can? As we live our lives in pursuit of Him, He allows our lives to make that kind of impact.
On the contrary, the words of those with evil intent can overthrow those very plans. Today, lets dream of a city where we see God's Kingdom established on earth as it is in Heaven, and lets ask the Holy Spirit for a heightened awareness of the words we speak about Hamilton. Commit to not be a participant in speaking negatively about your city, but instead, choose to speak life.
