Appreciation

Have you wondered why you can't seem to appreciate others? You are thorny and people seems to get on your nerve?

You cannot appreciate others until you are at peace with yourself. You may be hindered by past rejections, failures and anger that is still dwelling within you.

Pray for God to release you, from your past mistakes and guilt. To release you for joyful obedience.

First, Appreciate what God has done for you instead of comparing with your neigbours. Paul in his letters started by giving thanks to God despite his situation. Have you ever wondered how he is able to ask churches to walk with God even though he himself was imprisoned? Have you wondered the impact of his letters even though he is confined with four walls. God works through us despite the situation that we see.

Next, Start today by Appreciating the little things those around you have done for you. Say thank you or write a card (very rare nowadays with the advent of email and sms). A simple " i appreciate it" goes a long mile. Without you knowing, you are letting God's light shine through you.

In Time of Weakness

We should actively observe the times of weakness of the people around us, not for the purpose of exploiting them but to give them support.

They will be tensed up, depressed and subjected to all kinds of negative thoughts.

For it is In time of weakness that they needed the support most.

In granting support, we should not show superiority but in a meek and earnest tone, from God's love.

Persist in His Strength

Through the Word and prayer, our spiritual life is strengthened.

The people who know their God will firmly resist [the enemy].
- Daniel 11:32

The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love. - Psalm 147:11

Be filled with the Spirit

Are you losing your strength to continue...

Ephesians 5:18, "Do not get drunk on wine... Instead, be filled with the Spirit."

When a person is drunk with wine, he is under the control of that wine. Paul says to be filled with the Spirit, so we can be controlled by the Spirit. As we walk in obedience to the Word of God--submitting ourselves to the Spirit's control and yielding our will to Him day by day--we are walking by the Spirit's power.
