Background

let us learn

I’m a writer. I write. I found these in an old journal.

· My sin made me learn; my discipline made me fear; my fear brought forth faith; my faith will bring joy.

· Romans 4:5“But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners.” It doesn’t matter if you do well or if you mess up…all that matters is that you had faith. Faith is useless if we’re perfect.

· Romans 4:20-21“Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was absolutely convinced that God was able to do anything he promised.”

· My interpretation on Proverbs 31:10-30

(10) If it is God’s will for you to be a wife and we wait on God, we build a real relationship with Christ while we wait. Not only are we worth so much to Christ for our faithfulness but we will be worth “more than precious rubies” to our husbands.

(11) A good wife can be trusted. She will greatly enrich her husband’s life. She will not seek to hinder him but instead help him all her life.

(13-19) She isn’t lazy. She is hardworking and useful to her family. She is resourceful with money.

(20) She is helpful and unselfish when it comes to helping others

(21-22) She makes sure certain needs of her family are met—works as a team with her husband.

(25-27) She is strong and respectable. She isn’t afraid of the future because of her faith in God. Her words are wise and kind.

(28-29) Her children respect her and her husband thinks she is the most amazing woman.

(30) Only the fear of the Lord allows her to receive praise—inner beauty, not outer.

· Psalm 5:8“Lead me in the right path, O Lord, or my enemies will conquer me. Tell me clearly what to do, and show me which way to turn” Beautiful. Lord, I want to live abundantly and effectively. I want my life to have purpose in You. Shine Your light to the right path. I will follow.

· Psalm 54:6“I will sacrifice a voluntary offering to you; I will praise your name, O Lord, for it is good.” Have you given God something VOLUNTARILY that you really wanted? He takes that sacrifice and turns it into something beautiful; something to exemplify His glory.

· Psalm 89:8b“You are entirely faithful”. ENTIRELY faithful!! Through the good and the bad. Even in the bad, He’s faithful because it shows he represents who he says he is by being our Father; guiding us, and disciplining us! He’s faithful with his promises of being our Father!

· Spiritual Warfare: Ephesians 6

1) Belt of TRUTH—you know what the Spirit is telling you! You know what kind of peace you have in your heart. Doubt is NOT truth!! Satan=doubt.

2) Body armor of God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS—Everything good and amazing about God—something we will never reach—covers our entire body! He covers us with His righteousness!

3) Shoes of PEACE—Having peace in your spirit prepares you for any attack from Satan. Hold onto that peace because Satan wants nothing more than for you to forget you have it!

4) Shield of FAITH—The shield protects us from fiery arrows of the devil. Faith gets us through the battle!

5) Helmet of SALVATION—Jesus is in you and he is on your side! Don’t fight alone!

6) Sword of SPIRIT—All that you’ve learned is carried in your spirit! The word is there…USE IT!

· Did you live for today? Did you serve somebody? Did you represent who Jesus is by letting your light shine? Did you allow Satan to have a foothold in any area of your life?

· 1 Corinthians 1:27-29“And He chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important”. SAY WHAT?! The struggle of sin makes me POWERLESS but it will be used, once broken, to shame those who are POWERFUL. Or, the sin is powerful so it will be crushed once broken. The power will be gone. The importance of the world will be crushed to NOTHING because it doesn’t matter!

· Your salvation gives you a new life and a new outlook where you should set your thoughts on Heaven instead of Earth. Like Mary, fixate on Jesus! Unlike Martha, don’t be worried about perfection or the details. Have NOTHING to do with shameful desires! Watch out for idolatry—what consumes your mind more than Heavenly thoughts? Salvation enables us to get rid of sin—surrender it at the feet of Jesus! It doesn’t matter who you are—your background—Christ loves you and that’s all that matters! Because of my love for Christ, I should be clothed in:

Kindness
Hatred
Gentleness
Pushy
Humility
Pride
Patience
Anxiousness
Forgiveness
Bitterness
Love
Hate
