Which one will you choose to live by? I choose to live by His Spirit. All other paths lead to Hell.
“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.”
Galatians 5:16-17 NIV
God gave me some scriptures to hold onto and to apply to each moment of the day. I’ll share them with you. These scriptures will help me to have a successful day which will lead to a successful and peaceful week. I will meditate on them day and night. I will speak them. I will put them into practice.
“Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends! I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:1-2, 4-9, 13, 19 NIV

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of life. Thank You for extending your grace and mercy upon us today. Thank You for being a Father of many nations. For taking care of all our needs. For keeping us out of harms way. We thank You for this day and will rejoice in it. We won’t rejoice because it’s Friday and it ends the work week or it’s payday. But we will rejoice because You are worthy of our praise. You are worthy of our time. You are worthy of our life. So help us to dedicate our life to You. Help us to walk in obedience to Your Word. Help us to rise in the morning with a thankful heart. You have been and continue to be good. Take us through this day. Guide us and keep us as we walk in Your will. May Your power, strength, joy, love, peace, patience, provision, and protection be with us. Help us to incline our ears to You so we can hear clearly. Your voice is so sweet. Help us to make room for You in our day and please You with our words and actions. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17
Jesus, help me to follow Your example. To walk in love at all times. Help me to sacrifice myself and give myself to others as You did for me on the cross. Please purify me; my heart, mind, body, and motives. Take out anything that isn’t like You. Help my words to be pleasing to Your ears. May they build up those I speak to and about and not tear them down. Help me to always be thankful. Jesus help me to keep You first and not put anyone or anything before You. Help me to be wise and walk according to Your guidance and wisdom. Keep my company honest and may they have good motives. Please teach me Your will so that I can walk it out obediently and live a righteous life. Keep me out of the company of those who are disobedient. Help me to have holy boldness and speak truth at all times. Jesus, thank You for every opportunity. Help me to make the most of them all. Fill me with Your Spirit. I need You. I thank You. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Are you worried?
Are you Gods child?
Do you believe in His Word?
Do you believe He will come through?
So I ask again, are you worried?
God has this wonderful thing that He does. He provides for His people. We are to trust Him and let Him handle the details. Worrying doesn’t add a single hour to your day. And let’s be honest, if we had a 25th hour, it would most likely be spent worrying too.
So what is it that you need God to do?
Ok, now what is it that you have to do?
You must first eliminate worry and focus on His Word (trust). Speak His Word over your life (faith). Seek Him (pray). After you have done this listen (direction). Move according to His instruction which is always a peaceful, stress free, worry free, trustful, and doubt free road to provision and promise.
Remember: God will be God

Jesus, it’s a new day. A day full of new mercies. Thank You for allowing me to see a brand new day that You have made. Forgive me for my sins. Help me today to walk victoriously through the day. Help me to keep your Word hidden in my heart so that I don’t sin against You. Help me because I really want to do what pleases You, but sometimes it’s hard. I need Your help. I need Your hand. Walk with me, please. In Jesus’ name. Amen. ❤️

What I was reminded of is pretty simple. As I read through Proverbs 3:1-10, I’m reminded that my faithfulness and obedience to Gods Word and His Kingdom will produce promises. When I obey His commands, I attach myself to long life, peace, and prosperity. Who doesn’t desire these things? So you mean to tell me, they automatically attach themselves to me when I obey God?! That’s an extremely fair trade off. You mean to tell me that trusting God will put me on a straight path? I don’t need to try to figure out my life because God’s promise to give me straight paths will set my life up for greatness?! Yeah, with promises like that from a God who is able to perform awesome wonders, I’ll stay on the road of obedience for life. It’s well worth it. Don’t you think so too ? So keep the faith. You’re right where God needs you. Stay faithful and obedient to His Word.
“My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”
Proverbs 3:1-10 NIV
