Most of life’s failures come when people lack the courage to act when it’s needed. They believe thoroughly in doing right, but when they come to a place where the moral aspect is not the only aspect of a question, and where very grave results may follow action, they lack the courage to trust themselves to act.
There is no courage higher than the courage which takes responsibilities when the providence of God puts them on us, and takes them without flinching, and without seeking to throw the burden of them off, in whole or in part, on someone else.
Pray that you may be strong to do your whole duty, not that you may be excused from it.. .“Cowardly flight from duty never leads to peace. Courageous fulfilment of duty never fails to find it.”
Jesus said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Be inspired by these words, it really doesn’t matter how ugly, dirty, or useless you think your life is. God is making all things brand new for you; giving you a fresh start.
Think about this; it doesn’t matter if you had a bad wife/husband, if your previous relationship was a disaster, if you lost your job or your business is going under, it doesn’t matter if the doctors have written your case off, God will make all things new for you.
God is not merely conserving: he is improving, developing, renovating, reconstructing you. People may have given up on you or your dreams, but hold on to these words, “Behold I make all things new.” There is nothing too great for you to undertake with God by your side, so don’t be afraid of going after your dreams.
Do not carry the past with you like a prisoner in chains. So many people go about with their past this way and as a result they are forever stuck and unable to make any progress in life. Every new day, God prepares abundant blessings and opportunities for us, and holding to your past mistakes and failures will prevent you from experiencing these gifts that come with the new day.
According to Micah in the bible, God buries our sins (past) in the depths of the seas and trample them, so why do you now go about fishing your past and taking inventory of them? Continue reading Daily Wisdom
No matter what it is you are going through; a divorce, breakup, loss of job, sickness, business failure, delays, lack of education, poverty, etc, you can reach into that pain or challenge and pick out the lessons. Your life may not look pretty at the moment, but it is exactly what you need to learn for you to grow into the person you have been destined to become.
If you have suffered more than your fair share of difficulties in life, perhaps you are being prepared to serve some greater purpose that will require you to be equipped with the wisdom you have acquired through your trials. Difficulties call out great qualities and make greatness possible. “When God wants to educate a man, he does not send them to school to the graces, but to the necessities.”
It’s really easy for you to give up, to be beaten, to whine and rail against the world, and say you haven’t got a chance when life hands you lemons, when every step you take towards your goal and dreams is fraught with challenges and set-backs. However, remember the words the words of Saint Paul, “And we know all things work together for good for them that love Go…”
Every event has the power to add to your life, and will add to your life, if you make the best use of what it has to give; this will constantly increase the power of your life, which will bring you into greater heights and better opportunities than you ever knew before. Make the best use of everything that comes your way. All things can be turned to good no matter how bad they appear.
“For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,” 2 Corinthians 4:17
All your negative life situations and challenges are essential for you to fulfill your destiny, but unless you possess the power of endurance to live through the dark of the night, you will never see the break of the day, nor access the success and beautiful life uou desire.
There is a great reward waiting ahead for you, but this reward has a price you must pay; you must learn to endure the present with its setbacks, challenges, failures, misunderstanding etc. This is the true path to success.
“He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” – Matthew 10:39
You can’t live fully without taking risks in life. And the one regret most people have at the end of their lives is the fact that they didn’t take many risks; all the opportunities they did not seize and all the fears they did not face. Never live to regret on your dying day.
To live your greatest life, you have to take risks and face your fears. Of course you will encounter challenges and obstacles which may cause you to trip and fall along the way, but that is part of the growth process. Every mistake you make along the way will help prepare you for the success of tomorrow.
“And the LORD said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh…” – Exodus 7:1
Never accept the negativity others may spill on you because if you do, then you give them victory and power over your life and you invariably become a victim in life. You should only accept the limits placed on you by God, and that limit is a life of abundance. “You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world.” You are meant to do great things.
