We may stumble, we may even fall, but we will always be blessed by the Lord. In this message find reasons to understand why God is the way.
“That according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love.” Ephesians 3:16-17
Trust Remember that the Lord has a plan for each one of us and that it is specially designed to work with our defects and enhance our virtues. When facing a moment of doubt, remember that God, as a good Father, loves us unconditionally and will never wish evil on us, His flock.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13
Pray, because we should never underestimate the power of prayer. Do not forget that prayer is the most important form of communication we have with God.
By being in direct communication with our Father, we strengthen our trust in Him and meditate in search of an answer. Something that is essential for us to keep in mind is that we need to be grateful. Let us not forget to be thankful for everything that the Lord blesses us with every day.
“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.” James 1:6
Be patient. Because walking in God's path is not an easy task; and the changes we need in ourselves will not happen overnight.
If we want to act as Jesus did, we must have the same patience He had: patience to wait for answers, patience to endure all the evil that was placed in His path. So remember: patience tempers the spirit.
“And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:6
Seek advice. Use prayer as much as you want in order to communicate. Ask the Lord for counsel to guide your heart when making decisions over which you have no absolute certainty.
Also ask for advice from your loved ones and other trustworthy people: many times they have gone through similar situations to what you are going through and knowing their choices may lead you to a safe harbour.
“Without having seen[a] him you love him; though you do not now see him you believe in him and rejoice with unutterable and exalted joy. As the outcome of your faith you obtain the salvation of your souls.” Peter 1:8-9
Imitate. This is the most important advice, the one that without a doubt will never fail. Because by imitating God you will never do evil.
Following his example, you will earn a place with Him in eternal life; You will know the joy of loving your neighbor and help them when they need it. That way you will enjoy life and see it through the eyes of the Lord.
