If We All Did This, We Could Change the World

Be a blessing to others.

On that day they will be told that they are either innocent or guilty because of the things they have said.

Matthew 12:37 (CEV)
My jaw was still numb as I approached the receptionist desk at the dentist. She handed me the card. “Here’s your next appointment date.”

“Thank you,” I said. Then I leaned toward her and whispered, “And stay as sweet as you are.”

She didn’t answer. But after a few seconds, she cleared her throat, “That’s the nicest thing anyone has said to me lately.” Her voice quivered.
I gave her a huge smile. But on the way home, her response rode in the car with me. What prompted me to say that to her? How often had I encountered folks who might also need a kind word, an encouraging comment or a genuine smile?

But the busyness of life, the tugging of the next chore, the issues at hand, usually erase any desire to encourage those we meet, those we know and…those we love.

We all hear words of discouragement on the news, at work, in the street, on the radio, on TV, on social media. But we have the power to change that.

We can make a difference choosing to encourage others. To share kind words, to impart positive comments and give a verbal hug.

Here are three truths about the power of our words:

“Worry is a heavy burden, but a kind word always brings cheer..” (Proverbs 12:25)
“Kind words are like honey– they cheer you up and make you feel strong.” (Proverbs 16:24)
“The right word at the right time is like precious gold set in silver.” (Proverbs 25:11)
Our words can lift the soul, bring a smile and touch the heart.

Pray this week:

Father, help me to be a blessing to others as I go throughout my day. Help me to be purposeful in my interactions with everyone I encounter, to impart Your love and blessing to them. Amen.

3 Questions for Finding the Perfect Spouse

A husband and wife are made to share each others’ lives intimately — in ways that no one else should. But how do you find one?

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?.” 2 Corinthians 6:14

God made us to desire human companionship in the form of a husband or wife. A husband and wife are made to share each others’ lives intimately — in ways that no-one else should. In a godly relationship, spouses can improve each other, look out for one another, and build each other up in the Lord.

You might think that God has a perfect spouse planned for you. However, as disappointing as it is, no-one can ever be a perfect spouse; “no one is righteous” (Romans 3:10) or perfect. Only Jesus “committed no sin” (1 Peter 2:22).

So what can you look for in a spouse?

1. Is He or She a Follower of Jesus?
The most important thing to desire in a spouse — and in yourself — is a close relationship with, and submission to, the Lord. Although no one can be perfect like Jesus, we should still try find someone who is Christlike — and we should try to be Christlike ourselves.

2. What Is Your Goal for the Relationship?
What do you want in a marriage: Do you want him or her to make you “happy”? Do you want him or her to meet your needs? Do you just want to physically be with someone?

The role of a spouse is not to “complete” the other or to constantly fulfill the other’s desire to be “happy”. No human can complete another — only God can fulfill our lives. The goal of a marriage — indeed, the goal of your life — should be “for the glory of God” ( Corinthians 10:31).

3. How Is God Leading You?
How do you pray for your future spouse? Do you pray for God’s leading in selecting him or her? God can guide you in everything — and that includes the important question of marriage and to whom.

There is no one way to know if God has led someone to an ideal potential spouse. But when you are walking a Christ-following life and seeking counsel from fellow Christians, you can often tell if furthering your relationship into marriage will help you both continue to lead godly lives.

Pray this week:

If God plans for you to marry, He will protect and guide your future spouse.

Do these principles help you understand what God wants for you? Are you currently in a dating relationship that doesn't meet these requirements? What if you're married and your spouse doesn't meet these principles? Pray! And God will bring you what you need. Ask for prayer over how you should be handling your current relationship.

Apply The Word For Changes

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). 
As a Christian, it’s important that you keep
making progress, and using the Word of
God to improve the quality of your personality. You
ought to be able to testify of definite changes in your
personality in recent times, through the application of
the Word of God. There should be something positive
and definite that you’ve built into your character or
something negative that you got rid of from your
character, by using the Word of God. Subject yourself
to the Word for it to effect changes in your spirit and
in your soul.
The change in your physical body is easy; the
focus now is the change from within. You have a
responsibility in building and upgrading your life with
the Word of God; no one can do this for you. There’re
people who haven’t changed in ten years. The same
things that offended them years ago, are still offending
them now. The same people they disliked years ago
are still disliked today. The same issues they’ve had in
five years are still there. They’ve neither changed nor
grown; that’s sad.
The question to ask is, have such people acquired
more information? Of course, they might have; but they haven’t acted on the information. They’ve heard and
studied the Scriptures but haven’t yielded themselves
to the transforming power of the Word of God to
bring about lasting changes in their personality. It’s not
enough to hear or gather scriptural information; you
must act on the Word.
There’re those who, when they’re in church, write
down everything that’s being preached and taught.
They get the tapes and they listen, but they’re so used
to the voice that it doesn’t mean anything to them nor
effect a change in their character. They’ve become too
familiar with the Word. Don’t be that way. Believe in
the power and ability of the Word of God to transform
your life from glory to glory. Apply the Word for
changes. I’m not talking about a temporary change,
but permanent changes to affect your personality.
God’s Word was given to you as a creative
material. Any change you want in your life is possible;
use the Word to make it happen. You can create more
victories and sustain yourself in the transcendent life
with the Word. 
Confession
The Word of God is my life and
my sustenance; I’m making
progress and winning every day
by the Word. Today, my life is
improved and upgraded as the
Word of God impacts my spirit,
bringing about a transformation
from glory to glory, in Jesus’
Name. Amen.
