God Will Provide // Mindful Minute

There are over 169 verses in the bible that show us the ways God provides for our needs. “My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”. Philippians 4:19

Like a good parent however God will never give us something that will harm us. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be difficult times.  “More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces home and home doesn’t put us to shame because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5

God has plans to prosper us, and not harm us. Plans to give us a future filled with hope. Jeremiah 29:11 We must simply trust Him.

Grace Alone // Mindful Minute

How do we ensure our eternal salvation? Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road the leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few will find it.” There is only one way to ensure our salvation. “For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; it is not from works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9. “He is the one who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not based on our works but on his own purpose and grace, granted to us in Christ Jesus before time began” 2 Timothy 1:9. “For he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in his sight in love.” Friends, the road that leads to life is so narrow in fact that there is only ONE way to endure eternal salvation. It is not by good works or anything that we can do on our own. We can’t “earn” it and we have done nothing to deserve it. It is by God’s grace alone through the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross that we are promised life. If you have not ensured your eternal salvation; If you have not taken the narrow road; I encourage you to seek God’s grace before it is too late. We are not promised a tomorrow, but by God’s grace through Jesus, we are promised eternity.  

Word of God // Mindful Minute

Did you know that the Bible is a collection of books from dozens of authors over hundreds of years? Even with all of this diversity, there is one common theme: God’s relationship with us. As Christians, we often look to the Bible for guidance and encouragement in our walk with Christ. It deals with timeless questions such as who we are, where we came from, why we’re here, where we’re going and how we should live. The Bible is the best-selling book of all time with an estimated 5 billion copies being printed in over 250 languages.

The Bible is the living, breathing word of God. In 2 Timothy 3:16-17, we read, “Every scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work.” “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing even to the point of dividing soul from spirit, and joints from marrow; it is able to judge the desires and thought of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12.

If you desire to know the true nature of our creator, the Bible is the book for you. I encourage you to read the Bible and read it often. It is the best way to grow a more meaningful and deeper relationship with God. It is after all the best-selling book of all time.

Ambition // Mindful Minute

Ambition is defined as the strong desire to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work. The problem is ambition can lead to self-centered thinking. “Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself. Each of you should be concerned not only about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well.” Philippians 2:3-4. As Christians, we should instead focus on spreading the good news. “But I do not consider my life worth anything to myself, so that I may finish my task as the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24. “You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had…” Philippians 2:5, and “Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God without blemish though you live in a crooked and perverse society, in which you shine as lights in the world.” Philippians 2:14-25. The world is lost, it needs Jesus. “There is therefore now no condemnation for these who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1. Don’t let your ambition get in the way of God’s Grace for yourself or others. 

Sabbath // Mindful Minute

The health benefits of rest are well known and documented. It can allow time for recovery, prevent muscle fatigue, reduce the risk of injury, and can even improve performance. With the benefits of rest so well known, why do we resist it so much?

Even God, the creator of the universe found time to rest (Genesis 2:3). And the fourth commandment reminds us to “remember the Sabbath day.” (Exodus 20:8) If the creator found time to rest and called it holy, who are we to think we have the power to do more?

Forget the troubles of the world. Relax and spend time with the family. Stop the stress/fatigue cycle. Find your Sabbath.
