And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
So as I research into the belt of truth… I came across this on freebiblestudyguides.org and found it to be powerful…”The world we live in teaches that truth is what we make it—that good and bad are relative and that there are no absolutes, only equally valid opinions. But the Bible teaches that truth is God’s Word—that good and bad are defined by Him and that there are eternal and unchangeable absolutes, uninfluenced by opinions.”
what if a belt with just missing a piece of a segment, it is useless. It must be one continuous piece, to be effective.
now imagine living for God’s way but not in total trust, faith and belief. it’s like that belt that is missing the segment … useless. Our trust in God and his word needs to be solid. It will be a journey but we can all get there and starts with believing the truth…..his word. Amen
Commit your way to the Lord ; trust in him and he will do this:
Psalm 37:5 NIV
I used to not understand what it meant to commit my way to the lord. I knew I still wanted to have control over my life. I wanted to be the deciding factor. It’s this idea of control that keeps us from truly trusting him. So what I do is I take all things to him, and I mean all things.. I don’t just take the big important things to him. I have learned and I learn more each day, there is nothing too big nor too small for our God.
So today take your fears, worries, happiness, joys, pain, hurts, and woes to him – he is listening.
I just had to share this one today!!! awesome!!!
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14 NIV
One of the final sections of “Living on Purpose” talks about living every moment. Are you someone who holds yourself back from joy because of fear, doubt, or maybe being insecure. I remember a time when I was afraid to do things, afraid to put myself out there… omg, what if I suck, what if I fail, what if people laugh or stare at me. I would not do things because I was insecure. Then one day it all changed I realized I wasn’t living to please them, I am living to please the Lord and who cares what others think. I like myself, God loves me, so let’s live the life God has put in front of me.. Here is the thing non of us are guaranteed another day.. today could be the last..When all is said and done, it boils down to faith in Christ, a strong relationship with your family, and a life filled with living God’s purpose. So live life, love those in your life like you never have, and be happy. amen.
