10 Scriptures That Will Change Your Life!

You have to decide to be the “change.” 

Once you have decided to give your all to God, change is necessary. You will love like Jesus loves, you will forgive those that hurt you, you will want to serve without being asked, you will seek God in all that you do, you will read his word, you will know that you are who God says you are, you will choose not to stress nor worry about things out of your control, you will pray without ceasing, you will encourage others, you will not talk about others behind their back, you will worship when you don’t feel like it, and you will cheer others on as they move closer to God. 

CHANGE IS NECESSARY!


Zephaniah 3:17(NIV)

17 The Lord your God is with you,
    the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
    in his love, he will no longer rebuke you,
    but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Isaiah 43:2(NIV)

When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;

    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.

Joshua 1:9 (NIV)

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

John 14:27 (NIV)

27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

A Woman Of Noble Character: 31 Noble Characteristics Of A Proverbs 31 Woman….

AN EPHESIANS 5 MAN PURSUES A PROVERBS 31 WOMAN IN ORDER TO CREATE THE AUTHENTIC, PURE, AND LONGLASTING 1 CORINTHIANS 13 LOVE.


Have you ever really thought about how to become a “WOMAN OF NOBLE CHARACTER?”

Does this statement mean that you will become “perfect” by striving to become a Proverbs 31 woman? The answer is No! The only perfect person was Jesus, but what sets the Proverbs 31 woman apart, is that she allowed God to mold her and make her into who she was.

She walked closely beside God wanting first and foremost to please him and then everything else flowed from that.

Each day we should strive to become a Proverbs 31 woman. God honors those that try each day to be more like him. We are called to be set apart and not to live and do things  like the world, we are called to see beauty from within, we are called to equip and encourage other women to advance further in the kingdom of God and we are called to shine our lights boldly, courageously and intensively in honor of our Lord and saviour, Jesus Christ.


PROVERBS 31:10-31 (NIV)

10 A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants
.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings, she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Do You See?

DO YOU SEE WHAT GOD SEES IN YOUR CHILDREN?

Beyond what your children do, how they behave, why they do things a certain way, and what talents and skills that they have, do you truly see what God sees in them?

Ask yourself these 20 questions today…

  1.   Are you pushing your kids to be who you want them to be or are you pushing them to be who God says they are?

2. Do you push your children toward using their spiritual gifts?

3. Do you know why they react to certain situations in certain ways?

4. Are you teaching them by example how to love others like Jesus, to forgive those that hurt them, to show kindness to ALL God’s creations, to have compassion, gratitude, and to be humble?

5. Are you teaching them and showing them what the word of God says and how to live a Godly life?

6. Are you teaching them how to pray and study God’s word?

7Are you talking with them about how God may be speaking to each them?

8. Are you pushing them to pray more and to rely fully on God?

9. Are you being their “spiritual” cheerleader?

10. Do you talk, teach and guide them into a better understanding of their spiritual gifts?

11. Do you encourage them to pray for others?

12. Do you talk with them about their dreams?

13. Are you real, vulnerable and honest with them about your past mistakes and how God has transformed you?

14. Do you even know what your children’s spiritual gifts are?

15. Do you truly listen when they are speaking to you?

16. Have you dedicated your kids to God?

17. Do you believe and know that God has a purpose in their life?

18. Do you push them to be authentic and themselves?

19. Do you speak positive affirmations to them daily?

20. Do you truly see who God has created them to be?


These are wonderful questions that each parent should ponder on and be asking themselves.

We should be asking to have “eyes” that can truly see who are children are meant to be in Christ.

We should be encouraging our children to “step out, be bold and courageous for God.”  

We should be teaching them the ways in which God wants to use them in their gifts and callings. 


TODAY IS THE DAY AND NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE SONS & DAUGHTERS OF GOD TO RISE UP!!!

Our children are highly favored & loved by God and it is our job to help them reach their true destiny!

It is not their children’s pastors or youth pastors job to lead them, it is our job as parents…
