Some things to think about today

When Adam and Eve sinned they began living according to their mind, will and body instead of by the Spirit.

Jn 4:24 says God is Spirit.

Satan's goal is to always separate you from God. How is he doing that in your life right now? Satan is eternally separated from God and he wants company. Are you willing to be his company? Satan knew the love of God, he knows what he is missing. Are you willing to live outside of God's love? What choices are you making daily to be sure that doesn't happen?

1Jh 1:9 says If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

We must freely admit we have sinned. We must own up to our sin. that is how we receive forgiveness.

Lk 22:40 And when He was at the place, He said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

We must daily seek Him moment by moment to not sin. The devil doesn't need but a moment to tempt us. And you know that he won't advertise who he sent to you to tempt you.

1 Pet 5:7 Castin all your care upon Him for He careth for you.

Who cares for you? the devil or God? Who are you seeking? Who are you going to in times of need? Are you obeying what God tells you to do when you seek Him? If you sin against someone or do something you know is wrong, you aren't done with that thing or situation until you truly repent and make that thing right, with God and the person you have sinned against. God won't let you move on till you do. Stuck in a situation you don't like? What have you missed in making it right? Have you TRULY repented or just paid lip service? You may fool people with lip service but you WON'T fool God.

Is 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.

Have you exchanged your problem for God's peace through prayer? Then why did you pick the problem back up?

Lk 22:42 Saying, Father, if Thou be willing, remove this cup from Me: nevertheless not My will , but Thine, be done.

This scripture tells me I can do nothing of myself. I only should do what God tells me to do.

Jesus changed the world everywhere He went. Do you?

Jesus didn't die for you to live a good life. He died so you could live and do God's will.

Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you and expected end.

Eph 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

You were saved for God's purpose not your own. We need to live our life accordingly.
