“Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
You are God’s representative in this earth. When you follow the Word of God and allow Him to work in your life, you are letting your light shine. When you are good to people and show them kindness, even when they don’t deserve it, you are shining your light. When you smile and keep a good attitude, even when things don’t go your way, you are setting an example so that people will glorify God in heaven. Notice this scripture says, “they will see your good works…” People aren’t impressed by our knowledge or what we say, people are drawn to God by our good works.
Ask the Lord to show you ways to share His goodness with others. Look for opportunities to let your light shine everywhere you go - at home, at work, in the grocery store, at the gym. There’s always an opportunity to be an example of God’s goodness. As you do, it will bring honor and glory to God; and when you honor Him, He always honors you. He will continue to pour out His abundant blessing in every area of your life.
"Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the LORD will do to all the enemies you are going to fight."
I apologize that it’s been so long. My life has been pretty hectic, with lots of ups and downs. At times I wondered how I could even handle the things that were going on in my life. I’m still struggling but it is getting better and I’m thankful for that.
I picked this bible verse because it expresses how I’ve felt all week, all month, all year, and all of my life. I am constantly fighting battles with myself, others, even things in my life that I can’t control or can but choose not to. Ultimately, though, if I show my love for God in times of struggle and strife he will help me persevere through the hardest of struggles. I know this because he has helped me when dealing with my ups and downs from my bipolar disorder or with everyday life things like time management and just making it through the day.
I am so happy for the relationship and connection I have with God that I can trust him with my whole life and that He will help me fight those enemies that haunt me every day. Also I can do is pray that I will make it through and continue to worship and praise God for all that he does for His children. I am loved and protected and that’s all I need in life.
You were made in the image of God. This is who you are to your very core. No matter what you like about yourself or don’t like about yourself, your identity is in God.
GOD won’t fail you on We Heart It.
The Bible tells us that when you pray, have faith, and you will receive it. Faith moves mountains. Faith pleases God. Faith is what opens doors. What is faith? It’s believing in God and His goodness. It’s knowing that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Faith is believing that the promises of God are true. It’s obeying His Word. It’s what causes you to act.
Where does faith come from? Scripture tells us that everyone is given a measure of faith; that faith grows by hearing the Word of God. Simply put, the more you hear the Word of God, the more real it becomes in your life and the easier it is to believe His promises.
It doesn’t matter how much faith you have today, begin growing your faith by choosing to obey God’s Word. As you hear and obey the Word, your faith will strengthen, and you will receive what you’ve been believing for in Jesus’ name!
