You might need to rise above any negativity going on around you to stay in peace. Doug Addison
November 18, 2017. Don’t stop now. You’re almost finished. I know it is getting hard, but if you stop you will have to start again and make up for lost time. You are good soil, even though at times you don’t think so. Keep going. Take a rest, but don’t stop. Your rest will refresh you so that you will be able to finish with a flourish. Others are watching and learning from your perseverance. Part of your task is teaching.
Luke 8:15 (NASB) “But the seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the Word in an honest and good heart, and hold it fast, and bear fruit with perseverance.” Bev Robinson
November 18, 2017. It only takes a brief moment of your time to give a word of encouragement a brother or sister in Christ. You know well that the spiritual battle is real upon you and other believers. Let Me encourage you to encourage others while it is still called today. Christians all over the world are bombarded with negativity and oppression on a regular basis. See to it that those around you know that they are appreciated and valued.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NLT) “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near.” Kevin Robinson
November 18, 2017. I tell you today, “Do not judge one another.” Do you not see that I have put spiritual laws in place that are true? I tell you not to judge because I love you and I know the law. Therefore, I have put into place the law of sowing and reaping that says if you judge, the same judgment will be returned to you in the same measure with which you judge. I am the only Judge.
Matthew 7:1-2 (NASB) “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.” Jonas Bohlin
