I was sitting here thinking about that old song, our God is an awesome God. And I started to ask myself if I could come up with a word for each letter that defined God to me. Here is what I came up with, share your AWESOME words.
Be blessed today by serving the Awesome God that loves and adores you !
Remember when we were in Elementary school and the teacher always chose a line leader? Many of us couldn’t wait to have the opportunity to lead the line. This brings me to a very important question.
Who is the line leader of your life?
Many times in life we choose to allow other things to lead our lives. As Christians, we are told not to idolize other things such as people or materialistic things. God should be the line leader of our lives. Let him lead you today!
Exodus 20:3New International Version (NIV)
3 “You shall have no other gods before[a] me.
Proverbs 19:20 New International Version (NIV)
20 Listen to advice and accept discipline,
and at the end you will be counted among the wise.
It seems like from a very young age, we as humans do not want to be disciplined. But discipline leads us to wisdom. God wants us to be wise, he wants us to be good decision makers and live out our life for his glory.
As we are growing, it is not always easy to “listen” to authority figures but try not to think of your position at this current time in your life. Instead think about your future. God has placed people in your life so that they can help you grow. Consider this, God loves you so much that he wants you to be equipped to handle the blessings he has in store for you. You need wisdom in order to be equipped. Combat the urges to be defiant. Examine each situation and ask, what can I learn from this moment of discipline that will lead me to the wisdom that God wants for me?
