Solomon a wise servant of the Lord encourages us to seek wisdom and understanding from God. We want you to be blessed and to be a blessing to others everyday. When you get better the world gets better.
"Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right." Proverbs 16:8
There are times when you want to give so much, but maybe your finances are limited. Be encouraged because you are richer than you think. Focus on Christ and give love.
"There is that makes himself rich, yet has nothing; there is that makes himself poor, yet has great riches." Proverbs 13:7
If you can't see a way out of a situation or you are wondering when will things change; be encouraged because help is coming from the hills. God is working it out just for you.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding..."
A good friend is built for adversity. They will be with you through your trials and tribulations. Be a good friend to someone.
"A friend loves at all times and a brother is born for adversity." Proverbs 17:17
"He that justifies the wicked and he that condemns the just, they both are an abomination to the Lord."
Pastor Barrett's Seven Days of Wisdom
Diet and exercise will keep you healthy. Try the word God for nourishment; prayer, praise, worship and church for exercise.
"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and is safe."
All of God's creation took place in seven days. Of all that he created, the most beautiful, and sanctified is you and don't let the devil tell you anything different.
"Have not I written to you excellent things in counsel and knowledge that I might make you know the certainty of the word of truth."
Here are three good reasons to go to church according to the Bible:
1. Ephesians 2:19 says we are fellow citizens of the household of God. Verse 21, "In whom all the building fitly framed together and grows into an Holy Temple in the Lord." In other words, the body of Christ is composed of the spiritual and the physical.
2. Some are turned off by the church because they think there is too much mess going on in there. In Matthew 21:12-14 Jesus corrects, instructs and heals. My Father's house is a house of prayer and prayer changes things. Trust Jesus to handle every situation.
3. "And he came to Nazareth where he had been brought up and as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath Day..." Luke 4:17
Jesus is in his home town on the Sabbath Day and he follows his custom of going to church.
Notice the scripture says he follows his custom.
If going to church is good enough for Jesus, it ought to be good enough for you. Make it your custom to attend the church of your choice.
God bless you.
