daily devotional for motivation (11)

The Bible admonishes us as Believers to trust in the Lord. Do you know why? Because even God knows that it is hard to trust without knowledge, information or physical evidence. However, true faith is tested when you do not understand the full scope of things, but choose to believe that someone has your best interest at heart. Trust is a choice. One that is made actively and not passively. The same way a man would accept to be joined to a woman forever, knowing full well that this woman can chang

Trust is a necessity in both human and spiritual relationships. We lean towards people who have our best interests at heart. Trust is simply the ability to rely on something or someone. God is our maker and our heavenly father in the same way that a child would put all their trust in their parents to guide them. That's why we, as Christians, should put our trust in God to guide us. There can be no relationship without trust. Trust Works hand and hand with faith, because we can't have faith in so

Sin has caused an eternal war between man and his maker, Yahweh. Sin is the complete opposite of everything our God stands for. The first man and woman created by God, sinned against him in the Garden of Eden by eating the tree of knowledge, which God had instructed them against sin, is complete disobedience to laws and rules. It can be caused by several reasons, traced to selfishness, lust greed, anger, pride and laziness. A sin is an immoral act, considered a transgression of Divine Law.

If we're being honest, we would realize that many things are fighting for our attention. In life, we have relationships to manage Financial burdens, to settle businesses, to work on career goals, to meet and other things that draw our attention. Unfortunately, many of us put God in the last place on our list of preferences. We don't spend enough time with God.  We try to use God to satisfy our other needs, but this isn't meant to be, while those other needs are valid and need our attention, God

God is always working behind the scenes. God can be described as a movie director. You can never see in a real movie, but his presence is always felt. It is the movie director that brings a movie to life. Imagine watching a movie where you see the director keep shouting cut, repeat action. You will immediately get tired of the film. This is why they work behind the scenes, and this is how God works. Unlike a movie director, God doesn't come before us and Lord his desires over us. He can suggest

We may need moments to feel happy, but to always experience the joy of the Lord, we need faith in all of God's promises:. When you look through the scriptures, we are often told to rejoice, always be full of joy in the Lord, or be of good cheer. You will notice that these statements do not come as a recommendation, but rather as an instruction. This shows us that joy is something we must practice as believers.

 

Therefore, whatever the surrounding circumstances or situations, your disposition sh

The promise of God's presence is constant and never changing. The light of his presence shines on you daily. Even in that dark situation or circumstance that seems overwhelming. As Believers, we do not work by feeling or sight, but we move with the eyes of faith. The fact that the Bible reveals that the current Heaven and Earth will pass away one day should give you confidence that your present negative situation or circumstance can also be rolled away in the Winking of an eye, regardless of the

 Psalm 24:1 says

The earth is the Lords, and [a]all it contains, The world, and those who live in it..

God is the owner of the universe and everything in it. Today we have people who own houses and businesses across the globe. These people decide what should and should not happen their decisions stand because they own them as the owner of anything.

 

You decide what you want to do with that thing. In the same way, the Lord owns the earth. He owns the people on the earth, owns the resources an

Life will knock you down and laugh at you. Life will hit you when you're trying to live for Jesus. Life is no respecter of persons. But that's when you say, "you know what, I'm getting up, I'm not going to quit. I'm not. I may get knocked down nine times, but I'm going to get up 10 times. I'm not going to quit." In the words of the great theologian Rocky Balboa, - and I quote, "it's not how hard you can hit that makes you a winner, but it's how hard you can get hit and get up and keep going".

As you build your faith, you block out the spirit of fear. Fear and faith do not mix, they are complete opposites. So, if you'll take just one thing away from my message today, let it be this, God has not given you a spirit of fear, he has given you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Deuteronomy 31:8 says

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

 

Everything God has for us is contained in thes

Everyone loves to be comfortable, stress-free and happy. A unique sense of satisfaction comes when there are no challenges when there is peace and everything is working out smoothly. However, we all know that in life, peace and prosperity are not always the case. There are times when you will pass through hardship and diverse challenges before peace and prosperity arrive. This is a natural occurrence in life, both born-again Christians and non-believers.

 

Have this same experience, however, bel
