Bring all the tithes and I will pour out blessings, rebuke the destroyer and ensure that fruit is produced. Malachi 3: 10-11

To love God do the following:
* Keep the commandments since Jesus said, If you love Me, keep My commandments. (John 14:15) 
* Praise and worship God.

When Jesus was asked, "Who is my neighbor?" (Luke 10:29), He taught the parable of the Good Samaritan to show that your neighbor is anyone who needs your help. (Luke 10:25-37) 

Therefore, love your neighbor by helping someone in need.

8. Love yourself

Love yourself because the second greatest commandment hinges on doing this for you are to love your neighbor just as you love yourself.

To love yourself, do the following:
* Accept yourself as a child of God. 
* Create time to eat, relax and sleep for Jesus said to His disciples, "Come by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while." Because there were many coming and going and they did not even have time to eat. (Mark 6:31)
* Do the things that make you happy as long as they do not break God's commandments. For example if you love reading, create time to read every day.

To spread the Gospel do the following:
* Tell the people around you about Jesus

Christian goal setting for New Year resolutions




To incorporate these Christian practices into your life you have to set them as your New Year resolutions or life goals. 

To do this follow these goal setting steps:

1. Identify your goal

The first step of setting New Year resolutions and other life goals is identifying what you want to achieve.

For example you can decide that you want to pray every day  and read your Bible every day.



2. Create a good goal
The second step of setting New Year resolutions and other life goals is modifying the goals to make them good goals.

A good goal defines the Amount you want to achieve, how Long it will take you to achieve it and How you will get it.

Therefore you can modify your Christian New Year goals to:  I will pray every day for 15 minutes and read 1 chapter of the Bible every day by waking up 1 hour earlier each morning.

For example to achieve your Christian New Year goals, you can create an action plan like the following:

5-6 am Wake up, Bible reading and prayer.

We Are Not Ignorant of His Devices 2nd Edition (2 Corinthians 2:11) uses examples from the Bible to teach you 20 of the strategies the devil uses to attack God’s people. This Christian spiritual warfare book also shows you how to deal with each of those devices so that you can live a more victorious Christian life. 


We are not ignorant of his devices book







We Are Not Ignorant Of His Devices Book Excerpt
Seduction
Seduction is one of the devices that the enemy uses to ensnare the people of God.

We can see a good example of this when Joseph was a slave because Potiphar’s wife Looked longingly at Joseph and she told him, “Sleep with me”. (Genesis 39:7) This woman also used the device of persistence for She spoke to Joseph day after day. (Genesis 39:10)

We can also see another example of seduction when the Israelites were camped in the Moab plains before they entered their Promised Land. King Balak of the Moabites hired Balaam to curse the Israelites but he was unable to curse them for he said, “I have received a command from God to bless and God has blessed them and I cannot reverse it. (Numbers 23:20)

Balaam also said, God has not seen iniquity in the Israelites or seen wickedness in them.” (Numbers 23:21) He therefore came up with a plan to make the Israelites sin by using this device of seduction for the Bible tells us that It was through the counsel of Balaam that the Israelites sinned against God in Peor and this caused the plague. (Numbers 31:16)  

This sin that the Israelites sinned in Peor involved committing harlotry with the Moabite women (Numbers 25:1) and they were also invited to sacrifice to their gods and bow down to them. (Numbers 25:2) As a result of their actions, the Israelites aroused God’s anger and a plague erupted which killed 24,000 of them.

Balaam’s plan of seduction succeeded since 24,000 Israelites died but God also punished the Midianites for He told Moses, “Harass and attack the Midianites because they harassed you with their schemes by seducing you in Peor.” (Numbers 25:16-18)



Bible tips on how to resist seduction like a Christian

How to Deal with Seduction

If you are being attacked with this device of seduction do the following:

Fear God
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10) and Joseph exhibited this wisdom because when Potiphar’s wife seduced him, he asked her, “How can I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” (Genesis 39:9)

We can see from his question that Joseph was not concerned about her husband, his master, finding out because he could have found a way to evade him for as Joseph said, “My master Potiphar does not know what is in this house for he has committed all that he has to my hand.” (Genesis 39:8)  However Joseph knew that God would know and that is why he asked Potiphar’s wife “How can I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” (Genesis 39:9)

Therefore even if you can evade other humans and get away with doing what you are being seduced to do, fear God and do your best not to sin against Him. 


Christian Book Excerpt: We Are Not Ignorant Of His Devices



Look For An Escape
Joseph resisted the temptation because even though Potiphar’s wife was persistent with her advances, “Joseph did not heed her and agree to lie with her or to be with her.” (Genesis 39:10)

To help you resist this temptation you are being seduced with, remind yourself that God is faithful and He will not allow you to be tempted more than you can bear because with each temptation, there will always be a way of escape. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Therefore look for your way to escape the seduction and take it like Joseph Who left his garment in the hand of Potiphar’s wife and fled outside. (Genesis 39:13) Though she used the garment against him when he was accused him of attempted rape, God vindicated Joseph because after he was imprisoned for this crime, God connected him Pharaoh’s butler and blessed him with the wisdom to interpret Pharaoh’s dreams which resulted in him being promoted to be the Prime Minister of Egypt.

If you cannot leave the scene of seduction physically, leave it mentally by meditating on Bible verses like the following:
Abhor what is evil and cling to what is good (Romans 12:9)

God is faithful and He will not allow you to be tempted more than you can bear because with each temptation, there will always be a way of escape. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

We do not have a High Priest Who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses because He was tempted just as we are and yet He was without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace so that we may obtain mercy and grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)

Abraham, What Do You Choose?





Abraham, What Do You Choose?

When Abraham was a very old man and his wife Sarah was an old, barren woman, God told him "I have made you a father of many nations". (Romans 4:17) 

The Bible tells us that Abraham Did not consider his own body already dead since he was around 100 years old or the deadness of Sarah's womb. 

Abraham did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but he was strengthened in faith and giving glory to God while being fully convinced that what God had promised He was also able to perform. (Romans 4:19-22) 


As a result of making the right choices, Abraham Became the father of many nations according to what was spoken. (Romans 4:18)

Therefore if you want to receive the promises of God and miraculous solutions for your problems, emulate the following choices that Abraham made:


Lessons from the Word of God and the Life of Abraham to help you make right choices and solve your problems


Abraham did not choose to think about his limitations
Abraham did not choose to think about his limitations since the Bible tells us that he Did not consider his own body already dead since he was around 100 years old. (Romans 4:19) 

Therefore even if you are as good as dead the way Abraham's body was as good as dead in terms of procreation, do not think about your limitations. 

Make it a point not to meditate about your shortcomings regardless of whether they are physical limitations like diseases you are suffering from or financial limitations like the lack of money or social limitations or any other limitations you may be suffering from. 




Abraham did not choose to think about the limitations of his helpers
Abraham did not choose to think about the limitations of his helpers since the Bible tells us that he Did not consider ... the deadness of Sarah's womb. (Romans 4:19) 

Therefore even if the people who are supposed to help you are barren (poor and unproductive) or impotent (weak and powerless), do not think about their limitations. 

Make it a point not to meditate about their shortcomings regardless of whether they are intellectual limitations like not being educated or physical limitations like being "too old" or financial limitations like not having a job or social limitations like being "different" or any other limitations they may have.




Abraham chose to believe the Word of God
Abraham chose to believe the Word of God since the Bible tells us that He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief. (Romans 4:20)

Therefore choose to believe what God says in His Word.

So, if the Bible verses you are believing for your situation say, "I have made you a father of many nations(Romans 4:17)  decide to believe that you are already a father or mother of many nations.



Abraham chose to believe God wholeheartedly
Abraham chose to believe God wholeheartedly since the Bible tells us that He was fully convinced that what God had promised He was also able to perform(Romans 4:20)

Therefore chose to believe that God can do what He says He can do.

So, if the Bible verses you are believing for your situation say, "I have made you a father of many nations" (Romans 4:17) decide tot believe that God has already made you a father or mother of many nations.



Abraham chose to hope against all hope
Abraham chose to hope against all hope since the Bible tells us that Contrary to hope, he believed in hope(Romans 4:18) This is because his circumstances did not offer him anything to look forward to since his body was as good as dead when it came to procreation and Sarah had been barren even when she was young. 

Therefore even if your current limitations do not give you anything to look forward to, chose to hope in God even if your situation is hopeless when viewed with human eyes. 

So, combine your faith in God and faith in His Word and faith in His ability to do what He says with placing your hope in God that He can change your situation for the better.



Abraham chose to make faith stronger
Abraham chose to make his faith stronger since the Bible tells us that He was strengthened in faith. (Romans 4:20)

Therefore, choose to strengthen your faith. 

To do learn how to do this read How to Strengthen your Faith.

How to strengthen your faith in God


Abraham chose to praise God
Abraham chose to praise God since the Bible tells us that he was Giving glory to God(Romans 4:20)

Therefore chose to praise God as you wait to receive what He has promised to give you.



To learn the Promises of God that you can believe to receive God's protection, provision, healing and help as well as to receive solutions for problems in your finances, family and work, read The Promises of God and Their Conditions


The Promises of God and their Conditions is a Christian self help book that teaches you biblical promises for provision, protection, healing, help, finances, family, future, work and success.
