Grateful people are a delight to be around. Their attitude of thankfulness embodies what our Lord meant when He told us through the Apostle Paul to be thankful in everything! (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
At one time or another, we all face uncertainty. We want to make sure we are hearing the voice of God so we can submit to His plan for us. So we must trust and do!
“Don’t ever be afraid or discouraged, be strong and courageous, for the Lord is going to do this to all of your enemies.” (Joshua 10: 25) God has promised to fight for us and if God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)
Our Lord purposely designed us to want fellowship with others, and here’s what’s amazing; our Lord Jesus wants to have fellowship with us!
When we are facing challenges in our lives, big or small, life-threatening or just plain frustrating, it’s so easy to give voice to our fears. Fear doesn’t come from God according to 2 Timothy 1:7, so let’s not give voice to it!
When life gets tough, the voice of our struggle is loud. It can sometimes seem louder than the voice of our God.
While we are admonished not to stand in judgment of others, Jesus told us, “By their fruit you shall know them.” What is the fruit Jesus wants us to to be known by?
Don’t allow the accuser of the brethren to have the last word when you messed up. God has provided a way of escape!
It’s great to know that although Jesus fully knows us; the good, the bad, the ugly, and even the hidden side of each of us, it doesn’t disqualify us from receiving His love!
You don’t have to know everything about the Scriptures, sharing what the Lord has done in your life will allow the Holy Spirit to open hearts of people’s understanding so Jesus will be welcomed.
