There is a famous Buddhist saying that everyone appears as buddhas in the eyes of the Buddha and everyone appears as pigs in the eyes of a pig. It suggests that the world is experienced according to the state of one’s mind. When your mind is joyful and compassionate the world is too. When your mind is filled with negative thoughts, the world appears negative, too. When you feel overwhelmed and busy, remember that you are not powerless. When your mind rests, the world also rest.
How do we follow the example of Christ? By following the word of God. How do we know what the word of God says? By reading and studying it on a daily basis. You see for most people there’s a train of thought that says I have to be perfect and guess what none of us our perfect in the same manner those who look to us look to say look at you so called Christian your not perfect how can I listen to you? So here’s the thing following the example of Christ is living out the best life you can for the kingdom of God it’s loving those God has called us to love which is everyone including your enemy it’s being a light it’s offering forgiveness it’s having a repentive heart it’s giving and blessing others it’s offering prayer for those need it. This is what following after God is. Maybe today you say I’ve tried and stopped well God calls to you and says I’m still here and I still love you maybe you say I tried and was discouraged by someone’s comments well know we live to have the approval of God and not man. Today ask yourself wha example am I setting for others to follow? Is it one that’s says follow me as I follow Christ or is it one that says it’s just the chasing after trivial things? #dailydevotion#devotional#devotion#dailydevotional#grace#grow#example#followme#whatareyoushowing#whatareyousaying#hope#love#rescuedchurch#faith#faithful#grace#mercy#salvation
GOD will DO as YOU SAY!!! Wow! Guess what friends, GOD is waiting for you to speak! His word was first spoken before it was written, then it was written now to be spoken by you. It's not enough not to confess negative, but speak! You must speak the word. Stop claiming you are waiting on God, when he's waiting for you to speak. God's word in your mouth is POWER! Get it in, meditate on it and declare them. There is power not where the king is, but where the WORD of the King is! You are a king, your words are powerful! Speak NOW!
If I ever have a child, I want to teach them the power of words. I want them to use their words wisely. Words have the ability to bring pain & have the ability to empower. I want them to know what it can mean when we say “yes” & what it can mean when we say “no”. To not only be mindful of what we say but to also listen and comprehend when others say “yes” or “no”. To not disregard these seemingly simple words. | @iamwill “yes or no” | #whatareyousaying ? #speaklife 📸: @mewanbuddy
