Placing Our Trust Part Two



   Last week I pointed out that the Bible shows us that we have two options this year as to where we place our trust. We can either trust in ourselves and human wisdom making us like a rootless tumbleweed, haphazardly going through the year. Or we can put our trust in God and His wisdom, and be like a mighty tree with deep roots that thrives no matter what happens. The choice is ours.
   
   Today, the scripture that we are focusing on shows us that if our trust is in God, not in human reasoning, He will direct our paths this year. Not only will He do that but He will also make the path before us plain and straight so we won’t be able to miss His direction. If God knows how everyday of our life needs to go for us to have successful lives, wouldn’t it be in our favor to put our trust in Him and not in ourselves?
    So let me ask you, are you placing your trust in God and allowing Him to direct your path or are you like the rootless tumbleweed?      

Have a blessed day,

Where Are You Placing Your Trust This Year?


  Happy New Years Friends. I hope the first part of everyone’s year has started out on a good note! Over the last few weeks the above scripture has been on my heart a lot. It makes it pretty clear that during all that will happen in the days and weeks ahead of us, where we place our trust is crucial. Because, as the above scripture tells us, that will dictate how our lives will go.

   Will we be people who place our trust in God and be like the tree that the above scripture describes who never has to worry about anything that might happen in the world around him. Or would we rather trust in ourselves and human reasoning and be like the rootless tumble weed, drifting along aimlessly in a land where nothing grows. That tumbleweed never produces fruit Or accomplishes much either. 

Where are you placing your trust? 
Is it in God who will keep you strong through every season and keep you continually bearing fruit?
 Or is it in yourself and the wisdom that comes from man leaving you rootless and unfruitful?

Take some time today to examine your own life. What is it showing you about where you are placing your trust?
Have a blessed day,
Stephanie

Last Thanksgiving Post: God Will Fulfill His Promises

  Life is hard and seeing areas that we have to be thankful for can be difficult to do sometimes. That’s why I really appreciate holidays like Thanksgiving day. Holidays like this prompt us to pause and reflect on all that God is and has done for us. 

You can count on God to keep His promises. 
  
  In this last post in the series I’ve been doing in honor of the Thanksgiving day holiday, I want to talk about the truth that God always keeps His promises. If He has promised something to us in the Bible He is willing and faithful to bring them to pass. 



  God sees fulfilling His promises in the Bible as so important that He actively watches over them to make sure that they do what they are supposed to do. It is pretty amazing to know that we can fully trust every promise that we read in the Bible, because as long as we give Him the time to do the work, every promise will be fulfilled. 

God is watching over His Word to make sure it does what it is supposed to.

 What promises am I talking about?
   1) The promise of salvation: God wants that all human beings be saved and come to the knowledge of all that God has done for us. John 3:16&17
   2) The promise that we are His family; God promised that all human beings that believed in Him will be a part of His family.  Eph 1:4&5
  3) The promise of Life: God has come that we have life and have it more abundantly then we could ever ask or think.  John 10:10
  4) The Promise to take care of our every need: Psalms 23:1 Psalms 23:12 Cor 9:8
  5) The promise that every weapon that Satan brings against us will not succeed Isa 54:17
  6) The promise of healing  Isa. 53:5
  7) The promise of protection Psalms 91

  These are just a few of the promises that God has given us in the Bible. I encourage you to take the time to look through the Bible and see if you can find some more. 
  
  I hope that you all have enjoyed taking this journey with me as we have talked about a few of the things that we have to be thankful for. I am so grateful for the fact that with God we always have reason to hope as I talked about in my first installment  And the truth that we discussed in the second installment  about the fact that we can rest in the understanding that God will turn every negative evil situation that we find ourselves in for our good if we allow Him to. 



Have a blessed day,
Stephanie

A Celebration of Thanksgiving Part 2: Turning a Negative Into a Positive.

  Today we will continue a series I started last Monday. You can check that out here
  
God is in the business of turning our negative situations
into positive ones if we let Him

  A second thing that that I often get reminded of during this season of thankfulness is that God can take any negative situation or season we are in and turn it into a positive if we allow Him too. In fact, it gives Him great pleasure to do it for us. 



  The Bible is full of examples of people who lived through horrible situations that God turned around for the persons good. People like Joseph, Esther, Ruth and even Daniel all lived through horrible situations and came out the other side of the situation even better off than before they went into it. 

God doesn’t play favorites. What He did for these people He will do for you as well. If you let Him!

  One of the amazing things about walking with God is that we can rest fully in the fact that He does not play favorites (Rom 2:11). Just as God willingly turned every one of these people's situations around for their good, He will do it for you as well. I encourage you to take the time to study each of these people lives and see how the Bible tells us that God came through for them. I am so grateful that God loves us enough to turn our bad situations around for our good. Aren’t you!?!

See you in a few days
Stephanie
