GOD’S HEART MEDICATION FOR A BETTER LIFE
1. KNOW CHRIST (GOD'S PERFECT EXPRESSION OF LOVE John 3:16)
EVER HEARD KIDS BRAGGING ON THEIR DADS? CAN YOU BRAG ON WHAT JESUS HAS DONE FOR YOU?
"He loved me when I was unlovable, changed my life, gave me purpose, helped me when I prayed…"
2 . DON’T LIVE IN PAST Philippians 3:13
LIVE IN PRESENT/TRUST GOD FOR YOUR FUTURE (Pr.3:5-6/Mt.6:33-34)
Living in the past can be a pride issue or a lamentation. Either way, your future focus is compromised.
3 . BE FAITHFUL TO GOD WITH YOUR LIFE
SERVE GOD IN ANY WAY YOU CAN (Jer.29:11) AND JOIN A HOUSE OF WORSHIP
Give God time for reflection, inspiration and submission to His greatness.
4 . HAVE A GENEROUS HEART (Luke 6:38-39; Philippians 4:15-19)
BE GENEROUS WITH OTHERS IN FRIENDLNESS, ATTENTION AND CARE
Self-centered people usually have fewer friends.
5. BE HUMBLE BUT NOT FALSE HUMILITY
Philippians 2:3-4 ALLOW YOURSELF SELF TO BE SUBORDINATE TO GOD AND SUBMISSIVE WITH OTHERS.
6. SEE THE GOOD IN OTHERS WITH GOD’S LOVE LIKE HE DID WITH DAVID – AND YOU (1Corinthians 13:5)
NOBODY IS PERFECT SO TRY TO SEE SOMEONE'S GOOD POINTS. IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR HEART.
7. HAVE A GRATEFUL HEART
THE SWEETNESS OF GRATITUDE ATTRACTS OTHERS (LIKE HONEY INSTEAD OF VINEGAR)
THE UNGRATEFUL HEARTS IN ROMANS AND REVELATION WERE CHASTISED BY THE LORD
DO EVERYTHING WITHOUT COMPLAINING PHILIPPIANS 2:14
BE GRATEFUL IN ALL THINGS (ELEVATES YOUR SOUL AND SPIRIT) 1THESSALONIANS 5:13
It is timely to turn our hearts towards God, like David did, and express our gratitude for our relationship with Him, for our country BEING FOUNDED WITH HIM IN FULL VIEW - one nation under God - and for our freedoms that allow us to exercise our faith together with like-minded people.
2 Chron. 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
