God Has Your Back, So Why Are You Afraid Of Someone Stabbing You In It?

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

When a person really knows who has their back, then that person does not have to go around daily looking over their shoulder to see who is behind them trying to stab them in their back. Even though people should always use wisdom and discernment by being watchful and mindful of their surroundings and even the people they entertain, as well as who they connect themselves with, no individual should ever walk around living in fear of other people doing hurt or harm to them. Something on the inside of a person will always alert them to let them know when something or someone is not right to be around or that a person does not have their best interest at heart. So until a person gets a warning sign about something or someone, they should continue to live in peace and be happy making every moment of their life count and even when they get a warning about something or someone, they should then pray for wisdom so they will know how to be safe and protected in the process.

Psalm 27:1 says “The Lord is my light and the one who saves me. So why should I fear anyone? The Lord protects my life. So why should I be afraid?” (NCV)

Diggers Always Dig Their Own Hole To Fall Into

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

There are some people who intentionally do nothing but plot and plan to set out to hurt, harm and try to set traps for others, not even realizing that every time they are plotting and digging traps for someone else, they are really digging a hole for themself to fall into. A person who thinks they are deceiving others is really blind, and refuses to see themself because it is themself they are really deceiving. In the end, the person who eventually falls the hardest is the individual who goes around plotting and setting traps for everyone else, not realizing all of the time they were actually digging a hole for themself to fall into.

Psalms 7:14-16 says “There are people who think up evil and plan trouble and tell lies. They dig a hole to trap others, but they will fall into it themselves. They will get themselves into trouble; the violence they cause will hurt only themselves.” (NCV)

Your Mind, As Well As Your Body Needs Rest

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

There will be times when a person may have a hard time falling asleep at night, and then may even fall asleep, and still cannot sleep as they should because they will not be able to rest due to having no peace within their mind, because of things they may have went through and dealt with throughout the course of their day; whether it was people, situations, circumstances or things. No matter what it may be that a person is dealing with, everyone must be able to not only sleep and eat to keep their bodies functioning and going as they should, but every individual must also rest their bodies and minds, as well in order to properly maintain and function also. There are some things that no one will ever have control over in their life, and those things that a person cannot control, they should also not allow those things to take control of them by just releasing and letting them go in prayer. Once something is released in prayer, it should not even be taken to bed with you at night, because that is the time for you to rest, not just your body but also your mind.

Psalm 3:5 says “I can lie down to rest and know that I will wake up because the Lord covers and protects me.” (ERV)

Psalm 4:8 says “At day’s end I’m ready for sound sleep, for you God have put my life back together.” (MSG)

God Will Pull You Back In When Others Count You Out

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

There are times in life when a person may go through a situation where others may count them out. Instead of people being there for the person to support and encourage them, they will turn against the person, even thinking because they have pushed the person aside and counting the person out, that God Himself should do the same thing. God never counts anyone out regardless of what the person may have done or what the situation may be. Instead, while others are turning against a person to count the person out, they are actually allowing an opportunity for God to reveal Himself in the whole situation to prove Himself to the person whom others have counted out, as well as allowing God to prove to everyone else how He will get glory out of the situation.

Psalms 3:1-4 says “Lord, I have many enemies! Many people have turned against me. Many are saying about me, “God won’t rescue him.” But, Lord, you are my shield, my wonderful God who gives me courage. I will pray to the Lord, and He will answer me from His holy mountain.” (NCV)

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

There may be times when someone may intentionally do you wrong and immediately your first instinct is to do wrong in return to the person who wronged you.

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

Don’t Cause God To Flip The  Script On You

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

You should never rejoice in your enemies downfall, no matter how much your enemy may have hurt or mistreated you. Rejoicing in your enemies’ downfalls can cause God to stop dealing with your enemies, and can cause God to start dealing with you. God does not ever want you to be ugly or rude to anyone else just because another person may have once been ugly or rude to you. 

Proverbs 24:17-18 says “When your enemies fall, don’t rejoice. When they stumble, don’t let your heart be glad, or the Lord will see it and be displeased, and He will turn his anger from them.” (Common English Bible) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Let God Deal With Others On Your Behalf  

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

Whenever someone intentionally does things to you that are not right, the best thing to do is to tell God all about the person and what the person has done. Even though God already knows, He also knows that you may be hurt or upset. The best and wisest thing you can do is allow God to deal with the person instead of you trying to deal with the person on your own. Even though you may start out hurting; in the end, the person who caused you to hurt will end up hurting the most because whenever God deals with someone who has intentionally hurt or done you wrong, God has a way of making things just right for you, even to the point that the other person will regret that they did you wrong.

Proverb 20:22 says “Don’t take it on yourself to repay a wrong. Trust the Lord and He will make it right.” (GNT)

​Encouragement for June 21, 2017

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

There are some people who are so mean, evil and hateful that will go out of their way to do and say any and everything to hurt others. People who intentionally hurt others will never be blessed. Nothing good will ever come to them because while they are busy trying to hurt and destroy others, they are only really hurting and destroying themselves. God only blesses those who have pure hearts and right motives.

Proverb 17:20 says “A person with an evil heart will find no success, and the person whose words are evil will get into trouble.” (NCV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

​Encouragement for June 7, 2017

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

It is very important to use wisdom when you are in a heated conversation with someone, are disagreeing with someone or even upset with someone in the way that they respond to you. Even though you may be upset or disagree with the other person, you must not allow the individual to pull you out of your character in the way which you respond to them. The best and wisest way is to either not respond at all by being quiet, or either respond in a loving and gentle way to bring peace into the conversation.

Proverbs 15:1-2 says “A gentle answer will calm a person’s anger, but an unkind answer will cause more anger. Wise people use knowledge when they speak, but fools pour out foolishness.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
