Leigh O’Dell, a lawyer in our firm’s Mass Torts Section, furnished a verse for this issue. I agree with Leigh who says this verse is a good way to start each day.
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. Lam. 3:22-23
Chris Glover, a lawyer in our firm who handles Product Liability litigation, furnished a verse this month.
While we were staying for many days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. And coming to us, he took Paul’s belt and bound his own feet and hands and said, “Thus says the Holy Spirit, ‘This is how the Jews at Jerusalem will bind the man who owns this belt and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.’” When we heard this, we and the people there urged him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” And since he would not be persuaded, we ceased and said, “Let the will of the Lord be done” Acts 21:10-14
Chris urges us to pay attention to the last eight words. “Let the will of the Lord be done.” Paul was completely and unconditionally surrendered to the will of God even if it meant he would personally suffer. Paul knew the secret of life’s fullest sense of joy, contentment, and peace lie in complete submission to the Father’s will. For Paul, nothing else would do. We travel down every avenue in life in search of joy, contentment, and peace only to come up empty-handed time and time again. Our search for meaning and purpose in life must begin at the feet of Jesus. Pastor John MacArthur wrote: The question in salvation is not whether Jesus is Lord, but whether we are submissive to His lordship.
Soo Seok Yang, a lawyer in our firm’s Mass Torts Section, furnished two verses for this issue. Soo Seok says he and his wife like these verses because they teach us about the importance of perseverance and total trust in God. They tell them that there is hope even in suffering, which gives us the power to endure hardships and whatever our circumstances are. Recently, Soo Seok had his sixth anniversary with the law firm. His eldest son started school in the first grade. These events gave him an opportunity to reflect on how things have been in the States.
For the past six years Soo Seok says there have been times of uncertainty and difficulty, and sometimes, it was just simply hard to be patient. However, now he says he can say for sure that it’s God who makes our paths straight according to His plan and timing, not ours, and His plan is perfect, and not our own. So Soo Seok says, by these verses, he is humbled again and he gives praise to God who is our only Hope.
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6
