Walk With The Wise And Change Your Life


Proverbs 13:20:
He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.

It’s very important whom we surround ourselves with; even if we think a certain kind of people won’t affect us, they will affect us if we surround ourselves with them long enough.

Don’t hang around people who are hindering your growth or people who are negatively affecting your morals, values, and relationship with God. Remove yourself from people who are making you compromise to be with them and who don’t allow you to be the best you can be.

Choose to stay around people who believe in you, people who love and respect you and God, people who are good, wise, and righteous and who are having a positive effect on you.

 

Change Your Environment, Change Your Life

It doesn’t help changing yourself and your life if you don’t change your environment or the things or the people who contributed to your problems.

We often hear about people coming out of jail, and they end up right back where they started, they get back to using drugs, getting problems, and many end up back in jail. Usually it’s because they go back to the same people and the same environment that caused them to start with drugs or getting in trouble in the first place. And that’s how it is with most people who can’t seem to change their lives for the better.

The changes we make will not have a lasting effect if we do not remove ourselves from the things, the people, and the environment that made us this way.

If you’re in jail and you get out, don’t go back to the same old friends and the same old places you used to if you want a new, better, and improved life. Find new places and environments that are fresh, new, and different, that can help you change into a better, wiser, and more mature person than what you were before you got yourself into trouble.

You can use your lessons to teach others do the same thing; you can be a role model for other people who need or want to change. You can use your mess as a message for other people to learn from. 

The very thing that you’ve been struggling with the most, or the very thing that has caused you the most pain is the very thing you are meant to help others to overcome. When you heal and help other people, you are really healing and helping yourself.

CHOOSE WISDOM OVER FOOLISHNESS, CHOOSE LONELINESS OVER BAD COMPANY.

Are You A Person Of Humility?


A humble person has no need to impress others and to be the best. A person of humility willingly serves, pleases, and cares for other people. The humble person let other people go first on the bus, before them in lines, let others get the best piece of food and let other people watch the television program even though they have something they want to watch.

Humble people work to bring comfort and peace to the people around them, they don’t argue, discuss, and fight. They don’t get easily offended, don’t gloat, brag, or feel better than others.

Humble people easily apologize and say they’re sorry; they easily forgive and let go of other people’s mistakes. They don’t count or keep a record of wrongs done to them and don’t count good deeds done towards other people. They don’t always have to be right or have the last word. They are able to sacrifice and go through discomfort so that others can enjoy comfort.

1 Corinthians 10:24:
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.

1 Corinthians 10:33:
Even as I try to please everybody in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.

 

Humility Is Freedom

 

What  freedom you’re going to have that day you let go of the pride and the need to impress everybody and let go of the need to do everything perfectly. So that everybody can think that you don’t have faults and weaknesses, and that you’ve got it all together all the time.

What a freedom it is to stop arguing with people and always being the one who has to be right, have the last word, and always to have to have everything your way to be happy.

What a freedom it is to not stress with being the first and the best all the time, to relax and just let others go first and be the best at times. When you grow your personality into a character of humility, it’s easier for God to work in your life. Pride and ego separate you from God, and humility brings you closer to Him.

Psalm 149:4:
For the lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.

GET HUMBLE AND GET CLOSER TO GOD.

Stay Calm, God Will Never Leave You


(Article from Joyce Meyer.org)

Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today . . . The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.
—Exodus 14:13-14

When troubled times come our way, one of our biggest challenges is to stay calm. Our natural tendencies are to fear, to worry, and to try to do something to fix the situation or solve the problem. But we must learn to get our emotions under control so we can think clearly, act wisely, and pray in faith.

Moses often had to help the Israelites calm down. When Pharaoh’s army was gaining ground on them, they kept running, but knew they were headed straight into the Red Sea. Death seemed certain! Exodus tells us the people were frightened and angry with Moses, and they decided they would have been better off as slaves to the Egyptians than trying to outrun Pharaoh’s forces.

Moses was saying in today’s scripture, “Stop it! I know the situation looks hopeless, but don’t be afraid. Just be still for a minute and watch what God is going to do for you.”

Before Pharaoh’s army reached the Israelites, God rolled back the waters of the Red Sea so His people could cross over on dry land. When they were all on the other side, the sea closed again and Pharaoh’s fight¬ers drowned. This same miracle-working God is on your side today. He still fights for His people. Your job, if you belong to Him, is simply to “hold your peace and remain at rest.”

Love God Today: “Lord, I will not fear. I will stand still, stay calm, and watch what You will do on my behalf.”

 

KeepCalm

Don’t Give Up Right Before The Miracle


Often in life, the time when the pressure is the most high, the difficulties seem the most unbearable, and you feel like giving up, is usually the time when you’re the closest to your victory and release. And it is at this point you must decide to not give up and not give in.

This is the time when you should not be discouraged, but keep on going and press on and press on out until the end. Don’t give up, it’s just a test of faith, and keep on reaching out for God, because you’re almost there.

God will give you a smile for every tear, a day of sunshine for every rainy day, and a rainbow for all of your sorrows.  Don’t give up, it’s a Test of Faith. Choose Life.

The Power Of Prayer


 

Matthew 18:20: For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

Mark 9:23: Everything is possible for him who believes.

Matthew 17:7: Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

God says in His Word, “Ask and you shall receive”; and a lot of times we don’t have the things we want or need simply because we haven’t asked. Sometimes when we pray, we experience that they don’t get answered in the way that we want them to be, or as fast as we would like them to.

Sometimes we experience them to not be answered at all; if so we have to stop and ask ourselves what the reason can be. Sometimes the answer is simply “no,” because it isn’t the best for us or what we need. Sometimes the answer is “not yet,” that we may receive our answers and our prayers fulfilled at a later moment when it’s more appropriate.

Sometimes He doesn’t do what we ask Him to do, simply because we haven’t done what He has asked us to do.

When your prayers aren’t being answered, ask yourself if you’ve done everything God wants you to do and has asked you to do? Do you have the right behavior and attitude towards other people? Are you obeying Him and His commandments?

When you’ve improved all the areas in your life that God is dealing with you about, then you can start seeing real powers in your prayers and miracles happening. One of the most important things in prayer is faith. Because you work through your prayers, but God works through your faith. Faith is what connects you with God and is what makes the prayers successful.

James 5:13: Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Matthew 17:20: I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Matthew 21:21: Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
