Do Not Get Stuck In Your Plans

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

Daily; people may plan, schedule or even organize how their days, weeks or months may be by thinking that they are doing the right thing by thinking things through ahead of time and that is a wise and good thing, but there will be times when a person’s plans may change unexpectedly. Sometimes, God will be the one who intentionally will rearrange a person’s schedule or even change their plans; God may either allow the person to know at that particular moment or God may allow the person to know at a later time why the sudden change of plans. Whatever the reason or purpose may be, the person can be assured that God will always change a person’s plans for the person’s good.

Proverbs 16:1 & 9 says “People may make plans in their minds, but only the Lord can make them come true. People may make plans in their minds, but the Lord decides what they will do.” (NCV)

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.

Don’t Get Stuck In The Past

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

Sometimes, in order to move forward in life, you must completely detach yourself from your past. Some people are so connected to the things of the past until they become a slave to their past, even in their mind. God has so much more for people, but a person will never be able to embrace the new things God has if they are bound to their past. God never wants people to get stuck in a place nor does God want people to be hindered by anything or anyone. A person should never get so consumed with anything that they cannot let it go; whether it be mentally or physically. Some things, God does not even want us wasting our time thinking about because they are nothing but a distraction, and God wants us to be able to focus on the new things that He is doing in our life. 

Isaiah 43:18-19 says “The Lord says, “Forget what happened before, and do not think about the past. Look at the new thing I am going to do. It is already happening. Don’t you see it?” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Will You Say “Yes” To The Assignment

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

There will be times that God will speak directly to you; either through a still small voice, a dream, through someone in a conversation or maybe through a prophecy and while God is speaking, He may give you a specific assignment. If God gives you an assignment, What God is wanting to know is “Are you willing and obedient to say yes to the assignment.” In your obedience is where you will be blessed, because whenever God chooses you for an assignment, He will always properly equip and prepare you before He ever sends you out on the assignment.

Isaiah 6:8 says “Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.” (NLT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Does Not Do Incomplete Work

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

There are some people in life who always start out doing things, but never seem to finish or complete what they attempt or start out doing. Sometimes, it is just a matter of being patient depending on what they are doing and realizing that everything takes time, and some things cannot be rushed before they are completed. God will never give a person an assignment that He knows they cannot complete because God never starts anything without completing it.

Ecclesiastes 7:8 says “It is better to finish something than to start it. It is better to be patient than to be proud.” (NCV)
Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Controls Your Life; Not You

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

Everything that happens in a person’s life is already planned, even before a person is ever born. God already knows everything a person will do and God also knows what each person will be in life. God creates everyone on purpose, for a purpose, with a purpose so that His purpose and plan may be fulfilled. Therefore, when the Hand of God is on a person’s life, there is no reason for the person to get upset and try to run away from God; the only thing that needs to be done is for the individual to obey.

Ecclesiastes 6:10 says “Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.” (NLT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Do You Know What Season You Are In

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

In life, everything happens for a reason and everything has its own season. That is why it is so important to learn every lesson in each season so that you will not miss the blessing at the right season. Just like the seasons change in the natural; summer, spring, winter and fall. Likewise, you must be prepared for the seasons to change in your life, as well. Nothing lasts forever. The different seasons in our individual lives are our seasons of learning, maturing, growing up, becoming wiser, accountable and responsible. That is why it is so important to have the spirit of discernment to be able to discern and know when your season has changed, so that you may also be able to know what season you are in at each time in your life.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 says “There is a right time for everything, and everything on earth will happen at the right time. There is a time to be born and a time to die. There is a time to plant and a time to pull up plants. There is a time to kill and a time to heal. There is a time to destroy and a time to build. There is a time to cry and a time to laugh. There is a time to be sad and a time to dance with joy. There is a time to throw weapons down and a time to pick them up. There is a time to hug someone and a time to stop holding so tightly. There is a time to look for something and a time to consider it lost. There is a time to keep things and a time to throw things away. There is a time to tear cloth and a time to sew it. There is a time to be silent and a time to speak. There is a time to love and a time to hate. There is a time for war and a time for peace.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Your Situation Is Not New

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

There is nothing new under the sun. In other words, whatever you may be going through right now, may have gone through in the past or may go through one day in the future; someone else has already gone through it before at one time or another in life. You are not the first person going through that situation you may be in today, and you will not be the last person either. The way that you go through will determine how you will come out. The best part about going through is coming out. God allows different people to go through some of the same things so they may encourage others while at the same time, they are strengthening and building their faith, as well.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 says “Everything that has ever been will come back again. Everything that has ever been done will be done again. Nothing is new on earth. (NIRV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Do Your Part

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

Whenever we see people who are innocent and in helpless situations, and cannot defend themself; God expects us to come to their defense. It could be a child, the elderly, someone who is disabled or someone who is being hurt, abused or mistreated. However the situation may be or whoever the person may be, we should never stand back and allow someone to abuse, misuse, mishandle or mistreat someone that cannot defend or protect themself. God holds us accountable for doing the right thing. Sometimes, the right thing is simply making a report to someone that can change the person’s situation.

Proverbs 31:8-9 says “Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Help people who are in trouble. Stand up for what you know is right, and judge all people fairly. Protect the rights of the poor and those who need help.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Uses Everyone To Be A Blessing In The Lives Of Others

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

God blesses those who are a blessing to others. Where a person is today does not determine where the person will be on tomorrow. Today, it could very well be someone else in need of assistance from you in some kind of way, but tomorrow it could very well be you who may need the assistance of someone else. No one should ever think that they will be exempt from being in the place of needing a helping hand from others. Not receiving help whenever you are in need is a spirit of pride and also not giving help whenever you can is a spirit of pride and selfishness. Help may not always come through the person or people you may expect it to, but God will send it through the person or people through whom He chooses that He knows will get the job done. Whenever helping and receiving help from others, it does not always consist of giving money. There are many ways to give and assist someone who is in need. There are so many different ways in which God can use people to be a blessing in the life of others. We must be open and receptive to whatever God speaks to us to do in the lives of others, and we must also be ready, willing and available whenever God tells us to do something for someone, without excuse or hesitation.

Proverb 28:27 says “Whoever gives to the poor will have plenty. Whoever refuses to help them will get nothing but curses.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
