Take Control

We’re unhappy when we shouldn’t, sad longer than we should, and have unnecessary pity parties.

You wouldn’t give up control of the steering wheel with your eyes closed, in the middle of heavy traffic.

Take control over what God gave you the authority to do.

Proverbs 25:28 (KJV) – he that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

Leave Pity Behind

As long as we keep feeling sorry for ourselves, others are not going to keep feeling sorry for us either.

Your pity will last as long as you let it.

You CAN do all things through Christ! That includes, leaving pity behind!

Psalm 69:20 (KJV) – reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

Philippians 4:13 (KJV) – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Come Out Of The Dark

The word of God is the light to our path, yet so many choose to continue to walk in darkness.

Darkness has no guide.

When are you going to stop stumbling and come out of the dark?

Psalm 119:105 (KJV) – thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

John 12:35 (KJV) – then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

Trust It

Don’t fight the word of God. Trust it.

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

Psalm 18:30 (KJV) – as for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

Oh Well

Have you ever falsely accused someone, and later found out you were wrong?

Did you apologize? Most importantly, did you ask for forgiveness? Or did you just say; “oh well”?

Were you falsely accused, and the other person never apologized to you???

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Matthew 7:12 (KJV) – therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Don’t Make Promises

When our back is against the wall, and we want out of a situation, we cry to God and make promises to Him.

Don’t tell God what you’re going to do, and turn around and say, you didn’t mean it.

Keep your promise, or there are consequences.

It’s better not to make promises you can’t keep.

Ecclesiastes 5:4-6 (KJV) – when thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause they flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?

So Concerned

We are so concerned with what others are doing, when we have concerns of our own.

If Jesus formed a line here on earth, the closer you got to Jesus in that line, the more you would be concerned about yourself, and not others.

Stop examining others, but concern yourself with yourself.

Matthew 7:3 (KJV) – and why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

II Corinthians 13:5 (KJV) – examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
