2 Timothy 2:22-24
“Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people.”
Temptations come at our weakest moments in life. It looks good and harmless but it’s very deceiving. When we find ourselves in God, he can help us to stay away and lead a righteous life. The people that we hang with can lead us down the wrong path so we have to be strong enough to say no and not be pressured into sin. We have to show the love of God and not get caught up in the foolish things of this world.
“Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.”
This world puts more emphasis on the outer appearance than anything else. As women we are so much more than our looks. Those things will fade but our fear of the Lord will get us further in life. When we fear God we take on integrity, modesty, dignity and respect for ourselves. We know our worth and it’s through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
” Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering , for he who promised is faithful”
God doesn’t lie. Whatever he promised you he will fulfill. It may not look how you think it should and it might not come they way that you imagined. We can’t allow doubt to slip in a rob us of our blessings, joy and peace. Always depend on God because he is faithful.
” For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”
Happy New Year Ya’ll!! We pray that this new year will be the beginning of a new life for you! Trust in God that he will provide for you and make all things new in your life.
“The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” Psalms 37:23 NLT
Letting the Lord guide your steps gives you freedom. He knows all and sees all and he has our best interest at heart. Closed doors, being told “no” or a failed relationship only means that God has better for you. He wants us to have the best and be the best. Just trust him!
