God's Wonderful Blessings

"The Lord has promised wonderful blessings." Numbers 10:29 NLT

God is still with us today just as He was in the days the Holy Bible was written. He never promised life would be easy. If life were easy, we wouldn't call on Him for help. If life were easy, we would be less thankful. If life were easy, we wouldn't know how to be humble. 

Our heavenly Father has promised to bless us abundantly. We can recognize our blessings in our good health, the meals we have every day, friends and family who love us and care for us. We have been blessed to have a Savior who provided a way, through the cross, for us to speak to God every day, who prays on our behalf every day, who pleas our case to our Father every day, who made it possible for us to enter heaven by simply believing in Him and having faith that we are saved.

When we allow the Spirit to take control of our minds, body, and soul, we understand these blessings. Just because life is dotted with problems and disappointments doesn't mean God has left us; it doesn't mean we are without blessings. If we learn to count our blessings instead of our problems, life becomes simpler and easier. 

I have an idea of what lies ahead for me as a get out of bed this morning. But I woke up thanking God for my multitude of blessings, thanking him for a day He has created just for me, praying that I handle any difficulties well and represent Him well.

In James 1:2-4 NLT, we know that even our problems (tests) are blessings. In these passages, James says, "Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing." 

As humans, we are built for endurance and molding (development). We seek change and challenges. So, why not accept the challenges that God gives us. He knows what will build that endurance and strengthen us for His use. Each day is a new opportunity for these types of blessings that God offers. Let your endurance grow.

Heavenly Father, I pray that I accept life's challenges today with humility that only You can provide. Help me to endure and to seek the blessings within the development that each problem or challenge brings with it. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

Praying for many blessings to be bestowed on you today,

Patricia

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:
