Pursue and Seek Love...Trust God’s Ways...Stop Worrying

Pursue and Seek Love

1 Corinthians 14:1

          Developing a love walk, like the one displayed in the life of Jesus is like digging for gold. True Christlike love is not found on the surface of life. The Bible says you must eagerly pursue and seek it. This means you must go after love with all your might, as if you cannot live without it.

          You must learn all you can about love and familiarize yourself with everything Jesus and the apostles said about it. However, not only are you to learn about love, you are to walk in love, remembering to treat others the way you desire to be treated.

          Tonight, ask God to help you seek and acquire His kind of love – the love that can make a meaningful difference in your life….and in the lives of those around you.       



Trust God's Ways

Isaiah 55:8-9………my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways…

          Did you know a lack of understanding of how God does things can wear you out? If you do not understand His ways, you could end up fighting and resisting things, thinking they are an attack from the devil, when in reality they are an attempt by the Lord to work something good in your life.

          You know God does not do bad things. But sometimes you may fail to realize that everything that feels bad to you is not necessarily bad for you. Reminding yourself that His ways are not your ways will help you trust Him even when your circumstances are hard to understand.

          As this busy day comes to a close, just put yourself in the hands of almighty God…. And rest in the knowledge that He is good and knows what is best.



Stop Worrying

Matthew 6: 25, 27

          Many people worry about everything, including what they will or will not eat or wear, or what they will do if a particular situation occurs.

          Most of us have enough clothes, adequate food, comfortable house, and serviceable cars. But when things get tough and you are faced with situations that seem impossible, the devil says, "What are you going to do now?" The temptation comes to worry, but that is not the answer.

          God wants you to know that worrying does not add to your life – in fact, it will surely shorten it if you make it a habit.

          Your heavenly Father knows about all the things you need before you ask Him. So stop worrying and focus your attention on the one who is able to provide everything you need, and more.
