Opportunity and chance happens to us all. What we do with the two will determine our way in life. We are all given a 24 hr day. God won’t and will not force Himself on you. We are all given free will, given the opportunity to choose who we will serve God or the devil. Life and blessings or death and cursing. Choose wisely! Walk in and with the Spirit or walk in the flesh. Whichever one is fed the most will be the one that will dominate your daily decisions and will determine the type of day you’ll encounter.
Good Morning! When we go through things in life it’s for 3 reasons. Number one which is the main reason, for God to get the glory out of all this. (Whatever your this insert it here). Secondly, it’s not about us as a single individual but, for the benefit of helping other’s. Thirdly, while in your trial it’s to test your faith. Will you standby? You may even bend, buckle, and shake just as long as you don’t brake in the trial. You have then shown your faith to be tried and proven. What is your reaction or spoken response to these different storm’s? If we’re to grab hold of the three concepts we wouldn’t pray for God to take us out of the storm’s but rather pray God keep me in your perfect will and not your permissive will of what I want or what I perceive as being best for me. I want God’s all instead of my best. Or pray God hold my hand and help me cross over victoriously on the other side, because in you I am an over comer.
“If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 NLT https://www.bible.com/116/1co.10.12-13.nlt
It’s best to take one step at a time than trying to move ahead your journey by running and run into a detour. Live in the moment and not ahead. Trust God’s leading He knows how to get you there by avoiding the pot holes and the tragic detours up ahead. You must look with your eyes of faith to follow.
“for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises]—” 2 Corinthians 5:7 AMP https://www.bible.com/1588/2co.5.7.amp
Keep your joy going, it’s what the enemy is after. Once he steals joy he wreck havoc on your emotions. Which is why we shouldn’t be moved by our feelings. Instead we are suggested to submit unto God when we recognize the enemy tactics.
“But He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully). That is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it). [Prov. 3:34.] So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you.” James 4:6-7 AMPC https://www.bible.com/8/jas.4.6-7.ampc
But God that’s the most relevant part. But, the conjunction Word what’s your function lol back in elementary. God’s function is what stands and in full control. Watch the Glory of God in this latter 2020
Don’t be afraid to try something new. The new may be uncomfortable because it’s unfamiliar to you, but it will all work out for your good. Get rid of the old to welcome in the new.
“Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19 AMPC https://www.bible.com/8/isa.43.19.ampc
Thanking God for even the smallest thing’s show’s Him you are appreciative. Which I believe opens up the door to greater.
“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.” (The seven lamps represent the eyes of the Lord that search all around the world.)” Zechariah 4:10 NLT https://www.bible.com/116/zec.4.10.nlt
Whatever your “It” is that’s hindering you from progression in God. Or keeping you from experiencing your fullest potential in God. Or whatever your “It” is, do “It” in faith and love 💗
Remember do is an action step one must take to (go) move, which is also an action step. Allow me to say this that progression too is an action step because one will move forward. From one place to another.
Faith is an action step as well, you take your steps not knowing where God will lead just know He will get you there. Your step of faith cannot be seen with the natural eye . Scripture says it well, for we live by faith not by sight. God has granted every being with potential believe it or not. In Revelations 12:11 It says we are overcomers. That there my friend is potential.
Love is an attribute of God, love is who He is. Love is the greatest of all.
Many people say that they trust God. He/She knows God is in control, but their actions speaks and says different. I’m beginning to think 💭 is that person using lip service of what they heard or they tried God’s word and He’s been proven truth.
“And the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth and honor Me with their lips but remove their hearts and minds far from Me, and their fear and reverence for Me are a commandment of men that is learned by repetition [without any thought as to the meaning], Therefore, behold! I will again do marvelous things with this people, marvelous and astonishing things; and the wisdom of their wise men will perish, and the understanding of their discerning men will vanish or be hidden.” Isaiah 29:13-14 AMPC https://www.bible.com/8/isa.29.13-14.ampc
