TEACH ME, O LORD, TO FOLLOW YOUR DECREES;
THEN I WILL KEEP THEM TO THE END. PSALM 119:33

ME AND LEADS ME I UNDERSTANDS HIS WILL AND THEN I CAN SAY LORD
I THANK YOU.

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God's right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.

- Colossians 3:1-2 (NLT)

we are to have our sight on heaven where Christ sits at the right hand of the Father. when we get so caught up on earthly things they take us further from the main goal, and that is giving complete control over to the Lord

Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.

- 1 John 4:11-12 (NLT)

I FIND THIS TO BE TRUE, WHEN I HAVE TROUBLE SHOWING LOVE TO SOMEONE
I KNOW HAS HURT ME, I ASK THE LORD TO HELP ME AND HE NOT ONLY HELP ME

Today’s Text and Thought of Encouragement:

“We are assured and know, that God being a partner in (our) labor, that all things work together and are fitting into a plan for good for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose.”

Romans 8:28
Amplified Bible

Turn The Carpet

“This world which cloudy thy soul with doubt
Is but a carpet inside out;
As when we view these shreds and ends,
We know not what the whole intends;
So when on earth things look but odd,
They’re working out some scheme of God.

What now seems random strokes will there
In order and design appear.
Then we shall praise what here we spurned,
For then the carpet shall be turned.”

Hannah More

Today’s Study Text:

“Then the king went to his palace and passed the night fasting; neither were instruments of music brought before him; and his sleep went from him.”

Later, Jesus was away from the people. The twelve apostles and Jesus' other followers asked him about the stories. Jesus said, "Only you can know the secret truth about the kingdom of God. But to those other people I tell everything by using stories. — Mark 4:10-11 (ERV)

I truly thank God that as we become to know Jesus more personal the more the scriptures mean to us. the secrets and new revelation unfold to us. those who do not know the Lord, will not understand.

Share each other's burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

- Galatians 6:2 (NLT) |

This is one I work at through prayer for those who share their burdens and
Where I can help also. God is so good to me and I am so thankful.

We've been studying 1 John in our women's Bible study. John talks a whole lot about God's love and our love for God and for our brother. Another way I think to test there love is to look at the fruits of their life. Do we know anything about them? Do their lives show a life of love for each other as well as for God? Or all they all talk? I don't want to get into politics here but the other day I heard one say he was a devout Christian although he constantly runs down the others in both parties. I don't want to judge him, but it doesn't sound much like love for others the way I hear him talk. If he said he had a word from God I would be very suspicious. But if it's someone I know consistently attempts to show love (even if they fail once in a while because we all do at times) and genuinely seems to be trying to generally live as Christians, then I would be more apt to believe them. I would also use the tools you mentionds.

Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false Prophets in the world.

- 1 John 4:1 (NLT

IN THIS VVE VERSE JOHN IS LETTING US KNOW THAT WE AR TO BE CAREFUL
WHEN THERE ARE PROPHETS SPEAK A WORD FROM THAT LORD WE ARE TO
TEST THE SPIRIT TO MAKE SURE THEY BE OF GOD. ONE TO THE WAYS IS IN THE
WORD OF GOD. AND ALSO TIME.


WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS emoticon
