THERE ARE ALREADY ENOUGH CRITICS IN THE WORLD. LET'S EMBODY THE CHARACTER OF GOD.
If you look hard enough, you can find a fault or a flaw in someone. But God almighty is focusing on what you do that is right, and showers and bestows his unconditional love on you daily. It may be in the form of a hug from a loved one, an unexpected breakthrough in healing, or a financial blessing at work.
God operates in the economy of overflow of love, goodness, health and joy. As such, we should operate in the same way as his children. When we take the time to focus on what is right about an individual, we highlight those God-given talents and that in effect honors God’s creation.
God created all of us in his image and we should strive to bear his character in our daily lives. He sent his son Jesus, who lived a perfect life, free from any sin as an example to embody. His death on the cross gives us the remission of sins, and gives us his righteousness to stand before God.
We on our own cannot do enough good to rectify our sinful nature. But by confessing in your mouth and believing in your heart the Lord Jesus, your sins are forgiven and when you die, you will be joined with God in heaven for all eternity. This is the pathway to salvation and it is opportune time to uplift.
Be encouraged to spend more of your energy focused on spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to others than pointing out their mistakes. While judging has its role on the earth, so does evangelism.
Jesus commands us in The Great Commission to go into all the world and preach the gospel in every nation. Moreover, he commands that the gospel must be published throughout all the world. Making this the first priority in your life not only has a good effect on the planet, it also creates a ripple effect throughout eternity.
Doing this will create a peace that passes all understanding in every area of your life: family, work, finances, love and lives on long after you do. We all have a purpose to fulfill on this earth. It’s time to uplift one another in love, knowing that God in heaven above is rejoicing, because God is love.
Confession points on receiving the provision for your life:
Colossians 1:16-17 “for in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him; and he is before all things and in him all things consist.”
Colossians 1:19-20 “For it was the good pleasure of the Father that in him should all the fulness dwell, and through in to reconcile all things unto himself, having made peace through the blood of his cross; through in, I say, whether things upon the earth, or things in the heavens.”
nature does not know how to acknowledge a setback.
AS LIVING BEINGS, WE SHOULD TAKE A CUE FROM NATURE TO ADAPT EVEN WHEN OUR SURROUNDINGS ARE LESS THAN OPTIMAL.
Seeing nature at work is a remarkable thing. A storm comes and passes through, destroying everything in its path. And yet, it does not waiver, but simply adapts and finds another way to grow.
Entire industries are built on overcoming the forces of nature and its resilience and God-given determination to grow in the most rocky and resistant of areas. Where it appears to be weak and erradicated by weedkillers, plant poison and the like, it is actually made stronger.
Such is the DNA given to us by all-mighty God. We are created in his image and are to do many good works throughout the earth. Like a plant or moss or flower that springs up in the most unlikely places, so is the word of God when it is planted.
God has set the earth as his footstool, and therefore nothing that is his can be cursed when he has blessed it. Simply put, God's word does not return to him void. It is a seed that once planted, will take effect in the most challenging of environments.
What can you do to adapt to circumstances that are not ideal? Keep steadfast on honoring God. Do good things unto others, and have a bright and sunny outlook. Generating your own inner sunshine will provide the sunlight you need to emerge forward and grow.
So when challenges come your way, turn inward and go to your place of peace and prayer closet. Meditate on God's holy word and trust and rely on him. Proceed as if victory and triumph is inevitably coming your way.
Set your mind on one thing: growing and moving forward. Focus on nothing else but forgiveness, peace, charity and reconciliation.
Trust that God will provide everything you need to water your seed and that the components of fortitude put in you will press through the most stony foundations. That bedrock of faith will push you past and on and upward towards a new season of growth, opportunities and vision.
Confession points on growth in financial endeavors:
Colossians 1:6 “which is come unto you; even as it is also in all the world bearing fruit and increasing, as it doth in you also, since the day ye heard and knew the grace of God in truth;”
Colossians 1:10 “to walk worthily of the Lord unto all pleasing, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;”
