There is power in prayer!


So often we face people...
🌾who are too rebellious to give up harmful habits and addictions,
🌾who are too stubborn that they will not listen to good advice or instruction and refuse to be disciplined.
🌾who talk back rudely when you reach out in concern.
What do we do then? 
Time to look up to God in prayer.
Because...
"People may refuse our love, our good advice, reject our message, but they are defenseless against our prayers." 
SO LET'S PRAY!
In the last days we will confront difficult people but need to pray...them through!
🌺 2 Timothy 3 "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—.."
Prayers will soften hard-hearts, humble the proud, quieten the restless and break stubborn habits and spirits and more!
Time to look to God!
Be blessed

Let us not encourage Gossip

If "A" tells us something negative about "B" let us not quickly believe "A" and form a negative opinion about "B". 
It is sad how easily we form our opinion of people from what we hear from others before even trying to get to know that person and trying to find out what the truth really is.
What we hear may not always be correct because they just may be repeating what they heard or felt. If truly concerned to sort out issues it is better to get "A" n "B" face to face and sort out issues.
For our eyes and ears may deceive us.
It's said..in 
 Proverbs 25:7b & 8a "....what you've seen with your eyes do not bring hastily to court....."
 Proverbs 25:9b " ...do not betray another man's confidence..."

1 Thessalonians 4:11 "...and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you."

You are His treasured possession.

Deuteronomy 14:2 for you are a people holy to the Lord your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the Lord has chosen you to be his treasured possession.
The Lord has chosen you above all to be a special treasure for Himself!
You are His prized possession!
It does not really matter who talks to you or who does not!
It does not matter who notices you or who ignores you!
It does not matter what people say or think about you.
What is important is what God thinks of you.
It was He who lifted you up from the pit of sin and forgave you and helped you walk this far.
He is still working on you.
You are His treasured possession.
Have a blessed day!
Julia

Was wondering...



Was just wondering...
It is easy to pray and sing, "Lord, break our hearts for

what breaks Yours."
But, have we really felt the pain (emotional/physical) people go

through?
Have we taken time to see their silent tear?
Notice the sadness behind their smile?
Have we bent down to lift someone up?
Have we lit a candle for those in darkness and led them to light?
Have we guided someone who is confused?
Have we showed the way to the lost?
Do we know the difficult path some people walk?
Have we shared a meal with the hungry?

When we really see, listen and feel our prayers and words of
encouragement will be more sincere.

"Lord make us more sensitive, caring, loving and
compassionate to the hurting around us Make us more like You Lord

Jesus...."

Being Gentle...


We as God's children are to be 'gentle' and 'kind' too! We need to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. "Gentleness" is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.
🌺 Galatians 5:22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law."

🌺 Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
May God give us a "Gentle and a quite spirit"!
🌺 1 Peter 3:4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
May God help us pursue these things...
🌺 1 Timothy 6:11 "......pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness."

You are precious in God's eyes!


πŸ’¦ If you are the Lord's Redeemed, it doesn't really matter what people think or say about you. They may be quick to judge from what they see and hear.
πŸ’¦ But what really matters is what God thinks about you because He is the only One who can see your heart and knows even your innermost thoughts!
πŸ’¦ It does not really matter in people reject you, God will accept you the way you when you come to Him and He will mould you into a beautiful vessel and make you the apple of His eye and call you a man/woman after His own heart.
πŸ’¦ In your spiritual walk you sure don't need people who will throw your past on your face but a God who has forgiven your past and remember them no more and reminds of your Glorious future with Him in Heaven.
πŸ’¦You do not need to feel discouraged listening to the accusations of the devil. He is a 'master deceiver', 'father of all lies' and 'the accuser of the brethren.'
God is still working on each of us so that the day we see Him, we will be like Him!
🌺 1 John 3:2 "Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is."
Be encourage reading God's Word and you are Yeshua's beloved!

God bless!

🌺 1 Thessalonians 5:23 "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it."
