This sounds so simple yet we get caught with our guard down. Then we do so well until something really traumatic happens and we question God. We want to be courageous but we tend to be quiet when we are called out by our friends. Do everything with love, but someone did something to hurt us and we don’t show love. These things are a constant battle in our lives and I truly believe until we commit to God being the center and our focus being on living like Christ we will struggle. This can only happen when we develop our relationship with the Lord by praying and reading. Not because we have to but because we are so thankful for what He did we want to.
The Spirit in us wants to lead us and will continue to show us what is right, the question is do we hear Him? When we know God’s word we are on guard to deal with life and we stand firm because we know our home is yet to come. When we know God’s word we are courageous to everyone because we have the confidence to share the love and that makes us strong. When we know God’s word it will help us see people as accepted and loved by God and we can show them love no matter what they choose. God is in control and wants us to live and spread the Good News and this is done when we are in tune with the Spirit and we know God’s word.
Know the truth (Jesus) and the truth will set you free. Amen
