"And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people." Leviticus 26:12
It is certainly good to know that we have some people in our lives that will always be there for us. No matter what we may be going through they are not only in our circle, they are also in our corner. They do not have to agree with us all of the time, but they will support us through every decision we make.
Anger That Leads To Sin
"Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27Neither give place to the devil." Ephesians 4:26-27
Each of us has allowed something or someone to make us angry. No matter how hard we try not to allow things or people to make us angry, we have become angry. When things or people make us angry because of what they have done to us we feel justified by our anger, but we do not feel good that we allowed it to make us mad. As Christians we feel we should not get angry. It is not being angry which is the problem; it is our reaction to the anger that is the problem.
Mountain Moving Faith
"Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done." Matthew 21:21
There are many powerful things that we come in contact with on a daily basis. Watching a demolition crew implode an old building, gives us opportunity to see the power of the explosives used to destroy a massive structure. If we have ever seen Mother Nature flex her muscles and the power and force there is in the wind and rain, or even the rush of a massive waterfall that is the power of Mother Nature at work. Each of us has also experienced going through a time without power in our homes, and how difficult it is to maneuver without power, it is the same thing when we do not have faith we are trying to maneuver in life without power.
Be A Blessing
“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.” Romans 12:14 (ESV)
As Christians we should pattern our lives and actions after God. We should strive daily to be more like Christ like in our actions, words, and deeds. We should want to be a blessing to those we come in contact with, and to show them the love of Christ in action. There are times however that we will encounter some situations and people that will challenge us and if we are not careful our actions will not be Christ like. The Scripture reminds us that we should, bless those who persecute us; bless and do not curse them. I encourage you today to be a blessing to those who God places in your path.
