HOW DO YOU LIVE!
“Stop judging so that you will not be judged.
Otherwise, you will be judged by the same standard you use to judge others. The standards you use for others will be applied to you.
So why do you see the piece of sawdust in another believer’s eye and not notice the wooden beam in your own eye?
Don’t give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls to pigs. Otherwise, they will trample them and then tear you to pieces. [Matthew 7:1, 2, 3, 6]
“Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you.
Everyone who asks will receive. The one who searches will find, and for the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Even though you’re evil, you know how to give good gifts to your children. So how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him? [Matthew 7:7, 8, 11]

Mat 6:25 “So I tell you TO STOP WORRYING about what you will eat, drink, or wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothes.
Mat 6:26 “LOOK AT THE BIRDS. THEY DON’T PLANT, HARVEST, OR GATHER THE HARVEST INTO BARNS. Yet, your heavenly Father feeds them. AREN’T YOU WORTH MORE THAN THEY?
Mat 6:27 “CAN ANY OF YOU ADD A SINGLE HOUR TO YOUR LIFE BY WORRYING?
Mat 6:28 “AND WHY WORRY ABOUT CLOTHES? NOTICE HOW THE FLOWERS GROW IN THE FIELD. THEY NEVER WORK OR SPIN YARN FOR CLOTHES.
Mat 6:29 BUT I SAY THAT NOT EVEN SOLOMON IN ALL HIS MAJESTY WAS DRESSED LIKE ONE OF THESE FLOWERS.
Mat 6:30 THAT’S THE WAY GOD CLOTHES THE GRASS IN THE FIELD. Today it’s alive, and tomorrow it’s thrown into an incinerator. SO HOW MUCH MORE WILL HE CLOTHE YOU PEOPLE WHO HAVE SO LITTLE FAITH?
Mat 6:31 “DON’T EVER WORRY and say, ‘What are we going to eat?’ or ‘What are we going to drink?’ or ‘What are we going to wear?’
Mat 6:32 EVERYONE IS CONCERNED ABOUT THESE THINGS, AND YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER CERTAINLY KNOWS YOU NEED ALL OF THEM.
Mat 6:33BUT FIRST, BE CONCERNED ABOUT HIS KINGDOM AND WHAT HAS HIS APPROVAL.Then all these things will be provided for you.
Mat 6:34 “SO DON’T EVER WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW. AFTER ALL, TOMORROW WILL WORRY ABOUT ITSELF. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
“…. and, HE CURED THEM ALL”
From then on, Jesus began to tell people, “TURN TO GOD AND CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK AND ACT, BECAUSE THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NEAR!”
Jesus went all over Galilee. He taught in the synagogues and spread the Good News of the Kingdom. HE ALSO CURED EVERY DISEASE AND SICKNESS AMONG THE PEOPLE.
The news about Jesus spread throughout Syria. PEOPLE BROUGHT HIM EVERYONE WHO WAS SICK, THOSE WHO SUFFERED FROM ANY KIND OF DISEASE OR PAIN. THEY ALSO BROUGHT EPILEPTICS, THOSE WHO WERE PARALYZED, AND PEOPLE POSSESSED BY DEMONS, AND HE CURED THEM ALL.
Large crowds followed Him. They came from Galilee, the Ten Cities, Jerusalem, Judea, and from across the Jordan River. (Matt. 4:17, 4:23-25 – GW)
Matt. 4:17… FROM THEN ON, Jesus BEGAN to tell people, “TURN TO GOD AND CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK AND ACT, BECAUSE THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NEAR!”
PROVERBS 4:20-27 GW
“ I HOPE YOU GET SOMETHING THAT WILL HELP YOU MAKE IT THROUGH 2021 AND BEYOND. IF YOU CAN DO THIS, BY FOLLOWING OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, JESUS AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THEN YOU CAN DO IT!” AS YOU PASS IT ON… TELL OTHERS!
MY SON, PAY ATTENTION TO MY WORDS. OPEN YOUR EARS TO WHAT I SAY.
Do not lose sight of these things. Keep them deep within your heart because they ARE LIFE TO THOSE WHO FIND THEM AND THEY HEAL THE WHOLE BODY.
Guard your heart more than anything else, because the SOURCE OF YOUR LIFE FLOWS FROM IT.
Remove DISHONESTY from your mouth. PUT DECEPTIVE SPEECH FAR AWAY FROM YOUR LIPS.
LET YOUR EYES LOOK STRAIGHT AHEAD and your sight be focused in front of you.
Carefully walk a straight path, AND ALL YOUR WAYS WILL BE SECURE.
Do not lean to the right or to the left. WALK AWAY FROM EVIL.
(Apostle Paul is talking)
Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time He (Jesus) said,
“MY GRACE IS ALL YOU NEED.
MY POWER WORKS BEST IN WEAKNESS.”
“So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. FOR WHEN I AM WEAK, THEN I AM STRONG.” (2Co 12:8-10 NLT)
“WHAT!?! How can that be? That means, Jesus Christ wants me WEAK ‘BEFORE’ He can make me STRONG, it just doesn’t make sense.”
Slow down cowboy! We have a great little thing called the Bible. If we can slow down and read the ‘message’ again, we will find our answer.
“So now I AM GLAD TO BOAST about MY WEAKNESSES, so that the power of Christ can work THROUGH ME. That’s why I TAKE PLEASURE in MY WEAKNESSES, and in the INSULTS, HARDSHIPS, PERSECUTIONS, and TROUBLES that I SUFFER for Christ.”
‘FOR WHEN I AM WEAK, THEN I AM STRONG.’
