Do you want your life to be characterized by strength, stability and balance? Do you want to be considered successful, not in material wealth but rich in character? Would you like people to respect your opinions and the way you conduct your life?
Storms of Life
Rocks are pretty solid and weighty. When we think of a rock, we think of strength. Sometimes it’s said, “he is a rock” or “she is my rock,” meaning the person is strong or solid.
Whether we realize it or not, we each live by a set of guidelines. It’s our thinking and how we go about making choices in life. What are your guidelines? From where do they come?
In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus said, “whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house [his life] on the rock” — not on sand. When the storms of life come, the wise man will be found standing.
Delight in the LORD
What does it mean to delight in something? Isn’t it something/someone that brings much joy and wonder? Isn’t it something/someone that gets you fired-up? And, isn’t it someone/something you value deeply?
Do you feel that way about God? Do you feel that enthusiastic and energized about His Word? We can spend our lifetime here on earth barely scratching the surface of understanding God and His amazing Word. We are not able to fully comprehend the depth of His goodness, wisdom and power. Our finite minds can’t even grasp the magnitude!
How can you find pure joy in God today? What practical ways can you show value to His Word? For starters, you can invest time in reading the Bible and applying it to your life. His Spirit is your guide; He will light your way!
Be Ready Always...
to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
SHARE THE GOSPEL!
