Stand On His Promises
“Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.” 1 Peter 5:9 (ESV)
No matter who we are we are going to have some trials and tribulations along the road in life, and it can feel like we are the only ones going through them. The trial, tribulation, storm, and situation can be so overwhelming that we will not say anything to anyone because we do not believe they would understand the severity of what we are facing.
True Freedom In Christ
"For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another." Galatians 5:13
Today across America we celebrate the Fourth of July or Independence Day. It is a time where as Americans celebrate the freedoms we should share. It is a day when family and friends can join together in a time of fun and fellowship. It is a time to remember that the freedom that we have is not free, that someone paid the price for our freedom, and a people built this nation even when they were not free.
Meditate On His Goodness
“May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord.” Psalm 104:34 (ESV)
We would be amazed if we could count the amount of thoughts that we have in one day. For many of us we think about a lot of things, and for some of us we daydream or our minds wander throughout the day. Living in a technological driven society we are hit with so many different things that stimulate thought.
Let The Lord Lead
"Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left." Deuteronomy 5:32
On our journey through life we should always allow The Lord to be our guide. When The Lord to be our guide through this journey we are not always going to understand the way The Lord is leading us, if we are not careful our not understanding the way The Lord is taking us will cause us to veer us off course, and begin to follow our own path or the path others try to get us to go down with them.
