Let Your Light Shine
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:16
It is important to remember who we are at all times. There are times when our conduct does not resemble who we are in Christ. We can go to Church on Sunday sing, shout, and dance for all the good things God has done in our lives, then on Monday no one would ever know that we are Christians. It is essential that we allow our witness for Christ to be evident at all times. The Scripture reminds us to, let your light so shine before me, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
In The Time Of Trouble
"And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me." Psalm 50:15
Each of us can reflect on a day when trouble has come our way. There are times when we got ourselves into trouble, and there are other times when others may have brought the trouble to us, and yet and still there are times when trouble just came out of nowhere and found us. It is in these times we need to make sure we call on the right person to help us out of all the trouble we may find ourselves in. We have trouble in our homes, jobs, cities, and communities where we live.
Follow The Road God Has You On
"After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward." Genesis 15:1
Life can be difficult at times especially when we are going through a rough spot in our lives. It is in the difficult times of life that it is hard to make the right decisions, because we already see ourselves in a bad situation and we do not want to make it any worse. When we decide to give our lives to God, we have to know without a doubt that God will lead us and guide us through every difficult situations and circumstances we face.
"And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it." Job 1:7
The enemy has a job to do and he is good at what he does. The enemy's purpose for our life is to confuse us and to make sure we do not reach our God given potential and destiny. The enemy has no problem putting roadblocks in our paths and stumbling blocks in our lives. It is essential for us who call ourselves Christians not to give in to the things the enemy has placed in our lives. The enemy had an opportunity to try to take Job off of the path God had him on.
