The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10

Great morning at the ballfield! Now to do some work on the house! So excited.
If we do what we are good at doing, we will sense God’s anointing (presence and power) on our efforts. We will know we are operating in our gifts and that doing so honors God and ministers life to others. God speaks to us through this anointing, giving us peace and joy to know we are fulfilling His plan for our lives.
God’s word for you today: Do what you’re good at - it’s God’s gift to you.
In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps. (Proverbs 16:9 NIV)
Don’t let negative pictures play on the movie screen of your mind. You own the remote control. All you have to do is change the channel.
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5
You’ll not likely go wrong here if you keep remembering that our Master said, ‘You’re far happier giving than getting.’”
Great family leaders possess an inner strength and faith that allows them to be patient and calm. Joseph was such a leader. On three separate occasions, he obeyed the instructions of the angel of the Lord even though his obedience came at a great personal and financial cost. In the face of frightening circumstances, Joseph’s actions do not seem to be driven by panic and fear. Instead, he conducted himself in a way that reflected his deep and convicting faith in God.
When we have faith in God, circumstances will no longer dictate our peace and contentment. We are able to be patient and wait on God’s timing instead of forcing our own agenda.
If you often find yourself overwhelmed and frightened as you lead your family, consider where you are putting your trust. Few of us will be challenged to obey in as dramatic a fashion as Joseph, but we can let his faithful example inspire us to lead our families in calmness and faith.
Let your faith give you the strength that allows you to lead with patience and calmness.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4
