Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose. Philippians 2:12-13
God uses His heavenly resources to equip us to do His will. What hope and joy this brings! God Himself undertakes the task of shaping us into His servants provided we are willing to obey His instructions. The LORD will perfect that which concerns me.“ (Psalm 138:8)
Lord, Help me to obey You, walk me into every good work that is in Your will. I do not have what it takes to fulfill Your will for me. I often put my hope in vain places, please do in me only what You can do, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment.
The second is: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.

No longer do I call you servants…I have called you friends. John 15:15
What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer…
Everything, absolutely everything-our worries, our pain, our weaknesses, our failures, our sorrows, our deepest secrets, we don’t need to carry them for a moment. He is our friend. He’d do anything for us. He laid down His life for us. Why don’t we carry our burdens to Him, today? See what peace He would offer in exchange for our turmoil.

Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Luke 8:7
You can’t hear God when your mind is full of thoughts, worries, fears, and plans, or if you always have the TV on or you are constantly on your phone.
All of these distractions are what Jesus was referring to in Luke 8 as weeds. He says, those weeds grew with the seed and strangled it. If you are always on the go you can’t hear God. Weeds are a sign of neglect. When you neglect your time with God, the weeds start to grow in your life. 1 Kings 19:12 says, when God spoke to Elijah, it wasn’t in a wind or earthquake or fire; it was in a gentle whisper. If you want to hear God’s, you have to be still in His presence.
Verse of the Day : 14 January 2018
Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.
