God Is Closer To You Than You Could Imagine

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

There may be times when you may be going through something and you may feel as if you are all alone. Even at times when you may pray, you may feel as if God is very far away, almost as if God cannot see you nor hear your prayers because you are not even seeing results to your prayers at the time being answered. Always, remember that God sees and hears everything, and God will never leave you especially at the time when you need Him the most because God loves you too much, as well as cares about everything that concerns you.

Psalm 31:22 says “In my distress, I said, “God cannot see me!” But you heard my prayer when I cried out to you for help.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

When God Speaks, Everyone Listens

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

There is no voice that is more powerful than the voice of God. When God speaks, everyone listens. When God speaks, He commands the attention of everyone. Whenever God speaks, people everywhere will know that it is God that has spoken because God always has a way of making a statement while getting His point across loud and clear.

Psalms 29:3-9 says “The Lord’s voice can be heard over the sea. The voice of our glorious Lord God is like thunder over the great ocean. The Lord’s voice is powerful. It shows the Lord’s glory. The Lord’s voice shatters great cedar trees. The Lord breaks the great cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon shake like a young calf dancing. Sirion trembles like a young bull jumping up and down. The Lord’s voice cuts the air with flashes of lightning. The Lord’s voice shakes the desert. The desert of Kadesh trembles at the Lord’s voice. The Lord’s voice frightens the deer. He destroys the forests. In His temple everyone shouts, “Glory to God!” (ERV)

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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)

Real Love Straight From The Heart

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

Everyone is required to love others and a person’s love for others should always be real and genuine; straight from the heart. If a person says they love others, but the love is not real, a person can normally see when it is fake and phony, and can see when a person is pretending to love versus having real love. When real love is being displayed, a person will know it because they can feel it.

Romans 12:9-10 says “Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” (NLT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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 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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
