God Is Closer To You Than You Could Imagine

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

There may be times when you may be going through something and you may feel as if you are all alone. Even at times when you may pray, you may feel as if God is very far away, almost as if God cannot see you nor hear your prayers because you are not even seeing results to your prayers at the time being answered. Always, remember that God sees and hears everything, and God will never leave you especially at the time when you need Him the most because God loves you too much, as well as cares about everything that concerns you.

Psalm 31:22 says “In my distress, I said, “God cannot see me!” But you heard my prayer when I cried out to you for help.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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)

Trust God For Strategies

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

When people smile in your face, but at the same time do not mean you any good, God will show you who the individuals really are. Sometimes, it may be people close to you; at other times it may be people that are around you, such as on a job and then it could even be someone that may not even like you, for no reason at all. Whoever the individuals may be and whatever their reasons may be, if you would just trust God; God will always keep you steps ahead of your enemies and always show you which direction to go in so that you will be safe, and can stay steps ahead of those individuals while also living the life that God desires for you to live.

Psalm 5:8 says “Lord, since I have many enemies, show me the right thing to do. Show me clearly how you want me to live.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Real Love Straight From The Heart

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

Everyone is required to love others and a person’s love for others should always be real and genuine; straight from the heart. If a person says they love others, but the love is not real, a person can normally see when it is fake and phony, and can see when a person is pretending to love versus having real love. When real love is being displayed, a person will know it because they can feel it.

Romans 12:9-10 says “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.

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

What Is Your Choice With God? To Stay Or Walk Away

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

As God has promised many times in His word, He will never leave a person nor forsake them; so His word is true because God never lies or says anything just to make a person feel good. Even though God never walks away and out of the life of people, there are many people who walk away from God daily, without realizing and giving thought of how they are really disconnecting and cutting, not only themselves off from God but also disconnecting and cutting themselves from the blessings of God. God will never force a person to stay in relationship with Him; God allows each person to make the choice on their own if they want to be connected to Him or not.

Romans 11:22 says “So you see that God is kind and also very strict. He punishes those who stop following Him. But God is kind to you, if you continue following in His kindness. If you do not, you will be cut off from the tree.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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)

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
