Good Morning! Be strong!!
We are half way through the week, Bible study is tonight, we have another day of God’s blessings!
“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Cor. 16:13-14.
Sometimes we encounter things and people that can discourage us. Be strong, God loves you and has promised to reward us for doing the right thing in spite of those around us.
Sometimes we are corrected and don’t like it much. Be strong. Yes, sometimes our shortcomings are pointed out and it is uncomfortable, but we need to consider information in the light of God’s Word.
But through it all, we take our stand on the Word, it is the truth that will make us free (Jn. 8:32). Be strong. Spend enough time with it to know what it says and how it applies to us. Be strong in the knowledge of His Word.
We also need to take responsibility for our action, or act like grown-ups. Be strong. Too many of us always look for someone else to blame. We don’t like to admit our faults, but we must in order to be forgiven (1 Jn. 1:9)
And finally, make sure your approach to everything is immersed in the love that God demonstrates toward us and we share with others.
Be strong! Hang in there!
God bless and have a great day!!
