For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] will not be disappointed [in his expectations].” For there is no distinction between Jew and Gentile; for the same Lord is Lord over all [of us], and [He is] abounding in riches (blessings) for all who call on Him [in faith and prayer]. For “ whoever calls on the name of the Lord [in prayer] will be saved .” Romans 10: 11 - 13 AMP
Todays nuggets is about maintaining our connections and positivity with everyone:
It is so very weird, that I must admit when this whole crazy thing started I went to wearing my full armor of God and bashing the enemy with my sword. But as everyone else, I have slowed down until recently. I was reminded of a favorite verse that keeps me on my toes “Sin is crouching at your door you must master it – says the Lord” This verse is my favourite because of how Loving and Amazing God is. He will never scream and say what have done??? but will always encourage us to walk by faith not by sight. We see this in action as Jesus spoke to Martha.
So as I am encouraged by our Wonderful Holy Spirit daily, London is going to lockdown from Thursday. The whole world needs prayers, and so much craziness happening in the world. Our Prayers are needed and we need to stand by faith and believe in our God.
But Martha became exasperated by finishing the numerous household chores in preparation for her guests, so she interrupted Jesus and said, “Lord, don’t you think it’s unfair that my sister left me to do all the work by myself? You should tell her to get up and help me.” Luke 10:40 TPT
Become a better you:
To become a better me, the m needs to change to w flip it from me to we.
The truth is becoming a better me is definitely not to complain about what others are doing or not doing. I have been both of these sisters and I prefer Mary, the relaxed one which means 80% of the time I am Martha getting all worked up for no reason and you have to love the answer Jesus gave “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Are they really that important? Luke 10:41b
As we go into the lockdown again I am reminded of what is really important to God, and that is choosing to sit at His feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.” Luke 10:41c
It is a privilege to sit at His feet, so becoming a better us is doing what He requires us to do and for us to do it. Me needs to be WE and that is the only way the body functions properly.
One habit at time:
Sitting at the foot of Christ means we are focused and not distracted by the world. It is amazing how much work can be done when we do it one at time instead of multi tasking.
One hand full of rest and patience is better than two fists full of labor and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6 AMP
Know your value to others:
We are all one body and very valuable in the body of Christ. Not a single member in the body is less valuable for we are all chosen by Christ and as we hear His voice we become part of that body. He is the head, for without the head the body doesn’t function. Some are seen and some are hidden but we are all one in the Spirit. And very important to God.
Contribution brings satisfaction:
It is true when God says that the greatest is the servant among you, there is much satisfaction in bringing yourself to the table. The gifts God has given us is always for us, if you can sing don’t just sing in the shower but sing for your family.
Look for opportunities to help others. Everyone has a need that we have in us to serve that need, some needs are just a listening ear or a smile.
One thing I am learning is that everything God gives us to do not only helps others but actually helps both parties participating.
Impact on your outlook, your resilience and positivity:
Staying in the word of God gives us the resilience that we need and that brings about a positive aspect in life.
Self respect and self worth is great because if you don’t love yourself you are not going to love someone else. The word of God lets us see ourselves as God sees us.
When you fly on an airplane, the flight attendant instructs you to “put your oxygen mask on first,” before helping others. … Because if you run out of oxygen yourself, you can’t help anyone else with their oxygen mask. COVID19 is a very long flight and we need to put our mask on first (full armour of God) and that is the only way we are going to help each other out.
I know that this year has given us a challenge to provoke growth in us, remember to wear your mask and armour of God each day.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. Hannah Michaela The Holy Spirit is found in the Bible and nowhere else, always ask God for an encounter with Him and not by how others do it.
