You can be the greatest obstacle as well as the greatest motivator for yourself. Despite all that is happening in the world and everything we have been through, we give God all the praise and all the glory for keeping us through the pandemic and the changes in the economy. It is only by His grace that we are still alive and that we continue to thrive.
The bible says in Acts 10:38 (NLT), “And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.” We need to be aware of human needs. That means, we need to be free from being self-centered and to shift the focus to others. We need to trust God to empower us through the Holy Spirit to solve problems, and we also need to take action. Some problems will be solved in the church…but most problems are out where people live and interact. Let’s take the grace and power of God out to where people are and pray for them, encourage them, train them, and meet practical needs. The hungry don’t need preaching first, they need food. Let’s continue to show love to our neighbors and everyone we know.
A lot of us still haven’t been able to meet physically but we have kept up with one another virtually. We’re grateful for the opportunity to reach out to people, pray for them, and visit them if possible. Love God and other people genuinely. Love is the celebration of someone’s value or worth. Every human being is created in the image of God. We treat people the way we treat God. Value for human life is at the core of what we do. No nation prosper’s long term without the value for life. Love is the nature of our heavenly father. For those of us who returned back to normalcy, let’s be kind and loving to our neighbors.
We pray that God will give us the grace to apply His word in all areas of our lives and give us the strength to continue to do good. We also ask for divine inspiration to continue to come up with creative solutions during these times.
Have a great month.
