Malachi 2

Mountain21

Here are two verses from Malachi 2 that I felt that I needed to share with you:

Verse 5: We are priests. We have a responsibility to follow God. To be true to His word, to live a life that honours Him.

We are supposed to share our knowledge and love of Christ with everyone.

But how can we do this if our lives don’t reflect Him?

We need to change our attitudes and belief that just being a Christian is enough, we need to live like Christians too!

“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”  1 Peter 2:9

Verse 10: We, as Christians, have something in common. We have the same father, we are family!

If this is true, why do we fight so much? Why is there so little love and grace between us?

Our bond should be far greater than blood, race or gender. Our love for Christ and the fact that He is our father should be an unbreakable glue that binds us together.

RUN to WIN!

RUN.

How are you getting through life? Trudging on, dragging your feet?

Or head up, and RUNNING toward God and His will?

RUN! Put all your time and energy in to becoming closer with Christ!

RUN to WIN!

 

Don’t you realise that in a RACE everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So RUN to WIN!

1 Corinthians 9:24

 

I press on to reach the end of the RACE and receive the heavenly PRIZE for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

Philippians 3:14

De-stress That Life!

Philippians 4:6-7

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

 

Don’t worry” – this is one of the hardest thing anyone could ask of me. I am a huge worry wart. Even the smallest of things can trigger off my anxiety.

Pray” – Seems so simple doesn’t it? Then why is it our last resort? After we have made things worse by trying to fix them ourselves.

Prayer opens our hearts. None of us want anyone to see what is really in our hearts, so we lock them up, we don’t allow God inside. By doing this we are locking the fear, pain and worry inside. Open your hearts to God’s love, let Him in!

Thank God” – Thanking God helps us to see all that He has given us. We must remember all the times in our lives that He has been there for us.

Ask” – When we ask for something, we are saying that we need help, that we can’t do it on our own. I find it rather hard to admit that I am not superhuman. When we ask God to help us, we start to depend on Him and we learn so much about His strength and His faithfulness.

Peace” – We are all human so we all have worries and stress. Take them to God and talk them through with Him. Give them to Him and trust Him. It will feel like the world has been lifted from your shoulders. Yes, the problems will still be there, but you are not alone. God is on your side.

 

This is what I will be working on, to become less stressful, to trust God more, and to seek Him first!

Hopefully my life will be stress-free by 2019! 😀

Joy. Prayer. Thanks

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
#1 ALWAYS be joyful
#2 NEVER stop praying
#3 Be thankful in ALL circumstances!

True joy comes from God. We are always focus on the bad things that happen in our lives, but forget about all the good that God has done for us. Next time life feels like its falling apart, stop and remember what God has done. You will be amazed of how many blessing He has given you!

When  its hard to remember, the best thing to do is talk to God, ask Him to remind you that He is in charge and that He is looking out for us.

Sooo…Be thankful!!! Life IS awesome! and filled with so much incredible things!

Giving Your Time To God

I was reading Joshua 24:14,15 this morning, and it got me thinking about how I was living and how much of my life was being lived for God.

We have a choice to follow Christ, if we choose to, then it has to be whole-heartedly!

It is a fulltime commitment.

For me it is easy to give God my money, to tithe, but when it comes to giving my time…that’s a whole new story.

I am always moaning when I have to give up my precious time for someone else. God wants my all, this includes my time, which isn’t even mine to begin with.

God doesn’t only want the quick 10 minutes that I give Him in the morning, for my quiet time. No. He wants the whole day, every day. Whether we are at work, at university or at home, our time belongs to God.

How much time do you give to God? Is it only during your quiet time? Or is it in every moment of your day?

My Peace Comes From God

No one likes a Monday, but this Monday was longer and more tiring than usual. It left me feeling stressed and restless. After work that evening, I sat at my desk, thinking over the events of the day. I tried to bring myself out of this low space, but I couldn’t, I just got more anxious and frustrated.

I saw my Bible lying on my desk, and I remember that I hadn’t had my quite time with God that day. At first, I was like: “no. I don’t want to read or chat with God” because I wasn’t feeling up to it, But I made myself open it.

The very first sentence that I read struck me and was in my mind for the rest of the week. This is what I read: “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God.” John 14:1

I can’t explain to you how much I needed to hear that. I just sat there afterwards, praying, pouring out all my worries to God. It felt as if the world had been removed from my shoulders. All that stressed was replaced with peace, a peace that stuck with me for the whole week.

I feel like laughing as I look back…so much time wasted on worry when all I should have done was give it all to God from the start.
