Philippians 2:3-4

Do nothing from (according to) selfishness (contentiousness) or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.
Philippians 2:3‭-‬4 NASB

God, in this world that is “all about me”, I confess my selfishness and empty conceit. I  pray I will not be selfishly ambitious but proclaim the name of Christ from pure motives. I pray I will obey the truth and run from unrighteousness to obey righteousness. I  pray, Lord God for Your church, that we will not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another but to be devoted to one another in brotherly love giving preference to one another in honor. May we be subject to one another in the fear of our Lord, Jesus Christ, in His name and for His glory, amen.
Romans 2:8/Philippians 1:17/Galatians 5:26/Romans 12:10/Ephesians 5:21 NASB

🌹Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification.
Romans 15:1‭-‬2 NASB

Faithful to be Helpful

Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification.
Romans 15:1‭-‬2 NASB

We all have strong characteristics and we all have weak characteristics. That is the marvelous blessing of the church. Together, where we are weak, we are strong. None of us are perfect but together we can uphold, edify one another, bringing glory to God in His church.

🌹Taking our eyes off of ourselves and looking to what is good for others will change the dynamics of a church and bring glory to God.

Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions.
Romans 14:1 NASB

Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
Galatians 6:2‭-‬3 NASB

Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor.
1 Corinthians 10:24 NASB

for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ;
Ephesians 4:12 NASB

God is My Good

When my heart was embittered And I was pierced within, Then I was senseless and ignorant; I was like a beast before You. Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand. With Your counsel You will guide me, And afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. For, behold, those who are far from You will perish; You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to You. But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.
Psalms 73:21‭-‬28 NASB

🌹 But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.

I Love You, Lord

I love the Lord, because He hears My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.
Psalms 116:1‭-‬2 NASB

My God:

“I love You, O Lord, my strength.”
I have called upon You, for You will answer me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, hear my speech. Wondrously show Your lovingkindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.
Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be to me a rock of strength, A stronghold to save me. For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me. Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have ransomed me, O Lord, God of truth.
Psalms 18:1 NASB, Psalms 17:6‭-‬8 NASB, Psalms 31:2‭-‬3‭, ‬5 NASB

🌹I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. Since I am afflicted and needy, Let the Lord be mindful of me. You are my help and my deliverer; Do not delay, O my God.
Psalms 40:1‭, 2 NASB

O God My Salvation

My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.
My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.
Psalms 62:1‭-‬2‭, ‬5‭-‬8 NASB

Do you know God as your rock? Your stronghold? Your hope? Your strength? Your refuge? Your trust?

Troubles? Burdens? Feel lost?

🌹Wait in silence for God only. Pour out your heart before Him; God is our refuge.

Great is Our Lord

Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable.
Psalms 145:3 NASB

Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.
Psalms 147:5 NASB

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable.
Isaiah 40:28 NASB

Great is our God!
– His greatness is unsearchable.
– He is abundant in strength.
– His understanding is infinite!
– He is everlasting.
– He is Creator of the ends of the earth.
– He does not become weary or tired.
– His understanding is inscrutable (incomprehensible, unfathomable).

Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!
Romans 11:33 NASB

“Can you discover the depths of God? Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?
Job 11:7 NASB

Our God is rich in wisdom and knowledge so why do we walk in our own knowledge and wisdom? Why do we struggle so when God is just a prayer away. Why do we strive for the things which are not of God?
Our God is limitless and unfathomable are His ways. Now is the time to trust Him, turn to Him, follow Him, abide in Him, seek Him.
Slow down, be still, know that great is our God.

🌹Yet those who wait for the Lord Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
Isaiah 40:31 NASB

Gladness of Heart

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before You.
How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O Lord, they walk in the light of Your countenance.
In Your name they rejoice all the day, And by Your righteousness they are exalted.
For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted.
Psalms 89:14‭-‬17 NASB

Are you walking on the solid foundation of God’s righteousnes and justice, enjoying His lovingkindness and truth resonating in and through you?
Our walk with Almighty God is not for “a moment”. A moment of our need. A moment when we are suffering or in despair. Our walk with God is for all the moments, momentS that continue into eternity.
God, how blessed are we who walk in the light of Your countenance and rejoice in Your name ALL day long. It is by Your righteousness alone that we are exalted, for we have no righteousness of our own. You, Lord God, are the glory of our strength. By Your favor we are filled with joy that overflows to others.

🌹With trumpets and the sound of the horn Shout joyfully before the King, the Lord.
Psalms 98:6 NASB

Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.
Psalms 105:3 NASB

Be Strong & Courageous

Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6 NASB

And to Him (Jesus) was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations and men of every language Might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion Which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed. But the saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, for all ages to come.’
Daniel 7:14‭, ‬18 NASB

The sovereign God has established His eternal plan, His eternal kingdom. No fear for the one who believes and trusts in Him. We can be strong and courageous when we walk boldly with God in His kingdom cause.

🌹God will not fail you nor forsake you. Do you believe that? Do you trust Him?
