Cultivating Character over Charisma and Choosing Words Carefully  

Here are today’s devotionals:

Cultivating Character over Charisma 

1 Peter 3:3-4 (NIV)

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornments, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”

What would happen in your spiritual life if you spent as much time on your soul as you do grooming, exercising, or however else you maintain yourself? Let us be clear, those things are important, to an extent, but they will fade with time. Your spirit, however, will live forever. Your character is a road map to where you have been and where you are going. Let it point you to the throne of God for it will also serve as a guide to those who follow you.

Choose Carefully the Words you Speak 

Proverbs 18:21  (NIV)

“The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

Have you ever considered how your words affect those who follow you? Your words have the power to destroy their confidence or build them up to be stronger than they are. Those whom you lead look to you for guidance, Love, and emotional support to cope with living in today’s world. Choose your words carefully. The impression you make will greatly impact your followers. People need to know they are loved by some here on earth as well as their heavenly father. Give the gift of encouragement every day.

Click HERE for a list of 100 verses about the power of words.

Do you want some Texas Road House for dinner tomorrow? Maybe you want to play some carnival games and have a chance to win some door prizes and have a chance to give to a great cause??? Well, then Flannel Fest is the event you want to be at tomorrow evening! If you want more information or want to register, click HERE.

Praise Thursdays: A father’s lifestyle is contagious & Look out! Someone is watching.

A father’s lifestyle is contagious

 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.” – James 3: 17

When your lifestyle as a father (or leader), you lead in the love of God and his wisdom, the character you exhibit and the influence you have will impact those who are important to you in life. Wisdom leads to Harmony and peace, what human wisdom leads to arrogance and dissection.  Examine yourself, what kind of wisdom do you depend on? Remember, God wants your very best – so does everyone else you influence, know, and love.

Look out! Someone is watching.

“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.” Proverbs 15:3

The idea of someone watching seldom occurs to us as we go through life. So often, we say that we want and do exactly what we selfishly choose to do. We need to realize that nothing ever escaped the notice of God and nothing ever surprises him. Proverbs 16:3 says, ” Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.” When we commit our ways to the Lord, everything changes and pleasing God becomes our priority in life. Because God cares, he wants to bless us with his love and mercy. May your life reflect the love that God so generously gives to those who follow him.

The Great Physician and Patience and Wisdom go Hand and Hand.

The Great Physician and You

Matthew 21:21-22 – Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

Someone once said that if you fight all your battles on your knees you will win every time. Draw near to God, and you will find healing for your spirit and body. Listen, meditate and wait upon His direction and guidance. God wants the best for you, and the best is walking with him in all circumstances, trusting him in every situation and relationship. This allows your faith to grow and helps you become the person God wants you to be.

James 4: 7-8 says. “Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.” He wants you to make the first step, the great physician is waiting for you with open arms. Run to him with everything you need for today.

 

Patience and Wisdom go Hand and Hand

Proverbs 16:32 – “Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.”

Our actions and words determine who we are to the people in our lives. Proverbs 3:13-14 says: “Happy is the man who finds wisdom and who gains understanding. For the proceeds are better than pure gold.” There is great benefit for learning to be wise and patient with those who God has placed under your care. Those you lead need your wisdom, and they also need to experience your patient love whenever they fall on hard times. That is a leader’s main function, the bread, and the butter of their job – To guide or Lead others in an uplifting way.

Praise Thursday: A leaders prayer changes everything & The God connection for leaders

A leader’s prayer changes everything

James 5:16 (NIV) –  “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

It’s often been said that prayer is like the breath of life, you can’t exist spiritually without it. It also offers a potent connection with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. God has designed this world in such a way that many of our needs are met only through interdependence on fellow believers and our singular dependence on God. When a leader earnestly comes to God in prayer for wisdom and direction, he will be blessed and God will be glorified.

The God connection for leaders

John 15:7-8 (NIV) –  “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”

The only way you can play a significant role in the kingdom of God is if you allow Him to live through you, or abide in you. It clearly says in John 15:5 that without Him you can do nothing, with him you can do anything. You can live out a godly life as an example to those you lead. You can also lead those around you how to love the Lord and each other. Jesus calls you to produce much fruit. To do that, you need only pray often and be in the word.
