Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth;
meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.---JOSUE 1:8 Many people keep asking these things:
Yes... The secret of life was already revealed to all of us as written in Josue 1:8
before, i never knew about this because i was totally blinded by the god of this world 1 Cor. 4:3-4--And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. But to those who abide in His Words remain standing firm, whatever storms in life encounter...
The Word of God ( The Holy Bible ) is the manual of our life...it's difficult to use something like a computer if we don't know how to operate it and not reading the manual of it... same as our life... it will be difficult for us to carry our cross in life if we don't know His words and God's promises...in which can be found only in the bible ... That's why we must read it day and night, meditate His words... for God can also speak to us thru His Words.. and God is the Word itself!Jn. 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. So what is the secret of life that remains secret to others?Joshua 1:8 (Amplified Bible) 1. This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night,
2. that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it.
3. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.
When we stop reading the bible, spiritual dryness comes...
then when here comes the trouble we can easily be defeated..
Today, as my kids watching Barney's show in TV.. which i saw a puppet show about the 3 little pigs who built their houses... I remember the Parable of the Two Builders( Mt. 7:24-27 )Amplified Bible So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them [obeying them] will be like a [a]sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock.
And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a stupid (foolish) man who built his house upon the sand.
And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell--and great and complete was the fall of it. Yes.. truly, Oh Lord, i said that moment that You are my great foundation and the center of my life... Without You, Your Words how could i stand firm... upon reading and meditating your Words, You give me strength to overcome everything.. No matter how many wolves will attack me I am very much secure for I choose to be in the best Foundation, inside this house (my heart and my soul)it's YOU that i put at the Center... So we must always read the bible,and meditate His Words..for God is giving us wisdom and knowledge, directing us to the right path.And giving us prosperity in all aspect of life.. preparing us to be a victorious Christian!!!
Don't go for looks, they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile.
There are moments in life
when you really miss someone
that you want to pick them up
from your dreams and hug them.
Hope you dream of that someone.
Dream what you want to dream,
go where you want to go,
be what you want to be,
because you have only one life
and one chance to do all the things
you want in life.
May you have...
Enough happiness to make you sweet
Enough trials to make you strong
Enough sorrow to keep you human
Enough hope to make you happy
And enough money to buy gifts.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens.
But we often took so long at the closed door,
that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.
The best kind of friend is the one
you could sit on a porch, swing with,
never saying a word and then walk away feeling
like that was the best conversation you've had.
It's true that we don't know
what we've got until we lose it,
but it's also true that we don't know what
we've been missing until it arrives.
Always put yourself in other's shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
it probably does hurt the person too.
A careless word may kindle a strife;
A cruel word may wreck a life
A timely word may level stress
A lovely word may heal and bless.
The beginning of love is to let those we love
be perfectly themselves and
not to twist them with our own image,
otherwise we love only the reflection
of ourselves we find in them.
The happiest people don't necessarily
have the best of everything,
they just make the most of everything
that comes along the way.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people
before meeting the right one so that
when we finally meet the right person,
we should know how to be grateful for that gift.
It takes a minute to have a crush on someone,
an hour to like someone and a day to love someone
- but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Happiness lies for those who cry,
those who hurt,
those who have searched
and those who have tried.
For only they can appreciate the importance
of people who have touched their lives.
Love is when you take away the feeling,
the passion, the romance
and find out you still care for that person.
A sad thing about life is that when you meet
someone who means a lot to you
only to find out in the end that it was never
bound to be and you just have to let go.
Love starts with a smile,
develops with a kiss
and ends with a tear.
Love comes to those who still hope
even though they've been disappointed,
to those who still believe
even though they've been betrayed,
need to love those who still love,
even though they've been hurt before.
It hurts to love someone,
and not to be loved in return
but what is most painful is to love someone
and never finds the courage
to let the person know how you feel.
The brightest future will always
be based on a forgotten past.
You can't go on well in life until you let go
of your past failures and heartaches.
Never say goodbye when you still want to try;
Never give up when you still feel you can take it;
Never say you don't love that person anymore
when you can't let go.
Giving someone all your love
is never an assurance that they'll love you back.
Don't expect love in return,
just wait for it to grow in their hearts
but if it doesn't,
be content it grew in yours.
There are things you love to hear
but you would never hear it from
the person whom you would like to hear it from,
but don't be deaf to hear it from the person
who says it with his heart.
When you were born, you were crying
and everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life to the fullest so that when you die,
you're smiling and everyone around you is crying.
FROM THE FULLNESS OF HIS GRACE WE HAVE ALL
RECEIVED ONE BLESSING AFTER ANOTHER.
( JOHN 1:16 *NIV )
Always remember to count our blessings each day, and to
thank God for them! For no matter what we have, when we
look around us, we find others who have less! So never feel
sorry for ourself, instead start counting our blessings, for that
should cheer u up indeed.
Now we know that when things disappoint us, we are sad and
often depressed. However it is written that we should: BE
JOYFUL ALWAYS; PRAY CONTINUALLY; GIVE THANKS IN
ALL CIRCUMSTANCES, FOR THIS IS GOD'S WILL FOR YOU
IN JESUS CHRIST. ( 1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-18 )
Therefore, never feel that God doesn't hear our prayers
because a prayer isn't answered the way we want, or something
goes wrong in our life. For our Heavenly Father always knows
what is best for us, and: HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU NOR
FORSAKE YOU. ( DEUTERONOMY 31:6 )
So my friend, remember to always: GIVE THANKS TO THE
LORD, CALL ON HIS NAME; MAKE KNOWN AMONG THE
NATIONS WHAT HE HAS DONE for you!
( 1 CHRONICLES 16:8 )
In closing, MAY THE GRACE OF THE LORD JESUS
CHRIST, AND THE LOVE OF GOD, AND THE
FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BE WITH YOU ALL,
now and always! Amen! ( 2 CORINTHIANS 13:14 )
