Graduates from high school and college move into a newer, higher level of independence, making decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives. They need wisdom and guidance as they face the challenges that come with living in the world without becoming part of it. Life Principles for the Graduate provides nine biblical truths for living God’s way as opposed to the world’s way, creating greater opportunity to grow stronger in faith while learning to trust and fully believe His Word as truth.
Improve your personal relationship with God
Change negative thought patterns
Increase your level of effectiveness in prayer
Break free from the past and embrace the future
The life you have always dreamed of is the one God intends for you to embrace. His desire is for you to have success, triumph, and joy in every area as you walk hand in hand with Him.
You were born to make a difference. What do you plan to do with the gift of life that God has given you?
Like these men and women of old, every person today is created by their Maker with a distinct blueprint. The timeless principles that strengthened and enabled the men and women in the Bible to carry out God’s purpose can aid us in the realization and fulfillment of God’s destiny for our lives.
I discovered that God was telling me, in Matthew 6:33, to “seek first of all the Kingdom of God and all of His righteousness.” And when I went looking, I wasn’t able to find anybody who knew much of anything about what I was asking. So I set out to remedy that situation. And in doing so, I had to learn early on that I had to have a total dependency upon God to give me the answers I was seeking. I had to yield to the Holy Spirit who lives in me, because one can’t get spiritual answers from the physical. I had to learn to differentiate between the Holy Spirit and the devil talking to me. I had to learn to walk by faith, to step out and obey God. I had to learn that, as I read the Word of God, my trust in Him and my faith would grow and go beyond what I could ever ask or think.
The Key of Love is designed to be a study guide to get you from where you are to where God wants you to be. Have your Bible with you as you read, and take the time to look up and study the numerous references to scripture herein, as well as cross-references, which appear in parentheses following many of the Bible quotations.
If you experience a closer walk with God, you will come to know God and to understand just how much He loves and cares for you. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you as you study (John 16:13). Look up each scripture, read several verses before and after the noted verse, and study it, meditate on it, and let the Word of God be your final judge. God has sent the Holy Spirit into your life to guide you unto all truth (John 16:13, I Thessalonians 5:21). Take full advantage of all that God has provided for you to make your life everything that He has created it to be.
To understand God one must understand that there are Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven that unlock the mystery of how we can know God and achieve what he has planned for us!
God has the answers to all our problems and is always true to his word. But He never put a time frame on it. He is never in a hurry! There is nothing we can do to speed him up, nor help him out. We must wait! Pain and suffering teach us not only to wait on God but to trust his timing. Trusting His timing helps to solidify our faith and enhance our spiritual progression.
Just when things look hopeless, and the future looks uninviting, God will show up and show his powers. God is in full control. Waiting on God requires faith and a whole lot of patience. Don’t become weary in well doing for God has promised to reward those who wait on him.
From Tribulations to Restoration is an inspiring spiritual handbook that is designed to help believers face difficulties faithfully. The author, Debra Sanders Clark, encourages readers to trust God’s Word and provision to get through life’s most difficult moments. After reading this book, readers will be able to:
-evaluate their lives and their relationship with Christ
-understand God’s unconditional love, His faithfulness and His promises
-become empowered, to grow spiritually
During difficult times, we are encouraged to remain faithful and trust God. Because one day soon the waves will subside and suddenly we will find ourselves on the other side of the storm. Then we can shout, “thank you Lord, I made it over, I couldn’t made this journey without you.”
Proverbs 18:21 says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." Simply put, words are containers for power--positive or negative, creative or destructive. Therefore, it is imperative that you learn to think and speak on purpose, using the life-giving wisdom in God's Word. When you do, your life will never be the same!
If you struggle with being negative, critical, or judgmental of people and situations, don't be discouraged. God wants to help you renew your mind to think and speak as He would. It won't happen overnight--but each day you will make progress as you choose power thoughts to be more like Jesus.
It's time for you to experience and enjoy the life God created you to live, and Joyce wants to help you get there. You can do it with this devotional by learning how to think and speak power thoughts daily.
