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)

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)

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)

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 Will Represent A Person’s Lifestyle

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

A person’s life speaks for itself by the way a person carries and represents themself. A person does not have to walk around carrying a sign announcing who they are nor do they have to make it a point of proving to others what their status, title or position is in life. All a person needs to do is just simply be themself by living right, and doing right and honest things, and it will cause other people to know who the person really is because what is on the inside of a person will actually show up on the outside of the person.

James 3:13-15 says “Are there any among you who are really wise and understanding? Then you should show your wisdom by living right. You should do what is good with humility. A wise person does not boast. If you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, you have no reason to boast. Your boasting is a lie that hides the truth. That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God. That “wisdom” comes from the world. It is not spiritual. It is from the devil.” (ERV)

You Can Have Joy While Going Through The Process

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

In life, every person will go through things that may not always look or feel good, but yet what every person goes through will have a way of working out for their good. The things a person may go through in life are specifically designed to teach the person how to be patient; while also designed as well to build, strengthen and test the person’s faith. Nothing a person ever goes through in life is designed to break the person; only to make the person into becoming a better, wiser, stronger and maturer person.

James 1:2-3 says “My brothers and sisters, you will have many kinds of trouble. But this gives you a reason to be very happy. You know that when your faith is tested, you learn to be patient in suffering.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Will Give You Strength To Get Through

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

Everyone will experience trouble and have problems of different kind at different times in their life. Even though trouble and problems may catch a person off guard or by surprise, there is nothing that ever catches God off guard or by surprise. God knows everything and is always prepared for every situation when it arises. Because God knows everything a person will ever encounter or face in life, God will always give a person the strength to be able to endure the pain and go through the process of whatever a person may have to deal with. There may even be times when a person may feel as if they are too weak to handle a situation, and may feel as if the pressure is unbearable; that is the time that God will allow His strength to be revealed in the life of the person by giving them a breakthrough and not allowing them to endure or suffer a breakdown.

Proverb 24:10 says “If you grow weak when trouble comes, your strength is very small!” (NIRV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a blessed 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.
