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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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)

Dead Faith Will Never Produce Anything

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

When a person wants something, they will normally inquire of the thing that they desire. It is the same way when it comes to utilizing faith. If a person has a need or a desire, and the person does not take the time to activate their faith, the person should not expect to receive anything. Faith that is not activated is considered as dead, and cannot do anything for a person. In order to receive, a person must believe. All that is required of a person is to have faith, which simply consists of belief, trust and hope.

James 2:14, 17 & 26 says “My brothers and sisters, if people say they have faith, but do nothing, their faith is worth nothing. Can faith like that save them? In the same way, faith by itself that does nothing is dead. Just as a person’s body that does not have a spirit is dead, so faith that does nothing is dead!” (NCV)

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)

Let God Deal With Those Who Do You Wrong

“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. The best and wisest thing to do for the person is to immediately put the person into the hands of God, and pray for the person, as well as the wrong they did and allow God to deal with the person on your behalf, and you will come out on top as the winner in the complete situation.

Proverb 20:22 says “Don’t ever say, “I’ll pay them back for what they did to me!” Wait for the Lord. He will make things right.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

You Can Live Through Anything

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

A person can be very sick, even to the point in which others may view the person’s sickness as being hopeless to the point of no return. It does not matter what others may say or even how they may view or perceive other people when they are dealing with a sickness, infirmity or disease of some kind because other people’s opinions do not matter; the only opinion that matters is God because He is the giver and sustainer of life. It does not matter what illness a person may be battling or going through; if a person has the will to live, they can get through any sickness. That is why a person who is ill must remain positive and be encouraged, at all times.

Proverb 18:14 says “The will to live can get you through sickness, but no one can live with a broken spirit.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Do You Know Who Your Real Friends Are

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

God always has a way of showing people who their real and true friends are; they are not the people who you may see or even talk to everyday. Real and true friends are those who will be there for you when you really and truly need them the most. They will love you at all times; through your good, as well as your bad. They will not judge you, though they may have to correct you or tell you things you may not like. Real friends will tell you the truth, not to hurt you but to help you. Sometimes, something simple just as the presence of a friend can make the difference by just being there, even when they may not know what to do or say in a situation when a person may be going through. It is not always the big things that make a difference; sometimes it is the little things that makes the biggest difference in a person’s life and in a situation that help a person to get through, and sometimes it is the people God has chosen to be our friends; those God knows that we need, we can trust, and that will be there for us.

Proverb 17:17 says “A friend loves at all times. He is there to help when trouble comes.” (NIRV)

Sometimes, You Have To Be The Bigger Person

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

There may be times when you may find yourself in a conversation with someone, in which the conversation may seem like it is turning in a wrong direction. Before things get too out of control, sometimes you may have to be the bigger person and simply walk away. It may not be easy, but it could easily save you much more heartache and pain.

Proverb 17:14 says “Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before the argument gets out of control.” (GW)

What Do You Think

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

A positive mind creates positive thoughts, as well as positive ideas. Maintaining a focused and positive mindset will help a person see and hear clearly, as well as think wisely before making quick hasty decisions that the person may regret. Thoughts have a way of controlling a person’s life; that is why it is very important for people to take control of their thoughts. Praying over your mind daily is one of the best and wisest ways for a person to take control of their own thoughts.

Proverbs 4:23 & 25 says “Above all, be careful what you think because your thoughts control your life.  Keep your eyes on the path, and look straight ahead.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Everyone Stands In Need Of Help

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

God blesses people, not just for themselves but so they can also be a blessing to others, as well. God desires that when we see others who may be in need, and we can help meet the need to be of assistance, and not turn our backs and walk away. No one should ever think they could be exempt from being in the place of being in a position of not needing the help or assistance of others, at any time.

Proverbs 3: 27-28 says “Do everything you possibly can for those who need help. If your neighbor needs something you have, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow.” Give it to him immediately.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
