What do you do when you can’t solve a problem?
When we feel weakest is usually the time when we doubt God’s existence most. God does not promise that everything in our lives will result in a happy ending. But He does promise to pour His promise into every situation in our lives.
We may not always understand this but the unending power of God will always help us endure when things to go according to our plans or desires.
To live daily the life God wants me today I need to feed daily on His Word.
When I find quiet time to read God’s Word and make time to understand it the Holy Spirit interacts and reveals to me the ‘Next Step’ of my spiritual walk.
“I’m telling you the most solemn and sober truth now: Whoever believes in me has real life, eternal life. I am the Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate the manna bread in the desert and died. But now here is Bread that truly comes down out of heaven. Anyone eating this Bread will not die, ever. I am the Bread—living Bread!—who came down out of heaven. Anyone who eats this Bread will live—and forever! The Bread that I present to the world so that it can eat and live is myself, this flesh-and-blood self.” (John 6:47-51)
Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. (Rom 5:6)
The word of God’s love to a prodigal race reminds us what it cost God to send Jesus to die for us.
There is only one remedy for sin. It is the salvation purchased for us by Christ at Calvary. We will remain sinners, growing worse, unless we accept from God the salvation that is greater than any sin.
There are people in the world today who have chosen to live outside of the saving Grace of Jesus Christ.
People whose choices have been to live their lives by their own rules, and accept the consequences. Too often such choices have ended in moral decadence and spiritual decay.
Through recovery we have an opportunity to choose right living as our desired way to live. Recovery may be difficult but it beats all other choices.
Morality is being committed to eternal values.
Jesus calls us to be content with whatever we have because we have consciously chosen what is eternal and lasting.
Makes you think ….
Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Do you place Christ above everything else in your life? If you are not sure ask these questions:
1. How do you spend your time?
2. What dominates your thoughts?
3. Where are your priorities?
If Jesus is first in your life your answers should reflect a desire to get to know Him and His desire for your life better.
Philippians 4:6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
None of us can control our feelings. We feel what we feel. What we can control is:
– What we think.
– What we say.
– How we act.
Proverbs 18:21 Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit– you choose.
Hebrews 11:6 Without faith no one can please God. Whoever comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who sincerely try to find him.
God exists, He cares about me and He has the power to help me change.
