Waiting and Listening

Isaiah 26:8

Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.


When we walk God's way, we learn to wait on His direction for our next turn. When we walk according to our own terms, we forget to listen for God. Allow your heart, mind and spirit to always be led by God and He will always direct your path.

Victory Is Mine!

1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.


Victory, joy and happiness are yours when you know it could have only come from Jesus Christ. Let's face it, we are up against touch economic times that affect not just our finances, but our health, our mind set, and even our will to succeed at times. But, if you keep just a glimpse of your victory in your sight, you will continue to work hard to see your way through. Remember it is the Jesus in you that gives you the victory!

Seek Divine Direction

James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.


Wisdom from people will only get you so far; but Divine wisdom is intended to give you direction to soar. If you find yourself needing to make a decision in your life, don't start with Google search because Google wasn't there when you were formed. Only God who created you can direct your paths because only He knows what you can handle. Today, seek Divine direction.

The Last Laugh

Job 8:21

"He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy."


It is an awesome feeling to be able to look back over your life and laugh at some of the obstacles you overcame, which at that time seemed impossible to achieve. An even more awesome feeling is being able to laugh at whatever is standing in your way right now, because if you can laugh at it, then it's not big enough to scare you. When you approach difficulty with complete joy, knocking it down will be just that much easier to do and you will have the last laugh!

It’s A Secret For A Reason

Deuteronomy 29:29

The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.


It's a secret for a reason! If we knew God's plans for our lives, then we wouldn't appreciate the process of growing in the Lord. During the process, we ought to grow in faith, love and trust so that when He is ready to reveal His miracle in our lives, we will be able to look back and see how much we've grown. Not only is God watching, but so are our children. Let them be a witness to your faith and they will imitate that behavior.

Our Differences Strengthens Us

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!


The reason no two people are the same is because we need differences to sharpen one another. If all of us knew the exact same thing there would be no need to encourage one another. Therefore, find out who sharpens you and together, devise a plan that will bring the both of you up. Together, you will be advanced and with God, you will continue to grow.
