Teaching by Example

Psalm 34 11

Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:11

Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

 

The best gift we can give our children is to teach them to obey and follow the Lord which leads to wisdom, prosperity and a happy life. Teaching children to fear the Lord doesn’t mean they should be afraid of Him, it means they should respect Him and put Him first in their lives. Fear of the Lord requires awe, reverence, adoration, honor, worship, faith, trust, thankfulness and love.  We teach these to our children not just by word but by example. Share Jesus, the greatest gift of all, with your children.

God Isn’t Finished with You Yet

Philippians 1 6.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Philippians 1:6

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

 

Have you ever felt like it was taking way too long for God to change you? You might even have wished you could rush God into changing you over night.  We all do, but it doesn’t happen that way. You need to be confident that in His way and in His timing He is changing you. We know this because He always finishes what He starts, so when you feel like you’re not changing fast enough, have faith and trust that God is still working on you.

Faith Over Fear 

Psalm 56 3

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 56:3

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

The devil will use fear to keep you from the plans God has for your life.  He knows if he keeps putting doubts and fear in your mind you will never step out in faith to achieve what God has planned for you.   Turn to God, put your trust in Him alone.  When you are afraid, step out in faith knowing that God will never lead you in the wrong direction.  Don’t let fear keep you from living the life God has planned for you.

Be Generous

Proverbs 11 25.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 11:25

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

 

Be kind and generous to others because God has been kind and generous to you.  When you’re generous to the poor God will always make sure you are taken care of.  Trust in God’s promises and help those in need.

Helper

Psalm 54 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 54:4

Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.

 

Throughout the Bible there are stories of people who were in really bad situations but they made it through because they trusted in the Lord.  God is the same yesterday, today and forever.  He is still the helper to those who put their faith, hope and trust in Him.

The Impossible

Psalm 84 12.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 84:12

Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.

 

As a wife, mother and grandmother I do my best to take care of my family as much as is possible.  There are some things that are out of my control and for me they are impossible, those, I leave to God.  Through prayer, supplication and faith I put my trust in the Lord Almighty who deals in making the impossible possible.  Do the possible and trust God for the impossible.

Trust with All Your Heart

Proverbs 3 5 b

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

 

There are going to be times when you say, “God, I don’t understand why this is happening.”  Those are the times you have to accept that you will not understand everything God is doing and you just have to trust that everything He does is done out of love for you.
