You Are Beloved

God said that He first loved us and that's why we know how to love others too. This is one of God's commandments and I hope this is written in our hearts indelibly because God is love and when we love, everything will follow smoothly.

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37-39

According to the Bible, we are beloved. This is true and we can hold on to it because it is God's word. Never ever give in to the enemy's trap because we know that he wants our lives to be miserable and hopeless. When we are about to do something and we are hesitant, call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to lead us to the right decision so we won't be deceived by the enemy. The enemy is smart in making people believe his lies by putting so many things in our minds. That's why our minds can never be our basis in decision-making because they can be poisoned. No matter how you tried to understand things whether it s right or wrong, and no matter how hard you convince yourself that what you have analyzed is the right thing to do. You still need God's presence to ensure that you are not going after evil. Without the presence of God, we will be decisive whenever we want.

You are beloved. We know dear brothers and sisters that God loves you and has chosen you to be his own people. 1 Thessalonians 1:1

When our decision-making is surrendered to our Lord, believe that He will only give you the best and lead you to the right path. And you can never go wrong.

I surrender to You my Lord Father, today I open my heart and life to You in a fresh, new way. I surrender every detail, every moment of every day to You. I choose to acknowledge You in all my ways knowing that your hand is upon me in Jesus' name. Amen. Proverbs 3:6


Forget About the Lies You Heard

It is easy for us to hear voices from the people that surround us and sometimes it becomes a noise already which makes us annoyed about it. There are times when the enemy's voice is louder than these people's voices because of the lies put right into our heads without us noticing it. Most of the time, the enemy will take advantage of us when we are alone and if our minds are at peace, he will distract us with these lies. He will put some things in our minds that we thought it is right, but little did we know, it is just a trap so he can see us turning into hopeless ones.

For example, we are hopeful and waiting for some things that we have been praying for, and the enemy will ruin that hope in us and that peace in us while we are alone. That's why to lessen the moment of being alone, surround yourself with fellow believers or Christians or your family so that the enemy will never have the chance to ruin our lives.

You might hear lies from the enemy but never ever follow what he said, just forget it. Sometimes when we think something is right, we thought it is an automatic thing to do. No! Never follow your own understanding because the first thing that the enemy will attack is in our minds.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6


Be Attentive With God’s Word

In the world we are living in, there are so many things that can be followed or done because our minds know how to tell us right and wrong but at the end of the day, it is still our choice which one to follow because not all of us do the right thing. Don't get me wrong, sad to say most of us enjoy doing the wrong ones which lead us to sin.

The world is full of sin, it is everywhere. And that's how the temptation works, it will entice you to do something even if sometimes you don't really want to do it, but you end up doing it anyway for some reason. If the way we live is based on how the world is giving and showing us, we will never find peace, hope, and love, because these things can only be found in God's presence.

When we want to be in God's presence, we only need to open our bibles and be attentive when reading His word. Everything we need is in the bible, especially on how to be a good follower of Christ. Remember, He paid for our sins, and through God's grace, we were all forgiven.

Sin will never go away unless we know how to fight it. Our only weapon is God's word because this will really give us endurance, strength, hope, peace, and joy. All the opposite of these belong to the enemy and we do not want those. Let's ensure that we read the word of God every day, this will make us keep going.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7

Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions. Proverbs 16:21


Bible Verses

Psalm 31:4

Pull me from the trap my enemies set for me, for I find protection in you alone.

Psalm 119:110-111

The wicked have set their traps for me, but I will not turn from your commandments. Your laws are my treasure, they are my heart's delight.

John 8:44

The Devil was a murderer from the beginning, he does not stand in the truth. There is no truth in him. He is a liar and the father of lies.
