It has been said that the GPS is like the Bible and the voice that navigates us while we are driving is like the Holy Spirit. However, unlike the GPS on our phones and in our cars, this GPS always knows exactly where we need to go. Whether there is road work, detours, or traffic, our own personal navigator will never leave us stranded anywhere or confused.
I heard these words a million times while growing up. These words came from people I loved dearly. “YOU CANNOT DO IT!” because you are too small, too skinny, too poor, people disqualified me due to my appearance. Those words were impregnated in my mind and heart and that was all that I believed and they changed me forever.
How often have we experienced worry, concern over a situation, or gone through the “what if’s” of life? Too often to count. 1 Peter 5:7, is an important reminder of how God wants us to treat our worries, concerns and anxieties. He wants us to give them ALL to Him! Yes, ALL of them!
The future...I don’t know about you but when I think about that subject I can start to feel some anxiety. From thinking about what might happen to what might NOT and everything in between. But when I think back to being a kid, I don’t remember worrying about the future the same way that I do now as an adult.
Praise delivers powerful results! If you’ve been petitioning God regarding a need in your life but have not postured yourself into a position of praising God for the answer, it just might be time for you to throw a praise party!
Did you know that your life has a purpose? Your life was never meant to be dim or dark. In fact, your life is actually supposed to be radiant. The word radiant means to glow. There is a story in the Old Testament of when Moses came down from Mt. Sinai with the 10 commandments that his face was actually glowing.
Legacy is living a life that outlives you. It refers to something handed down from the past by a ancestor or predecessor. Every person reading this is a product of someone else investing in your life. We all are standing on the shoulders of someone else.
Jesus gave His life so we’d have eternal life, so we could have a close, personal relationship with God and so we could live free on this earth, free of worry, anxiety, depression, apathy, discouragement, bitterness, pride and the list goes on.
