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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Always Makes The Best Choice

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

Whenever God calls and chooses a person to do anything, it does not matter what anyone else may think about the person; whether they like it or not, even if they feel as if the particular person is not the person who is fit to carry out the task within their eyes. Other people’s opinions do not count. If God chooses a person for a specific assignment, that is the person in which God feels and knows is capable and well qualified to carry out and fulfill the thing that is being assigned and given to them to do. Because God never makes mistakes nor does God ever change His mind means that whenever God assigns a person to do something, God has put the right person in the right place to carry out the right job. So, it is also whenever God blesses a person in any kind of way; God always blesses people in the way that He sees fit, and no one can take a blessing away from another person, no matter how hard they may try.

Romans 11:29 says “God never changes His mind about the people He calls and the things He gives them.” (NCV)

What Is Your Choice With God? To Stay Or Walk Away

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

As God has promised many times in His word, He will never leave a person nor forsake them; so His word is true because God never lies or says anything just to make a person feel good. Even though God never walks away and out of the life of people, there are many people who walk away from God daily, without realizing and giving thought of how they are really disconnecting and cutting, not only themselves off from God but also disconnecting and cutting themselves from the blessings of God. God will never force a person to stay in relationship with Him; God allows each person to make the choice on their own if they want to be connected to Him or not.

Romans 11:22 says “So you see that God is kind and also very strict. He punishes those who stop following Him. But God is kind to you, if you continue following in His kindness. If you do not, you will be cut off from the tree.” (NCV)

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)

All Things Are Working For Your Good

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

Everything that happens in a person’s life is for a reason; the good, the bad, the pretty, as well as the ugly. Because God controls everything, God can stop anything that He wants, but if God allows something to happen, no matter what the situation may be; God has a reason, a purpose and a plan for it. Even in a bad situation, God can and will allow things to work out for a person’s good in the end where God will get the glory out of the situation, and the person who is directly affected, as well as others will know that God’s hand was in the plan of the situation all of the time. What started out not making sense will eventually make sense in the end.

Romans 8:28 says “We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love Him. They are the people He called, because that was His plan.” (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)

No One Can Override The Plans Of God

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

Everyday people will make plans for their life. Some people will plan in advance for days, weeks, months and some people will even make plans in advance for a year. It is ok to plan or schedule things, but at the same time every person should also be prepared to know that things which are planned and scheduled can also change unexpectedly that will completely be out of the person’s control. From day to day, no one knows what each day holds for each individual person; all a person can do is walk out the path that has been laid before them by trusting and believing that they are on the right path, going in the right direction that is perfectly planned to get them to the place where they are supposed to be, at the right time.

James 4:13-15 says “Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city. We will spend a year there. We will buy and sell and make money.” You don’t even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? It is a mist that appears for a little while. Then it disappears. Instead, you should say, “If it pleases the Lord, we will live and do this or that.” (NIRV)

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)

Wisdom Is Available For Everyone Who Asks For It

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

In order to make it through life successfully, wisdom is needed. The only way that a person can obtain wisdom is through God because only God can give a person wisdom. God desires that everyone has wisdom, although God also knows that there are some individuals who may lack wisdom. Because God desires that no one is foolish, the heart of God is that a person who lacks wisdom will ask Him for wisdom, and will then receive it by faith by trusting and believing and not doubting, and will begin to operate in wisdom in each area of their life.

James 1:5-8 says “If any of you need wisdom, ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone. He doesn’t find fault. But when you ask, you must believe. You must not doubt. People who doubt are like waves of the sea. The wind blows and tosses them around. A man like that shouldn’t expect to receive anything from the Lord. He can’t make up his mind. He can never decide what to do.” (NIRV)

God Is In Complete Control Of Your Life

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

So many times a person may think or feel as if they are in control of their own life, but really no one controls his or her own life. From day to day, no one really completely knows what will happen within their life; that is why God desires that each individual will put their trust in Him and go with the flow of what He plans or allows to happen within their life whether they understand or not. God does not expect a person to agree nor understand everything He allows or does within a person’s life, but what God does expect and want from a person is their complete trust in Him.

Proverb 20:24 says “The Lord decides what a person will do; no one understands what his life is all about.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
