Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.—Gal 5:24
As you start your weekend, ask yourself, “Do I belong to Jesus?” If your answer is yes then it’s important to set aside those worldly desires and fleshly passions.
I know personally that the flesh and it’s desires are a big stumbling block for all of us desiring to follow Jesus. There is hope for us in the Holy Spirit. Let Him lead you through your weekend and then on Monday you can look back and say to our Lord, “Thank you for the power of your Holy Spirit and helping me walk in your way.”
Satan loses again and your faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord, continues to grow. Blessings to you this weekend.
Friday is here which means the weekend is just around the corner. As you relax this weekend take time to thank God for all you have, where you live and the many blessings He’s bestowed upon you. God is a God of love, mercy, grace and understanding. Take Him at His word and receive Jesus as your savior. You’ll be glad you did.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will make your path straight.”—Proverbs 3:5-6
Friday is a day of the week so many look forward to because it represents the coming of the weekend and time for relaxation. Relaxation that does not involve worrying about anything. Just taking it easy is the way to go. Oh, of course the troubles and worries of the week are still there but now is not the time to think about them, or is it?
Prayer time, bible reading and worship throughout the week will give you the peace you need to handle whatever comes your way during the week. There is no need to wait until the weekend to blow off steam. Going to God in prayer and blowing off steam, and yes it’s OK to do that with God because He already knows what you’re dealing with, is permissible.
Asking for, waiting for and receiving God’s guidance on how to live your life and handle the daily pitfalls is as close as a prayer. God understands what you’re going through and wants to help if you’ll let Him.
Before you start your weekend, pray and ask God what’s the best way to live your life and handle the challenges you face. He will be happy to answer you and will invite you to worship Him daily from then on.
Give God a chance. He won’t let you down.
