Do you only go a part of the way?

Give to God

Which part of these do you do every day?

” Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ JesusPhilippians 4:6-7

Do you truly believe in God and that He loves you and will take care of you? Then why are you anxious? If he can create the heaven and earth, do you believe your problems to be too big for Him?

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

Do you know people that only come to you when they need something? When they have gotten what they want they don’t even say thank you and you don’t hear from them again until they want something from you? Where I live, that is the way with everybody. I don’t like it.

Are you that way with God? Do you only go to Him when you want something? How many times in a day do you say thank you to Him? How do you think He feels when the only time you talk with Him is when you want something from Him?

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God Psalms 42:5

Do you spend time reading the Bible every day, do you listen to Christian music on the radio, do you watch Christian movies? Doing this will guard your heart and mind from all the negative filth out there.

Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance Proverbs 1:5

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyant,Jesus my friend, for being an all encompassing friend that has blessed me with the opportunity for such a wonderful experience as enjoying a magnificent friendship with You.

In Your cherished name I give thanks. Amen


May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day

Amen teacher joe. I personally find that the more time I spend focussing on God, the more the world fades around me , the more I am led by the spirit and then life just flows . He promises He will not let the godly slip or fall. Isn't that wonderful. The key is to die to self and live for Him. A peaceful godly life lived through Christ witnesses to unbelievers far more than a bible tract pushed into a hand at the mall. To the world we look like we live on another planet , but hey I love where I live in Gods presence. It is fleshly nature to want to fit in with the world , but we are set apart from the world as Gods children.

Jesus urges us to swap burdens, for our earthly burdens are heavy and binding but His is light. Amen .

The wages of sin is death but the wages of righteousness is peace .

Thankyou Jesus for the price you paid for our peace ,

Amen.
