Today’s post expands on Things to Know (Part 1) where I list 3 things for Christians to know, for success in this life. Here are a few other things to know:
4. God’s ability is in you. This ability enables you to fulfill the Great Commission of reaching those God is directing you to-your part in reaching the world. By having God in you you have His life, nature, and ability working on your behalf. That’s a strength, a meekness. Meekness can be defined as “controlled strength”. God’s your ability and strength. Meekness over weakness.
5. You can do whatever God tells you to do in His Word. Philippians 4:13 reads, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth (strengthens) me.” Not in your own strength, ability, or wisdom, but through Christ.
6. God will supply everything you need to be a success in this life. He supplies the tools you need to get the job done, then helps you do the “digging.” Where God guides He provides.
These things to know are simple, basic, foundational truths thoroughly established on God’s written Word. Together with my last post they’ll help you to succeed in this life.
How many of these 6 things to know are you already practicing? How many are new? Which one)s) would you like further explanation, simplification, or clarification?
