“Now, “the Lord” in this passage is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is present, there is freedom.”

“A lesson for all of us is that for every loss, there is victory, for every sadness, there is joy, and when you think you’ve lost everything, there is hope.”

“I constantly remind myself to enjoy all the good I have in my life right now.”

“This is how the judgement works: the light has come into the world, but people love the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds are evil. All those who do evil things hate the light and will not come to the light, because they do not want their evil deeds to be shown up. But those who do what is true come to the light in order that the light may show that what they did was in obedience to God.”

“Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.”

“But Moses said, “No, LORD , don’t send me. I have never been a good speaker, and I haven’t become one since you began to speak to me. I am a poor speaker, slow and hesitant.” The LORD said to him, “Who gives man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or dumb? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? It is I, the LORD.”

In my ministry devotion today I spoke about how weak we are. (Have a look here: bit.ly/crossrds777) I also mentioned that through our weakness, God’s glory is shown.

God loves us and uses us despite our weaknesses. We are strong, because He works through us. Nothing we do can be attributed to our own clever mind or any power of our own. Everything we do, everything we are and everything we have is because of God.

If you trust God in your weakness, He will empower you, like He did Moses. The voice and words Moses spoke did not come from him. He did not prepare speeches for his meetings with the Pharaoh. He trusted God to give him strength and to give him the right words to say.

Are you still doubting your own ability to do God’s work? Remember, for the saved everything is God’s work. Even your daily chores should be done to glorify His Name. If you still worry that you don’t measure up, let me reassure you that He will give you the energy, the ability and the means to do whatever must be done.

Remember this: 1 Corinthians 10:31: “Well, whatever you do, whether you eat or drink, do it all for God’s glory.”

This is SO true, don’t you agree? When people hurt you or disagree with you it is an opportunity for us, as human beings, to grow. It is challenging to be challenged, but its eventual pay-off can be a positive thing for our lives.
Where would you be today if it were not for all those problems and all those fights over principles, work or family issues? Would you still be the same person you were before it happened? I don’t think so.

I agree that sometimes challenges can bring out the worst in us, especially if you tend to ‘fight dirty’, then the outcome for you, as person, is not at all healthy. But if you react to confrontation or problems logically, seeking help if you need it and understanding your strengths and weaknesses, the outcome can herald in a better you.

Now, you’ve read this quote, do you take it to heart? Would you remember it? And this brings me to something that I’ve noticed on social media; everyone likes to post quotes. The wisdom of another person is turned into a life lesson from which everyone can learn something. 

The thing is, how often do you read a quote and go: “Oh, yeah, that makes sense! I never thought of it in that way!” You then continue scrolling, promptly forgetting the quote you just read. Take the one above, for instance; next time you are challenged by circumstances or when your colleague/family member corners you about some issue, would you remember it? Would you remember to calm down and approach the challenge as an opportunity to grow personally or would you jump in, throwing verbal abuse at whomever confronted you? 

I know it is impossible to remember all the quotes we read every day, but perhaps we need to make more of an effort to remember and write down at least one that speaks to us. If everyone is like me, great thought went into posting a particular quote, so somewhere, someone thought it is important enough to share with the world. 

And now to those who post all this wisdom. Do you really practice what you preach? I think it is important for those who like to post quotes to believe in the sentiment it carries and to make a real effort to live by it. What example are you to your followers/readers if you just post stuff to make sure your timeline stays active? Remember, many of them do not know you personally, but some of them are friends and family and they will watch you closely to make sure your words are not just empty bubbles floating in the ethernet.

You see, posting a quote like the one above must be enlightening for everyone, including the person who posts. Also, we need to keep in mind that it is not only famous people who have the right to be quoted, ordinary people like us can be quoted too. 

So today I challenge you to send me your own personal life quotes, whether it is amusing, depressing, exalting or intensely intellectual. I would love to read it and maybe, just maybe, I’ll even post some of them!

Send your quotes by completing the form below.

 

“I am happy and grateful for everything I have and receive daily.”
