Don’t you know that you yourselves ￼are God’s temple and God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 1 Corinthians 3:16 NIV
Everyday I say I am going to exercise, but something comes up and I don’t. I say to my friends, “I need encouragement.” But I find that what I truly need is, a conversation with God, asking Him for wisdom and discipline.
“Lord give me the discipline to make wise choices about what I drink and eat. And help me to make exercise a priority. Amen
Saints, your physical shells house the very spirit of God, what are you doing with the house God gave you?
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
(3 John 1:2 NIV)
We spend a lot of time exercising, getting our hair done, teeth cleaned, eating healthy, and just plain ole making sure everything looks right outwardly for the world to see.
By the same token, we also must make sure that we are taking care of ourselves spiritually too. “ God wants us to prosper and loves for us to be in good health, even as our souls prosper. If we really think about that, we have to conclude that the health of our soul is even more important than our physical health.
Dear God, help me to stay focused and to keep my eyes on You. Help me to spend more time reading Your Word so that my soul is healthy. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
What are you going to do to help you spend more time with God?
To live the Christian life is to allow Jesus to live His life in and through you. (Galatians 2:20￼￼)
God has a special purpose for your life, and the most important thing you can ever do is simply to obey Him, no matter what He tells you to do.
Lord, it’s not easy to live a Christian life , but I know that with Your help I can do all things. I pray that you forgive me when I fall short and continue to walk with me until I get it right. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen
What has God Called you to do that you have not started yet? And when do you plan to begin?
When Jesus was on the cross, one of his prayers was a direct quotation from Psalms 22:1, “About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lama sanachthani?’ which means, My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?“￼ Matthew 27:46
The thing is this Saints, “Jesus Christ knew more about feeling forsaken by God than we ever will, but in His case, it was more than a feeling. For a brief moment, our sinless Savior became sin for us
(2 Cor. 5:21).
Jesus, experienced the full penalty of all our transgressions, including the terrible separation that sin causes between us and God. That’s why He is our perfect high priest, He knows our wounds￼.”

Saints! God is with you, even in the rough seasons of your life.
Some of us are better at pouring out our hearts to God in prayer than we are at listening to see what God has to say to us as we read the Bible.
Others of us are better at hearing God speaking to our consciences as we read His Word than we are at offering God genuine worship and praise or heartfelt petition, that we and those we love will live our lives in line with his word.
We are meant to be good at both.￼ God‘s plan is for Bible reading and prayer to always be linked.￼
We’ve all faced challenging circumstances that have confounded us, we’ve had no idea about how to proceed, and we’ve longed for the Lord‘s guidance, help, and provision.
However, as believers, we must understand that the Holy Spirit indwells us the moment we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, and He has been given to us as an everlasting promise that God will never leave us nor forsake us, no matter what happens￼ (John 14:16-18; Charles Stanley Life Lessons). 🌸
