Be the Best You

Romans 9 20.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 9:20

But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’”

 

We are all unique, one of a kind creations. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. We each have been given different gifts so stop comparing yourself to other people and trust that God made you with a special purpose in mind. Love yourself the way God loves you and be the best you, you can be.  “A flower does not think of competing with the next flower, it just blooms.” – Unknown

Live Wisely

Ephesians 5 15-16

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 5:15-16

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

 

We are living in troubled times and it’s so easy to go astray from God’s ways. We need to live our lives conscientiously and with purpose. Jesus is your example of how to live a righteous and honorable life. Be diligent and wise in your decisions, making the most of every opportunity, always keeping your eyes focused on the Lord.  Ask God to give you the wisdom you need to make the right decisions in your daily life and He will gladly give it to you.

In the Potter’s Hands

Jeremiah 18 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 18:4

But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.

 

We are the clay, marred by sin, often feeling unusable. But in the Potter’s hands we are transformed into a new creation. If we give ourselves to God, He will mold us into a new vessel fit for His purpose and every good work He has planned for us. We don’t have to be perfect to be used by God, just willing. We might start out broken but God can make us whole.

Special Purposes  

2 Timothy 2 21

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 2:21

Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

 

No matter what you’ve done in the past God can still use you for his purpose.  When you come to God and turn away from sin you are forgiven and made clean.  God loves you and has a purpose for your life.  Get right with God and prepare yourself to do his work for only he can turn your mess into a message.

Confidence 

Proverbs 31 25

 

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 31:25

Strength and honor are her clothing; she is confident about the future.

 

A virtuous woman of God carries herself with strength and honor in her attitude and her behavior. She is in control of her actions and does everything with purpose and uprightness. She is respected for more than her outward appearance, she is respected for her godliness and holiness. She is confident because she knows God is in control of her life and the future.

Overcome Your Unbelief

Mark 9 24

 

Verse of the Day:  Mark 9:24

Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”

 

Every believer at one time or another has doubts about their purpose in life.  As long as you still have some faith God will work with what you have.  It’s not about your power or your strength, it’s about having faith in the power of Christ.  When you feel doubt and fear creeping in ask God to help you overcome your unbelief and increase your faith.
