Psalm 23:1
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

Topic :The Shepherd takes care of his sheep.

In these day of challenges ,there are times when you come across some very difficult situations and you do not seem to know how to handle it.There are times that you do not know where to turn and the decision process becomes a challenge.
Some would say,I never have that problem and another would say ,yes there are times it is so confusing to make a decision about some basic matters.
Today I am encouraging you to take a moment of your time and seek the master Shepherd before you act in any situation and watch how different things turn out for you. Pray and wait for an answer from God.Sometimes it seems that He takes too long to answer.Then it means you need to wait before going forward.If you decide to move forward on your own then it is on you. Life can be very complicated if we make it so .
There are some who are receivers and not givers.They always want to receive but they never give or rarely give.
Seek God for direction and wait .The good Shepherd will never steer you wrong.You will never want of any good thing if you only trust God.

Prayer for today :

Proverbs 24 v 3
Through wisdom a house is built.
And by understanding it is established.

Topic : Wisdom produces greatness.

In our pursuit in life oftentimes we move based on how we feel.We move based on our desires.We act based on how the thing or how the person looks.
Our action is usually based on appearance or feelings.
However does our feelings always direct us in the right direction.? Does the appearance of that thing or person steer us in the right direction?
Seek wisdom , A wise person does not always make a decision based on appearance and feelings but because of knowledge and experience they are able to come up with a good conclusion about events and situations ahead of time.Wisdom guide you in making good decisions.
Spontaneous actions often leads to long term regrets and catastrophic disaster. As the words says," through wisdom a house is built and by understanding it is established. "
Wise thoughts can make a difference in the interim and the long term process. SEEK WISDOM and
remove foolish thoughts and spontaneous actions.
Think before you act.Think before you answer. Make
sure , before you move in the direction you are about to move. Do not continue to live with regrets.
God is the best guide in your decision process. He can and will lead you if you consult Him first and wait. He will respond to you on time. He knows your deadline. He knows your urgent need. Put it before the king of kings, he will certainly give you the right answer. He will never let you down.
Trust God. Have a wonderful blessed day.

Proverbs 4 : 18
The path of the just is as a shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

Topic : What light are you following ?
In this world filled with chaos and confusion ,often times people are caught up in a dilemma and they do not know where to turn or what to believe. There is confusion and despair all around us .
The ideas of humans change daily.Peolpe do not know what to believe these days. Beliefs are presented in a contrary manner. Some ask themselves" ,Where do we go from here?"
The youth (the future) are so confused that they shock the nations with the acts that they perform. What is the problem ? Is it so much hate that is let loose on the society? Has people gone out of their minds in the decision that they are making ? What is the problem? Is is too Many free access to guns and ammunition ?What is the problem ?
Before someone acts His thoughts should be clear and free from every elements but there is so much access to drugs and controlled substances
that are ADDICTIVE that when individuals starts on it ,Their Light fades away and only darkness is in their path.They do not think clearly at all. There is so much substance abuse in the society that many people cannot see the true LIGHT.
A TRUE AND COMMITED RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ALMIGHTY GOD CAN BRING US ALL BACK INTO THE LIGHT.We need to seek him with all our heart and let him control our minds.
There are a lot of people who wants to control. They like to be in charge. However some are leading you in the wrong direction. They would never admit this but they are very influential. They will convince you but they are telling / teaching false information. Be careful of the influences around you. Every day there is a man made change and it is very convincing. It does not take much to twist the truth these days. People are so desperate they will want to believe anything which gives them hope or comfort. Bill a connection with the almighty God and He will certainly direct you to His truth. Have a wonderful blessed day.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, oh Lord my strength and my redeemer.
Psalm 19 v 14 (kjv)

Topic : The bright side of the spoken words .

The words that we speak can be so powerful . If we speak upliftment we shall be elevated. If we speak negative words against ourselves it surely will pull us downward. Do not put yourself down. Be positive in your expression as well as your actions. Do not give up on yourself. Keep your dreams and aspirations alive in your mind as you move towards it. There will always be struggles but continue to pull forward in a positive way. The hopes for the future will sometimes seem to grow hopeless amidst the struggles of life but let this motivate you to try harder to achieve your goals. Never have negative anticipation. Always look to the positive with great anticipation. You are never too old to learn or to be corrected. Life comes with power to strengthen you or to bring defeat in your life or your situation. You should strive to obtain power which strengthens you daily than to keep negative thoughts in your life and your situations.
It can get better. It will get better. God will give you strength to make it. He will see you through. Let the negative die. Focus on the positive and live in hope for the future.
May God give you strength to have a wonderful blessed day.
