A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps (Proverbs 16:9, NKJV).
Nothing is hidden from God’s sight. He knows your sin, he knows your shame, and he knows your predicament. But he made the sacrifice demanded for your sin. Jesus shed his own blood, and that blood covers your sin. All of your shame, all of your error, all of your unworthiness is erased by the work he already did. Rest in his unfailing love for you and in his power to take away your sin.
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1Thessalonians 5:16-18,NASB).
A natural response to feeling the love of God is to want to do things for him. But we have to BECOME people of GOD before we can effectively do GOD’S WORK. The only way to become his people is to SPEND TIME IN HIS PRESENCE! 🙌 NOT EVEN JESUS ACTED WITHOUT FIRST PLAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT GOD WAS SAYING! 🙌 TAKE TIME TO BE QUIET BEFORE GOD AND PONDER HIS WORDS AND PLANS
God values humility over pride and earthly success. That is why sometimes God makes Us wait before revealing his plans for US. In the waiting is where he grows us in humility. When things don’t work out perfectly, Our pride is dismantled and we learn the most VALUABLE LESSONS. God is more concerned with having your heart fully devoted to him. His goal is to be with you forever. Humble yourself in his presence today!.
Time is something we never seem to have enough of. There is one reality we must remember: we have time for what we make time for… Read that again. It’s easy to feel busy, but what are we truly busying ourselves with? Are we finding ourselves browsing social media, watching reruns or an extra long shower or more sleep. None of these things are necessarily wrong but if we feel pressed for time and unable to spend time with Our LORD, We may need to rethink where our time goes. “Be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. (Ephesians 5:15-17, NLT).
Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again(2 Corinthians 5:14-15, niv).
When we rely on the world to bring us joy, we find only temporary happiness. But in HIM, WE find peace. Trust HIM, so that you may have an unshakeable assurance that you can overcome the obstacles that have been placed in your path today.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33, niv).
Since God has shown us great mercy. I beg you to offer your lives as a living sacrifice to him. Your offering must be only for GOD and pleasing him, which is the spiritual way for you to worship. (Romans12:1, ncv).
Is your happiness determined by your circumstances? Pray that you will discover true joy in OUR CREATOR. Ask him to give you a deep and abiding satisfaction in each day that goes beyond human understanding.
Are you building your spiritual house on a solid foundation? Listen for his words, and put them into practice in your daily living.
Pray for a spirit of Obedience so that GOD can increase his blessings in your life. Walk side by side with him today, seeking HIS WILL.
… The word of GOD is alive today and just as relevant as it was for the trillions of original readers. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control–these attributes are waiting for YOU if you dive in and seek it out. 🙏
Are you a glass-half-full person, or do you live your life looking for the next tragedy to strike? It can be easy to dismiss the good we see in our lives because we’re too busy being on the lookout for the negative. God wants us to be obedient to him and sometimes his blessings are so good they are unbelievable. Look past the pain, the hurt, the trouble in your life. Can you spot the good? Don’t laugh it off! Rejoice in your blessings today.
Can you think of a time when you honestly couldn’t see where you were headed? Call out to him. Let his voice guide you home.
In my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I Prayed to my God for help. He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me (Psalm 18;6, 19 NLT).
Jesus is OUR light. He shows us just what we need to see to put one foot forward at a time….” I am the light of the world; he who follows ME will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12, NASB). This is OUR FAITH WALK we must trust the path the light reveals.
