Don't befriend or associate with one who harbors anger himself, and stirs it up in others, for it will kill your soul.
Man controlled by anger would hurt you by his evil temper, and unruly passions, causing the climate where you live to be like the torrid zone, too unbearable for any to live near him. It is contagious - don't get infected. If you do, you will be like them, you will be trapped by them. Then you will be in real danger.
God's warning is clear. Sin has a powerful tendency to grow and thoroughly dominate one who does nothing to stop it. But God says, Why are you angry? if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to devour you, but if you do what is right, you should rule over it!
Let's pray to God to help us to master sinful anger. God will drive out the evil spirit, make our heart soft, renew our nature, and fill our being with his own Holy Spirit.
Colossians 3:8 Genesis 4:6-7
We cannot boast at our own works. We can not boast at our own perfections. We can not think of ourselves greater than others for we are all sinners, hypocrites, fearful, deceivers, greedy, selfish, narcissists and boastful; saved by unmerited and undeserved GRACE. Regardless of whether you believe in a Christ or not... in your own life I’m sure you have been saved by someone else’s Grace given to you undeserved. At some point in time you deserved a worse sentence, a worse circumstance, a worse outcome than you received. I’m just asking you to carry that same Grace that you were given ....to others. Don’t be so judgmental and pious to think you are perfect or deserving of more than others. We are all connected whether you believe or not. One day we will all meet our maker and I just want Him to say “well done”. One day I believe we will all know the truth and I pray it will not be too late for you. The number one emotion people experience before death is REGRET. Don’t be part of that existence. Make every day count not for your selfish needs but to be the hope, the joy, the smile, the friendship, the love in someone’s else’s day. People will forget what you said or accomplished but they will never forget the way you made them feel. #love#joy#peace#patience#kindness#goodness#faithfullness#gentleness#selfcontrol#fruitofthespirit#unconditionallove#jesus#god#jesuschrist#grace#mercy#depressed#depression#suicide#suicidal#life#entreprenuer#entrepreneurs#leadership#motivationalquotes#motivation#life#servant#bible#marriage Tag somebody who needs this. You might be the answer to their prayer.
Have you found that the rug has been pulled under you? You just didn’t see “this” coming? Whatever that is.
It’s in this place where I believe two things may happen; you will either question the presence/protection of God or it may leave you desperately on your knees drawing closer to God. Trust me, the latter is the place I personally found the Savior, a place of utter desperation as my life was truly crumbling before my eyes.
I heard it best by Pastor Furtick- “the enemy attacks only what’s valuable to you..he won’t check your net worth before he does”
But do you know what that means? You ARE strong enough to withstand the storm, God hasn’t abandoned you! My friends, there are over 8000 (imagine???? 8000) promises in the Bible- all for us to reach out to but too often we live complacently and comfortably. I encourage you to trust this plan, even if, and especially when you can’t understand it. “Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees......My grace is enough; it’s all you need.My strength comes into its own in your weakness.” 2 Cor 12:8
Thank you Jesus for another day. I enter your gates with Thanksgiving and your courts with praise and bless your name. Thank you so much for your grace. Great is thy faithfulness. Our Father who art in Heaven hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors Lead us not into temptation [to sin or blaspheme your holy name] but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Father in Jesus Christ name please let your angels encamp round about me and my friends, family and loved ones everywhere we go. Please keep us from all hurt, harm, danger seen and unseen. I give you all my cares, issues and worries. Please keep me from evil. May the blood of Jesus Christ cover me and my loved ones in Christ Jesus name. Whatever role or profession I operate in please guide me with your divine wisdom and more as I surrender all to you my blessed Savior. I love you always Jesus. Satan the Lord Jesus Christ rebuke you and Remove your hands off me and [mention names] in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is Lord and has all power in His hands. None is greater than He. #love#faith#Jesus#hope#peace#prayer#believe#christian#grace#bible#prayers#trust#Christ#spiritual#thankful#wisdom#truth#praying#Jesuschrist#forgiveness#spirituality#worship#meditation#holyspirit#calm#guidance#praise#inspiration#Godisgood
SUNDAY✨: Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. ( James 3:16) ✨
Today I am hugely grateful for my faith. Financially, I might have lost everything, but have gained so much more. I have God ( One and Only), Mother and extended family in heaven, peace in my heart. And my Mum has recovered from breast cancer. ✨
In faith, hope and love ❤️
