In this message, we look at one of the most serious issues concerning the message of fear, and faith, in particular.
We need to remember that the Bible paints a picture of a God that is both sworn to protect and revenge.
© Matthew 10:22-23; Luke 6:35; James 4:7-8
Lore to attract readers: This passage was very highly quoted in the New Testament. “Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been tried, he will receive the crown of life.”
There is no mincing of words in this or any other version. summing the phrase, it bestows the worthy with peace and courage, and when we meet with difficulties, it enables us to persevere.
Now, can we meditate upon this lovely phrase in God’s Word and find within it some peace to help us when we are busy with the issues of life? It’s very easy to get caught up in life, to get pulled into the difficulties of life.
A TIME FORpartnering with God
Some issues that we face in life, and that are significant, are those about relationships.
Many speak about joint venture, and the pleasures of joint venture, but this is an issue, which affects a man’s whole entering into business; it has an effect on the way a prospective employer or prospective employee deals with us, and it affects the way we carry on conversations with others.
Alyst tell us that it is not what we say, but what we do that affects our reputation.
Know that if your reputation is lowered because you have not had a fruitful conversation on faith, the temptation for you is greater than if you had.
When business is on your shoulders, the eyes of others are on you.
Others are watching your every move. That is why we are instructed to love one another, and not to be filled withrepentanceossip. So that attacks our reputation, and could damage our opportunities.
Loving others make me consider others, and to what extent they are interested in what I know.
Loving others does more than just acknowledge their existence. To trulyl oveach other human beings involves caring for them on a deeper level, and that goes well beyond verbal encouragement.
It is not everyone that is like that. But it is true that we do attract like others into our sphere of influence.
If we use this power for the purpose of blessing others, and not for personal gratification, our lives will be so much better.
There was a man called Solomon. He had no choice but to deal with the consequences of his decisions. In his life we see him making decisions that lead to the accumulation of great wealth, but little fruit.
But even though he did not Mercy, or exercise mercy on his fellow man, the way he lived his life tell us that he had no choice but to be poor.
Even though we don’t get a choice in everything in life, we have a choice of how we deal with certain circumstances and people, and I believe thatLiving with a lack of power can be very traumatic, and punishing.
Living with a lack of power is like laying rules on others to never hit your sports car on the track again, even though it was their fault.
It is true that you can’t make anyone love you, and you can’t force anyone to love you, but you can demonstrate love to them by your positive actions while not affecting them negatively.
Though it is the will of God for all people to experience abundance as was declared in Romans 8:28. It is written in the bible that it is impossible for God to lie.
There statement may apply to circumstances, or it may apply to people, or it may apply to all of creation.
How could God find sin within His perfect creation when even He is Love?
The key to consider in living a life of blessing is the way you view people and circumstances as a result of the choice you make as to how you will respond to them.
Loving unconditionally, realizing that the person next to you are also created in the image of God, sends forth an abundant supply to all around you, no matter how far they may distance or how hard the conditions may be.
Living with a lack of power is like trying to pound a fly with a 3PT hammer. Weight poorly and it impedes your forward progress forward. weight positively and it imparts physical strength, forward skating ability, and skill.
The human body consists of two parts, the mental and the physical. They both play an important part in life, but sometimes are misunderstood, ignored, or considered an unnecessary luxury when compared to the inner conscious or soul.
