Seek To Honor God in All We Do
Whatever it may be, it is not what God intended for man. It is an enemy which has seized man and lives with him and haunts him in everything he does. When our hopes crush, & dreams collapse, the Grace and Love of Jesus is designed to relieve and to bring hope to us. God send His son to restore us back to everlasting life. Jesus said “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”(John 10:10)Therefore the greatest gift God ever given to mankind is Jesus. Jesus defeated the death and demons by his risen power. And the result is everlasting life and peace instead of condemnation and restlessness, acceptance rather than guilt, love in place of lust or hate, power to replace weakness, joy for mourning, beauty for ashes, hope for despair, courage in place of cowardice, and cleansing from all dirt and filth of spirit. Bible says “blessed are the dead...who die in the Lord.” Jesus is our life and will be our life forever. He is indispensable and He is all-sufficing. He is our joy unspeakable and full of glory. Without every other we may live, but without Him we cannot.
What we do today, determines where we will stand tomorrow and the person who makes the best use of time today gets the best of life in the future. Time has created kings as well as beggars. Riches turn into rags and rags to riches over a matter of time. Every work that we do requires time and time cannot be negotiated or replaced. The best use of time will most likely give you the best in life. Some things in life are beyond our control and we need to make up for things before things run out of time.
Time management involves carefully analyzing how we currently spend every minute of our day and then determining ways we can make better use of those minutes. This often includes eliminating many or all of the time wasters that each of us must contend with on a daily basis. It also involves learning to set priorities.
Every second we have in life is a gift from God. Has it ever occurred to you that for you to cease living, God would not have to take your life? All God would have to do is stop giving you time. “Your time is in His hands.” You are a steward of the time He has given you. We have 86,400 seconds in a day no more, no less. Our responsibility today is evaluate the day. How do we redeem our 86,400 seconds each day to the glory of God? Are you lagging behind God or running ahead of Him?
“Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God's presence.” Ephesians 3:12
There are trials in life that we immediately recognize as too large and too difficult to face on our own. They are beyond our resources and scope of influence, and they threaten to consume those things that are most important to us. The Father allows these struggles to shake our confidence to show us that "the battle is not yours but God's" (2 Chr. 20:15). He understands that it is only when we see His faithful character and leadership exhibited in our biggest challenges that we learn to trust Him with every aspect of our lives.
The Church is exploding in Asia. There are many examples of miracles, works, and powers happening in these places and they are genuine. As the future unfolds, one of the most needed of the spiritual gifts will be that of discernment. Pastors, teachers, elders, and others in positions of spiritual authority will need to be deeply educated in the criteria of discernment, or at least in recognizing those who have this gift, even in its embryonic forms. Anytime there is a period of increased Holy Spirit activity, and this is without a doubt one of those times, the potential for the Great Deceiver to lead many astray is great. We live in an age that is ripe for deception. Trained, gifted discerners are in critical need.
Hebrews 13:6 promises, " So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? The word “fear” doesn’t mean terror. We are not to be afraid of the Lord. The word “fear” is translated reverence. We are to reverence the Lord, have an attitude of deep respect and love. The scripture says, “In the reverence of the Lord is STRONG CONFIDENCE”. Not a weak and wavering confidence but a confidence that is strong and that will not give up when the pressures of live come.
Share knowledge with others
“Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”( Galatians 6:2 )
It brings happiness to accumulate. It brings joy to give away. Sure, getting the car you worked hard for will bring you a sense of satisfaction and even happiness. But it won't bring you joy. Giving something away to the less fortunate will bring you deep, abiding joy. Too many people are running around this old earth not caring about others. The days of "Look Out for Number One" and "Winning through Intimidation" are over! Let's bring about a new day when we can care about others and succeed! Take the time to show people you care. Listen to them. Empathize with them. Love them. Now, I don't mean that you have to go around hugging everyone—but we can take some time to step back from business and be human! when we do so, our business succeeds as well!
