1 Peter 3:10-12… “He who loves life and sees good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil. And his lips from deceit 11. let him turn away from evil and do good. Let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are open to their prayers, but the face of the Lord is against those that do evil.“
Don’t waste your days worrying. This day could be your last. Forget about the past and today’s worries and choose to live.
Psalms 118:24… “This is the day that the Lord has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it!”
We have free will. That means we can choose to be happy and live in joy. Set your thoughts on God rather than your problems or what might be in your past.
God is so good. He wants nothing but good things and blessings for us. He never changes and he wants us to count our blessings daily with our eyes on God until we reach heaven.
We have every reason to be positive. No matter what happens to us or around us, it does not matter if we are a child of God.
Romans 8:37-38… “ Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Love life because God is with you at all times. Choose joy and contentment.
Romans 15:13…”Now the God of hope fills you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
Remember, all of our choices have consequences. So choose the good things of God. Choose happiness and righteousness.
Philippians 4:8-9…” Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”
Choose the life of giving and not always taking.
Acts 20:35… “I have showed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
Jesus himself knew it was the best choice to happily give. He gave his life for us.
Galatians 1:4… “Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:”
Choose life by feeding your faith and seeking God first.
Romans 10:17…”So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.”
I John 1:7… “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
Don’t Grumble! A person that chooses to grumble is now being in the will of God. Am I choosing to live a joyous life, being a blessing to those around us or am I doubting God’s power by grumbling?
Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
Philippians 2:14-15…”That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;“
You can choose to live life in Joy and righteousness! You are a child of the King of Kings! And always remember…
I Thessalonians 5:18…”In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.“
