Week Five Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5,7 You may be the smartest person that you know. You may have an alphabet soup of degrees behind your name, but you need not trust on your understanding. Because as smart as you think you are, I promised you that our God in heaven is smarter. Praise God that you have him to rely on for his infinite wisdom. Pray that you rely on God’s wisdom and not your own.

Week Six Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22 There are people who don't miss a Sunday at church. They are in the pews listening to the word that Pastor Joel preaches. They read their Bible and listen to scriptures on their smart phones. But when it comes to actually doing the things that the word says, they often miss the mark. Don't just listen. Don't just read. Act, Live, Do what the word says. Pray that you take God’s work and make it real in your daily life.

Week Seven No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money. Luke 16:13 Don't be deceived into believing that you can worship your Michael Kors, your Lexus, your college degrees, or even your spouse and also worship the Lord. You cannot. You cannot serve two masters. Make the Lord the only master in your life. Put Him alone on the throne. Pray that you dethrone anything that has taken the Lord’s place.

Week Eight But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 Do you exhibit the fruits of the spirit? Love Joy, Peace, Patients, Kindness goodness faithfulness gentleness and self-control are the character traits that should be exuding from your life if you are in the Lord. Pray you have the fruits of the spirit to bring honor to Christ in your life and to draw non-believers to Him.

Week Thirteen For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23 On occasion we church folk can forget that everyone has sinned and fall short of the glory of God. When we see people behaving in ways that we know dishonor God and that we also disapprove of, we should say “There but for the grace of God go I.” Praise God this week that He has kept you from the pitfalls that those around you face.

Week Fifteen Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me.” John 14:6 Some people may find it arrogant when Christians say that Christ is the only way to be saved. There is no arrogance, only confidence in trusting the word of God. This is God’s truth and we should share it with those we love. We should encourage all of our family and friends to know that there is but one way to heaven and that is through Jesus Christ

Week Eighteen For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Romans 8:38-39 This world is full of people places and things that have one goal and that is to tear us away from God. Our work, our material things and sometimes even our family works to pull us away from God. But we should praise God this week and every week that that there is nothing on earth that will ever be abel to separate us from God's love.
