When the things we hope for doesn’t happen and when we are in great pain, the enemy will always tell us that the easy way out is to just give up. But God is reminding us to do the opposite; to still hang on and not lose hope. Because on the other side of every setback is an opportunity. He wants us to remember that the difficulties we face today is not there to defeat us… they are there to increase us.
[ "Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him." - James 1:12 ]
God doesn’t want us to be tired all the time. He wants us to rest. In fact, commands us to do it. As Christians, we all need to take a break to restore ourselves. Taking the time to rest allows us breathe in and discover God’s comforting embrace in the midst of our busy schedules.
[ Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." -Matthew 11:28 ]
The moment that you start caring more about someone else’s needs than rather than your own can be a moment of breakthrough for you. A moment where you will feel God’s power to multiply work in your life. For He promised to bless you and your work when you care for the things that He cares about.
["Give generously to them (the poor) and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to." Deuteronomy 15:10]
Money can never give us true peace and satisfaction. And whenever we put our trust in our own strength, we will realize later on that all our efforts is still not enough. God is reminding us today that everything in this world can fail us. The only thing that holds up when the going gets tough is our faith in God. So if you want peace of mind right now, remind yourself that the only security that you need in your life is the Lord. You are safe with Him. Just trust Him.
[ Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." - Hebrews 13:5 ]
Do you want to be successful in everything you put your hands to? Do you want your business or work life to flourish? The Bible says, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” If we want to experience 100% success, let’s listen to God’s specific instructions & make a choice to follow it.
[ "Give generously to them (the poor) and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to." - Deuteronomy 15:10 ]
Small acts of kindness can set the tone of how our day will be. Our situation right now may not be perfect, but our lives will gradually become brighter and more beautiful when we allow God to mold us into the person He has created us to be. Kind and compassionate just like Him. We may not notice it, but the good things we do for someone else have big rewards in the future.
“I the LORD search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” -Jeremiah 17:10
When you keep on doing the right things, promotion is guaranteed. Nobody can stop it. So don’t feel weary in doing small acts of obedience and integrity in your workplace. Continue to do good, even when nobody is looking. Always remember that Jesus produces great miracles when His people trust and obey His instructions.
“And your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” -Matthew 6:4
Do you want to be detached from worry? Do you want be set free from the heaviness of catching up with the world? If your circumstances have been difficult lately, God is reminding you that contentment and true peace will never come in our life, unless we understand deeply who’s the “The True Source” of everything that we need.
[ "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--His good, pleasing and perfect will." -Romans 12:2 ]
As humans, we tend to look for people or things that will make us happy, only to discover that it cannot fully satisfy the longing of our soul. In the world, we may experience loneliness and discontent, but don’t let it bring you down. Fix your eyes on the Lord, for He is the only one who will never change and has the power to give you complete joy.
“Yes, joyful are those who live like this! Joyful indeed are those whose God is the Lord.”-Psalm 144:15
We will never understand God’s entire plan, our minds are much too small to comprehend His infinite wisdom. Maybe you have been waiting for God to move, but God is also waiting for you to show your faith by obeying His leading and direction. This is a new day! Stretch your faith and begin to follow God’s will for you.
“Take delight in the Lord and He will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and He will help you.” Psalm 37:4-5
