A major factor in always living in the Joy of the Lord is prioritizing praise and thanksgiving to God in our lives.
The purpose of believers is to praise God. Yet, we do a poor job of it. In fact, we are actually guilty of tempting and limiting God.
The actions of our life display what we believe. If our actions do not prove our purported belief, we must question what we truly believe.
Fears come from our dread of severe consequences. God does not desire for us to live in fear. He enables us to drive our fears away.
Have you ever felt unlovable? Are you guilty of doubting God’s love? Do you wonder how God could love you when you fail him repeatedly?
I do not want to live my life as an afterthought, filled with regret. I want to be a product of forethought and rightness.
