We choose our attitude every day. Jesus never had a bad attitude even though a lot of bad things happened to him. Psalm 84:11…the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. God wants us to choose a right attitude no matter what happens.
Joy: deep satisfaction and assurance that God is in control no matter what our circumstances are. James 1:1-2 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
When we come to the end of something, we think it’s over but it’s just the beginning. Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. The Lord is the beginning, Alpha, and the ending, Omega. Sometimes […]
As a Christian, we can count on having conflicts. It’s a part of everyday life. Goliath was the focal point of the conflict the Israelites faced and they were afraid of him. He was over 9 feet tall and there was no one around that was so tall. I Samuel 17:1-11 Now the Philistines gathered […]
The stress in each of our lives is caused by the way we individually handle our circumstances. Psalm 37:1-3 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither …Trust in the Lord, and do good…dwell in the […]
Anxious: worried, fretful, fearful, frightened Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. The Greek language from which the translation came for “Be careful for nothing” says “In nothing be anxious.” This is a command to not worry, fret, […]
When God speaks to us it is clear, without static or confusion. It is specific and we know it is him. If it’s confusing, we know it’s from the devil because God is not the author of confusion (I Corinthians 14:33). We can have confidence that God hears our prayer, but we may not be […]
Trust: to believe, to have full confidence, to give over to another’s control; to have complete confidence in the character, ability, and truth of someone regardless of the outcome. Psalm 125:1 They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. We live in a day […]
Continue: to keep going, to not stop John 8:31 Then said Jesus…If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed… We’re in a battle and we have to be determined to go on and continue to the end. Job had to go through hard times in his life, but he continued with […]
Real faith will cause us to change our behavior. James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. A lot of people are saying they have faith but they aren’t doing what the word of God teaches.
