Sure Ways To Receive God’s Blessings
God knows how most of us want to break free from our financial problems & responsibilities. He hears the concerns of our hearts and it saddens Him when we choose to turn to people for answers.
God wants to remind us today that when we place our HOPE on anyone or anything other than HIM, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment. But when we focus all our efforts in knowing what pleases Him & following it, blessings shall follow. Only in God's ways can we be assured of true abundance & freedom from our fears.
[ "Look at the birds in the sky. They don't plant or harvest, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. You are more valuable than they are, aren't you? Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek His kingdom above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need." -Matt 6:26,33 ]
Embrace the Blessing You Already Have
Do you long for a LOVE that lasts a lifetime? The kind of love that cares, comforts, guides and will never leave? A love that gives security “forever”?
Most of the time, God has already given us all that we need without us being fully aware of it. Today, God wants to remind us that the love of a lifetime is within our reach, for He has already given Himself to us - His very own spirit - the Holy Spirit. He freely gave Himself to let us know that in Him, we are complete; in Him, we have EVERYTHING, and that HIS LOVE is more than ENOUGH.
["I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete."
Only God’s Plan Will Prosper
Sometimes, God allows failure & disappointment to happen no matter how perfect our plans are to remind us that we can never succeed without HIM; that if our motives are not “united” with His perfect will, we can’t expect it to come to pass. The Bible declares, many are the plans in a man’s heart but it’s the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
God loves us deeply & has already prepared a great plan for us. As His children, we should make a conscious effort to "include HIM in every decision" we’ll make because when we are united with God, nothing will truly be impossible for us.
[ “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you, to give you hope & a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11]
The Power to Love the Right Way
When faced with an impossible situation or a difficult trial, we hold on to the thought that the God we have in our lives is so powerful that He can fix everything. Yes, that is true, but do you know that as His children, He has also given us the power to overcome difficult things in the world through the power given to us to LOVE and HATE?
Today, we will learn that by putting these emotions into the right action, we can truly know what is means to become victorious in every problem that will come our way.
[ “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 16:63 ]
Represent Jesus Well on Social Media
Being able to freely express our feelings through Social Media is a gift given to us by God. That’s why we as Christians are expected by the Lord to always conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the calling He has placed our lives.
Today, God is reminding us not to imitate the world & exercise self-control whenever we go online. We need to realize that we are living in challenging times where we will be constantly tempted by the enemy to react impulsively & speak negatively. Our Father wants us to always remember that "we are His children" & if we really want to win the world for Jesus, make a difference & have a blessed life, we need to represent Him well.
[ "Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.” -Proverbs 13:3 ]
The Light in the Dark
Being a light in a dark & troubled world is not easy. Today, God wants to remind us to always exercise awareness & self control whenever challenges come our way. Why? Because we carry the name of our Lord Jesus Christ wherever we will go - even in Social Media.
We may be provoked at times to post, like or say things that goes against the Lord’s will - but, we should remind ourselves always that social networking sites present a great opportunity for all of us to let our light shine before others & show the hope we have in Jesus. Let us use our words to build others up, rather than tear each other down.
[ "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” - Matthew 5:16 ]
