Trusting in the Lord

How many of us really trust the Lord with so many life situations going on? We often opt of out of trusting God and choose to trust our own judgment. In Proverbs 3:1-2 God says, “My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying.” Most of us forget about being obedient to God’s commands when things are going well for us. We continue with our lives hiding from God, acting like Adam and Eve who also wanted a taste of the good life. But remember if we put our trust in God, keeping his commands close to our heart, we will establish the good life and be a living proof to those who don’t follow God’s commands. Today think about anyone in your life who has been a good representation of following God’s commands.  Share your struggles with them and ask for prayer.

Let Your Light Shine

Image-1 (5)

“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” Matthew 5:13-16 NLT

Sometimes we take this for granted. We often consider ourselves perfect for doing one good deed. What if God only did one deed for us? We often look at the sincerity of people’s hearts when we see them doing good deeds. We can’t examine the minds and hearts of other people. We should acknowledge them instead of being judgmental. How can we be the light of world? We often become so blinded by what we see in the world that we forget to let our light shine. The distractions we see daily are minimal but God is eternal. So let your light shine so bright that the world will see who our Savior truly is. Today, do a good deed for someone not looking for anything in return, but to please your heavenly Father. Remember to stand on faith regardless of what the enemy is doing.
