Be specific in your prayer life.

From Psalm 32:6:  “Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them.”

It doesn’t matter how talented or successful we are by earthly standards, because God’s goal for us is obedience, faithfulness, and Christlike character.

From 1 Corinthians 4:5:  “Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart.  Then each one will receive commendation from God.”

When you look at the Cross, what do you see?  You see God’s awesome faithfulness.

From 1 John 4:9-10:  “God’s love was revealed among us in this way:  God sent His only Son into the world so that we might live through Him.  In this is love, not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.”

Thomas a Kempis Quote

If you desire to profit, read with humility, simplicity, and faithfulness.

From Isaiah 50:4-5:  “The Lord God has given me the tongue of a teacher, that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word.  Morning by morning He wakens–wakens my ear to listen to those who are taught.  The Lord God has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, I did not turn backward.”
