Get Wisdom And Understanding

Most people don’t read God’s word because they don’t understand it.

The more you read God’s word, the more wisdom you gain, and the more understanding you will have. God wants us to know His word, to know Him, therefore, ask for wisdom and understanding before you begin to read.

Psalm 119:33-34 (KJV) – teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yes, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

Proverbs 4:7 (KJV) – wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

I Promise You

Our Father wants the best for us, whether you think so or not. He has made so many promises to us so we can have His best. Most of us don’t know what those promises are because we don’t take time to read His word to find out.

God promised — He said, for us to give Him our problems, take them to him, give them to him, he will carry them for us, and he will give us peace of mind.

God promised — He said, go in your closet, pray to Him and don’t tell anyone you’re going to do it. And whatever you pray to him in secret, He will reward you in the presence of others.

If someone came to you and said; “if you had 3 wishes, and they came true, what would they be”, you would let them know, in hopes that those wishes would really come true. Well, your Heavenly Father is giving you more than 3 wishes, but the desires of your heart. He wants to grant your every desire. But you have to read the word of God to know how to ask for what you want. Read the word of God, pray, and receive the blessings of God. He wants to bless you! He wants you to live a life of enjoyment, abundance, and peace!

Matthew 11:28 (KJV) – come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 6:6 (KJV) – but thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Who’s Mirror Are You Carrying

Are you carrying someone else’s mirror around? When you look in the mirror, do you see you or someone you’re trying to be?

God made you to be you, not someone else. We walk around envying and competing against others. What God has for someone else, is for that someone else, not you. God has something only for you.

We all have gifts and talents. What God has put in you, is only for you. God made you to look the way you look because that’s how He want you to look, not like someone else.

There’s a difference when you’re inspired by someone and being like someone. It’s not God’s plan for you to be like someone else, it’s yours. Trying to be like someone else only brings on frustration for you, not the other person. You are not able to be happy for them when they have something to celebrate, because of your envy and competition.

You can’t recognize there is something to celebrate in you, because you’re trying to be like someone else.

Give them their mirror back so that you can see yourself, your talents and gifts God has given you. You have something within you that God has given only you, and only you can achieve what God has put in you. Be the you God made you to be, you’d be surprised how awesome you are!

Psalm 139:14 (KJV) – I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Ephesians 1:4 (KJV) – according as he hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.

Don’t Let Go

When life has taken you for a ride that you did not ask to go on, don’t cry and complain along the way. Take the bull by the horns, leave those things that are behind, and press forward for those things that are ahead. Hold on!

Be determined to stay on the course that is set before you. And don’t let go! Don’t look back, don’t look to the left, don’t look to the right, but forward. God has went before you to make sure you’re path is clear. Let Him guide you. Keep your eyes on the prize as you ride your course, and you will come out VICTORIOUS! You will finish the course! God’s eyes are upon you. Keep your eyes upon Him . . . You can’t and you won’t go wrong.

Joshua 23:6 (KJV) – be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left

Philippians 3:13-14 (KJV) – brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

I Timothy 6:12 (KJV) – fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

Psalm 25:15 (KJV) – mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.

Teach

Do you teach your children the word of God? Have you, or do you read them stories? And are any of those stories from the Bible?

Whatever we surround ourselves around the most, that’s what we imitate. Teach your children the way they should go. Don’t leave that up to someone else to do. If you don’t know, ask God, He will show you.

Walk wisely, life is too short. You can’t take back yesterday.

Psalm 25:4 (KJV) – shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.

Psalm 32:8 (KJV) – I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

Psalm 90:12 (KJV) – so teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Proverbs 22:6 (KJV) – train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Hmmm

Excerpt from Get It or Get Got. . . How is it that we can choose to be with someone who has someone else, but we don’t want to be with someone who has cheated on us? How is it that we can except someone, and continue to be with that someone, knowing they’re going home to someone else? We can’t accept our significant other to touch us, knowing they have touched and been with someone else. This alone makes us want out and give up. How is it that we can continue a long relationship with that someone, knowing that they’re cheating on you and their significant other? Most of all, how is it that we have the nerve to fall in love with that someone?

Romans 13:12-14 (KJV) – The night is far spent, the day is at hand; let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day, not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lust thereof.

It’s Time To Go Shopping

When you write out a grocery list, whether physically/on paper, or mentally/in your head, whatever is on that list, are your expectations for you to receive what you want on that list. You are in control of that list. Therefore, whatever you chose to get, not get, or add to that list is up to you, based on what you have to spend.

When you pray and ask God for something, you may have a prayer list of things that you’re asking for. Your expectations of God is to give you what you ask for from that prayer list. Just like your grocery list, you are in control of that prayer list. Therefore, whatever you chose to get, not get, or add to your prayer list is up to you, based on your faith, and lining up with the will of God.

You are in control of what you want or don’t want. God gave you power. Your faith is your spending money — your power. He said for you to ask him. So, those things that you want, and they align with His word and His will, pray — and believing, and you will receive it.

Isaiah 40:29 (KJV) – he giveth the power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

Matthew 21:22 (KJV) – and all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Luke 19:19 (KJV) – behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

I John 5:15 (KJV) – and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
