Yesterday we went after work to purchase chairs for our back deck. We moved the two we had there to the front porch. All the years we’ve lived in our house we’ve never had chairs out front. We went out to try them last night. It was like a different world. The breeze, the sounds and the stars were so beautiful! It’s like God had a whole other world right there all this time and all we had to do was change our view. So how about you? Are you missing something God has for you? Maybe changing your view would make all the difference. Thanks for reading!
Does it ever feel like you are doing good for God in everything but you see people around you that aren’t and they are prospering? I was asked this question and I really didn’t know the right answer so I just listened. I wanted to do some reading before I replied. So why is that? Romans 2:6-8 reads “He will judge everyone according to what they have done. He will give eternal life to those who keep on doing good, seeking after the glory and honor and immortality that God offers. But he will pour out his anger and wrath on those who live for themselves, who refuse to obey the truth and instead live lives of wickedness.” What I see is they are prospering in earthly things and may look and think they are living the good life but if they are not living for God, they are not truly happy. We must trust God and keep doing good knowing, He will make it all right one day. Thanks for reading!
I looked up Faith in the dictionary, it means; strong or unshakable belief that is not based on proof. I also looked up Expectation, it means; a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future. The two words are very similar but they are different. To me faith means believing God will act. Expectation is the result we are hoping to achieve. While it’s possible to do one without the other, God wants us to do both. Mark 11:24 reads “I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.” So when we bring our prayers to him, he wants us to have faith and expectation. He is on our side and he cares about our needs. Now that is good news! Thanks for reading!
Have you ever had your whole day planned out and it all just falls apart? It’s not anything you did. It could be sickness, something breaking, another family member or even a stranger that causes it. I used to come unglued and occasionally I still do but the more I’ve matured I’ve come to see it as Gods plan for my day. Proverbs 16:9 reads “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Now I try to take a deep breath and thank God for changing my plans because I know as long as I trust in His ways, He will always protect and keep me safe in His plan. Thanks for reading!
I was talking to my Daddy yesterday and he asked me a question. “How do you pray?” By the way he is a Pastor so I was a little hesitant to answer. He said “you should be praising God more than asking from God.” He also said “God wants a relationship with you and wants you treat him like your earthy Father. The more I thought about it. I do ask for more than I praise Him and I sometimes I don’t see God as my Daddy, I see him as this mighty God with bigger things to do than listen to me. You know what though, my Daddy is right! So today that’s what I did. I’ve talked to Him about my day and thanked Him for all He does. I told him how much I love and need Him in my life. How about you, how do you pray? Thanks for reading!
