Be confident in the knowledge that God is your helper! He is there for you no matter what challenge you face. Declaring God’s power in your life gives you the ability to overcome the fear of what difficult circumstances may bring to your life.
One who can write what people will read has a wide opportunity of doing good. There is need for consecrated pens. One can write helpfully only after living victoriously. We are apt not to realize the cost at which we receive the good we get from helpful books.
We read the smooth, graceful sentences with delight. They impart to us instruction, inspiration, comfort, and courage. We give little thought to the writer, or we think of him as one who wields a facile pen. It rarely occurs to us to think of him as one who has endured pain or suffered loss, or passed through sorrow, in order that he might give us the words in which we find so much help.
But the truth is that no strengthening thought comes to us from another without cost to the other, some time, some way. Men and women must live deeply before they can write hopefully. We cannot teach lessons we have not learned, and we cannot learn such lessons save in the school of experience.
Helping a friend in need may be just a simple act of kindness, but the importance here is about relationships. We don’t necessarily think about “maintaining” relationships but rather directing our time to things that matter to us. Take a break from your busy life and think of a starving relationship you can feed. It could blossom into something so beautiful only God could have touched it.
When we live distracted lives, we live destroyed by the enemy of our soul. The enemy loves when we reach for more and focus on what’s next. As long as our eyes are consumed with what depends on us, we aren’t able to depend on God. Focus your eyes on Jesus. Don’t let your possessions, career or any other good gift God gives, possess you. May all those things be tools to better serve the Lord.
Once we accept Jesus into our lives we no longer have to live with despair! God’s glory has come to earth in the foretold of baby Jesus. It’s through him that we are granted a sure salvation. Let go of despair and allow your life to be filled with God’s gracious glory!
