There Is An Opportunity For Everyone To Get It Right

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Because no one is perfect and everyone in life has been guilty of doing wrong in some kind of way at one time or another, everyone can have the same opportunity of doing what is right, as well as having a fresh start within their own personal individual life compared to any other person. It is as simple as a person humbling themself. A person who is humble will be open and receptive to listen and learn, and can be taught what to do and what not to do.

Psalms 25:8-10 says “The Lord is good and does what is right; He shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them His way. The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep His covenant and obey His demands.” (NLT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Are You Really Prepared To Go To Bed

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There will be times when everyone in life may get upset or angry at someone or may even get upset or angry about something. Whatever the case or however the situation may be, a person should never go to bed angry because anger that is not dealt with can lead to bitterness, hatred, resentment and even unforgiveness. A person should always try to resolve their problems if possible, and most of all never go to sleep with anger in their heart. A person who is angry will never have peace in their heart, mind, soul nor their sleep until they deal with the issue at hand. Sometimes, it is as simple as a person coming face-to-face with themself.

Psalm 4:4 says “When you are angry, do not sin. Think about these things quietly as you go to bed.” (NCV)

Do Not Allow Yourself To Become Distracted

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

A person who thinks for themself and does not allow others to negatively influence them will always be happy and have peace of mind. No one should ever allow another person to control their life to the point, especially when the things they know the other person is leading them to do are wrong. A person will always feel within their heart when something is not right; whether it is being around the wrong people, going to the wrong places or doing the wrong things. In order to be happy, a person must remain focused. In order to remain focused, a person must know when things are sent to distract them, such as wrong and negative people, wrong and negative things, as well as going to wrong and negative places.

Psalm 1:1 says “Happy are those who don’t listen to the wicked, who don’t go where sinners go, who don’t do what evil people do.” (NCV)

Consult God And He Will Let You Know What He Expects

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Even though we are in the world, we do not have to act like nor should we think like other people in the world. Each person should be their own individual person seeking God in how they should think and view things, as well as themself and not trying to take on the mindset and lifestyle of others. Whenever a person starts trying to copy and imitate the lives of others, that person can become distracted and get off track and can cause themself not to fully live their life in the way in which God expects the person to live, because the person will not know what God expects and requires of them. That is why each day God desires for each individual person to seek Him in regards to what He expects of them, and not what a person does in regards to what they think or feel is best for themself.

Romans 12:2 says “Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to Him and what is perfect.” (ERV)

God Wants Us To Trust Him; Not Question Him

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Because God is in control of everything and everyone, God can allow whatever He wants to happen, as well as stop whatever He desires to stop. If God allows something, He always has a reason, purpose and plan for whatever He may allow. Even though we may not always understand why God allows things to happen in the way which He allows things to be done, we must trust that God knows what He is doing because of His wisdom without trying to question His authority. Trusting God is what is required of us. Whenever a person starts questioning the authority of God with questions such as “why this and why that”, the individual puts themself in the position of disrespecting God. There are some things a person may not never know. If God sees fit for a person to know something, God will reveal it to the person in a way in which it will be very clear, and the things that once did not make sense will begin to make perfect sense.

Romans 9:20-21 says “You are only human, and human beings have no right to question God. An object should not ask the person who made it, “Why did you make me like this?” The potter can make anything he wants to make. He can use the same clay to make one thing for special use and another thing for daily use.” (NCV)

Don’t Count Yourself Out Because You Messed Up Or Made A Mistake

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There is no one person in life that is perfect; therefore no one has arrived and no one is better than anyone else. There is no one that does everything correctly or gets everything right all of the time. Each day people will mess up or make a mistake in one way or another, even though the daily goal of a person should be to do, say and think the right things. As long as people are alive, each person should be striving to be in alignment with the perfect blueprint plan that has been drawn up and written for their life. Everyone in life was born with a purpose, for a purpose and on purpose, and the way in which a person can find their purpose is through the blueprint, which is the Bible. The Bible is not just a book, but it is also “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.” Following the blueprint will help a person stay focused, on track and on course for their life avoiding many mistakes and mess-ups.

Romans 3:10 says “As the Scriptures say: “There is no one who always does what is right, not even one.” (NCV)

Do The Right Thing

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There comes a time in life when each individual person will be held accountable for their actions. Every person in life is given a free will to choose. No one can decide for another person, although some people have a tendency to sometimes allow others to influence them which can cause them to be led astray. When a person knows the right thing to do but intentionally does not do it, they are actually committing a sin.

James 4:17 says “Anyone who knows the right thing to do, but does not do it, is sinning.” (NCV)

God Does Not Assign People To Judge

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

No one has the right to judge another person for the the things a person may do or say because no one wants anyone to judge them for anything they may do or say at anytime. It does not matter how much an individual may disagree or dislike about something they may see or hear that another person does or says; God is the only one that has the right to judge anyone, no matter who the person may be or what the person has done or said. When we see or hear something about other people that we may dislike or totally disagree with or we know that the person may even be guilty of that have done wrong, God does not want us to start looking down on the person and to feel as if we can start judging the person; instead God wants us to pray for the person and allow Him to be the judge in the situation.

James 4:12 says “God is the only lawgiver and judge. He alone can save and destroy. Who do you think you are, to judge someone else?” (GNT)

God Does Not Bless Messy Motives

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

It is God’s will to grant the desires of a person’s heart. God wants to bless people, but God can only bless a person if their heart and prayers are for the right reasons. There are some people who desire things only because they see other people with things, not even realizing how those individuals may have come into acquiring those things. When a person only wants or desires things because of what other people may have, that is the wrong reason. Because of jealousy and envy that some people have set up in their hearts, they are actually blocking their own blessings. In order to receive anything from God, a person’s heart has to be in the right position and their requests have to be with the right motive, as well as in the will of God. Because God owes no one anything, a person with a wrong, selfish and messy motive should really understand that God is not obligated to do anything for them, at all.

James 4:1-3 says “Do you know where your fights and arguments come from? They come from the selfish desires that make war inside you. You want things, but you don’t get them. So you kill and are jealous of others. But you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight. You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God. Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything, because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure.” (ERV)

Did You Try To Make A Promise To God And Then Take It Back

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

It is not wise for a person to make promises to God because there is not a guarantee that a promise of any kind made would be able to be kept and fulfilled. Just like God keeps His word to people, a person should realize and consider that God is going to hold a person to their word, as well. A person should always really think carefully and prayerfully before making a promise or vow to God of any kind, because a quick and hasty promise made could cause a person to have regrets later on.

Proverb 20:25 says “It’s dangerous to promise something to God too quickly. After you’ve thought about it, it may be too late.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a blessed day.
