I'm Learning..

I'm learning that Jesus is truly all I need, if I want to be successful I must follow His lead. I'm learning that once God calls us our mind has to be set on the Kingdom and not what doesn't concern Him. (Colossians 3:2- Let heaven fill your thoughts; don’t spend your time worrying about things down here.) I'm learning that life doesn't revolve around me and that my comfort, my desires, my dreams and my plans aren't important to God, but me doing His will is. I'm learning to always check my heart and my motives. I may think I'm doing right but is the Lord convinced? I'm learning to stay humble because if it wasn't for God I wouldn't even be alive right now. Who am I to judge the unsaved? Only God can do that. I'm learning to pray for people instead of talking about them. I'm learning that God is love and in order for someone to truly love you they have to know God. I'm learning to be patient, God's timing is not my timing. 1000 days to us is 1 day to God and 1 day to God is 1000 days to us. I'm learning not to be prideful because the same way I got it is the same way it can be taken away from me. I'm learning that it's not bad for me to be tempted because every time I overcome temptation it makes me stronger. (James 1:2-4-Dear brothers, is your life full of difficulties and temptations? Then be happy, for when the way is rough, your patience has a chance to grow. So let it grow, and don’t try to squirm out of your problems. For when your patience is finally in full bloom, then you will be ready for anything, strong in character, full and complete.) I'm learning that the devil doesn't have control over me anymore, sin is no longer my master, I serve God now.

Romans 6

I'm learning to have faith, there's so many stories in the Bible of people who had faith and who am I to doubt God when all things are possible with Him. God knows my future better than me. Of course everything doesn't make sense to me or I may not see the bigger picture but that's where faith comes in. I walk by faith not by sight.

Hebrews 11

You see during my walk with God I'm learning so much, especially about myself. You never reach your destination as a Christian, you may know a lot, but there's still more for you to learn, there's still more growing for you to do. You find out 1 thing about yourself that God doesn't like and next thing you know He's revealing another thing to you. I'm learning that the only person I need to please is God. (2 Peter 3:14-Dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen and for Him to come, try hard to live without sinning; and be at peace with everyone so that He will be pleased with you when He returns.)
