Be driven by love, not fear ❤
Perfect love casts out fear - John 4:18🌟How many times have we let our fears drive us away from opportunity, our marriage, our business, or even our fellowship with God? The truth is we all come short of the glory - Romans 3:23 But I am comforted to know my God is bigger than all my fears✨and offers me grace
People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals - that is, goals that do not inspire them. - Tony Robbins
Question: What keeps you inspired? .
It’s time to go deeper than what simply Inspires you, but what deeply moves you to keep working towards your vision, even when challenge after challenge appears. It’s not a question of your character, but of finding and mining that passion within you.
The quest this week is to finding that inspiration and bringing it fully into your plans of action this year. Looking back, what path did you think lit up your life then faded. What can you pull from that experience to hold up to your new and future journeys? These signposts are invaluable as you head down any new path!.
✨✨ VERSE(S) OF THE DAY ✨✨ Verses - Proverbs 8:34-36: “Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord. But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death.” Commentary - Proverbs chapter 8 is entitled “Wisdom’s Call” And is about just that. The 3 verses that stood out the most to me were verses 34-36. The last couple verses of any chapter tend to stand out most to be because it’s usually a summary of the entire chapter. “Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway” - this reminded me of a school or school house. We all know those kids who are early to class each and every day just because they adore learning - I’m that kid! 🙈 I am so eager to learn, I arrive early to every class I attend. This shows the professor that I am here and ready to learn. They can always count on me being there. That’s how wisdom or Jesus feels about us. Jesus is our teacher because we come to the father through the son. He wants us to be there and ready to learn new things. Coming back day after day, never ceasing. “For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord”
- those of us who are eager to learn & eager to gain wisdom by doing these things everyday receive favor from the Lord. Because like I said, coming to Jesus and learning from him will guide us to the father. “But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death”
- Jesus is not hiding. All we have to do to seek him, is to come before him willing to learn. He will grant us all the knowledge that we need but we have to seek him first. We do that by reading the Bible. Those who choose not to seek Jesus by reading the Bible are bringing harm upon themselves because it is the wisdom of jesus that equips us with everything we need to tackle the events of our lives.
Application - read the Bible and come before Jesus daily eager to learn and grow. If you’re not sure where to start, I have a blog post made specifically for you on how to read the Bible! I’ll have it linked for you.
