Some seasons bring joy.

WISDOM
THE BIBLE SAYS:
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Luke 2: 52
As Jesus grew , he grew in wisdom and understanding of the nature of heavenly things and of his specific mission and purpose.
As wise as He was he humbled himself.
As we study the Bible we find that meekness, humility as well as wisdom are attributes of Christian maturity.
As Jesus increases our wisdom and our understanding of him
We may be elevated, people may look up to us but we must remain humble and exemplify meekness, humbleness, kindness, and forgiveness .

EMMANUEL
THE BIBLE SAYS:
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
Matthew 1:23
We identify with Jesus because Jesus identifies with us.
When we call Jesus “Emmanuel” which means God with us.
He identifies with us in our human predicament.
Jesus identifies with us not only in our joys, but also in our sorrow, poverty, hunger, and suffering.
Not one of us is hurt but that he is hurt.He knows and understands Disappointment, Sorrow and Rejection.
Whatever you may be going through, just remember that Jesus feels it too.
Jesus knows all about our struggles,
He will guide till the day is done;
There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus,
No, not one! No , not one.
Emmanuel.

Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
PSALM 27:14
Life is filled with confusion and sometimes despair.
Slam the door on Fear.
Reconnect with the Word of God.
Take courage…Courage is remaining faithful when nobody’s looking
Courage is enduring pain when you are alone.
Courage is standing alone when you are misunderstood
Courage is just saying “No” When everyone else is saying yes.
You got it! Now show it!

WITHDRAW AND PRAY
THE BIBLE SAYS:
And He withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
Luke 5: 16
Here’s the thing….if Jesus withdrew to pray….we should too.
Get away from all distractions, if early morning works for you….Get Up!!!
Find a place in your place to pray.
I find that just a little talk with Jesus
Makes things and people and myself alright.
Here’s another thing…..
Jesus is waiting on us
Ask and it shall be given
Seek and it may be found
Knock and the door shall be opened.
Find that place.

GIVE GOD THE GLORY
THE BIBLE SAYS:
But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD which exercise loving-kindness, judgement and righteousness., in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
JEREMIAH 9:24
Let not the wise person, the powerful person, or the rich person think they got there on their own.
None is excused from trouble.
Keep your eyes on the Cross!
The Cross reminds every Christian that we should boast in God who sent Jesus to atone for the sins of the whole world.
The Cross should keep us humble with hearts that are too full of Thanksgiving to have room for boasting in our own accomplishments.

The Extravagant Gift
The Bible says:
Wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world.
Mark 14: 3-9
The story of the woman who gave an Extravagant gift to Jesus.
This story is in all four gospels.

And why was this story considered so important that it should accomplish the preaching of throughout history and throughout the world?
She was so thankful of how Christ had changed her…..she gave her best.
And like the woman…when we give our best, the fragrance will spread to others.
