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.”
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!
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.
Strong spiritual and mental health. The holy spirit, amongst all of the spiritual gifts, can have positive effects on your mental health. That is because of the following qualities: Love ♥ Joy ♥ Peace ♥ Patience ♥ Kindness ♥ Goodness ♥ Faithfulness ♥ Gentleness ♥ Self-control. Think about it!
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.
When we were sinners, we thought about and did things that were wrong in God’s eyes. Yes, we did things that did not please God and we went to places that God would be ashamed of. However, now we should think of things that are good in the sight of God. In fact, we should do things that please God and go places where God would love to be. So, release yourself from that burden, set yourself free, and let go of the old you and everything connected to it. Press on toward the reward that God has for you.
This Bible lesson is intended to correct the misunderstanding of Isaiah 53:5. Particularly “(with) by His stripes we are healed”. By His stripes, you have spiritual healing (i.e., restored favor not healing for your body). Above all, Jesus gave a spiritual solution to a spiritual problem. He did not suffer and die to heal our bodies!
Jesus does not want you to worry about this life. Things like food and clothing. In view of the fact that the birds and plants are well taken care of by God’s care. Know that He cares more about you than all of His creation. Remember Jesus suffered and died for you!
In conclusion, the Scriptures often mention that the Holy Spirit is a gift from God (Acts 2:38). Also keep in mind the one baptism mentioned in Ephesians is the baptism of the Holy Spirit (John 1:33). That is the baptism Jesus baptizes with; the Holy Spirit.
You did not ask for selfish personal gain: riches, wealth, honor, the deaths of your enemies, or a long life. Instead, you asked for godly wisdom and knowledge to rule My people, over whom I have made you king. (The Voice)
Agape love is perfect love, it comes from God. You freely receive it and it cost nothing to use it. So give it to others and show them how to use it. Let everyone know you are God’s child; show genuine love to both God and others.
You may get comfort from many sources. Alcohol, sex, smoking/vaping, or by other means. But you must know that God is the source of all GOOD comfort. So, I urge you to get your comfort from God!
You do not have to ask anyone for anything. Trust God—demonstrate your faith—to provide what is needed to fulfill the mission He gave you. Remember, He sent the disciples (Apostles) without food or provisions because He was/is the provider. Trust God for the things you need.
