These five principles were part of a series of posts presenting some of the principles/lessons learned in my personal walk as well as while counseling as a biblical specialist. I extend them here with the hope that they will strengthen your confidence in the Scriptures to minister to others as God cares for you.* ❤️
Principle #1: God convicts our hearts to draw us closer to Himself through repentance; He never “guilts” or beats up His kids.
Principle #2: The Battle is real. While Satan intends us harm, God uses disappointment and tragedy for our good–to promote spiritual maturity as we learn to trust Him more.
Principle #3: Whenever you find yourself talking to yourself, you’re probably sinning. Switch gears–and TALK TO GOD INSTEAD!
Principle #4: The Bible is not a cookbook meant to fix problems. The Bible is God’s means of extending Endurance, Encouragement and Hope to the hurting, as well equipping us to do good works.
Principle #5: Resist pity. Pray about everything. Act out of the Compassion of Christ Jesus.
The Triangle Illustration was introduced with Principle #3 but can readily be applied with any of the five:
