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.

You Have A Role To Play

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

God connects people in the lives of others for many reasons and also in different seasons. The reason is never about us and we never know when the season may suddenly change. The reason in which God does things is always much larger than what we can see, so that is why we should always be open and receptive to what God allows in each season of our life because God is always behind the scenes orchestrating by moving things around and bringing people together so that He may get the glory, as well as be glorified even though we may not be able to see what God is doing. God will make sure that everyone has a role to play, and no one is left out and so it is with a puzzle; there is a place for each piece to properly fit. You do not have to force puzzle pieces to connect together because once you figure out where each piece belongs, they will all connect smoothly and properly, and when the final puzzle piece is inserted, you will end up with a beautiful picture allowing you to be able to see the many details and structures that you could not see while God was strategically working behind the scenes. Always, remember you never have to force anything to make it work or come together. If one thing does not work; maybe that is not the right piece or person that was supposed to be a part of your life or journey at that particular time or season, or even in your life altogether. Instead of trying to force something to happen in your life, go back and pray about it and allow God to show you so that you will not get frustrated by trying to make something work that may not be of God. All things and everything of God have a way of coming together smoothly without having to be forced into place.

Romans 12:4-10 says “Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. 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.

What Difference Are You Making In Someone Else’s Life

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

People are placed in the lives of others for the benefit of being a helper in one way or another. There are many purposes a person can serve in the life of others. In making a difference in the life of others, you should be impacting, empowering, as well as being a positive influence so that each person you come into contact with, you are not only helping but you are also teaching and equipping the person to be better, so they can be more productive in life.

Proverb 27:17 says “As iron sharpens iron, so people can improve each other.” (NCV)

Have An Ear To Hear Wise Counsel

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

In life, there will come a time when everyone will need the advice or wise counsel from someone in which they can trust. Depending on the season you may be in at the particular moment, the situation or circumstance that you may be facing at the particular time or whatever the challenge may be at the given moment; God will always make sure that the right people are in place to assist, guide, direct and speak life into you regarding what you may be facing, dealing with or going through so that you may be able to see the good in the bad; so that you can make wiser and better choices and decisions, and also to be able to help you to see things from a different angle than the way you had previously viewed them, so that you may get a different perspective on the situation that you may had never thought of before.

Proverb 27:9 says “The sweet smell of perfume and oils is pleasant, and so is good advice from a friend.”

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Only God Really Knows What Will Happen In Your Life

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

Even though a person may make plans from one day to the next, no one really knows what will actually happen throughout the course of their day. When people put their life in God’s Hands, God’s plans will always end up working out better for a person than a person’s plans could ever work for themself. Though you may not always understand or totally agree with the plans of God; God always has a way of planning and organizing things for your good. God knows that a person can only plan for the present, but because God knows everything about a person, God can plan the whole future of a person at one time, even in one day. That is what you call “perfect planning.”

Proverb 27:1 says “Don’t brag about tomorrow, for you don’t know what a day will bring.” (CEB)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
