He Will Never Leave Or Forsake You
“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 (ESV)
There are going to be some challenges in life that we are going to have to face, and those challenges may be so daunting that it will cause us to become afraid. Once fear sets in the challenge becomes even more difficult, and the thought of giving up sinks in because it does not look like we can overcome the obstacle that we are facing.
The Better Blessing
“Better is a little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble with it.” Proverbs 15:16 (ESV)
On a daily basis The Lord blesses us in more ways than we can count. Many times we are looking for the big blessing and miss the little and important things that The Lord has done for us. We should never overlook the little things that The Lord does in our lives, because it is those little things that sprout up into big blessings.
Accept The Gift
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
There are a variety of reasons that we get up every day and make our way to work. For some it is because they love what they do, and they could not imagine doing anything else. For some it is the reward that they get in just helping someone along the way.
Seeing Great Things
“For your eyes have seen all the great work of the Lord that he did.” Deuteronomy 11:7 (ESV)
It does not take much thought on our part to see and to know that The Lord has done great things in our lives. When we compare how good we have been to how good The Lord has been to us we should be amazed at His grace, mercy, and kindness towards us. Many times we focus on those things that have not gone well, or those things that we are facing that seem insurmountable, and it can become difficult to get pass those thoughts and visions.
