Talking The Talk, But Not Walking The Walk. Human Sorrow Can Turn Into A Pity Party, But Godly Sorrow Brings Repentance, Which Results In Restoration

1-Peter_5-6: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

1-Peter_5-6: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death. And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

Luke 22:33-34

 

James_4-10: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up

James_4-10: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up

King David made some mistakes that caused much trouble for him and his family. Abraham missed God and brought problems into this world that we are still dealing with today! Then in the New Testament, we see Peter, the rock, Jesus’ right hand man, talking the talk, but not walking the walk! He said he would die for Jesus, but when a servant girl and two men questioned him, he denied Jesus three times, just as Jesus had foretold. If you read the Scriptures about Peter thoroughly, you will find out that Peter was a rough, honest, and proud man. When he said that he would die for Jesus, he meant it! However, when the pressure was on, he went back on his word; he didn’t stand for his faith, and he denied the One whom he loved. When Peter realized that he had missed it, he was devastated. The Bible says that Peter “went out and wept bitterly.”

 

Isaiah_53-4: Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isaiah_53-4: Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

You may have missed it, and you may be agonizing over your mistakes. Human sorrow can turn into a pity party, but Godly sorrow brings repentance, which results in restoration. Jesus restored Peter and he fulfilled God’s plan for his life. God will restore you as well. Stop agonizing over your mistakes; go to God, receive His forgiveness, and move on!

 

 

 

Prayer

 

Father, I put down my pride as I look to You for restoration. I will no longer agonize over my mistakes, but I will rejoice in Your mercy as I move forward, in Jesus’ name, Amen!

 

 

 

 

 

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

 

 

 

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Don’t be afraid to ask others for help

Matthew_7-6: Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you

Matthew_7-6: Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you

Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in Heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him.Matthew 7:9-11

Are you reluctant to ask for help? You’re definitely not alone. Too many of us are unwilling to admit we need help. We think it’s a sign of weakness. But it’s really a sign of pride and self-sufficiency, both which go against the grain of a healthy dependence upon God and the power of His Holy Spirit in our lives.

God wants to give you good things. He’s hoping you’ll humbly admit that you have needs. Don’t be afraid to ask others for help.  Remember, God made us to relate to one another, to love one another. We weren’t made to live life alone. If you’re “the strong” one that is always lending a hand and seeing to it that others are taken care of, it’s hard for you to let someone know you need help, but it’s important that you do.

“Refusing to ask for help when you need it is refusing someone the chance to be helpful.” – Ric Ocasek

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

The power of humility

“For by grace given me I say to every one of you. Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself only with sober judgement in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.”  Romans 12:3

Humility is the opposite of pride. It is a mental attitude of holiness and its major characteristic is not thinking of oneself more highly than one ought to.

Jesus said to the woman with a possessed daughter “it is not right to give bread to a dog.” many would call that a mean statement. At that point she could have reacted negatively to the degrading statement made by Jesus, but she did not. The humility with which she accepted the statement, made Jesus confirm her faith “O woman great is thy faith, be it unto thee even as thou wilt” and her daughter was made whole immediately.

It is humility that brings a soul to nothing before God, which also removes every hindrance to faith. One can only wonder what would have become of her daughter if she had reacted in pride like many would have.

Pride does not pay; the path to a higher life is from down upward, this is because; humility is the key to total sanctification and exaltation.

I must decrease that He (Christ) might increase!

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
