We can find comfort in knowing that Jesus cares about us. And again, I say, he will protect us. Always remember, Jesus prayed for you. So never worry about the devil and what he attempts to do to you.
“To get wisdom [good sense] is to love oneself” (Proverbs 19:8a NRSV). Through Godly wisdom and understanding. we establish a good strong family (home – Proverbs 24:3). Wisdom strengthens and protects the wise (Ecclesiastes 7:19). “The proof of wisdom is in the actions it produces” (Matthew 11:19 CJB). So I encourage you to get wisdom. After all, I am wisdom, I empower you with good sense!
Some “friends” pretend to be friends, but a true friend sticks closer than a brother. True friends want only the best for you. A true friend will never hurt you on purpose, but will tell you the truth even if it hurts. Proverbs 27:6 (CJB)
Either you are a friend of God or an enemy. You simply cannot be both. So, if you want to be a friend of God, meet the “if” condition. As I said before, the “if” condition is “if you do whatever I command you”. In other words, you are a friend of Jesus if you do what He says.
We may give in to the desires of the flesh from time to time, but we do not have to. Actually, we have power over our earthly, sinful, and flesh nature. Take control of your choices with the power of the Holy Spirit. Remember the words of Christ in Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you: …” We can end the conflict that lies within, using the gift of self-control provided by the Holy Spirit.
Are we too civil to make a joyful noise to the Lord? Is God not worthy of a joyful shout? Lift your voice and shout joyfully to the Lord for all that he has done for you!
Our Lord Jesus takes care of us and provides all that we need. In fact, He is the best or the ultimate provider and leads/guides us (when we allow Him to). It is the Lord, who feeds us. He is responsible for our well-being. The Lord is the one who keeps and guards us. As a result of His care, we have all we need. So we can say, “I shall not want” or “I am not in need of anything.”
Continue to hope for what God has promised because it is sealed with the Holy Spirit [Ephesians 1:3-14 (12-14)]. Above all, we should never lose hope that our destiny is life in heaven!
Let’s practice loving our haters. That does not mean you should accept physical, verbal, or mental abuse. But it is possible to love your enemies so much that you love the hate out of them! You can make it impossible for them to continue to hate you. Apply the love principles in this snack; let me know if you need help.
If you are born again and are living a Christian life, God dwells in you, so He is with you at all times. So remember, you are never alone in the struggles of life. Your helper, comforter, intercessor, counselor, friend, encourager, and advocate, the Holy Spirit, is there with you. Learn to depend on Him and allow Him to comfort you during your struggles. You are never alone in the struggles of life!
God gives you everything you need for salvation. This includes the ability to control your actions. He wants you to live a holy life and makes it possible to do so. I pray that you have enjoyed and will make the most of this Bible snack.
Jesus said in John 10:27 (FBV), “My sheep recognize [hear] my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” If you are a child of God, you will know his voice. Pray for the gift of discernment [1 Corinthians 12:10]. That is, you want to be able to tell when it’s from God, another spirit [1 John 4:3], or your thoughts.
You can not fool God! So God’s people should remove false words or actions (trying to fool others). By doing so, they keep away from deceit (anything that will mislead others). Remember, deceit leads to spiritual death, and truth gives amazing life.
Godly love is a love that we receive from God, it is divine, pure, and genuine. Show and give Godly love; let those you love know that you love them by saying it with words and actions.
Yes, God does forgive you when you admit to the Lord Jesus (your High Priest) you are guilty of sin. But you must understand, His forgiveness is applied when you repent and are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. It is at that time that you are forgiven.
So, come on you can do it, open your mouth, and give thanks to the Lord. Give Him credit for all that He is and that He has done, He desires our praise and thanks. Do you adore the Lord? If you do let Him know it, He wants you to show it!
