Your Rights vs. What is Right for You

1 corinthians 10 23

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 10:23

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

 

Honestly, this is a hard lesson to learn for many, including myself. You may be determined to demand your rights as a citizen of this country but it’s not always what’s best for you as a Christian.  Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you.  Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you as a child of God comes with spiritual maturity.

Enjoy Life

Ecclesiastes 3 12

 

Verse of the Day:  Ecclesiastes 3:12

I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.

 

God has given you the gift of life and He wants you to be happy and enjoy it.  Spend time doing things that make you happy with the people you love.  Do good for others and enjoy the blessings of God with a thankful heart.

Monday, Monday

Psalm 118 24

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 118:24

This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

 

If you’re reading this, it means God woke you up this morning and you have another day to praise and glorify God.  Each day is a precious gift from God and you should make the most of it. Rejoice, be thankful, be kind and be open to new opportunities to be blessed and to be a blessing to others.

No Other Way

John 14 6

 

Verse of the Day:  John 14:6

Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

 

Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for us to be saved from death and be with Him in heaven for all eternity.  There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son.  Not by works, merit or personal sacrifices.  Jesus is the only way, He is our Savior, and there is no other way.

Make Wise Decisions

James 1 5

 

Verse of the Day:  James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

 

When you have a decision to make that you are uncertain about, take it to the Lord in prayer.  God is wise and all knowing, the giver of all good things.  Bring your concerns to Him with sincerity and ask for guidance and wisdom to make the right decision.

Strong & Courageous

Joshua 1 9

 

Verse of the Day:  Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

 

The Lord has commanded you to be strong and courageous.  When you are afraid and discouraged turn to God.  It doesn’t matter what it is, you don’t have to do it alone, He will be with you every step of the way.  Trust in God and by His power He will give you the strength and courage to get through anything.
