" Always be cheerful. Pray without ceasing. Give thanks in all things, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Don' t quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. But examine all things; hold fast to what is good; abstain from all evil. " 1 Thessalonians 5: 16- 22
Always be happy and pray without ceasing
I challenge you to speak ill of your neighbor while you pray. Your time is running out on this earth. Don' t lose it anymore. You will no longer cry at your spouse or children if you pray without ceasing.
Don' t turn off the Spirit
Many Christians sadden the Holy Spirit by a bad attitude of heart, by compromises, sins which break the intimacy with the Lord. Others have a spirit of religious control which conceals a jealous and bitter orphan state of mind.
Don' t despise prophecies
The prophecies you receive from each other are of great help. It is terrible to see that we discourage spiritual gifts with accusations " the God told me" … God does not speak to you? That would worry me if you were. If a spiritual baby gives you a joke, is it a big deal? All the kids are talking nonsense. Do not crush them, be patient, full of love and a teacher.
Examine all things
Indeed if we must accept the prophecies, it is also on the basis of discernment. I knew a preacher who had the same prophecy from town to town: " Someone is going to make a big financial transaction and you are going to tithe me and God will bless you…"
Also pay attention to the mixtures between soul and Spirit, religious salads, foreign doctrines that cause division.
Remember what is good
You don' t need to worry about what' s bad. Why not use your energy, your time, to retain only what is good? God is so good! ! ! He will bless you again. Keep good relationships, separate yourself from bad influences, bad habits, bad expressions.
Abstain from all kinds of evil
You don' t have to jump with both feet into some fresh dog poop that you meet on the sidewalk, do you?
Say with me:
" Father I choose happiness. I adore you and I will put into practice YOUR word in the name of Jesus. "
