Examine Ourselves

With the start of a brand new year this week, many folks will be evaluating their lives and possibly resolving to make improvements for 2014.  This evaluation is a healthy process if one is truly honest with themselves.  Whether these improvements are associated with diet, exercise, or setting a budget; this type evaluation can lead to improvements that can be life changing. 

The Bible does teach us to examine ourselves, but in a little different way than looking at things from a physical viewpoint.  According to 2 Corinthians 13:5 we are to, "Examine ourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.  Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?"   This single verse challenges us all to look within ourselves and to make sure Jesus Christ is abiding in our hearts in lives.  Another verse found in 2 Peter 1:10 says, "Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure:  for if you do these things, ye shall never fall."

I pray this week your New Year's resolutions start with the spiritual side of life and that you all will have a safe and Happy New Year!

Matthew 9:36

“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”

This scripture demonstrates Christ’s great love and compassion for us all.  During the Christmas season we are all reminded to think about, pray for, and take action to uplift those around us.  So as you navigate through this busy and sometimes stressful season please remember to follow the pattern he left for us by taking time to help and encourage those who are in need.  By blessing someone else you’ll be surprised how much you will be blessed!  I hope you all have a great week!

1 Thessalonians 5:18

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."  1 Thessalonians 5:18

Take time to reflect in your heart on what you have to be thankful for.  We are truly blessed, if for no other reason than our God, our creator has given us life.  Treasure each day and really live and enjoy the life that God has gifted to us.

Prayer of Thanksgiving

I don't know about you, but most of my prayer life is spent asking God for things. Asking for help, for comfort and love: for myself, my children, my grandchildren, my family, and my friends.  And there is nothing wrong with that. 1 Peter 5:7 says “casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”. 

But, perhaps this week we should pray a prayer of thanksgiving for all that God has done for us, for this beautiful Salvation that he has given to us.  St. John 3:16 states, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."  Pray a prayer of thanksgiving for the fellowship of God’s people as we read about in Psalm 133:1 "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!"
 
So, this week, especially this week, let us all thank God for his love, his caring, and his mercy, that he so bountifully gives to us on a daily basis.  Psalm 100: 4-5 "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."

Peace

According to the dictionary, Peace is the absence of war or strife. It can also be a state of mind. God’s ‘PEACE’, given to us through Sanctification, gives us the knowledge and understanding to be strong in the face of life’s cares, problems, and constant changes.

John 14:27 states, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

In John 16: 33 we read, “These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

From the song, ‘He Whispers Sweet Peace to Me’
I trust Him through faith...by faith hold His hand....
And sometimes my faith is weak.....

And then when I ask Him to take command.....
It seems that I hear him speak.....

Chorus: 
He whispers sweet peace to me.....[to me]
He whispers sweet peace to me.....[to me]
When I am cast down....in spirit and soul....
He whispers....sweet peace to me.....
