My Weakness, His Strenght

weakness

Psalm 73:26

My flesh and my heart may grow weak, but God always  protects my heart and gives me stability.

There are days that I wake up feeling tired, achy, and hurting. My body, after all, made of flesh grows older each day. If it is not one thing is the other. At the same time, after suffering through turmoils and heartache, I grow weak in mind and spirit. My heart feels the aching.

However, God’s grace is sufficient for me. It restores my physical strength and heals my spirit. I will hold on to God’s grace and allow it to let my weakness become His strength in me. His strength will feed my soul the energy it needs to continue carrying on when I am ready to give up.

Thank you, Lord, for being my strength, my protector, and my stability. It is you who regains in my, the love I need.

How Glorious to be Saved

ephesians 1 13Word for Today

Seal

To decide irrevocably: as in “to seal someone’s fate”

 

Verse for Today

Ephesians 1:13

And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ  you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit

 

The day we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, our fate was sealed. We received the promise of the Holy Spirit and God accepted us into His Kingdom. What a glorious day that was.

 

“Oh! How I love Jesus, for all He has done for me.

Oh! Wonderful savior who gave His life for me.

 

I remember long ago when my savior freed my soul,

What a glorious day that was.

It all seemed to be the end, but his mercy intervened.

Now, I am saved.

 

When temptation came up close,

He made sure that it was gone”

 

How wonderful is to be saved, to have the Holy Spirit dwell in us, to have Jesus by our side, and to be called a child of God.

It is a decision to which I have no regret.

ACCEPT JESUS TODAY. JOIN THE FAMILY

Holy Spirit: The Presence of God

 

Today’s Word

Holy Spirit

The spirit of God.

The presence of God as part of a person’s religious experience.

Today’s Verse

Luke 12

for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you must say.”

 The Holy Spirit resides in each of us that believe that Jesus died for our sins, that He is our redeemer. It guides us, makes us conscious of our words and actions, convicts us when we sin, and grants us peace when we do right by Him, by others, and by our own selves.

When we are faced with a situation good or bad, the Holy Spirit, through us, speaks on our behalf. It allows just the right words to flow.

The Holy Spirit, which dwells in each of us…

Guides us

Each day, we depend on the Holy Spirit to direct our lives. It provides us with the tools we need in each situation we may experience. As we grow in the word of God, we unleash new knowledge that anchors itself in our hearts and allows us to make better decisions. It helps us get through the day in a manner that glorifies God with goodness and kindness in our hearts.

Convicts Us

If our actions or words do not please God, the Holy Spirit convicts us. It lets us know that what we have said or done is wrong. It gently scolds us. It places a burden in our hearts that shows us our wrongs. Not only so, but it shows us what would be right so that we make take corrective action, whether it be repentance or apology.

Grants us Peace

Lastly, the Holy Spirit grants us peace in our hearts when we do or say the right things, when we correct our wrongs, and when we repent. It is a peace that gives us calmness, joyfulness, and goodness. It is a peace abundant with acceptance, forgiveness, and love. It gives rest to the unsettledness of our hearts. It affirms our Faith.

Godliness: Leads to Salvation

godliness

Godliness

the quality or state of being spiritually pure or virtuous

 

1 Timothy 4

7 But reject those myths fit only for the godless and gullible, and train yourself for godliness.

8 For “physical exercise has some value, but godliness is valuable in every way. It holds promisefor the present life and for the life to come.”

To be God liked is greater than any like we may ever receive. We all strive to be liked by others, however, to be liked by God is what matters most.

How can we be liked by God?

Confess His Name

Accept Him in Our Hearts

Receive Eternal Salvation

Do all three and see Him work in your life. Let him frame you into a godly person. Let your actions show your godliness so you can lead others to be liked by God. Let your life be the example that leads others to eternal salvation.

God’s Compassion

 

 psalm 103 13

Romans 9

 15 For he says to Moses: “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”

 Psalm 103

 13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on his faithful followers.

When I listen to others tell me their problems, I do my best to empathize with them. I focus all my attention on them, and listen to what they are saying. I try hard not to be composing an answer until they are finished. However, not everyone does that. It can be frustrating to converse with someone who instead of listening, is trying to answer before we are done contributing what is in our hearts. As a person, I feel that I need to understand what is being conveyed.

 That is one good thing about talking to God. He always listens to everything we have to say without interrupting us. He patiently waits for us to finish. He makes it easy to communicate with Him. So, talk to Him, wait for His answer, and savor His compassion.

 Talking to God

 Whenever there is something in our heart that we need help with, we need to let Him know. Let all our burdens be casted on him. He loves being sought after. He enjoys being a part of our lives. He is a good listener. He waits for us to tell Him everything before he intercedes. He understands our thoughts, our heart, our intentions, and our burdens.

 Waiting for His answer

 Communication with God has many rewards. We talk to Him. He answers back. It may take some time, but he is working on our requests. When we communicate with Him, we let him know that we wait for his reply. We aren’t just talking to talk. We must have patience when we are waiting for an answer. If we believe in our hearts that he has heard us, then we believe in our hearts that he will answer.

 God’ Compassion

 Because God is compassionate, we can rest assured that he will not judge us for asking, for talking, or for being listened to. Our spirit will guide us on what is right or wrong. He will intercede when the time is right. God shows his compassion for us in many different ways. We may see it, hear it, or feel it. He will hug us when we need a hug, love us when we need love, and care for us when we need caring.
