“[Buy Wisdom, Education, Insight] [16] Listen with respect to the father who raised you, and when your mother grows old, don’t neglect her. Buy truth—don’t sell it for love or money; buy wisdom, buy education, buy insight. Parents rejoice when their children turn out well; wise children become proud parents. So make your father happy! Make your mother proud!” Proverbs 23:24 MSG

Spiritual Muscle WorkOUT

The Bible tells us we need to confront issues.  Some of us are trying to get away from some things that we need to go through. Anytime we are running from something or hiding from something it has power and authority over us.

Today is a new day.  We are not helpless.  We can make tomorrow better than yesterday!

Scripture states that God has given us a spirit of discipline and self-control.

2 Timothy 1:7 New International Version (NIV)

7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

Let discipline and self-control be your God-given weapons today against the enemy!

We can change our mindsets & adopt a new attitude.

It takes practice, truth & strength.

We can do it!

Yesterday is over & today is a new day!

We will be set free from pain, strong holds, unhealthy choices & from yesterday or yesteryears! 

 

Luke 4:18-19 NIV

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”[f]

We must fight the good fight = )

Honest about your faults takes Strength…

#484 Be Honest About Your Faults

Approval-seekers feel a necessity to put themselves in a better light than they really are. Because they try to hide their faults, they are nervous about others finding out what they’re really like. Their situation is like that of a spy in enemy territory.

If, however, they are honest about their mistakes and faults, they will be much more relaxed. They will also find that others behave more positively toward them for their honesty.

While it is not worthwhile to go to the opposite extreme and tell everyone you meet about your faults, if you stop being defensive about your faults, you will live a more serene life.
