6 Things You should Say Every Day of Your Life - Part 2

By Joyce Meyer

I'm telling the truth-no matter what

Most Christians probably think, I don't have problem with lying. But sometimes telling the truth hurts and we just don't want to hurt or offend people or risk our reputation.

 I honestly believe if you're going to be committed to the truth, at some point, you're going to have to admit your weaknesses and make hard choices.

Ephesians 4:14 tells us to let our lives lovely express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly].

I encourage you to be committed to the truth. Cherish it. Hang on to it, no matter what it costs you. You won't regret it!

Gods Word Is In My Vocabulary

Jeremiah 23:28 says, "...Let the one who has my word speak it faithfully...". The message translation of Jeremiah 23:29 says the truth is like "a sledgehammer busting a rock' into pieces. I love that!

Sometimes you have to hit a nut or a shell over and over again until it cracks open and you can enjoy the fruit inside. Well, people can be seem as hard but God's Word can open them right up.

Keep speaking the Word of God. Make it part of  your everyday vocabulary.

I'm going to say just enough

The book of Proverbs is filled with scriptures about holding your tongue. Proverbs 17:28 says, "Even a fool when he holds his peace is considered wise; when he close his lip he is esteemed a man of understanding."

Before you start talking about things you feel strongly about, ask yourself how much you really need to say. Get quiet and listen to what God is saying. You'll never regret saying what He wants you to say, the way He would say it.

It's easy to focus on things we shouldn't say or do, but that usually just leads to defeat. I want to encourage you to concentrate on the positive things you should say and do instead. As Romans 12: 31 says, we overcome evil with good. So make it your goal to do what is good before God, and enjoy the freedom and victory it brings  to your life!

When it’s all said & done

Learning to pursue what truly matters
Years ago, I got to a place in my life where things were going pretty well… I had everything I pretty much asked for. Yet I still had this vague feeling of discontentment. Something was just not right on the inside.
Have you ever felt that way? Maybe you’ve wondered, What’s wrong with me?, like I did.       
Although I wanted all of the “fruit” of God’s spirit – love, joy, peace, patience – operating in my life, I wasn’t seeking it. So spiritually speaking, I wasn’t a very deep person. I has my priorities backwards…as many of us do at times. We want the money, the house, the promotion or whatever that thing is, So we pursue that rather than the true treasure of God’s presence.
But just like a tree needs deep, wide- reaching roots in order to support big, strong branches that can withstand the harsh elements of the outdoors, Christians need to be deeply rooted and grounded in the Word of God. It’s His love that sustains us- not our “stuff,”
 Don’t …

God Made Us UniQue Part 2

But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.
                                                                                                                                        Jeremiah 18:4

Yet, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you our Potter, and we all are the work of your hand.                                                                                                                                       Isaiah 64:8

·Marred – to detract from the perfection or wholeness of: spoil  

I know a lot of you girls have heard of the potter. For those that haven’t heard of the potter, it is a person that works with clay and forms it into a pot, using a machine and his hands. Potters work real hard forming clay into a pot. When the clay is marred, he has to redo his work until it comes out perfect. This is an awesome example on how God forms us. See God is the Pot…

A Lifestyle of Authentic Peace

I can’t overemphasize the importance of peace as a real and practical benefit of our covenant relationship with God. His peace should not be an infrequent surprise but an ongoing rule of our lives. The apostle Paul underscored the essential nature of peace in 2 Thessalonians 3:16.  Did you notice how crucial he considered peace to be? “At all times.” “In every way,” Peace can be possible in any situation.
Isaiah used the word peace twenty-six times. God continually promised peace when His captives returned wholeheartedly to the Lord. The familiar messianic passage, Isaiah 9:6, identifies peace with Christ as the “Prince of Peace,” The next verse connects the Prince of Peace to His reign: Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne. Many of us have memorized the words of Isaiah 26:3: You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trust in you.
