Sunshine Sunday: Psalms 25:5

Hey guys! I apologize for not posting anything in a few days, I hope to now post at least every other day if not more. For todays Sunshine Sunday post, I will be explaining a verse: Psalms 25:5 “Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”

This verse is written by David, and he wrote this to be a prayer for guidance and protection. In the first part of the verse he is asking God to lead him into the truth, and for God to teach him. In the middle of the verse David is saying that he believes in God, and he recognizes that God is who brings salvation. Finally in the last part of the verse, it reads, “on thee do I wait all the day.” David is saying that he waits on the Lord all the time. He waits for God to give him the answers to his problems, and goes to him for help.

This is what we can learn from this verse in Psalms. Sometimes God makes us wait on problems that we have, or answers that we may want. He may want us to stay in a valley that we are in, because there is something that we can learn from it. God doesn’t always bring us out of a situation right when we ask him. He also may not answer our prayers right when we pray them either.

But we always need to remember that God always knows best, and we shouldn’t questions any of his decisions. Even if sometimes we may have to stay in a valley for longer that we may like, remember that we can always learn somethings from mistakes or hard times.

Sunshine Sunday: Matthew 7:3-4

Hey guys! Todays Sunshine Sunday post will be about Matthew 7:3-4; “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brothers’s eye, but considerest not the beam in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine own eye; and behold, a beam is in thine own eye?”

This verse is saying that you need to look into your own life before you tell someone else what they are doing wrong.  When you are making the wrong choices in your life, how can you teach someone else to not do these same things? In the first part of this verse it says, “why beholdest thou the mote that is in they brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam in thine own eye?” Jesus is using the example of a “mote”, which is the smallest piece of sawdust there is. He is asking, why are you worried about the small problem in someone elses life, when you have a huge problem in your own life?

The second verse is asking, why would you tell the other person how to fix their small problum, when you still have a large problem in your own life? The illustration that Jesus is giving here shows us that we need to examine the problem in our own life before we go try to help another person with their problems. With Gods help, we need to fix our own problems before we can help someone else that has that same problem. By practicing this, it will equip us to be able to help the other person that is having the same problem that we used to have.

Sunshine Sunday: Deuteronomy 31:6

Hey guys! Todays verse is going to be Deuteronomy 31:6, “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee”.

This verse is written by Paul while he was preaching to the people in Israel. Paul is telling the people to be strong and courageous and to not fear because God will always be with them. Teens especially tend to worry about their future, like there first job, and going to college. But as we see here, as long as you pray and ask God for guidance, he will lead you in the right direction.

Me personally used to worry a lot about my future. But after praying and asking the Lord for guidance, I came to the realization that you have to trust in God to help you make the right decisions for your future. If God wants you to take this opportunity or go and do this, he will open doors for you to do those things.

The last part of this verse is saying that God always goes with you, and will never lead you the wrong way. Sometimes you may feel like there is no one to trust, but you can always trust in God to help you take the right paths.

This verse also talks about fear, and to not be afraid because God is always with you. With me going to school to be a firefighter, one of the things that I learned early on is that it is a dangerous job. You could go to work one day, and not come back the next, and you have to willing to except that this could happen. Because I am a Christian, I am not one bit afraid of dying, or risking my life to rescue someone else in danger. I have the assurance that if I die, I will go home to be with the Lord in a much better place than on earth. If you have also excepted Christ as your savior, you have no need to be afraid of death, nor earthly things.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have any questions for comments please leave them bellow or in the contact tab at the top of the page.

Sunshine Sunday: Isaiah 40:31 KJV

 

Hey guys! Every Sunday I will be writing a blog post called, Sunshine Sunday, and basically I am doing this to add some light to your week! In Sunshine Sunday, I will pick a bible verse that can inspire you to do the best that you can the rest of the week! Todays verse for Sunshine Sunday will be Isaiah 40:31(KJV)- “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

This verse means that we must always build up our faith in the lord and to never lose hope. But the times that we might lose hope and think that our circumstances could not get any worse, the Lord will renew our strength if we have excepted him as our savior. The phrase”Mount up”, translates into the Hebrew word” ˈalah”, which means “to go up, ascend, to go up over a boundary.” This is God telling us to keep pressing on and not give up because the Lord knows what is best for us in the long run. So stay courageous, and know that God will be with us through the worst of it, and to not give up.

As you might have noticed, this is the verse that I picked the title of this blog from. It is a very inspiring verse for me, and for teens going through things in general.
