This may come as somewhat of a stun to you. No one but you can engage yourself.

The self-awareness world may have tricked you into overlooking that. I know since I hang out in that world as well. Not multi day passes by that somebody isn’t sharing how they will engage you. Engage you to make intense move. On one more day it’s tied in with engaging you to carry on with the existence you were intended to live. Or on the other hand maybe to engage you to settle on better decisions.

By one way or another, that specialist figure has the devices or data that will engage you to roll out important improvement in your life.

But they can’t. Since no one but you can engage yourself.

On the off chance that you’ve never considered it, this thought may feel somewhat startling. So as to enable yourself, you initially need to quit looking outside of yourself for that control. You need to relinquish the possibility that some master is going to improve things for you. You need to guarantee your own power. Eek!

Engage: A Definition

The lexicon meaning of enable is: “give (somebody) the specialist or capacity to accomplish something.”

If I’m not mistaken, as a grown-up (thus long as I am not infringing upon any laws) the main individual who I have to request the expert to accomplish something is me. I have the ability to carry on with my life the manner in which I pick.

An auxiliary definition is: “to make (somebody) more grounded and increasingly sure, particularly in controlling their life and asserting their rights.” This is the definition individuals frequently allude to when they state they are enabling somebody in their lives. It’s the definition I can’t help contradicting.

What I accept is all the more obvious is that as somebody who is working in self-awareness, I can make the conditions where you can make yourself more grounded and progressively certain, particularly in controlling your life and guaranteeing your rights.

I can offer you data. Through coaching I can share my experience and offer guidance. As a mentor, I can recommend instruments and procedures that you may wish to incorporate with your life.

Equipped with that data, experience, guidance, devices and procedures, you at that point get the chance to engage yourself. You get the chance to guarantee your position over your life. By rehearsing what you have realized, you can reinforce your mindfulness and certainty. You can engage yourself.

How Might You Empower Yourself?

Engaging yourself is a long lasting adventure. Consistently you should effectively be the specialist of your own life.

For now, I need to offer you a little practice to begin. This little practice to engage yourself is to build up a familiarity with when you are settling on cognizant decision in your life. The other piece of this mindfulness is perceiving when you are not intentionally settling on decision.

I don’t get that’s meaning?

When somebody asks whether you need soup or a sandwich for lunch, intentionally settle on the decision of what you need and not saying ‘goodness, whatever, you choose.’ If you wind up with 20 save minutes, deliberately pick how to manage that time and not simply continuing with the un-completion of do list in your mind. Settle on decisions to do what you need, not just exactly what you should.

As you build up this mindfulness, you will probably end up settling on increasingly cognizant decisions. When you settle on cognizant decision, you are enabling yourself. You are giving yourself expert over your life.

The evangelist Billy Sunday told a story about a Christian who got a job in a lumber camp where the workers had a reputation for being ungodly. A friend, hearing that the man had been hired, said to him, “If those lumberjacks ever find out you’re a Christian, you’re going to be in for a hard time!” After a year, the man decided to return home for a visit. While in town, he met the friend who had predicted that he would receive ridicule and persecution from the workers in the lumber camp. “Well,” asked the friend, “did they give you a hard time because you’re a Christian?” “Oh, no, not at all,” the man replied. “They didn’t give me a bit of trouble—they never even found out!”

There is such a thing as an undercover Christian. Jesus himself said, “If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8.38). In other words, it’s shameful to be a secret Christian. Shameful, but apparently, not impossible. The most famous incognito disciple was Joseph of Arimathea. All four Gospels tell us about Joseph. Matthew tells us he was rich, that he wrapped Jesus’ body in a long sheet of linen, and that the tomb was Joseph’s own.

Mark emphasizes that Joseph was an honored member of the Jewish High Council (the Sanhedrin), and that he was waiting for the kingdom of God. He says that Joseph took courage in approaching Pilate. Luke calls Joseph a good and righteous member of the Sanhedrin, who had not agreed with the decision and action of the council to condemn Jesus. John comes right out and calls him a fearful “secret disciple.” What was Joseph afraid of? The opinions of his peers. Their judgment, perhaps.

He was afraid he could lose status, his social position. Having seen the unjust rush to execute Jesus, Joseph had real reason to fear physical danger. Nevertheless, he was on the council itself—he was in the position to make an actual difference, if anyone could. Had Joseph taken a public stand for Jesus, would it have changed the outcome? Probably not. But at least he would have taken a stand.

He finally reached the point where he would rather face the public danger of coming out for Jesus than to face the private shame of doing nothing. So he steps forward. Coming forward when he does and asking for the body took courage, because in doing so, he was declaring his love for Jesus. The word used in the Gospels indicates that Joseph had to beg for Pilate’s permission. A condemned man had no right to burial—that was part of the shame of crucifixion. It’s shocking that Pilate even allowed it.

After the introduction of my subsequent youngster, I had to get genuine one day when I began to check out my very own long haul objectives as a parent. At the time, both my significant other and I worked all day and our children were both in full-time childcare. Also, it was working for us. Be that as it may, when I looked forward three years and envisioned my child in grade school, I knew my child rearing objectives were extraordinary. I imagined being engaged with my child and little girl’s future schoolwork, carpools, and exercises. I needed to be completely submerged in the insanity of carpooling children to and from their playdates and goings-on, and I realized that implied, for myself, that I couldn’t be in the workplace as much as I had been up to that point. While regardless I had quite a while until my most established kid went to kindergarten, I started a child rearing rendition of Goal Setting to the Now and worked in reverse to figure out what I would need to do to make this long haul objective a reality.

The main thing I did was plunk down with my supervisor to examine my long haul objective. Since it wasn’t a change that needed to occur in seven days, my manager was available to it. Together, we started imagining what the change to my job at work would look like if I somehow happened to be in the workplace for less hours every day. At home, my significant other and I started to examine how this objective would likewise affect our family, since let’s be honest, less hours working meant a littler compensation. Fortunately, the years we needed to get ready for the change gave us an opportunity to roll out certain improvements to our family spending plan.

My long haul child rearing objective was three years really taking shape. In any case, because of diminishing my hours at work, I had the option to get my child at school on that first day of kindergarten and take him to get some celebratory after school frozen yogurt together with another companion he had met. It’s a memory I will have for eternity.

Furthermore, on the grounds that I had set aside the effort to get ready for the change, I had the option to deal with the desires for my associates and friends so my shorter work days didn’t contrarily affect them. Nobody resented me going on that extraordinary frozen yogurt trip since I had just kept my expert commitments. It was then that I understood I could accomplish a child rearing objective and still be fruitful in the workplace, while guaranteeing I had no childcare astonishments to contrarily affect my primary concern.

Arranging worked for my family and it can work for yours.

Preparing for Family Needs

In The ONE Thing, we talk about the significance of time hindering our arranging time. It’s the point at which we think about where we are and where we need to be. Toward the finish of every week, it’s essential to set time aside to evaluate in case we’re on track to meet our own and expert objectives. At the point when we give ourselves an opportunity to reflect this way, we can all the more likely decide the changes that should be made in our lives to achieve our objectives.

The idea of time obstructing our arranging time can simply be applied to child rearing. All things considered, it’s work we hold for quite a while, so we should make time to take care of business. As Medium essayist Jessi Craige Shikman reflects, “Child rearing is a 18-year gig that influences men, ladies, receptive and natural guardians, guardians with infants and youngsters – all in various manners.” No issue where we may fall on the child rearing range, we should set aside time to see what we’re accomplishing as guardians, including where we might be succeeding and to be perfectly honest, where we may miss the mark.

During this arranging time, you’ll take a gander at your family life in two unique manners: long haul and present moment.

Long haul Goals

Children experience unmistakable stages that require explicit needs. Alongside the progressions that age brings comes a change in the sort of time and care we have to give. It might appear to be an unfathomable length of time from now, yet that infant will be in school before you know it. Brief you’re attempting to discover somebody to meet your child at the bus station and the following, they’re – wheeze – crushing a line of orange cones at the DMV. (We’re discussing you, Sharlene.) And your timetable will change completely once your kid is progressively free.

Stretch out beyond things and start anticipating these minutes now. Without a doubt, life could change en route. In any case, when you have a guide to direct you, it’s simpler to explore than when you’re flying visually impaired.

As I did with my very own kids, take stock during this season of the job you imagine you’ll play a long time from now in your family’s life. We comprehend that watching out into the child rearing separation may appear to be troublesome when we’re knee-somewhere down in the present period of our kid’s life. Be that as it may, have confidence, much the same as you’ve worked in reverse from that sometime proficient objective to figure out what should be done right now in time, the equivalent ought to be accomplished for your job as a parent.

When our long haul plans are set up, we at that point utilize our arranging time to focus in on the week ahead to figure out what our commitments and desires might be.

Momentary objectives

During your arranging time, we additionally recommend apportioning time for preparing. At the point when we take a gander at our expert objectives, we ask ourselves what must occur in the coming week to be on focus to achieve our month to month objectives. A little while are busier than others, in both work and play. Your kids’ lives are the same.

A large number of us feel that we don’t invest enough energy with our children. Indeed, as per Pew Research Center, around 40 percent of all day working moms and 50 percent of all day working dads feel that they invest too little energy with their youngsters. While we aren’t ready to add hours to the day, we can assist you with taking advantage of the hours you do have in the coming week.

During your time square, try to organize family time too. This requires taking a gander at the family schedule to perceive what the desires are for the week.

Are there any medical checkups, wearing exercises, or school occasions to visit? Assuming this is the case, in what manner will you handle participation? On the off chance that you intend to be there, make an arrangement on your schedule to be there.

At the point when our time is shut out ahead of time, others are bound to regard that you have something to do during that time. On the off chance that another person is going to for your benefit, guarantee they have represented it on their calendar, also. Imparting these desires mitigates issues and keeps sudden favors, sitter bills, or childcare costs from springing up. With regards to family commitments, achievement can require association and, to be completely forthright, a town. We have to depend on others to assist us with meeting these significant responsibilities also.

Get a Support System

A few organizations, as Evernote, perceive the significance of guardians going to these kid driven arrangements. To facilitate the weight of parenthood, they’ve made a culture where it’s alright for their representatives to deal with family obligations as long as they complete their work.

One Evernote worker, Katie So’oto, clarifies the significance of keeping sorted out and seeking others for help in making achievement in her very own child rearing:

“We have astonishing pioneers here that truly assist us with organizing our children and our families. Regardless of whether it’s seeing the night time closed off on the schedule for their children or the individuals who are overly defensive of their morning drop-offs, its rousing and a decent update for me to concentrate on what’s significant… .One pioneer level out said to me ‘I have to set aside this effort for my children since they will recall this minute, while the individuals in that gathering I’m missing won’t.”

Being around for your children when it is important most requires purchase in from the individuals around you at work. At the point when the time has come to work, buckle down. Fulfill your time constraints, grasp difficulties in the working environment and show your work environment that what you’re doing is helping the organization to succeed.

What’s more, the equivalent should be possible with regards to your family. Tell them about your needs outside of work. At the point when it’s an ideal opportunity to get your girl to her compulsory dress-practice, ensure your chief and friends think about it ahead of time. By enlightening them concerning your outside duties, they can assist you with getting out the entryway so you can root for your little ballet performer.

Work matters, however so does your own life. In the event that the individuals around you know where your needs lay at various occasions, they will be all the more ready to help you achieve your family objectives since they perceive that you are so committed to helping everybody achieve their expert objectives also. Also, grasping this help will assist keep with amazing childcare costs under control.

I solidly trust that when you practice appreciation you improve your life.

When you invest energy consistently seeing what you are appreciative for, you start to build up a propensity for searching for something to be thankful for the duration of the day. While it’s conceivable (maybe even likely) that progressively extraordinary things will begin occurring in your life, is truly happening that you are just seeing the incredible things that have happened from the beginning.

As you see increasingly more to be thankful for, how you experience your life improves.

The most effective method to Practice Gratitude

Rehearsing appreciation is straightforward. You should simply make some time each day to see what you are thankful for. This is a training you can make all your own. You may keep an appreciation diary. Another probability is to invest energy contemplating what you are appreciative for as you nod off each night. You may make it a family undertaking and offer what you are thankful for around the supper table each night.

Anyway you practice appreciation, the key is to do it normally. Work in time for your appreciation practice each day. Past making it an every day practice, how you practice appreciation ought to be something that is special to you and your life. Something that feels better.

After some time, you will probably see that your familiarity with what you can be thankful for develops. You end up saying thank you to the intersection watch for their dedication.

My Gratitude Practice

I’ve rehearsed appreciation for quite a while now. I am increasingly persistent about it at certain occasions throughout my life and let it fall away at others. I certainly see a move in the manner I experience the world when I make tracks in an opposite direction from it for a really long time!

When I practice appreciation, it’s a family issue. My little girl and I, as a component of her sleep time schedule, read a book dependent on the Indigenous Thanksgiving Prayer. At that point we each put shortly unobtrusively (and once in a while with snickers) working out 10 things we are thankful for now. After we complete the process of composing, we alternate perusing our thanks unmistakably to one another.

This activity of petition, calm reflection and voicing appreciation is an amazing blend for me. It’s a training I trust I am ingraining for a lifetime as well.

Your Gratitude Practice

Do you as of now have an appreciation practice? Provided that this is true, I’d love for you to impart it to me in a remark underneath. It is continually moving to perceive what others are doing. In the event that you don’t yet and you’d like to begin, consider these inquiries to start shaping your training:

Will I set aside a few minutes for this in the first part of the day, during the evening, or both?

Do I want to talk my appreciations? Record them? Draw them?

Is this something I need to do without anyone else? Will I include others?

How would I make this basic and charming?

I trust that one of the greatest impediments to a man living her qualities is the simplicity at which we stall out on some random day. What’s more, it’s seldom the huge occasions that keep us down however the littler, persevering musings, mentalities, and fears that appear constantly.

When I experience a major issue, for example, an occupation change or a passing in the family, I’m on high alarm for whatever restricts God’s integrity in my life. I’m most likely asking more than at different occasions. I’m additionally more inclined to care more for myself, since I perceive that I’m experiencing a hard time.

In any case, on a “conventional” day, maybe I’m not all that alarm. Or then again I’m searching just for enormous issues. Anyway, what leaves me speechless? More subtle stuff:

the doubt that someone in particular doesn’t care for me

my continuous judgment against myself for being overweight or absent minded or not exactly sufficiently fashionable or some other zone in which I have evaluated myself as insufficient

the blame that won’t leave, since despite everything I haven’t restored that telephone call

the uneasy feeling I have not tried to name or address since it’s, well, uneasy

the occasion or duty I’ve added to my timetable without observing how essential it is and on the off chance that I ought to have acknowledged it

my feeling that God is baffled in me and that the main arrangement is to spend around five hours in petition

Getting unstuck doesn’t involve rolling out a colossal improvement or proclaiming yet one all the more huge guarantee to God or to myself. Getting unstuck involves one little advance forward. What’s more, as a rule the initial step is a genuine registration with yourself. When you understand, late morning, that you’re wasting your time, feeling stuck, attempt this procedure or some variant of it:

Get peaceful with yourself for a couple of minutes. Ask, What feeling am I feeling? Name that feeling.

Presently ask, Why am I feeling this? What is this feeling appended to? Appeal to God for the acumen to recognize the discussion (a somewhat sharp trade with a partner ten minutes prior) or the conviction (I’m not [blank] enough.) or the stress (Is that check going to bob?).

Pick one move you can make to check what’s happening. Replay that disagreeable working environment discussion from more separation. Maybe you feel collapsed in light of the fact that that individual truly was unkind or out of line, in which case you can request that God enable you to process these all around established emotions or even return to the individual and attempt to clear up what’s extremely going on. On the off chance that you feel that you are insufficient, at that point get even minded about it. Has any other individual brought up that you’re missing—or is there any proof at all that you miss the mark? If not, it’s a great opportunity to reveal to yourself reality. (I’m turning misrepresentations once more, which just neutralizes me. Master, pardon me for going down that street once more. Help me consider myself to be you see me.) If the financial balance is a stress, plan one stage of activity, and request fortifications if essential.

Pushing ahead so regularly includes focusing on what is as opposed to what we envision or dread. When you feel yourself coming to a standstill, enable that stop to trigger some on-the-spot mindfulness.

St. Ignatius exhorted individuals to “act against” whatever obstructed their otherworldly advancement. It isn’t sufficient to guarantee oneself an unfortunate casualty to lie, hardship, or barricades. The Holy Spirit is our ally, and we have the ability to use sound judgment and make particular move. In this way, when false and terrible self-talk is attacking your means, utilize genuine words and pictures to battle it. When you feel overpowered by an errand, break it into littler undertakings, and begin with one of them. At the point when your profound situated emotions are hauling you to a stop, confront them with valor. God structured us to encounter a scope of feelings, since life requires them. They are not moral decisions but rather essential pieces of information. Grasp a hint, and search for whatever is left of the story. It’s your story, all things considered. You can claim it and work with it—and God gives the beauty to do only that.



In the event that you have been a Christian for any measure of time, you realize that profound enthusiasm, sight, and affections back and forth movement. On occasion our feeling of otherworldly substances can be solid and lively; different occasions, our hearts feel like lead weights and we wind up aching for God to visit us by and by and bring refreshment (Psalm 85:4-7). These seasons are generally alluded to as times of “profound dry spell” or “otherworldly dryness,” and discover imply articulation in a significant number of the Psalms. David frequently shouted out to God in times where his spirit appeared residue, and he longed to be invigorated by the nearness of the Lord (Psalm 13; Psalm 63). Different Psalmists communicated their aching to have their dry spirits to be renewed by the Lord (Psalm 42). The individuals who have tasted of the integrity of Christ comprehend being without that taste; it abandons us arguing, “illuminate my eyes, keeping in mind that I rest the rest of death” (Psalm 13:3)

Profound dry season, however a persevering and unwelcome guest isn’t something with which we should always live. There are Biblical means by which we can, by effortlessness, place ourselves in the method for refreshment; we can be reestablished to by and by feeling the delight of our salvation. However, this can just happen on the off chance that we can recognize why we may encounter otherworldly dryness so we can make the suitable move. Because of this, I might want to propose a couple of reasons we might encounter a period of a profound dry spell and give the connecting cures.

Unchecked Lust

Diminish’s notice couldn’t be more unequivocal: “Keep away from physical desires which take up arms against the spirit” (I Peter 2:11). Debased considerations and newly developed dreams will just dull our feeling of profound things; that is the thing that Peter implies when he discloses to us that desire “takes up arms against the spirit.” Harboring desire contaminates our still, small voice, encourages our corrupt substance, and shrivels our otherworldly essentialness. On the off chance that is encountering the attacks of a profound dry spell, it might be on account of we are engaging our psyches with desire and sustaining our wicked wants with suggestive motion pictures, magazines, web destinations, or by essentially visiting the neighborhood shopping center. The main cure called for here is earnest admission and contrition (Proverbs 28:13; I John 1:9). So as to discover our spirits by and by captivated with the delight of our salvation, we should admit these wrongdoings and abandon them (Psalm 51:1-12), making plans to never again make any arrangement for the substance (Romans 13:14).


Jesus, in going up against the Pharisees’ longing for self-praise, gives a significant knowledge with respect to how pride identifies with confidence. The Pharisees were not able to see reality and magnificence of Christ since they were beguiled by their own brilliance and adored getting acclaim from men. Jesus asks them, “How might you accept when you get eminence from each other and don’t look for the transcendence that originates from the main God” (John 5:44)? Sparing confidence was prevented by their pride. What’s more, despite the fact that this entry talks particularly of pride discouraging sparing confidence, I figure we can securely apply this guideline to our lives as Christians: pride murders confidence in Jesus. On the off chance that we are sustaining self-esteem, looking for acclaim and thankfulness from our companions, our assemblage, our educators, our chief, or the individuals who read our web journals, we will discover rapidly that “God restricts the pleased” (James 4:6). Our spirits will wither as we fill them with the grandness that originates from man. Then again, abandoning ourselves and our notorieties to commend Christ no matter what will achieve otherworldly reestablishment since “[God] offers effortlessness to the humble.”

Love of Money

There is additionally an immediate correlation between our connection to stuff and our capacity to see the eminence of God. Jesus interfaces our physical look with our otherworldly sight in Matthew 6:19-23. In sections 19-21, Christ teaches us to save enduring fortunes in paradise as opposed to impermanent wealth here on earth. Regardless of whether we do this or not will significantly affect our affections, for “where [our] treasure is, there [our] heart will be too.” Jesus proceeds with, “The eye is the light of the body. So if your eye is solid, your entire body will be loaded with light, however, in the event that your eye is awful, your entire body will be brimming with murkiness” (vv. 22-23). At the end of the day, in the event that we are settled upon the sparkle of natural wealth, the brilliance God’s transcendence can’t sparkle into our souls and we will just endure profound thirst, not immersion. The arrangement here is to begin taking our eyes of natural wealth. This is frequently helped through supplication and by standard and predictable providing for our places of worship, devoted gospel services, to poor people and to those in require. Isaiah 58:10-11 is empowering in such manner,

On the off chance that you spill yourself out for the hungry and fulfill the longing of the tormented, at that point will your light ascent in the dimness and your anguish be as the afternoon. Furthermore, the LORD will manage you constantly and fulfill your craving in seared places, and make your bones solid; and you will resemble a watered garden, similar to a spring of water whose waters don’t come up short.

An absence of Bible Reading, Meditation, and Prayer

When we disregard Bible perusing, contemplation, and supplication, we are cutting ourselves off from fundamental sustenance for our spirits. It is difficult to flourish profoundly without sustaining our brains and hearts with God’s Word. Song 1 helps us to remember the advantages of contemplation,

Favored is the man who strolls not in the direction of the evil, or obstructs miscreants, nor sits in the singe of scoffers, however, his joy is in the law of the Lord, and on his law, he thinks day and night. He resembles a tree planted by floods of water, that yields its organic product in its season, and its leaf do not shrivel, in all that he does, he succeeds (vv. 1-3)

Then again, our leaf will shrink on the off chance that we are not planting ourselves close to the nurturing surges of God’s Word. This update is particularly imperative for those of us to incline toward administration and who want to remain occupied and beneficial. Despite the fact that it regards be occupied and continually possessing large amounts of crafted by the Lord (I Corinthians 15:58), our work can wind up unfilled, inhumane, and sapped of intensity in the event that we are not powering ourselves with the otherworldly nourishment that originates from God’s Word. We have to battle to set aside standard time to peruse, ruminate, and ask over Scripture. It is likewise helpful to retain Scripture with the goal that we can get refreshment from Biblical truth whenever amid the day. On the off chance that we decline to drink from the well of God’s Word all the time, we should just expect dry ground and wilted takes off.

A lot of Time Indoors

It is anything but difficult to perceive any reason why obtrusive sins like desire, pride, and the adoration for cash can obstruct profound energy and love. It isn’t so natural to perceive the unobtrusive impacts another way of life propensities have on our energy and imperativeness. One territory that I find gets little consideration is the part of the creation in keeping up our otherworldly wellbeing. In any case, if the sky proclaims the magnificence of God (Psalms 19:1), and in the event that we are revived by observing God’s eminence, it would just bode well to go outside with a specific end goal to view that radiance! On occasion I can actually feel my confidence resuscitated as I spend a couple of minutes gazing toward the glory of a starry evening sky, loaded up with unimaginable articulations of intensity and imagination. I can discover refreshment in a basic climb or walk. Also, I don’t think this is just on the grounds that I “love the outside.” I cherish the outside, not on the grounds that I can get REI profit credits, but rather in light of the fact that I can see grandness; and seeing this wonder has frequently served to reestablish my tired soul.

Absence of Exercise

This ties in with the last point yet have a place in its own particular classification since one doesn’t really should be outside keeping in mind the end goal to get work out. Presently, keeping in mind that this sound unspiritual and more like I am recommending things that are just helpful to those of a specific physiological cosmetics, let me have Don Whitney say something regarding this regularly ignored yet imperative point,

Our bodies are not only expendable holders for our unceasing spirits. God could have made us be incorporeal spirits, living perpetually in a condition like the spirits in Heaven live while sitting tight for revived bodies… But He made us be finished as a solidarity of body and soul. . . . One of the manners in which the body can have a constructive outcome upon the spirit is through recreational physical movement. Since most profound practices [disciplines: perusing, composing, examine, contemplation, etc.] are by definition otherworldly and not extremely physical, if our everyday work is generally mental and stationary then there’s little-assorted variety in the sort of jolts we encounter. Furthermore, the dullness of that can decrease the effect of our profound practices. The assortment that recreational physical activity gives to the cerebrum cells and muscle strands of a body may invigorate the spirit that abides in it (Simplify Your Spiritual Life)

Many will locate their profound imperativeness recharged by just going on a thirty-moment walk or run, or by taking a dip, or by riding their bicycle, or by climbing a portion of the trails close to their home. I am regularly astonished at how a tad of activity benefits me rationally and profoundly. Maybe you are seeking after the Lord, embarrassing sin, customary in Bible perusing and supplication, but then discover your spirit dry and dusty—perhaps you ought to go on a run.

Disregard of Responsibilities

When we pick sluggishness over industriousness, this can regularly prompt profound dryness, even sorrow. What’s more, this procedure, for the most part, sustains itself: lethargy will make profound dryness; when we are profoundly dry and discouraged, we are typically not intensely inspired to seek after the determination. However, it is exactly now that we have to break the cycle. We were made to work—when we subvert this key part of our personhood, we will end up profoundly dry and disappointed. Apathy never fulfills. That is one motivation behind why Scripture is loaded with charges to seek after persistence.

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful, But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” (Psalm 1:1-3)

According to the above text, one who delights in the law of the Lord is “blessed.” It is his primary focus. He meditates on it day and night. It is a source of refreshment and life to him. He becomes as a tree that is planted by a river because the word of God makes his life fruitful and productive.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus describes him as a person who will “hunger and thirst for righteousness” (Matthew 5:6). He considers receiving and giving instruction in God’s word as one of his greatest blessings. Learning and/or teaching the law of God is an activity he eagerly anticipates and thoroughly enjoys. Therefore, he values those times when his fellow-saints assemble for study and worship — knowing he will be with people who, like him, respect and adore the word of God.

Nehemiah 8:1-8 Is An Example of Proper Attitude Toward the Word of God

After their return from Babylonian captivity, the people of Judah set about to restore worship to God in Jerusalem. In Nehemiah 8, they asked Ezra the scribe to read the law of God to them. He assembled all the people, opened the book of the law before them, and then read distinctly from it to make sure the assembled crowd understood its message. The people, when beckoned, willingly assembled. They stood when the book of the law was opened — a show of reverence. Standing from daybreak to midday, they praised God for His word and then fell on their faces worshiping Him.

Whether proclaiming the word or receiving instruction from it, we should have the same willingness to assemble, the same reverence and respect, and the same praise for our God.

Acts 10:33 Is Another Example

Having summoned Peter to preach the message of God to him and his family, Cornelius told him of their willingness to hear him preach the gospel of Christ. Cornelius’ attitude — a model for all — caused him to:

  • Send for one knowledgeable in God’s word.
  • Assemble his family to hear what Peter would proclaim.
  • Realize that God was present and that everything was being said and done before Him.
  • Be ready to hear all things God had commanded.

What We Must Be and Do

If we are going to have the proper attitude toward the word of God, therefore, we must:

  • Have good and honest hearts (Luke 8:15).
  • Allow the word of God to “prick” our hearts (Acts 2:37).
  • Gladly receive the word (Acts 2:40).
  • Be discerning hearers (Acts 17:11).
  • Be eager hearers (Matthew 5:6; Acts 10:33).
  • Desire to hear and know all of the word (Acts 10:33).
  • Desire only the word of God (Matthew 15:9).

What is your attitude toward the word of God? What should it be? Make sure it is what the Lord would have it to be.

Shortly after Simon Peter made his confession to Jesus (Matthew 16:13-20 – NKJV), the gospel account next records the following exchange between Master and disciple:

“From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, ‘Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!’ But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men’” (Matthew 16:21-23 – NKJV).

At first reading, we might think that Jesus’ reply to Peter seems harsh. After all, Peter loved and revered Jesus — he had plainly confessed his faith in Jesus as the Christ. The very idea that someone would harm Jesus, much less kill Him, was unthinkable to Peter. He was willing to take up arms (John 18:10) and even sacrifice his own life (Matthew 26:35) to prevent any aggression against the Son of God. Most of us would be delighted to have someone as concerned for our well-being. Why then does Jesus upbraid Peter so sharply, calling him “an offense,” even referring to the apostle metaphorically as “Satan”? (Matthew 16:23 – NKJV).

To answer this question, let us carefully observe the latter part of Jesus’ rebuke:

“You are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

Jesus did not deny Peter’s love for Him, but He recognized that love, to a certain degree, was a selfish one. After listening to the teachings of Jesus for three years, one would think that Peter would have understood God’s plan and purpose in sending His Son required His death as a sacrifice for the sins of others. Even if that fact were not entirely clear to the apostle, something else should have been — if the Lord said something had to happen in order for His will to be accomplished — that was exactly the way it had to happen (cf. Isaiah 55:10-11 – NKJV). There could be no room for argument, compromise, or second-guessing.

There’s no question that Peter believed in Jesus’ mission (Matthew 10:5-6 – NKJV; cf. Matthew 15:24; Matthew 18:11; Luke 19:10), but he wanted to see that mission accomplished on terms suitable to him. He desired salvation, but he didn’t want Jesus to suffer and die to make that salvation possible — even if God said it was necessary (Hebrews 10:5-10 – NKJV; cf. Psalm 40:6-8 – NKJV; Matthew 26:39 – NKJV; John 4:34 – NKJV; John 5:30 – NKJV; John 6:38 – NKJV). Peter’s motivation to preserve the life of the Lord he so loved, would seem noble in our eyes. However, Jesus wanted him to understand that no motive is noble if it conflicts with God’s divine plan!

In today’s so-called religious world, we see many folks who are mindful of the things of men rather than of God. Their motives often appear worthwhile because they say they do not want anyone to be lost. However, they tell folks their sins are forgiven and their souls saved when they have not obeyed God’s commands of repentance and baptism (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; 1 Peter 3:21). Focusing only on the happiness of people, they offer them worldly diversions, even though these things are not according to God’s will (Colossians 2:18-23 – NKJV).

They want people to attend church services, so they make worship an attractive spectacle instead of humble obeisance to the Lord (John 4:24 – NKJV; 1 Corinthians 10:31 – NKJV; Colossians 3:16-17 – NKJV; cf. Micah 6:8 – NKJV; 1 Samuel 15:22 – NKJV). They don’t want to offend anyone, so they permit women to lead in worship despite God’s prohibitions in that regard (1 Corinthians 14:34-38; 1 Timothy 2:11-12) and justify those who unrepentantly engage in immorality (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Galatians 5:19-21).

Jesus’ words to Peter prove that even the most sincere individual can be sincerely wrong when that sincerity is not fully subject to God’s will. Peter’s love for Jesus could not be permitted to supplant the Father’s righteous plan for mankind’s salvation (cf. 1 Corinthians 2:7-8 – NKJV). We would be wise to learn from Peter’s error, and remember that God’s work can only be done God’s way (Matthew 7:21-23), lest He say to us, “Get behind Me, Satan!” (Matthew 16:23 – NKJV).

In this article, let us briefly look at twelve types of givers and types of giving in the Bible:

1) The Willing GiverAbraham, who offered his only son (Genesis 22:1-19).

2) The Big Little Giver – The widow, who in giving two mites, gave all she had (Mark 12:42-44).

3) The Stingy Giver – Saul, who wanted to offer the spoils of the Amalekites (1 Samuel 14:17-23).

4) The Sacrificial Giver – David, who refused to give that which cost him nothing (2 Samuel 24:24).

5) The Covetous Givers – Ananias and Sapphira, who held back part of the price of their possession pretending to give all (Acts 5:1-10).

6) The Consecrated Givers – The Macedonians, who first gave of themselves to the Lord (2 Corinthians 8:1-5).

7) The Life Givers – Peter and John, who had neither silver or gold, but instead gave life to the lame man (Acts 3:1-9).

8) The Voluntary Giver – Zacchaeus, who gave of his goods to feed the poor without being asked (Luke 19:1-9).

9) The Reward Givers – Those who gave to be seen of men. They had their only reward here on earth (Matthew 6:2).

10) The Unpretentious Giver – The Samaritan, who made no show of his giving (Luke 10:25-37).

11) The Perfumed Givers – The Philippians, whose gifts were “an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God” (Philippians 4:18).

12) The Greatest Giver – God, who gave His only begotten Son for you and me that we might be saved (John 3:16-17).

In this list of types of giving in the Bible, which giver best describes you? Let’s seriously think about this list of various types of givers and then strive to give our best to the Lord and His service. The Lord gave us the best that heaven had to offer, the sacrifice of His Son (Hebrews 9:11-14; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
