The Bible has many examples of those who went above and beyond in faith and courage, when all seemed hopeless, but that didn’t stop Daniel and his 3 companions, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, to stand up for what was right and put their complete trust in God, who saved them from death.
Who To Trust?
We have to be careful where we put our trust. The Bible gives us many examples where we should not put our complete trust and confidence. In contrast, we should always put our complete trust in our creator – God the Father, no matter what situation we find ourselves in.
Pentecost: God Will Provide
Do we believe that God will provide in ALL things? What do we ask for? What kind of blessings can we expect to receive if we live righteously? How do we put God to the test if we want to receive blessings?
Above and Beyond
How are we doing in our efforts to live God’s way of life?
How is our faith being tested? There are many examples of individuals in the Bible who have had their faith tested many times, but how did they respond? What about second chances? What does the Bible have to say about that?
Learn To Grow
Since the moment of being called to the truth, and then eventually taking that necessary step to get baptized, how have we grown since? How have we learned along the way up onto this point? We still sin but what’s important is how we overcome sin, by learning from our mistakes, which will then bring us ultimately to perfection.
Where do we put our trust, in God or man? As we continue to go through trials, one thing is for sure – look to God and He will give us the desires of our heart.
The future for the world is heading towards a terrible time, as predicted in the book of Isaiah. Through man’s selfish desires, they look to their own resources – through warfare, idol worship and pagan beliefs, instead of looking to God and keeping His commandments. There is hope however and God tells us how we can be saved, and inherit everlasting life.
Becoming approved happens to everyone. Depending on what the situation is, different types of approval will happen. As Christians, we are to become approved by God by the things that we are doing. This includes our continual growth and progress that will become evident to all we come in contact with.
Before You Speak
Many times, we speak too quickly or rashly, without first thinking or considering deeply what we are saying. But God holds us responsible for what we may promise. God is totally reliable and trustworthy, and He cannot lie. He wants to see the same character trait in His children.
