Our steps our numbered. By One Who loves us enough to tell us not to sin. How we live matters. Small choices matter. We need to be faithful in the little things. We need to diligently keep sin from our home and life. We will be accountable to God. God promises to give us understanding—but we need to be in His word to be able to get understanding.
Friends, are you discouraged or depressed? We learn from King David and Jesus that we don’t have to let our feelings be the boss of us. We can be the boss of our feelings by taking those thoughts captive and crying out to God. God can give us wisdom to drill down to understand the cause of our depression. When we can take that knowledge to the One Who made us, and filter our thoughts through His word, we find victory!
Are there areas in your life where you need to submit to God and have been resistant? Repent and God will relent. God’s plans are good. Let’s not mess up His good plans with sin. God help us to be an obedient people of His word, in His word, living out His word. May we not seek to be popular, but faithful.
We all have enemies, but we all don’t have to be an enemy. We can ask for God’s perspective and to see the real spiritual matter at hand. When we do what is right when others around us do what is wrong, God sees and He rewards. God has our back.
Plagues were not just for ancient biblical times. What can we learn from the plagues of Egypt? No plague can thwart God’s purposes. God’s deliverance requires our participance. It is God’s kindness that allows a plague that opens eyes and draws people back to Himself.
Our Savior has risen and what we believe about His resurrection matters. Don’t let false religions or doctrine keep you from the truth of our redemption. Adam brought us the curse and death. The good news is that while the first Adam brought us suffering, the second Adam, Jesus Christ, brought us forgiveness and new life. Healing. He defeated the curse of sin and bore our penalty. Hallelujah!
Competition is not a part of following Christ. We are all called to be a part of His work, not to compare with others who are on the same Jesus team. Christ keeps pointing us to what matters most – not comparing with others but ridding ourselves of sin. Sin destroys us. Our righteousness is not based on rules, but on Christ’s grace alone. Keep the main thing the main thing. Jesus wants us to eradicate sin in our lives and help others to, also.
