October 3rd Quentin’s Word
This morning – reading Psalm 34 – some parts really jumped out and I sensed God saying he wanted to encourage one or more to not give up. He is really God BUT we have to seek Him and trust Him. We must not treat God “like another thing we are trying to fix our situation or problem” He is the ONLY way, and until we believe that and reply on God and seek Him truly – which He can see in everyone’s heart, we will continue to suffer defeat, loss and lack!
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. *In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; he saved me from all my troubles. * For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! Fear the Lord, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need. Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing. Come, my children, and *listen to me, and I will teach you to fear the Lord. * Does anyone *want to live a life that is long and prosperous? Then keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies! * Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it. The eyes of the Lord watch over *those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help. * But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil; he will erase their memory from the earth. The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. *He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the broken-hearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. * The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous. not one of them is broken! [07:32, 06/10/2021] Quentin: At the same time Shay shared this: “Bold Faith Moves Beyond Belief.”
Don’t just talk the talk but walk the walk. When bold faith moves beyond belief, we go from just saying Christian things to doing Christian things. When bold faith moves beyond belief, we shift from our Christianity being defined by our church attendance to our Christlikeness. The question to ponder today is, “Does the way I live prove what I believe?”
What would people say about your faith if their only idea of you was the way you live? If someone interviewed your coach, your classmates, your neighbours, and your friends, what would they say about your faith in God? Would they be able to share about the way you live and love like Jesus or would they be struggling to define your beliefs?

This just encouraged me and if feel lead to share with whoever. Are we really walking the talk?
Bless your day 🙏🏻
I sensed it may even be someone who had suicidal thoughts. And those who are discouraged and have felt like giving up. It’s only the lies of the Devil that take you onto the dark places in your mind! God know you, sees you and will hear you. But you must turn to him. He is the light, and He removes darkness when He is allowed to shine on your life!
Read and listen to Psalm 34.
