Storms Of Life

The storms of life only come for a season, and with a purpose. They are not meant to last forever.

Let the storm do what it came to do, which is open your eyes, and your heart to what God is showing you.

Learn from it, if you don’t, it will come again.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV) – to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

Are You Afraid

Are you afraid or are you trusting God?

God doesn’t want us to be fearful. He gave us power and a sound mind. When we put our trust in him, He is our refuge, shields us from evil, and keeps us from harm.

God commanded us to be strong, courageous, and not to be afraid. Trust Him.

(Read the whole Psalm 91)

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

Psalm 91:9-10 (KJV) – because thou hast made the Lord which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation: there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

Joshua 1:9 (KJV) – have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage: be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

They Know Not What They Do

Most of us don’t have a clue what we’re doing when we hurt others.

Forgive those who have wronged you, and ask for forgiveness to those who say, you have wronged them. Even if you don’t think you have.

Forgive them, for they know not what they do.

Luke 6:37 (KJV) – judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven,

Luke 23:34 (KJV) – then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Life

When life grabs you by the horns, hold on with everything you got, and don’t let go.

Be strong in the Lord and his power. God is gracious and merciful. He will see you through.

Ephesians 6:10 (KJV) – finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Psalm 116:5-6 (KJV) – gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.

Worthy To God

Walk worthy unto God, not unto man.

Man will fail you. God will never forsake you.

I Thessalonians 2:12 (KJV) – that ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

Psalm 118:8 (KJV) – it is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Hebrews 13:5 (KJV) – let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Strong In Conflicts

We can’t wait for our conflicts to end so we can move forward in our lives. We have to manage the conflict, while moving through them.

You can’t be a conqueror without having conflicts. It’s where you grow the strongest.

Be strong in your conflicts.

I Thessalonians 3:7-8 (KJV) – therefore, brethren, we are comforted over you in all affliction and distress by your faith: for now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.

Do Good

When you are blessed with riches, be careful not to be high-minded, bragging and boasting, and trusting in your riches.

Do good to others, give thanks to God, and trust in Him.

I Timothy 6:17-18 (KJV) – charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, not trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy. That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate.
