5 Verses Jesus Offers Life

We all want life! A life of goodness, love, joy, and peace. But some folks are suffering through life – not receiving all they expect life to be. I read a poster recently that said: “Life has taught me to never expect anything from anyone.”

That’s a sad statement. Sounds like whoever said that is desolate. They have no one to help them through life’s journey. They feel lonesome.

Do you feel lonesome?

Do you lack goodness, love, joy, and peace?

Jesus can change all that!

TRUST GOD’S TIMING

It’s common in society to want things now. We live in the present, consumed by current events, with no idea why the present is what it is, or, what comes next. This live-for-today practice leads to quick decision making to achieve immediate change. It seems mankind wears blinders, unable to take in all that goes on around us and why. But not God – He sees it all.

His plan for history is laid out, sort of like stepping stones. If we simply place all trust in Him and follow the stones, onestep at a time, we have the to ability reach the goodness He planned for us.

It’s about trusting God’s timing.

Let Us Praise Him! – 4 PRAISE GOD Bible Verses

Some times it’s hard to praise God during difficult times. But as Christians, when those difficult times arise, we should not be muttering, “Poor me.” Rather, these are the times we should be wondering, “God, how am I to react and learn from this?”

Truth is the devil tries to block our path 24/7. He wants us to blame God for every hang nail, empty bank account, every spouse fight and every sick child.

The devil’s not happy unless we are unhappy.

Thankfully, Jesus told us exactly what to do when confronted by satan.

5 Selected Bible Verses – How To Follow Jesus

The life of Jesus, in His three years of ministry on earth, was absolutely pure. He actions and reactions, to those blessed to be in His presence, were the perfect example of how one leads a God centered life.

Thankfully, for those of us not of that time in Israel, Jesus’ words for salvation and life were transferred onto parchment.

In the book of Matthew a young man asked Jesus how to get to heaven. Jesus responded with Moses’ Ten Commandments, which the man accepted, but then Jesus’ final portion of His answer made this young man sad.

Pray Over Your Bad Day – 5 Bible Verses

Bad days happen to all of us. They are unavoidable. They quite often contain situations beyond our control. It’s what believers do on bad days (actually we are to do it everyday), that sets us apart from the world. We acknowledge our smallness.

We proclaim God is in control and we live on earth, not in heaven.

To think one has a choice in all of life’s situations is false. Heartache, disease, and unemployment can appear out of nowhere. One may leave home with their head high and a smile on their face, but return feeling the world is against them.

The good news: believers have power over unexpected and unwanted days.

Are You Struggling? Remember–Christ Jesus Lives In You!

When Paul spoke to the church in Corinth he asked them a direct question. A question all believers should refer back to when facing struggles.

2 Corinthians 13:5-6 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test? And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test.

When Paul stated, “Christ Jesus is in you,” he wasn’t simply saying when one thinks of Jesus He is with you. Paul was stating biblical fact: Christ Jesus, who believers know as the savior of the world, God made flesh, the Word, the Lamb of God who literally dwells within us, within our hearts–at all times!

Don’t delay.
