Revelation 2:29

Revelation 2:29

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

After Thought

Each letter dictated by Jesus to the seven churches ends with these same words. It reminds us that wisdom and truth can only have benefits to those people who will take time to listen.

Matthew 6:25

Matthew 6:25

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

After Thought

It is easy with our fallen nature to worry about so many things because we sense our insufficiency. But God is sufficient, and He will meet our needs. As we do what we can He does what we cannot.

John 3:8

John 3:8

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.

After Thought

You can sense the wind and observe what the wind can do. In the same way we can sense the move of the Spirit and observe what He does.

Joel 2:22

Do not be afraid, you wild animals, for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches.

Ephesians 6:13

Ephesians 6:13

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

After Thought

God will empower you to stand your ground as evil increases. Stubbornness is a virtue when confronting wickedness.
