Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

good wins

Good vs. evil.

Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.”  Psalm 34:14 (NASB)

Overcome evil with good.   (Romans 12:21)
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.” John 10:10-11 (NASB)
 
There is a thief and he is out to destroy.   However,  Jesus came to give us life and not just an ok life but an abundant life.  Which voice are you listening to?  The thief or the shepherd. 
Obviously we should listen to the shepherd.   Faith come by hearing and hearing the Word of God.  (Romans 10:17)    When is the last time you picked up the Bible and read it?   Don’t stop there,  apply what you read to your day to day living.     As we continue to grow in godliness and our faith increases — we draw closer and closer to God.  (1 Tim 6:11,
Greater is He that is in us, than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4) We need not fear the thief.
 
Over and over and over again the Bible tells us to not fear. We are like sheep and Jesus is the good shepherd. He will take care of us. He is an ever-present help in whatever we are facing. (Psalm 46:1) He will make a way where there seems to be no way. (Isaiah 43:19) He is for us! (Psalm 118:6) He brings beauty out of ashes. (Isaiah 61:3) He is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
I’ve read the end of the book and good wins!  God wins!  God is greater!
 
The Lord is my shepherd!  Psalm 23:1
