I'm going through one of the most toughest challenges in my life right now... I can't lie, it's hard.. Being strong isn't easy sometimes. But I want to encourage anyone who is going through tough times to keep holding on. Remind yourself to be strong and speak positive! There is power in your words! Decree and declare positive and keep praying. God will see us through we just gotta hold on and believe! ❤️ love you family
If it's one thing I've realized on this journey is that you'll lose people. People you'll never thought of losing will abandon you because of the choices you make in terms of following Christ. But if it's one thing I've learned, it's that in Him is ALL things! So just have faith and believe and keep pursuing Him, and everything you've lost, God will restore it in double!
The only way to receive grace & everlasting peace is through our Father & our Lord Jesus Christ. What is grace? It is the free & unmerited favor of God, manifested in the salvation of sinners & the bestowal of blessings. In other words, to receive grace, you must have salvation. Belief in the death & the Ressurection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Grace.
As I took a look into this scripture, I thought to myself, "what does it mean to be a bondservant of Christ" I mean it's clearly different from a mere regular servant because Paul the apostle emphasizes on being a bondservant in all his books. So I did some research and came with the understanding that the word, *bondservant* in the Greek is *Duolos* which in translation means: one who is subservient to, and entirely at the disposal of his master.
Another definition that came up is an individual who serves his master without the expectation of receiving any wages whatsoever. They serve wholeheartedly not because of what they can get out of it but because they want to serve. It is so important that us as believers become those bondservants of Christ. Serving Christ out of our hearts not because of what we can gain from Him but just because we love Him and we want to spread that love of Christ to others! Let us make it our goal to become bondservants today.
Prayer is key and so simple. Oftentimes, the devil will put in our minds that prayer is work and is hard but it is so simple. It is just strictly a conversation between you and God. He longs for that. It's just like talking to a friend or spouse, it is about building a relationship. No good relationship is built without communication, it is key! Tonight I encourage you to spend time talking to God, I promise you'll never be disappointed !
