MONDAY ENCOURAGEMENTS //. ⁣
Give us a👍if you agree!⁣

How often do you feel unqualified for a task at hand? ⁣

I certainly have many many times! BUT as I reflect back, I am filled with such gratitude 🥰 because the truth is...God always goes before me and paves the path! This is true for all of us ❤️😇.⁣

There are many moments where I’ve experienced blessings that I feel unqualified for or undeserving of, but then am reminded that it is not me...but Him who opens doors! ⁣

Activating faith takes courage & trust! ⁣

Don’t be afraid to step out and take risks, the God who goes before you will ALWAYS come through 🥰! #teamgratitea

The enemy was trying to feed me some lies last night. He went too far and I saw him. I saw him trying to twist the dreams and desires that I have from God undermine the path of obedience that I am on.
•••••
It starts with such an innocent entry point.
It looks like what and who I am.
But little attitudes and thoughts that are dissonant with the Word send up red flags.
And then I know that it is not from God but from the enemy.
•••••
Which is why it's so important for me to know the Word.
•••••
Do you know the Word so well that you can compare every thought and feeling in an instant to what He has declared is Truth?
•••••
Line in the sand that Jesus drew:
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly." John 10:10 ESV
•••••
Symptoms of the Spirit:
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control"
Galatians 5:22‭-‬23 ESV
•••••
You wouldn't be following this account if you didn't want to know Jesus more, which makes me SO STOKED on you! Your heart to have stronger faith is not only encouraging yup everyone around you, but will only bring LIGHT to your life!
So here's to spending quality time with our Creator today!

Many think that when God comforts us, our troubles should go away. But if that were always so, people would turn to God only out of a desire to be relieved of pain and not out of love for him. We must understand that being comforted can also mean receiving strength, encouragement, and hope to deal with our troubles. The more we suffer, the more comfort God gives us. If you are feeling overwhelmed, allow God to comfort you. Remember that every trial you endure will help you comfort other people who are suffering similar troubles.

Sometimes in life you will walk through fire. Sometimes you will stand in pouring rain. Sometimes the one who is closest, will be the first to blemish your name. But remember, there was one who walked here before you, and He knows every step of the way. | May the Lord fill you with His grace and May His unending joy be your strength. ᕱ

After the disciples had gathered around Him [Jesus], He got up and went back into the city. The next day He [Jesus] and Barnabas left for Derbe. They [Jesus and Barnabas] preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God," they said.”” -Acts 14:20-22 ᕱ

Go look at the Hebrew meaning of “heart”, it gives a lot of perspective to much of the Bible.

This ‘belief’ is in every aspect of your being. If that is true, the second part of professing with your mouth is much easier.

#Repost @ourdailybread with @repostsaveapp ・・・ Daily Devotion: Don’t Feed the Trolls⁣

The Bible in One Year: Proverbs 25–26; 2 Corinthians 9⁣

Make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace. Colossians 4:5–6⁣

Ever heard the expression, “Don’t feed the trolls”? “Trolls” refers to a new problem in today’s digital world—online users who repeatedly post intentionally inflammatory and hurtful comments on news or social media discussion boards. But ignoring such comments—not “feeding” the trolls—makes it harder for them to derail a conversation.⁣

Of course, it’s nothing new to encounter people who aren’t genuinely interested in productive conversation. “Don’t feed the trolls” could almost be a modern equivalent of Proverbs 26:4, which warns that arguing with an arrogant, unreceptive person risks stooping to their level.⁣

And yet . . . even the most seemingly stubborn person is also a priceless image-bearer of God. If we’re quick to dismiss others, we may be the ones in danger of being arrogant and becoming unreceptive to God’s grace (see Matthew 5:22).⁣

That might, in part, explain why Proverbs 26:5 offers the exact opposite guideline. Because it takes humble, prayerful dependence on God to discern how best to show others love in each situation (see Colossians 4:5–6). Sometimes we speak up; other times, it’s best to be silent.⁣

May we find peace in knowing that the same God who drew us near while we were still in hardened opposition to Him (Romans 5:6) is powerfully at work in each person’s heart.⁣

—MONICA BRANDS⁣

How have you witnessed very different approaches being used by God to touch others? How can you better speak the truth in love?⁣

Loving God, help me share Your love with others around me.⁣

#Repost @ourdailybread with @repostsaveapp ・・・ Daily Devotion: Unity⁣

The Bible in One Year: Proverbs 22–24; 2 Corinthians 8⁣

Today's Bible Reading: Ephesians 4:1–6⁣

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:3⁣

In 1722 a small group of Moravian Christians, who lived in what is now the Czech Republic, found refuge from persecution on the estate of a generous German count. Within four years, more than 300 people came. But instead of an ideal community for persecuted refugees, the settlement became filled with discord. Different perspectives on Christianity brought division. What they did next may seem like a small choice, but it launched an incredible revival: They began to focus on what they agreed on rather than on what they disagreed on. The result was unity.⁣

The apostle Paul strongly encouraged the believers in the church in Ephesus to live in unity. Sin would always bring trouble, selfish desires, and conflict in relationships. But as those who were made “alive with Christ” the Ephesians were called to live out their new identity in practical ways (Ephesians 5:2).

This unity isn’t just simple camaraderie achieved through human strength. We are to “be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love” (v. 2). From a human perspective, it’s impossible to act in this way. We can’t reach unity through our own power but through God’s perfect power “that is at work within us” (3:20). ⁣

How are you experiencing division or unity in your community of faith? What efforts can you make in God’s strength to keep the unity of the Spirit?⁣

Father, You who are over all and through all and in all, live among us in such a way that unity will be present.⁣

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:3⁣
⁣
In 1722 a small group of Moravian Christians, who lived in what is now the Czech Republic, found refuge from persecution on the estate of a generous German count. Within four years, more than 300 people came. But instead of an ideal community for persecuted refugees, the settlement became filled with discord. Different perspectives on Christianity brought division. What they did next may seem like a small choice, but it launched an incredible revival: They began to focus on what they agreed on rather than on what they disagreed on. The result was unity.⁣
⁣
The apostle Paul strongly encouraged the believers in the church in Ephesus to live in unity. Sin would always bring trouble, selfish desires, and conflict in relationships. But as those who were made “alive with Christ” the Ephesians were called to live out their new identity in practical ways (Ephesians 5:2). Primarily, they were to “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (4:3).⁣

“For God speaks in one way, and in two, though man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, while they slumber on their beds, then he opens the ears of men and terrifies them with warnings, that he may turn man aside from his deed and conceal pride from a man; he keeps back his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword.”

Ever heard the expression, “Don’t feed the trolls”? “Trolls” refers to a new problem in today’s digital world—online users who repeatedly post intentionally inflammatory and hurtful comments on news or social media discussion boards. But ignoring such comments—not “feeding” the trolls—makes it harder for them to derail a conversation.

Of course, it’s nothing new to encounter people who aren’t genuinely interested in productive conversation. “Don’t feed the trolls” could almost be a modern equivalent of Proverbs 26:4, which warns that arguing with an arrogant, unreceptive person risks stooping to their level.

And yet . . . even the most seemingly stubborn person is also a priceless image-bearer of God. If we’re quick to dismiss others, we may be the ones in danger of being arrogant and becoming unreceptive to God’s grace (see Matthew 5:22). That might, in part, explain why Proverbs 26:5 offers the exact opposite guideline. Because it takes humble, prayerful dependence on God to discern how best to show others love in each situation (see Colossians 4:5–6). Sometimes we speak up; other times, it’s best to be silent.

May we find peace in knowing that the same God who drew us near while we were still in hardened opposition to Him (Romans 5:6) is powerfully at work in each person’s heart. #dailybibleverse #dailyscripture #biblestudy #dailybread #bedsidebaber 🙏🏽

Daily scripture reading:

Exodus 19:16-20 New International Version (NIV)

16 On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled. 17 Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. 18 Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain[a] trembled violently. 19 As the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him.[b]

20 The Lord descended to the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses to the top of the mountain. So Moses went up

Footnotes:

Exodus 19:18 Most Hebrew manuscripts; a few Hebrew manuscripts and Septuagint and all the people
Exodus 19:19 Or and God answered him with thunder
—————————-
Psalm 104:31-32 New International Version (NIV)

31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works—
32 he who looks at the earth, and it trembles, who touches the mountains, and they smoke.

Hey Revealers! One should listen to other perspectives, but also one must have a reliable perspective. .
When we are denied something we want, we can so easily rationalize or accept a teaching that gives us what we want. .
So be very careful when looking at different perspectives. Always think of why you are looking for a different perspective.

Daily Devotion: Whatever the Cost⁣

The Bible in One Year: Proverbs 19–21; 2 Corinthians 7⁣

Today's Bible Reading: John 12:37–43⁣

They would not openly acknowledge their faith for fear. John 12:42⁣

The film Paul, Apostle of Christ takes an unflinching look at persecution in the early days of the church. Even the movie’s minor characters reveal how dangerous it was to follow Jesus. Consider these roles listed in the credits: Beaten Woman; Beaten Man; Christian Victims 1, 2, and 3.⁣

Identifying with Christ often came at a high cost. And in much of the world, it’s still dangerous to follow Jesus. Many in the church today can relate to that kind of persecution. Some of us, however, may feel “persecuted” prematurely—outraged any time our faith is mocked or we suspect we were passed over for a promotion because of our beliefs.⁣

Obviously, there’s a colossal difference between sacrificing social status and sacrificing our lives. Realistically, though, self-interest, financial stability, and social acceptance have always been intense human motivators. We see this in the actions of some of Jesus’s earliest converts. The apostle John reports that, mere days before Jesus’s crucifixion, although most Israelites were still rejecting Him (John 12:37), many “even among the leaders believed” (v. 42). However, “They would not openly acknowledge their faith . . . for they loved human praise more than praise from God” (vv. 42–43).⁣

Today we still face societal pressures (and worse) to keep our faith in Christ hidden. Whatever the cost, let’s stand together as a people who seek God’s approval more than human praise.⁣

—TIM GUSTAFSON⁣

We might be tempted to judge the early believers who hid their faith, but are we any different? Are there times we choose to be quiet so we can hide our identification with Jesus?⁣

Jesus, I want to be a close friend of Yours.⁣

Let’s talk priorities.✅ So many of us feel spread too thin, overcommitted, and burnt out from putting so much energy into so many things. When we have a lot of “good things” going on, it can be difficult to discern which of the “good things” are God’s will. The Holy Spirit wants us to depend on Him for everything and go to Him first concerning all things, but many of us put our relationship with Him secondary to everything else in our lives. When we make God our second thought, we rob ourselves of being able to discern what’s most important. The truth is that not every opportunity is our destiny and not every “good thing” is worth being a priority. If we aren’t careful, distraction will come into our lives DISGUISED AS OPPORTUNITY and pull us away from God’s will. So what’s the solution? Prioritize your relationship with God and He will show you what to make your priority.
“Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the LORD. “ You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the LORD of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house.”
‭‭Haggai‬ ‭1:7-9‬ “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭ •

Daily Devotion: Don’t Feed the Trolls⁣

The Bible in One Year: Proverbs 25–26; 2 Corinthians 9⁣

Make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace. Colossians 4:5–6⁣

Ever heard the expression, “Don’t feed the trolls”? “Trolls” refers to a new problem in today’s digital world—online users who repeatedly post intentionally inflammatory and hurtful comments on news or social media discussion boards.

That might, in part, explain why Proverbs 26:5 offers the exact opposite guideline. Because it takes humble, prayerful dependence on God to discern how best to show others love in each situation (see Colossians 4:5–6). Sometimes we speak up; other times, it’s best to be silent.⁣

May we find peace in knowing that the same God who drew us near while we were still in hardened opposition to Him (Romans 5:6) is powerfully at work in each person’s heart.⁣

How have you witnessed very different approaches being used by God to touch others? How can you better speak the truth in love?⁣

Loving God, help me share Your love with others around me.⁣

Daily Devotion: Don’t Feed the Trolls⁣
⁣
The Bible in One Year: Proverbs 25–26; 2 Corinthians 9⁣
⁣
Make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace. Colossians 4:5–6⁣
⁣
Ever heard the expression, “Don’t feed the trolls”? “Trolls” refers to a new problem in today’s digital world—online users who repeatedly post intentionally inflammatory and hurtful comments on news or social media discussion boards. But ignoring such comments—not “feeding” the trolls—makes it harder for them to derail a conversation.⁣
⁣
Of course, it’s nothing new to encounter people who aren’t genuinely interested in productive conversation. “Don’t feed the trolls” could almost be a modern equivalent of Proverbs 26:4, which warns that arguing with an arrogant, unreceptive person risks stooping to their level.⁣
⁣
And yet . . . even the most seemingly stubborn person is also a priceless image-bearer of God. If we’re quick to dismiss others, we may be the ones in danger of being arrogant and becoming unreceptive to God’s grace (see Matthew 5:22).⁣

Daily Devotion: Unity⁣

The Bible in One Year: Proverbs 22–24; 2 Corinthians 8⁣

Today's Bible Reading: Ephesians 4:1–6⁣

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:3⁣

In 1722 a small group of Moravian Christians, who lived in what is now the Czech Republic, found refuge from persecution on the estate of a generous German count. Within four years, more than 300 people came. But instead of an ideal community for persecuted refugees, the settlement became filled with discord. Different perspectives on Christianity brought division. What they did next may seem like a small choice, but it launched an incredible revival: They began to focus on what they agreed on rather than on what they disagreed on. The result was unity.⁣

The apostle Paul strongly encouraged the believers in the church in Ephesus to live in unity. Sin would always bring trouble, selfish desires, and conflict in relationships. But as those who were made “alive with Christ” the Ephesians were called to live out their new identity in practical ways (Ephesians 5:2). Primarily, they were to “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (4:3).⁣

This unity isn’t just simple camaraderie achieved through human strength. We are to “be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love” (v. 2). From a human perspective, it’s impossible to act in this way. We can’t reach unity through our own power but through God’s perfect power “that is at work within us” (3:20). ⁣

How are you experiencing division or unity in your community of faith? What efforts can you make in God’s strength to keep the unity of the Spirit?⁣

Father, You who are over all and through all and in all, live among us in such a way that unity will be present.⁣
