Something to Think About

April 26, 2018

As we examine the activities of our day, we might entertain the thought of change. Being willing to let the Lord change us is an important part of our growth. Romans 12:1-2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” In these verses God tells us three things on how we can partner with Him for internal and external change. 1) Present your life, work, and ministry to Him. 2) Don’t follow the pattern of the world, as you might miss out on the radical changes He wants for you and 3) Renew your mind. This can be done by staying in the Scriptures and praying as you seek God’s wisdom for your life.

Unconditional Love

April 24, 2018

Don’t let your past determine your future. Look to God for the truth. Don’t let the past steal you from the joys of today. The Lord has so much for you. I pray you will take time to read His Word daily and talk to Him through prayer then watch how he will guide you. He wants to walk with you every minute of the day, you are so important to Him. Ask Him to open your eyes to the truth of His unconditional love for you. See yourself through His eyes.

Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV) says, Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Encouragement

April 22, 2018

Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He’s sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped.   -Dr. Charles Stanley

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”    James 1:5
“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”  II Corinthians 12:9

Courage

Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened. - Billy Graham

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love,    and of a sound mind.  II Timothy 1:7
