Just be honest with yourself. Have you tried your capabilities to the max. Are you living your life or is your life living you? Its all about your faith perspective. Do you believe in your purpose or have you reached a point of not being as passionate about it as when you first began? Has life put you in a complacent state that causes you to declare “it is what it is?” Have you received a promise from God but since there is no evidence of change you have lost hope? I can honestly say I have reached that point several times.
In Hebrews 10:35 it advises:
Do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.
Make this declaration.
Today I purpose myself to live like I’m walking into my purpose within the next step. I accept that when Jesus said “It is finished” and got up with all power that my purpose can not be stopped by current circumstances. I will patiently endure this testing of my faith and believe that I am entitled to have life, even life more abundantly!
Don’t just take my word for it!
Recipes, instruction booklets, self help guides; all means of gathering info to teach and help yourself independently. They cause us to rely on ourselves and the experiences of others to gain knowledge and understanding. So many books. So many guides. With so much info available which one should you adhere to. Its a little bit much to constantly be self-reliant. You become your own god. What book came with a well versed instructor to guide you to becoming the best you possible?
The bible itself is the Word of God. It is the Creator’s manual. It literally has everything concerning the issues of life with a live instructor who does not hesitate to help His people. The title of the book literally reads Holy Bible. Holy means perfect and righteous. It is a synonym for dedicated. This book was literally inspired by God who is dedicated to loving us: His creation.
The truth is the Bible is not something you can read one time and have all of the answers. It is a literal everyday tool holding the keys to life. It is a constant reminder of God’s love for us. God is the ultimate advisor. He speaks to us through his Word. There is no shortage in His presence or abilities and He will never put you on hold.His word is readily available and becomes inscribed on our hearts when we read it and follow it. Proverbs 7:2a-3 advises us to “Obey my commands and live! Tie them to you finger as a reminder. Write them within your heart.
Humans were all made with the same longing for companionship. At the very least we want to know that someone somewhere is for us and not against us. In fact He finds you very important. He said in his word “I will never leave you nor will I forsake you. So we can say with confidence “The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear.”(Hebrews 13:5b-6)The most amazing thing about God is that he is not a man that he should lie nor the son of man that he has to repent.(NUMBERS 23:19)
His plan you are of good and not evil, plans that will prosper you and not harm you, to give you hope and a future.(Jeremiah 29:11) He is the only one that gives His word to last forever and mean it! What a God! If there is anything you ever need it is always nice to know you can consult with the builder.
You are invited to Enjoy Life. Its a place for believers in Christ where we accept that we don’t have to be miserable or downtrodden. Enjoy life, enjoy experiences, enjoy people, and share what you learned from that enjoyment. The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. My purpose is to give you a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10)
So what is Joy? The dictionary definition is; delight, exhilaration, great pleasure and happiness. God did not give us a mandate to toil over the work of our hands but to rejoice in the Lord always. (Philippians 4:4) The joy of the Lord is our strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)
We don’t experience this joy in our own strength, but in the fact that we serve a capable God who supplies all of our needs according to his riches in glory. (Philippians 4:19) This joy also comes from knowing that when we commit everything we do to the Lord he will give us the desires of our heart. (Psalm 37:4-5)
