Happy Blessed Thursday
We should pray everyday that God gives us more grace and peace as we continue to grow in faith( 2 Peter 1:2). Never allow strife to fill our hearts or enter our homes. Be quick to show love and forgive all. Where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice (James 3:16). At the end of each day we should be able to say that we held ourselves to a certain standard and walked in a manner worthy of the Lord (Col 1:10). Ephesians 6:12 “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places”.
2 Peter 1 (NLT)
3 By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. 4 And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
5 In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.
8 The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.
Be blessed, keep God first and keep looking up,
