God knows you better than you know yourself. As a new Christian or seasoned Christian you will never be perfect. So, stop trying. When God enters your life, he does not want your personality, traits, etc to change. He wants your heart to change. When you seek Him, you will find that you will not want to say things or go places that you used to. However, you are wonderfully and fearfully made for use in the kingdom! He can use you where you are, even if you are in a jail cell. Review those servants from the Bible, Rahab, Moses, Paul, Noah, and many other imperfect people. As you continue this journey, trust God. He is doing a great work in you!!
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for creating me for your kingdom work. Mold me. Shape me. Use me. I want to be your servant. In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: For with God nothing shall be impossibe. Luke 1
IT DOES NOT MATTER what the other person did or did not do, it only matters how you as a believer respond. Nobody likes to be lied to. Nobody likes to be hurt. If you find yourself in that place today, go to God's word. Go into God's presence. God will give you the strength to press forward. His word and his grace is sufficient for you and everything you encounter on this journey. DO NOT operate outside of God's will by choosing to respond poorly, such as seeking revenge or holding unforgiveness in your heart. When you respond with a poor decision, it is now your burden to carry and you are held accountable for your actions. Is it easy? Yes, because God will see you through. There is nothing impossible for God!
So remember, IT DOES NOT MATTER what "they" did but IT MATTERS HOW YOU RESPOND.
Prayer: Lord let us be slow to speak and slow to react. Give us the strength to be quick to heed to your word, your throne, and your presence. We thank you for grace that is sufficient. We thank you in our weakness you are made strong. We give you glory! In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. James 1:19 KJV
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
