After another conversation with a person I have been trying to encourage for years, I thought I would share a few things she didn’t want to hear.
God Loves YOU Daily Service: God Loves You
God is Faithful Daily Service: God is Faithful
He knows He Knows
The problem we all have is 3-part enmity against God.
1) Your flesh wants what it wants (selfish, lazy).
2) The world you walk around in is populated and ruled by
3) Satan who is the master of the Earth we walk on.
What you must do, every day, more than once or twice a week, focus on God. Look up! Your salvation draws near.
Let’s go back and look at the miracle of Peter walking on the water. Read the passage again and tell me what happened when Peter took his eyes off Jesus and looked around at his circumstances? He sank. You see by ourselves we are indeed lost in this dark and dreary valley. If we take our eyes off Jesus, we drown in the cares of this world.
Matthew 14:28-32 NKJV
And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
2 Peter 3:18
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen
Ephesians 4:23-24 AMP
And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude], And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness.
