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.

Help Is Available For Everyone 

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

There will be times when God will place people in your life who will need help; the need could be great or it could be small. Whatever the need may be, God will specifically assign the person to you just to see if you are going to help the person or if you are going to reject the person. God will never assign a person to your life if He knew you could not help, assist or meet the need of the individual. Today, it may be someone else who may be in need, but tomorrow it could easily be you. You should never think that you will not need the help of others or never be so close-minded by only going to certain people when you have a need. Neither should you try to choose only certain people to help by picking and choosing who you want to help because God can easily rearrange things, as well as remove things and people in and out of your life to show you that it is not about you or what you may have. When God connects people together, even for the purpose of helping or assisting, God has a reason for it and for everyone involved. God desires that no one miss their moment. 

Proverb 21:13 says “Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor will be ignored in their own time of need.” (NLT)

Obedience Is Always Better Than Sacrifice 

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

Obedience is always better than sacrifice. God always honors people for their obedience to Him. Whenever people obey God by not giving in to temptation, wrongdoing or things that will satisfy or please the person instead of satisfying and pleasing God, it shows that a person trusts God to keep them from doing wrong. God does not honor and bless wrong, but God does make a person pay for their acts of wrong. Because God loves right, He will always bless a person for doing the right thing, even if the person is tempted by the wrong things. 

Proverb 21:3 & 8 says “Doing what is right and fair is more important to the Lord than sacrifices. Guilty people live dishonest lives, but honest people do right.” (NCV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Controls Everything About A Person’s Life 

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

Life is not about anyone. Life is all about God; how God gets the glory out of a person’s life and also about God being glorified in the life of a person. There is no one who can plan their life better than God can. Because God is the one who created everyone, God is the only one who really decides each day what will take place in the life of every person. Therefore, when a person truly comes to understand that God is always the one in control of everything; even their life, a person will learn to just go with the flow of God, and not fight against what they do not understand or may not agree with. 

Proverb 20:24 says “The Lord decides what a person will do; no one understands what his life is all about.” (NCV) 

Proverb 20:24 says “The Lord has determined our path; how then can anyone understand the direction his own life is taking?” (GNT)

God Will Reveal Who You Can Trust

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

Good, honest, loyal, dependable and trustworthy people are hard to come across in life. That is why it is very important to never take anyone for granted when God brings a person into your life. When a person’s heart and motives are pure and right, they will treat you right and you will not have to question nor doubt who the person really is. God only brings people into the lives of others to help; not hurt, hinder nor hold back.

Proverb 20:6 says “Many people claim to be loyal, but it is hard to find a trustworthy person.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Has The Master Plan

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

It does not matter what you may plan each day; God can get in the middle of your plans at anytime and completely change them. Because God always knows best and knows what is ahead, sometimes He will cancel your plans and change your whole schedule around in order to save or protect you. Because God has the master plan to your life, His plans are always better than your plans could ever be. Even when things may not go the way you plan them, the thing to do is trust God.

Proverb 19:21 says “People can make all kinds of plans, but only the Lord’s plan will happen.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Encouragement for June 16, 2017

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

In order for a person to have peace in every area of their life, the person’s life must be pleasing to God. Even in dealing with enemies, God will cause a person to have peace in the midst of confusion that the enemy may be causing. That is why a person’s focus should always be on God and not their enemies, issues or circumstances, in order to not become distracted because distraction can cause worry. A person cannot have peace if they are worried.  

Proverb 16:7 says “When the way you live pleases the Lord, He makes even your enemies live at peace with you.” (NIRV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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

Each day people make plans; whether it be plans to go to work, school, shopping, visiting the sick, plans to travel from one place to another, plans to go on vacation, plans to make phone calls, plans to spend time with family and friends, and even plans to rest and relax. Whatever and whenever you plan things, you should always be prepared to know that your plans could change. God can and will get in the middle of a person’s plans at anytime and change them for different reasons. Sometimes, God will even change your plans to protect you from hurt, harm or danger that is ahead of you that you cannot see.

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.

Encouragement for May 22, 2017 

​”A word of wisdom a day keeps distractions and foolishness away.”

A person who delivers mess, dirt and confusion to others is nothing but full of negativity, as well as a troublemaker, but a person who delivers good, positive, uplifting and encouraging news to others will try their best to straighten the mess out of all the trouble that the negative person may bring to others. Never allow anyone to treat you like a trashcan by dumping mess, trash and garbage on you. Mess stinks and it is not meant to get in a person’s ears nor on a person’s heart.

Proverb 13:17 says “Unreliable messengers cause trouble, but those who can be trusted bring peace.” (GNB)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.

“A word of wisdom a day keeps distractions and foolishness away.”

God does not want people to worry because worry is not of Him. Worry does nothing but add extra weight on a person’s heart which can also lead to other problems. Whenever a person finds themself taking on the spirit of worry, they should immediately start thinking about the goodness of God by reflecting on things that God has done for them in the past; such as ways He has made, doors He has opened, as well as the times that God has provided for and protected them. The same God He has been in other situations is the same God He is in any situation. Worry is not the solution for any problem; trusting God is what leads to the answer. Because you never know what another person may be going through, you should always speak kind, positive and encouraging words into the life of others; your words may be the very thing that give strength to a person, as well as keep them going.

Proverb 12:25 says “Worry makes a man’s heart heavy. But a kind word cheers him up.” (NIRV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
