Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: February 17, 2020

We need God’s Word as much as we need food for physical body. Jesus once again referred back to this voice when the devil tried to tempt him on the mount, 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:3-4 Having the Word for breakfast is a great way to start your day! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every [word] that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.” Deuteronomy 8:3

Everything is Going to be Okay

I said a prayer for you today and this is your reminder that everything is going to be okay! “Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16 You are in God’s hands. He is bigger than anything you are facing and you are not facing it alone. He didn’t say we wouldn’t go through hard things while on earth, but He is our shelter, our safe haven through it. It’s also up to us as brothers and sisters in Christ to pray each other through whatever storm life brings. It doesn’t matter the problem, storm, or cause, we need to lift each other up and pray each other through it! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Jesus is the example we should live by. When the devil tempts Him on the Mount He used Word from today’s Scripture to fight him, “5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in [their] hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” Matthew 4:5-7 When you are under attack, use the Word as your weapon to fight fight back. Speak it boldly just as Jesus spoke it. Know the Word of God and keep it in your arsenal. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted [him] in Massah.” ~ Deuteronomy 6:16

Do Not Be Deceived

Wisdom and discernment. I pray daily for the Holy Spirit to bless me with wisdom and sharpen my gift of discernment. The devil knows us well and because of that he knows who to send our way and what deceptive words to use to entice us. When it comes to finances, love, anything of importance that tries to enter your life seek the Lord and see if it is from a Him. “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” Ephesians 5:6 The Lord seeks to bless His children. The devil doesn’t bless, but he will paint something as a blessing that will later cause harm. It may be a job that causes division in your family or a separation from Him. It could be a relationship you think you’ve been looking for, but is filled with manipulation just to get you into it. But God. He knows these things, so if you are seeking Him you avert those pitfalls without falling into them. The devil is constantly preying on God’s children. Don’t fall victim to his tactics, you are worth far more than that. You are THE King’s kid. Know your worth and hold out for the door God opens for you. You will know when it is from Him, He always confirms it! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

We live in a world that tries to pull you in a different directions. The devil can paint the things you can receive from following after him in a pretty little box and convince you his ways will get you some where faster. He tried that with our Savior too and Jesus referenced today’s Scripture , “8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.” Matthew 4:8-11 Don’t allow the ways of the world to convince you there is an easier or faster way to the top or just to get by. Trust in God, He will minister to your needs during those times just as He did to Jesus. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.” Deuteronomy 6:13

Love Covers a Multitude of Sins

The KJV Dictionary definition of charity is “In a general sense, love, benevolence, good will; that disposition of heart which inclines men to think favorably of their fellow men to think favorably of their fellow men, and to do them good. In a theological sense, it includes supreme love to God, and universal good will to men.” There is enough going on throughout the world and in each of our lives without us having strife between each other. 1 Peter 4:8 says, ““And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.” Jesus died to forgive us from the smallest to the greatest of sins. Should we not offer that forgiveness with one another? Charity, that’s love ya’ll, shall cover the multitude of sins.

Benevolence, another meaning of charity, is “the quality of being well meaning; kindness.” I think it all comes back to being Christ like. Less of me and more of Him. Admittedly I have a long ways to go, but I know I want to walk more after the spirit and less after the flesh. Help me Poppa to offer fervent charity even when I’m hurt. Cause me to draw it from You, my source at all times (especially those hard ones). Yes, less of me and more of You. I never want to forget love covers a multitude of sins, the love of Jesus covered mine through His blood. It covered yours too. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

I love how God looks out for the poor and downtrodden. He understands every single one of us! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“7 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: 8 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, [in that] which he wanteth.” Deuteronomy 15:7-8
