God of Glory

 

My Post-12

“When Moses came down Mount Sinai carrying the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, he wasn’t aware that his face had become radiant because he had spoken to the Lord.”  Exodus 34:29

 

Do you find yourself doing good deeds and needing recognition?  When was the last time you did something for someone and didn’t tell anyone about it?  It’s always a good thing when we become less visible so that God can become more visible.  When we seek less attention ourselves, we allow God’s love to shine through us.

God wants us to experience Him in such a way that His glory shines through us.  We are responsible for showing people Jesus in this dark world and the more we fill ourselves with the Holy Spirit, more of His light will shine through.  When God’s light shines through us, it draws people to Him.  When you spend time in the Word of God and by surrounding yourself with other Christians and guarding your heart you will receive more of the Holy Spirit.  It’s important to fill your mind and heard with the things not of this world and to let God dwell in every part of your life, all the time.

We should always do good things so that it brings honor and glory to God, not ourselves.  What good does the recognition do for us, besides make us more prideful.  The only recognition we should be searching for is from our Father in Heaven.

Lay aside your pride

My Post-8.jpg

 

Do you consider yourself a prideful person?  Or a humble person?  Prideful people are more concerned about being right than doing right.  Humble people are willing to lay down their rights for the benefit and blessing of others.  Which are you?

God has placed people in our lives who will give us Godly advice.  I know there have been a lot of times in my life where I’m given advice that I don’t necessarily want to hear.  But, as difficult as it is, it’s important that we lay down our pride.  The more pride we lay down, the more wisdom God can trust us with.  When you lay down your pride you will see all the good things that come with being humble.

God favors the humble, so let God search your heart and help you lay down your pride so you can walk out this journey clothed in humility and grace.

Crossroads

My Post

This is what the Lord says: “Stop at the crossroads and look around.  Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it.  Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls.  But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!'”

Jeremiah 6:16

Have you ever found yourself at the crossroads wondering which way you should go?  If you haven’t, at some point I’m sure you will.

God created us with the hope that we’d walk on His path.  When you get to the crossroads, you will be tempted to take the easiest path.  Always look for the road that leads to God.  God doesn’t promise us an easy journey.  He doesn’t promise us that if you take the road that leads to Him that everything will easy.  But, we’ll never regret moving in His direction because His road leads to everlasting life.  Every struggle, tear, challenge, smile, and laugh helps us become the person God has created us to be.

God will give our souls the rest it needs if we trust Him enough to let Him lead us in the direction he wants us to go.  God has given us His Word as a guide to lead you on your journey.  Walk with him down the path that leads to life.

Faithful Servant

“I will be careful to live a blameless life – when will you come to help me?  I will lead a life of integrity in my own home.” Psalm 101:2

God created us to live a life of integrity.  Faith is not about performance, and your faith shouldn’t be motivated by getting praise from people.  We will all have times where we do the right thing, and nobody is there to see it.  We need to remember that not all rewards are given to us here on earth.

Our purpose in this life is to bring honor and glory to God.  This means that it doesn’t matter about getting others approval or praises.  We should be living our life to please our Heavenly Father.  God is storing up treasures in Heaven for us and we will celebrate living lives of integrity forever in eternity with Him.

God loves us and He knows our hearts desire to honor Him.  Keep walking as his faithful servant.  It doesn’t matter what is seen by other people; God can see everything.

Tame Your Tongue

Adobe Spark-17

I’m not sure how many of you reading this have children, but if you do, have you ever noticed that if you use a harsh tone when asking your child to do something that they act out more against what you’re instructing them to do?  I’ll admit, I lose my patience a lot and I don’t always approach my children using the kindness I should, especially after I’ve already asked them to do something 3 or 4 times.  Lately though, I feel like God has been convicting me in this area.  Now I usually recognize it as soon as I say something and even more after they respond.

God has given us the gift of self-control so we should use it to tame our tongue when in conversations with others.  God knows that we will have weak moments when we will say things we regret, and He will help correct the damage your words may have caused.  It could be what you said, or the tone of voice you had when you said it.  All you have to do is confess to Him and immediately seek forgiveness from those you hurt.

In the world of social media it’s become even easier to say hurtful things.  Now that there is a screen between us and the person we’re communicating with we don’t always consider how our words will effect them, or how easily things can be misinterpreted.  It’s better to control our words than having to correct the damage caused by them.

There’s an object lesson I’ve seen that goes along with this…

Imagine you have a tube of toothpaste, and imagine that the toothpaste inside the tube consists of mean and hurtful things.  Squeeze the tube until all the toothpaste is out.  Now, try and put the toothpaste back into the tube.  You can’t.  It’s the same with your words.  You can apologize and tell someone you are sorry for what you said, or for the way you said it.  But, you can’t take it away and erase it completely.  The hurt you placed upon that person’s heart is still there, and depending on how hurtful what you said was, they may not ever forget.

It’s hard to give a gentle answer when someone makes you angry, but it’s even harder to put out a fire caused by hurtful words.  When you’re feeling angry, pray and ask God for a gentle answer.

I pray that if you’re consumed by anger that God comforts and calms you.  I pray that He gives you the ability to give gentle answers.  Amen.
