Be an agent of God’s peace in the moment that you’re in.  There are troubled storms the Spirit is desiring to calm for you and through you even now.

If we are defaulting to anything that’s not based on Christ and His word, it’s not a matter of if, but when, that thing comes crashing down.
Prov 13:12 NKJV
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.
Life Lesson
Let the Lord prioritize one thing at a time in your heart. Love and serve Him and look for the one person He may be desiring to minister to through you today.
Life Lesson
It’s good to be the best for His glory, but it’s a sickness to make competition the main goal.
Ps 1:1-3 NKJV
1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
Rom 5:1-5 NKJV
1 therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
2 Peter 1:2-4 NKJV
2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Heb 10:7 NKJV
Then I said, 'Behold, I have come — In the volume of the book it is written of Me — To do Your will, O God.'"
Ps 19:7-11 NKJV
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
And in keeping them there is great reward.
Life Lesson
We connect to God’s healing power through obedience to His word and faith, this causes our souls to be in sync with the Spirit so He can flow through us.
Life Lesson
We need to understand the difference between obedience and legalism. Obedience is doing something God has prescribed for us to do.  Legalism is adding something that God has not prescribed for us to do.
John 8:11 NKJV
She said, "No one, Lord."And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more."
Matt 5:29-30 NKJV
29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.  30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
Life Lesson
If something is hindering you from following Jesus more fully and intimately cut it off.
Life Lesson
When we receive God’s mercy we are a witness to Him and His work in our life.
Luke 18:13-14 NKJV
13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner!'  14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
