Faith Over Fear

Psalm 56:3

Verse of the Day:   Psalm 56:3          

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.        

David was surrounded on all sides by difficulties and dangers and was afraid for his life yet he trusted in God. He acknowledged and admitted his fear and then asked God to show mercy on him and help him. If he had let fear over take his faith, he may have had a different outcome. Likewise, the enemy will use fear to keep you from the plans God has for your life.  He knows if he keeps putting doubts and fear in your mind you will never step out in faith to accomplish what God has planned for you. Turn to God, put your trust in Him alone. When you are afraid, step out in faith knowing that God is with you and He will equip you for what He has called you to do.  So many people never achieve the success God has planned for them because they are too afraid to take the first step. Don’t let fear keep you from living the life God has planned for you.

Your Inner Circle   

Proverbs 13 20.jpg

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 13:20

He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.

Choose wisely the people with whom you surround yourself, especially, your inner circle.  Whether we like it or not, we are influenced by those closest to us. Simply put, a learned behavior is a skill or action that is developed by watching or being told what to do. If you are regularly surrounded, counseled or given advice by people who don’t know the Lord you will be subjected to the things of the world and when you surround yourself with fools, you’ll be inclined to do foolish things. The people you associate with have an impact on your life, your success and your relationship with God. There is a saying that goes like this, “Tell me with whom you associate with and I will tell you who you are.”  Like-minded people stick together so if one knows who your friends are they will know your character. Be determined to surround yourself with those who bring out the best in you, who inspire you and most importantly, who love the Lord.

A Heart at Peace

Proverbs 14 30

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 14:30

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

 

When you have a real relationship with God, He changes your heart.  You start to feel freed from anger, worry and envy.  You have peace in your heart and a hope that makes you joyful.  But a heart that envies the happiness, prosperity and success of others exhausts the body and soul.  Don’t let envy steal your peace and joy, don’t let it affect your spirit or your health. Trust in the Lord, what is meant for you won’t pass you by.

Meaningful Fruit

1 john 15 5.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  John 15:5

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
We can get through the day thinking we’re okay and everything is alright.  How much better would our day and our lives be if we accepted God and acknowledged his ways.  He may allow us to have success but without him it’s meaningless.  We need God in every part of our lives.
