Thursday's Dose - 30th July 2015

God’s Kindness

Today's Scripture

“I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised . . . yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses”- (Isaiah 63:7).

Thoughts for Today

Kindness is a characteristic of God. Out of His kindness He made a covenant with the nation of Israel. And out of kindness, He kept His side of this covenant while they rebelled and disobeyed.

It is out of kindness that Jesus left the splendor of heaven to become a man. It is out of kindness that He hung on a cross to die and pay the wages of our sin. Out of eternal love and kindness, He offers to us His precious gift of salvation.

But God’s kindness did not stop at the cross. It continues today in the lives of those who accept His Son as their Savior. The more we allow Him to work in us, the more His fruit becomes evident to those whose lives we touch each day.

As we continue to live and grow spiritually, there are several things we need to know about kindness. Sometimes, kindness requires putting ourselves in another person’s place. We need to view others as Christ does.

There are those of us who continually show kindness to others and yet seem to be incapable of showing kindness to ourselves. We allow past failures and sins to prevent us from growing. However, God’s forgiveness is complete. When we pray and seek His forgiveness, He gives it. Therefore, we must learn to forgive others and ourselves, too.

Kindness gives birth to kindness. Love extended leads to more love. As you begin to show kindness to others, you will be set free from feelings of self-condemnation. You will find yourself being empowered by the Holy Spirit to exercise more kindness more often.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Thank You for the kindness You have shown to me and will continue to grant me as I journey with You. As I grow in showing kindness to others, reveal to me how to show kindness to myself through forgiveness for past sins. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, 
Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

Evidence of a Humble Heart - Wednesday's Dose - 29th July 2015

Wednesday's Dose - 29th July 2015

Evidence of a Humble Heart

Today's Scripture

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you. … Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man” - (Proverbs 3:3-4).

Thoughts for Today

George MacDonald once said, “To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved.” Take a moment to think through this statement.

You can love a person, but do you trust that person with your life, your heart, and all that is included in your life? Many times, we are careful to say the right things and not allow those around us to see who we really are. We don’t want people to see our flaws or to know about our failures because we think they may not love or approve of us.

Faithfulness is an even deeper issue because it requires standing firm even when we may not agree with the popular view. It also means being loyal to Christ and following His precepts even when the world’s view is anything but His.

Today, faithfulness is viewed as an old-fashioned word. Many times, we find words like team player, champion, leadership potential, and high energy have replaced words like faithful as an important factor in the employment world. If you step into a marketing meeting of a large corporation, more than likely faithful will not be a buzzword used for a new campaign.

There was a time when a man’s word was his bond—when trustworthiness was more important than wealth, fame, or popularity. It seems that the days are gone when promises were kept and friends were faithful.

Yet God calls each one of us to be faithful to Him and to one another. Faithfulness is evidence of a humble heart that is turned toward God in adoration and devotion.

Are you seeking to be faithful to God? Learn to be faithful and His love and goodness will also flow from your life.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, show me how to be faithful to You, as Your Son was on earth. Teach me how to stand firm in places where I have compromised. I want to give my all for You and not be distracted by earthly things. Thank You that Your Holy Spirit alone can do this in me.
Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.

Display God’s fruit of the Spirit - Tuesday's Dose - 28th July 2015

Tuesday's Dose - 28th July 2015

Display God’s fruit of the Spirit

Today's Scripture

“Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires” - (Galatians 5:24).

Thoughts for Today

It is easy to view the fruit of the Spirit as part of a nice Sunday school lesson. We read through Paul’s words in Galatians and think that he is writing about how we should live the Christian life and how we should relate to others.

This is true, but there is a deeper lesson to learn from applying the fruit of the Spirit to our lives. For example, when trials and difficulties come, the fruit of God’s Spirit are the very tools that will help us deal properly with these and much more.

However, if God’s fruit has not matured in our lives, there will be even more problems for us to face. We see the evidence of this in how we demonstrate our love for others. Many times, we fail to love the way Christ loves us.

We can still be abrupt, harsh, or unforgiving even though we know that God calls us, and even commands us, to love others the way He loves us. In fact, we are to love and have a sense of joy and peace within our lives so much that others want the same for their lives. We are also to be patient because God is patient with us, and we are to be kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled. Each of these reflects the true nature of God and His grace toward us.

Refuse to take satan’s bait by becoming angry, frustrated, or bitter over life’s blows. Instead, seek to display God’s fruit of the Spirit and know that you will be blessed.

Prayer:Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me so well. I give you the areas of my life where I have failed to love others because of frustration or selfishness. Cleanse my heart daily, that I may freely give grace to others as You do.Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.

Align Your Action with God’s Word - Sunday's Dose - 26th July 2015

Sunday's Dose - 26th July 2015

Align Your Action with God’s Word

Today's Scripture

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” - (Hebrews 11:6).

Thoughts for Today

As we pursue God, we discover a difficult truth: Living out the principles in the Bible is not as easy as we may think. Loving God and loving our neighbor sound like simple enough commands, but when it actually comes to showing love to a difficult neighbor, our true colors begin to show. We must ask ourselves if we truly love God as much as we say we do.

Throughout the New Testament, Jesus revolted against the notion that being religious meant you loved God. The piety of the Pharisees was a mockery of what it meant truly to follow God—and Jesus went to extremes to prove this. In explaining this fact, Jesus said, “A tree is recognized by its fruit. . . . Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:33, 34).

Regardless of our best intentions, sometimes our actions don’t align with our words, and our inaction keeps us from bearing fruit. While we know we should follow God and trust Him in every situation, we can succumb to worry and anxiety. Instead of placing our faith in Him, we panic and try to solve the situation ourselves.

While God has patience for an eternity, He does not want us to remain broken down along the roadside while we try to repair our faith. His desire for us is that we would be ever nearing a place of greater faith and unity with Him. But that process is delayed when our actions are not aligned with God’s Word.

As people committed to following God, we must learn that believing means taking action. It means that we take God’s Word for what it truly is: His Word. The Bible is the foundation of what we believe—and we must strive to live accordingly.

Prayer:Our Loving Heavenly Father, help me to live out Your Word today in everything I do. Help me to love with my actions, not just my words.
Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.

Choose Right Over Wrong - Saturday's Dose - 25th July 2015

Saturday's Dose - 25th July 2015

Choose Right Over Wrong

Today's Scripture

“Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control” - (2 Peter 1:5-6).

Thoughts for Today

A father asked his daughter, who spent too much time watching television, to begin memorizing Scripture. He chose the verses in Galatians concerning the fruit of the Spirit as a place for her to begin.

When she was sure she had reached her goal, she began to list the fruit of the Spirit to her Dad, “Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and remote control!”

When it comes to the subject of self-control, many of us would like to dodge the issue. Maybe we would like to think there is a way to put our minds, wills, and emotions under God’s “remote control.” Instead of having to take responsibility for our actions and decisions, we think it would be easier for God simply to control us.

However, God has a more creative plan in mind, and in Christ, He has given us the ability to choose right over wrong and self-control over emotional impulse.

Paul warns:

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. ... Be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything (Ephesians 5:15-20).

Don’t set your heart on having a “remote control” attitude. Dig deep into God’s Word. Learn what it means to be self-controlled. Pray that you always will reflect His love and self-control to others whose lives are spinning out of control.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, I thank You that You are a gentle God. Show me how to live by the Spirit You have so graciously given me. Help me to take responsibility for my actions and live in the fullness of Christ, so that You may be glorified.
Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
