Throughout life and its challenges, God has revealed stuff to me and it has gone a long way in helping and continues to help me become better each day. It’s a journey and it’s never ending so you keep learning as long as you live.
*God is the beginning and end of life; you can do so little without Him. Even when you are or think you are succeeding, its vain success without God. (John 5:30 I can do nothing on my own ….NLT)
*God uses those the world misuses and rejects. He uses the seemingly foolish things to confound the wise! (1 Cor 1:27 ‘Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful…’NLT)
* If it aint really your business, shut up. You don’t always have to have an opinion even if you have 120% reasons to. (Mat 12:36 ‘And I tell you this; you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. ‘NLT)
*Fear and faith cannot live in the same heart or mind. One will suffocate the other. (2 Tim 1:7 ‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. ‘NLT)
*Righteousness, peace and joy is the sequence, you can’t have joy without peace and you can’t have peace without righteousness. There is no vice versa about it. (Rom14:17 ‘For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.’ NLT).
*You can’t runaway from your giant. It must be confronted. Confronting your giant teaches you new strategies for becoming a greater warrior! Until you kill your own giant, you’ll never become what God has called you to be. (Psalm 91:13-14 13 ‘ You will trample upon lions and cobras you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! 14 The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name’NLT.)
* Life’s battle is either lost or won first in the mind. (Prov 4:23 23 ‘Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life.’NLT)
*Don’t cover up your mistakes. Shout out for help. It will do you good.( Psalm 139:23 -24 23 ‘Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.24 Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.’NLT)
