Wait

WORTHY THOUGHT: To wait on Him….

Be encouraged by the Word of truth, God knows and has his eye on you.

“From heaven the LORD looks down

and sees all mankind;

from his dwelling place he watches

all who live on earth—

He Who forms the hearts of all,

who considers everything they do.

No king is saved by the size of his army;

no warrior escapes by his great strength.

A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;

despite all its great strength it cannot save.

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him,

on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,

To deliver them from death

and keep them alive in famine.

We wait in hope for the LORD;

He is our help and our shield.

In Him our hearts rejoice,

for we trust in his holy name.

May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD,

even as we put our hope in you.”

-Psalms 33:13-22

Holy Bible (NIV)

So while we wait, be encouraged that the all-knowing, all-powerful and all-seeing God see’s all His children that wait on Him.

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him.

True

WORTHY THOUGHT: True prosperity is found by knowing the true value of God’s Word.

“They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.”-Psalms 1:3 NLT

When God’s wisdom is applied into our lives, the fruit it bears in us will be true, good and help us prosper in trials.

As a living tree soaks up water in the the roots and bears good fruit, we are also to soak up God’s Word producing good fruits in our actions, and words of truth.

Jesus also spoke in Book of John 15:5 “yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in me and I in him shall produce a large crop of fruit.”

This is a true quality of a prosperous christian character.

Guard

Worthy Thought: Guard your heart!

Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it spring the issues of life.-Proverbs 4:23

We are human and we make mistakes. We must keep our affections safe and stick to the path and keep our eyes focused on Jesus.

He will lead you and direct you on the path to righteousness which will bring you satisfaction.

Dr, Bob Pitman said it best:

Our feet, eyes, ears, and mouths behave as they do out of the dictates of our hearts.

Guard your heart by going to right places, looking at the right things, listening to the right voices, and speaking the right words.”

Welcome

Worthy Thought: We should always be motivated by love and compassion.

“An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.

Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had the child stand beside him.

Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all he is the greatest.”

-Luke 9:46-48

Princess

WORTHY THOUGHT:A true princess knows who she is in Christ Jesus.

I am not referring to the Disney character princesses. Those can give a false sense of image “how much attention can I get” in a pretend dress-up Disney character or even the beautiful American Meagan Markle we all watched on live television holding our breaths anticipating and waiting to see the absolutely stunning bride walk down the aisle to marry her Prince Harry. Meagan Markle did look like a princess in the Royal Wedding.

This is the Bible standard of a true princess:

A princess gets wisdom from The Word and defends the truth, she is humble and serves rather than be served, loves good and hates evil and for this has earned the praise of many nations.

True Royalty is not characterized by robes worn or thrones occupied, but by a faithful obedience to the most royal of all, the King of Kings. We have been called to be a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and we honor that royalty by honoring our Lord the King who gave it to us.

I came upon the sweet little girl who had never seen or heard a violin. I was playing in a village in Central America, Guatemala. This little girl walked up to me very curious about my instrument. I kneeled down on my knees to get to her level and make eye contact with this innocent creature. While I played for her, Jesus spoke to my heart and said; “This little girl is my princess”.

Someone in my group took the photo shot of that moment and you can certainly see in the photo she certainly is His princess.

Every girl, it does not matter what culture background wealthy or poor, if you are a daughter of God, believe Christ Jesus the Son of God is your true Lord and Savior then you are by Bible standards, a true princess.

Jesus said in Gospel John 15:16 ” You didn’t choose me! I choose you! I appointed you to go and produce lovely fruit always, so that no matter what you ask for from the Father, using my name he will give it to you.”

If you exalt wisdom, she will exalt you. Hold her fast and she will lead you to great honor; she will place a BEAUTIFUL crown upon your head. –Proverbs 4:9

For we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus into good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” –Ephesians 2:10

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. –Philippians 4:3
