Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Fruit of the Spirit: God has a purpose for your life and He wants you to be a willing volunteer to carry out the work He has planned for you. Your Faithfulness and obedience is what qualifies you to do His work. Remember that whom the Lord calls, the Lord qualifies
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
Fruit of the Spirit: Pray for your friends and with your friends. Pray that they would have Love, Joy, and Peace in their lives. Pray that they would be able to be Patient and Kind when dealing with others. Pray for them to act with Gentleness and Self-control in all situations. Pray that their Faithfulness would exude Goodness in all areas of their life.
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
Fruit of the Spirit: Be Patient through afflictions and trials, stand firm in your Faith, keep believing and keep praying. You will be rewarded for your Faithfulness. Trust in the Lord and don’t give up!
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God’s Son, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Are you living a life focused on yourself? Are you living a life without purpose or peace? In order to get to where God wants you to be you have to leave your old life and your old ways in the past. Surrender your life to God and focus on the future He has planned for you. Christ now lives in you and you don’t have to live by your own power or strength anymore. Start living by faith in Jesus Christ who loves you so much He died on the cross for you.
Dear Jesus, Thank You for loving me so much You were willing to die on the cross for me. Although I can never repay You, I will try my best to live every day for You. By faith, I surrender my life to You, my blessed Savior. Amen
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
The only way to know God is to seek Him with all of your heart. Spend time with Him in prayer, read the Holy Bible and make a real effort to understand who He is. The more you seek God by faith, the more you will come to know how wonderful and trustworthy He is. The more you trust God, the more you will see His true nature, power, wisdom, faithfulness and goodness. When you experience God’s love, grace and mercy for yourself you will come to fully trust in Him and realize that He is always there for you and He is worthy of your complete trust.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
The fruit of the Spirit starts to develop in you as you leave sin behind and begin to seek the Lord with all your heart. As your maturity and knowledge in Christ grows, so too will love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Although will power helps, it has its limits and you must truly come to depend on God’s power to change you. It doesn’t just happen overnight. God is constantly working on you to become more Christlike. It takes a lifetime of dedication and obedience to God and His Word as you are led by the Holy Spirit. Fruit grows where roots are deep. Be rooted in Christ and let Him be the foundation of your life and you will see more abundantly good fruit to the praise and glory of God.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Faith is believing in and completely trusting in the one true God, His Word and His promises. It is the foundation and firm belief in the power, faithfulness and love of God. It is the core belief of what we hope for even though we cannot see it now we know it is to come. Faith lives in the heart and mind of every believer and even though they cannot see God with their physical eyes they still believe and see Him with their spiritual eyes. Faith is what helps us get through life knowing that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and that by the power of the resurrection, someday we are assured and expect to be in heaven with God for all eternity.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
Though life may disappoint and try us, we can be assured that God honors and fulfills His promises. We can trust and rely on God’s faithfulness which has been established in heaven and stands firm forever. During the hardest trials, our faith in God’s love and mercy will always bring us peace and comfort. Our hope and confidence in God lies in His faithfulness because His Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever. Even if we are faithless, God remains faithful. (2 Timothy 2:13)
