Lord Jesus, it’s so gracious of You to forgive my sins and errors.  So wonderful we can have a fresh beginning, You motivate our hearts.

 

Stronger

He increased His people greatly, And made them stronger than their enemies.” Psalm 105:24

“I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, And find out knowledge and discretion. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am understanding, I have strength.” Proverbs 8:12, 14

Yet the righteous will hold to his way, And he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.” Job 17:9

 

Leads To Life

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.

“Because narrow is the gate and Difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Jesus teaches in Matthew 7:13-14 (NKJV).

“In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.” Proverbs 12:28.

Don’t give up when Life is tough, rather, expect toughness. Victoria Osteen said on TBN when she starts to get down, she changes her thinking; I pop in a Worship CD.

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, (producing patience)” James 1:1. It definitely helps to have a sense of humor and a friend.

 

 

We Are Humbled

We had this discussion that when God blesses us, we’re humbled because it’s something we couldn’t achieve on our own.  Also, when we humble ourselves before God; repentant, asking for mercy and forgiveness, we’re totally humbled knowing only He could make us renewed. Praise God!

“But seek first, the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” says Jesus in Matthew 6:33.

“Restore to me the joy of Your salvation.” Psalm 51:12, David cries.

Fullness

“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Philippians 4:11-12 (NIV).

Psalm 16:11, “…In Your presence is the fullness of joy…”

2 Corinthians 12:9, “And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Dear Lord Jesus, Your presence and provision surpass all our wants and needs.
