God is empty of anger toward you. Yes, God hates sin. In fact, the Psalmist says that God feels indignation and righteous judgment every day ( Psalm 7:11 ). But Romans 1:18 makes it clear. We make God happy when we put our hope and trust in Him. It's really easy to do things in our own strength and rely on our own wits. We might not even realize we do it. But David shows us how important it is to trust God; a woman after God's own heart puts her trust in the Lord. In you, LORD my God, I put my trust Maree, thank you for sharing. I know what you mean about stomping your feet and putting up a wall but your love and belief never wavering. I'm so happy you felt Him in that moment. I recently had a God moment the other night commenting on someone else's blog How to Know If Allah is Pleased with You? Among the signs that the Lord is pleased with His slave is that He guides him to do good deeds and avoid haraam things. This is confirmed by the words of Allaah: While as for those who accept guidance, He increases their guidance and bestow Maybe you find yourself in a circumstance that doesn't always make you have happy feelings. Remember, God is with you. If He is with you, then joy is with you too
God doesn't show his love for us by giving us health, wealth, and prosperity. He reveals his love to us by giving us more of himself.Read the transcript and. Only in relationship do you know the essence of someone's character. You know through connecting with them. The same is true with God. When we are in relationship with God His word becomes more than a book; it becomes alive
What do you say to someone that says, God spoke to me, or how do you know when it really is God speaking to you? God Speaks. I cannot count the number of times when someone has told me. One of the first things you can do is simply pray. You would be amazed how prayer can help you sort out the cobwebs of a searching soul. With all the noise and demands of life, just taking time out to be quiet and talk to God is a big step in the discernment process. Through my prayer I found I wanted to be alone with God Ignatius believed that God wants us to be happy and fulfilled and that the way to be happy and fulfilled is to be in tune with God's dream for the world and for us. In the terms of this book, the way to be happy and fulfilled is to accept God's offer of friendship and to live in accordance with that friendship In Romans 1:2 it says, Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. It says that only then, that is after the renewing of the mind and not being patterned after this world, that we can know his good, pleasing, and perfect will
God loves you and has an incredible future planned for you. In the Bible, God tells us: For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 Jesus, Himself, when speaking about the people who belong to Him, put it this way I believe in a God who loves you more than you could ever imagine.. The man looked at me sadly, obviously carrying a heavy load of spiritual pain. After a moment, he said, I wish I could believe in that God, like you.. This honest man's words give voice to a reality that many of us experience daily in silence You know what would make you happy and you pray for it with all your might, asking God to help you get it. But if it doesn't come to pass, you feel frustrated, disappointed , even bitter . Sometimes you do get what you want, only to discover that it doesn't make you happy after all, just disillusioned You know that God has something good in store for you. You don't believe he intends you to live a life of painful drudgery in which each day is a total drag. After all, the Bible is chock full of passages about joy. While this certainly doesn't mean that every single day is a parade and circus, it does mean that an overall sense of gladness.
You are stretched: If you are really comfortable in your position or responsibility, chances are, you need a change. If you can do your job with your eyes closed, change jobs. God wants you to grow and the only way to do that is to be challenged. If your duties require that you expand your abilities, congrats - you are right in your sweet spot The more you know of Christ and His sufferings (Isaiah 53), the more you'll know about Him, and the more you get to know Him, the more you'll love Him, so God wants something better for us, and that is a personal, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, which also gives you that same relationship with the Father, for whoever loves the Son.
Thank you Karl. These are thoughtful and gracious - the gift of 21 years of hindsight and maturing, as you duly note. A wise older mentor once told me, regarding the default, Keep doing the last thing you clearly heard God tell you, until you hear the next clear thing 5. You know how each other feels about pretty much everything. As Mic reported, knowing how happy your partner is and how he or she feels in certain situations is paramount. Healthy marriages. 6. Read your Bible and pray to God, asking Him to help you live His way. Believe the promises in the Bible. Trust what God says is true -- so that: He means what He says. Then, watch Him work in your inner-being and in your daily life as He fulfills His promises to you in response to your faith and obedience OK, I know—you can get road rage anywhere, anytime. But one of the number one symptoms of not being able to even with a place is getting disproportionately worked up on your drive God has made it plain that we exist to magnify that beauty. Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). And my final argument that your chief duty is to be satisfied in God is that, without this, you cannot glorify God from your heart
Philippians 4:13. I am confident that when you and I make loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, our heart's desire Jesus will give us His strength through the power of His Spirit to move closer to His all-encompassing love. He showers our lives with all we need — forgiveness, comfort, joy, peace, patience, kindness, hope. 8. You Catch Yourself Complaining All The Time. Happy people don't complain about their lives, so take it as a huge hint if you can't seem to stop. If you catch yourself complaining 24/7, it's a. The very words you'll read are the very words of God and you can confidently know that you are hearing from God as you read it. For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart You know you need to trust God and you do, (kind of!), but it's just plain hard. Or maybe you've been struggling for a while with an aging parent, the breakup of a relationship you thought might be the one, or you've been trying to conceive but you still haven't felt the warmth of a baby in your arms
You are fasting for God, and therefore you should be happy when you fast. Do not tell people that you are starving or how hungry you are, do not make yourself look sick, and do not randomly go to the ER because you feel that you are starving to death and have only been fasting for three hours What are the traits of that person that make you say, Yes, that's why they're the happiest person I know. So, that's the first question. Um the second thing is going back to Spurgeon's um Spurgeon's perspective uh on you know, talking about heaven or talking about hell. Do you feel like your happiness and joy are evident to the world
You're not connecting to God or other people there, and you're not motivated to participate in the mission. So you think about leaving, but then you feel guilty. After all, you love God In short, you continue to BECOME the person God needs you to be, the person your spouse will find inviting and safe as God continues to work on their heart. God's Intervention Stories abound about God intervening and restoring marriages even where neglect, abuse, addiction, or other serious problems have been present So, how do you know you have the Holy Spirit? God will give the Holy Spirit after repentance, baptism and the laying on of hands. Yet our part is not finished once we receive the Holy Spirit. We must yield to the Holy Spirit. It is up to us whether we will follow the lead of the Holy Spirit and stir it up on a daily basis Neicy, do not be too hard on yourself. You are still a babe in Christ. You are not expected to know everything that someone who has been in the word for 20 or 30 years would know. You would not expect a child of 6 to have the same maturity and knowledge as a 20 yr. oldso don't expect that of you
If you know you are genuinely a good person deep down inside, you should be happy about that, and relax. Write down all of your thoughts and feelings. Read them over perhaps another day when you're in a better mood, and try to figure them out. Understand why you are writing these things down. Think of general things, and specific things You can't know for sure if your ex is happy in their new relationship or if they're playing it up on IG to make a point, but if those pics of them and their new boo are bugging you, then here. 1. Let go of thinking life should always go your way. God answers every prayer, but he does not always answer yes.. Sometimes, he says no or wait.. Be happy when things go well, enjoy each day and look for the good in it, but let go of feeling entitled to a problem-free life. We have free will to choose to do good or bad, and. When you don't feel in your heart like thanking God with joy, remember that in your mind you know that the greatness of our God IS worthy of elated praise. Thank God for the truth about God and do it in a way that is consistent with what you know in your mind about Him. So even when your heart doesn't feel like thanking God, it is NOT being.

You should both listen and be heard. If the deity that you have made contact with is unwilling to listen to you, to work with you in the ways that you need, or to consider your best interests, then that is not a good relationship and you are fully within your rights to move on and find a different deity to work with C. Marrying an unbeliever is a grievous sin against the God who loves His people. Judah has profaned the sanctuary of the Lord which He loves (2:11). Remember the theme of Malachi, I have loved you, says the Lord (1:2). It is because of His love that God sets forth such strong standards of holiness for His people
Perhaps you've been told that as a Christian you must learn to trust in the Lord with all your heart. But this famous passage from Proverbs 3 contains more than just a general statement about living. Instead, you'll find the steps you need each day to truly walk with God If you don't know what to do, follow the directions of James 1:5. Here James writes, If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. When you don't know what God wants you to do with your life, the first step to figuring it out HAS to be praying for wisdom
By God's grace, the psalm doesn't get stuck there. And as it continues, God shows us how to turn from a resentful heart to a grateful one. Trust what God says, not what you see. But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task, until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I discerned their end. (Psalm 73:16-17 Take captive of the victim mentality and choose to know yourself as God knows you. Strong and courageous! Britnee is a free-spirited, Old Navy-wearin', coffee-shop lovin', wife and momma. She serves in the worship ministry with her husband at their home church in Glendale, AZ and writes with the sole purpose of pointing others to Christ It's a given, we want to control the irrepressible parts of our life, believing we will attain happiness then. I liken the thought to catching fireflies at night, certain you have caught them all
But God's voice is not the only sound clamoring for attention in our head, so how do you know if it is from God? According to Alan Kreider, a highly committed Christian youth may have logged 750. 14. Have a secret plan B. If you're where you need to be, the following thoughts don't cross your mind: Maybe he'll dump me, or If my ex moves back from Mongolia, everything could change.. 15.

Odds are you weigh more than you did 20 years ago. Most of us do. And not only has your waistline grown, but your ideal weight has increased, too God may not give you what you want when you are obedient. God may not give you what you deserve when you are disobedient. These truths should not frustrate us but humble us to the point of totally depending on our Father who knows best. Lord, you do the choosing, and I will be happy with your choices Know you are exactly where you are supposed to be. You are perfect and awesome. There is nothing to be afraid of, you cannot chose wrong. Get people that love you around you. Find your worth and know who you are and your purpose. Then, and only then, the preferable choice will be as clear as day. How have you decided to stay in or leave a. The words Birth is G-d saying you matter are not my own. They are taken from the Torah,which states the single most important truth you will ever hear: Yes, you matter, not because you think you are important, or because others tell you that you are, or because of your buying power, monetary value, looks, performance or productivity level And you do that by knowing what the Word promises about protection and believing and standing on it in faith. You will not have faith to believe for this protection if you don't know what God says about it, because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17). You must know His Word to have any basis for faith
6. Why should you care for your spiritual need, and what does Jehovah provide to help you? 6 Animals do not have a spiritual need, that is, they do not feel the need to know their Creator. But we do. (Matthew 4:4) When we listen to God, we gain insight, wisdom, and happiness.Jesus said: Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need Wow, you've been through so much. My heart just breaks for you. I do think it's really healthy to consider your boundaries, and whether you need a separation or not is up to you. You know the circumstances of this relationship, and you know the harm that's being done to you in it How do you know he's in Heaven? The conversation then went a little like this (paraphrased a bit as it's been six years): Me: Well, I guess I don't know. I have faith that he's home with Jesus now. Deacon: Don't assume. You don't know. And what if he's not there? You must pray for your dad every day and help him get to Heaven Lesson: Preparing for Marriage: Before You Say I Do. God created us male and female, and He created in us the desire to love and be loved, to form an intimate relationship with our soul mate. He blesses this union in marriage, and He teaches us in the Bible many things we can do to prepare for a successful and happy marriage Rosita is teaching Elmo and Abby a new song and dance called If You're Happy and You Know It!

Just accept my unconditional love God's Word has a lot to say about how you and I speak and act when that emotion begins to boil over. It's okay to be angry. It's not okay to be cruel when we're angry. So, I'm going to God in prayer 5 Verses to Pray When You Are Angry 1 Thessalonians 5:9.
