Sexual Connection

Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. I Corinthians 7:1‭-‬3 NKJV

*Notice it says have your own husband and your own wife..Not have your own boyfriend or girlfriend. Also, each roll in sexually connecting is gender specified.  Don't get caught up in what the world depicts as ok in satisfying your sexual hunger. Secure yourself, guilt and negative consequence free, in God.

Actions Speak Louder than Words

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. James 3:13 NKJV

*Wisdom is indicated, and not just stated. Anyone can offer advice and sound good, but do they walk out the wisdom that God gave them? Do they progress as much as they pass on verbally?

The Art of Restoration

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:1‭-‬2 NKJV

*Notice how the word tells us to gently restore the person. Many believers have lost the art of gentleness. Instead they throw the book at others while they are in hiding with their sin, or go off on someone in order to shame them into what you think they should be doing. I think the saddest course of action is just ignoring people who fall short all together, and not wanting to "involve" yourself in the restoration process. This is why it is important to be led on how to handle people, and to have a heart of empathy. Otherwise, you may be doing more harm than help in "the name of the Lord."

God Will Serve "It" to You

All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. John 6:37 NKJV

*This is so true...All that God has ever given to me has come to me, and I never had to chase it. I grow tired, weary, annoyed, and concerned like the next person. The difference is that I don't hold on to that, I trust God, & I won't give up. God is too real and awesome for that....#HoldOn2HisPromises

Leave It to God

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Psalms 46:10 NKJV

*Sometimes we need to remember who God is, and the fact that He always has everything under control. We don't have to do anything extra when we trust Him, & allow Him to guide us. People of this world have different plans to get them through...Ones that take more work, but as a believer what don't have to do what everyone else is doing when you trust in God.

Believe & Receive

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20‭-‬21 NKJV

*No matter what we think or how we feel,   we have to remember God's capabilities and His promises. His word does not come back voided. The key is patience, obedience, and faith...

Forgiveness

And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 NKJV

*Forgiveness doesn't come as easy as people think. We nay have forgiven the person, but if you become disgusted on the inside when you think of them, that's not forgiveness. Forgiveness is truly letting go and allowing God to take over...Washing your mind and emotions of the physical issue.
