REMEMBER "THIS TOO SHALL PASS"



Psalm 30:5 - For his Anger Endureth but a moment; in HIS Favour is LIFE: Weeping may endure for a Night, but JOY  (ALWAYS) cometh in the Morning.

Proverbs 14:12 - There is a WAY which seemeth right unto a man, but the END thereof are the ways of Death

JESUS, Is Always " ON TIME " -  Four words in this life I have learned to be TRUE.
              
                                " THIS TOO SHALL PASS "

WISDOM FOR THE ASKING



Wisdom  -  Asking
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. (James 1:5)

If any MAN lack Wisdom. There is no " IF " in the matter, for I believe we all lack wisdom to some degree.  What do I really know? How can I guide my own way? How can I direct others?  

The Word says, "Let Any Man ask of God." Lord, I now ask. Here at Thy footstool I ask to be furnished with heavenly Wisdom for this day's perplexities, yes, and for this day's simplicities; for I know I can do some very stupid things, even in plain matters, unless You - Lord keep me out of trouble.
I thank you Jesus that all I have to do is to (Ask). What Grace is this on your part, that I have only to Pray in Faith and You Will (according to your Word) give me Wisdom'.   Jesus, I thank you for that positive and expressive word "ASK." I Believe It, and I Receive It.

"Character is what You Are in the Dark."   What Determines How You Respond to the Situations and Circumstances of Life
The dictionary definitions said character is a “Complex of mental and ethical traits“, that those traits, or qualities, are “Distinctive to an Individual and that they are “Built into an Individual’s  Life.” It is those character qualities, those character traits, that determine a person’s response in any given situation   Success or failure in any situation or endeavor depends, more than anything else, on how we respond to events and circumstances.  It would follows then that it is a person’s character that determines his or her success.  Of course, that doesn’t mean that “good” people will always experience more “success” than “bad” people.  There are, however, some character traits that tend to lead to “success” and others that tend to produce “failure


"Character is what you are in the dark." D.L. Moody

Christian character is formed by our commitment to Christ. When we surrender to Christ and allow His piercing work to grow and enrich us, so that the Spirit flows.  The Keys are; spiritual discipline, motives, obedience, and persevering faith.

It is imperative that when we say we are a follower of Christ, our character and behaviors reflect Him and His call to us to the best of our abilities which includes our temperament. If we are in leadership, this is even more imperative! We demonstrate Character and integrity when we do what we say and act out what we believe; if not, we are hypocrites, and woe to us for being one (Matt. 23)!

We all have the ability to be good or be bad, to take what Christ has given us and use it, or ignore or even perverse it. This not just about our reputation and ambassadorship in Christ (2 Cor. 5:20); it is how we must be if Christ has a hold on us! It is best assessed when we seek within us what is being exhibited from us, then go before God and His Word to be better (1 Tim. 6:11; 2 Tim. 2:22).

Character is the springboard from which all we do and say in life comes. Developing Biblical character in the face of our daily life and even in adversity is essential and the proof text that we have a growing relationship with Christ! Character is not just having integrity or honesty or doing the right thing, it is not one aspect or even a few, it is a living, growing relationship in Christ which produces a synergistic combination of the fruits of the Spirit.

Character comes out from a life that is hurried, stressed, overwhelmed, and yet where promises are made and deadlines are met. It is a computation of who we are in those stressed moments. Character is not just something we put into our lives, but it is what comes out of our lives in those hurried times. It is beyond a system of values or virtue we learn from our parents, or even at church. Character is who you are to God Himself and those around you. It is the real you! The church and parents must teach it, but they cannot insure its function. That is the responsibility of our choice, a determination we make ourselves, a stand in stress that we continue to uphold.

The Word of God is our authority! Remember, our spiritual discipline, motives, obedience, and persevering faith will be the keys! All it takes is to be in love with Christ. Seek His Presence and be Persistent in your Prayers.

YOU ARE - GOD'S MASTERPIECE



BE NOT TROUBLED - The end is not yet.






Matthew 24:6 - And ye shall Hear of Wars and Rumours of Wars: see that ye BE NOT TROUBLED: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Isaiah 43:2 reminds us that when we pass through Deep Waters, God is with us.  When Trouble comes, His Presence is His Promise.

JESUS IS ALL YOU NEED



JESUS IS  (ALL) THAT YOU NEED - DAVID SAID IT ALL IN THE 23RD PSALM, LINE BY LINE.  FROM RELATIONSHIP - TO - ETERNITY.

HE'S CHECKING YOUR FAITH






Hebrew 11:1  Now Faith is being sure of what we Hope for and Certain of What we do not see.
It is Faith that determines your relationship with God.  It is Faith that grabs hold of the Truth in God's Word, and is then energized and inspired by His Holy fire.
Now Faith is not believing just (anything), It is believing ( God), resting in Him and trusting His Word.
