Lord, I thank you for all that you do for me. Although it seems
that I am ungrateful, let me always be aware that it is you, and
nobody but you, who loves me unconditionally.
Hatred stirreth up strife; but love covereth all sins. Proverbs 10:12
Hatred is like a disease that eats away inwardly, it may not be noticeable
outwardly. But it simmers and comes to a boil and spills. Put in some
spices of sweetness, kindness, sugar and love. Turn the heat down on
hatred, and I guarantee you it will have sweet savor to God.
And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men that
were with me saw not the vision. Daniel 10:7
As God speaks to you in life and gives you a vision or calling,
this vision is for you only. Others may not see or understand it,
because it’s personal between you and God.
When you are praying, if you are angry with someone, forgive him so
that your Father in heaven will also forgive your sins. Mark 11:25
God forgave you; shouldn’t you forgive others?
Even while you are praying, stop and forgive your brother or sister.
It may be the hardest thing you will ever have to do.
And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out
and say, “Jesus thou Son of David have mercy on me.” Mark 10:47
We may not be physically blind like this man, but sin has made us spiritually
blind. So we, to, like that man need to cry aloud, “Jesus have mercy
on me and heal me so I can see your glory and goodness and power.”
This is how God showed his love to us. He sent his one and only
Son into the world, so that we could have life through him. John 4:9-10
While we were yet in our sins, He came to save us. What a mighty God!
Who couldn’t love a God like this? This is what real love is like.
I will both lie down in peace and sleep…for thou,
Lord only, maketh me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8
Now I lay me down to sleep; I pray the Lord
my soul to keep…in perfect peace.
Let the peace that Christ gives control your thinking,
because you were all called together in one body to have peace.
Always be thankful. Colossians 3:15
Paul says when I want to do good, evil is always present. Sometimes
it’s our way of thinking that gets us in trouble. Give thanks to God
early in the morning and let that thankful spirit and attitude control you
the rest of the day. It may crowd out those negative thoughts.
