“Don’t let anyone under pressure to give in to evil say, “God is trying to trip me up.” God is impervious to evil, and puts evil in no one’s way. The temptation to give in to evil comes from us and only us. We have no one to blame but the leering, seducing flare-up of our own lust. Lust gets pregnant, and has a baby: sin! Sin grows up to adulthood, and becomes a real killer.”
James 1:13-15 MSG

A Superficial Experience Not Enough, November 20
“There is always danger of being satisfied with a superficial work; there is always danger that souls will not anchor themselves in God, but be content to drift hither and thither, the sport of Satan's temptations...The work of the Spirit of God in the heart will develop true penitence, which will not end with confession, but will work a decided reformation in the daily life. There will be manifested an earnestness, a perseverance, and a determination that can be properly represented by agonizing...The fact that iniquity abounds, that we are surrounded by infidels and skeptics, or by professed Christians who have a name to live, and are dead, is no reason why one of us should be swept away by the current toward perdition. Because there is an almost universal forsaking of God, there is the greater need that we stand firm and loyal...We must gather the divine rays from the Sun of Righteousness, and reflect them to the world. In the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, we must show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. Nothing but a deep personal experience will enable us to stand the test of the trials and temptations we shall meet in the Christian warfare. Too often we feel well when everything goes smoothly; but when doubts assail the soul, and Satan whispers his suggestions, our defense is gone, and we yield quickly to the arts of the tempter, with scarcely an effort to resist and repulse him, It is not enough to have good impulses. The soul must be barricaded by prayer and study the Scriptures. Armed with these weapons, Jesus encountered our wily foe on the field of battle, and overcame him. We may all conquer in His strength; but it will not answer for us to suppose that we can dispense with His help. He says, “Without me ye can do nothing.” John 15:5. But no truly humble soul who walks in the light as Christ is in the light, will be ensnared by Satan's deceptive devices.” — Our High Calling (OHC 330.1 - 330.4)
One minute Wednesdays
Why you don’t need ‘motivation’
➡️ Follow @maxstrengthcoach
💪🏻 Welcome to something new I’m trying called one minute Wednesdays. One minute of unedited Max cutting straight through the BS.
💪🏻 It’s really common to hear people saying they need motivation, or they wish they were more motivated to get to the gym. In my personal experience the majority of people who look for 1-1 personal training do so because on some level they ‘NEEDS someone to motivate them.
💪🏻 Motivation isn’t something the comes from without. If you need to someone else to motivate you, what you’re really saying is you want to pay someone to care more about your results than you do.
💪🏻 Motivation comes from within. If you really want to lose that weight/gain that muscle/win that medal you need to find your own reasons and make them a priority. You need to want your results more than the fitness professional you’re hiring otherwise you’re wasting their time and your money.
💪🏻 I was lucky enough to have an amazing coach when I was in my late teens/early 20’s and they greatest lesson he taught me was of perseverance. If you want to succeed you need to preserve. Because the reality is you’re gonna fail over and over and over again until you succeed. If you aren’t internally motivated you aren’t EVER gonna achieve your true potential.
HAPPY WEDNESDAY FAMBAM!
🥳 We've said it before and we will say it again... YOU 👏🏼 ARE 👏🏼 NOT 👏🏼 A 👏🏼 VICTIM 👏🏼
Victim mentally will leave you with no direction, power, or control over your life.
"Why does this always happen to me?" "Just my luck!" "It's a Mondaaay..." "It's just not my day"
All these are examples of victim mentality phases. 🤔 Think of a boat without a captain or any sails... It is at the mercy of the ocean's waves. 🌊 It may or may not get to its destination... This is a life with a victim mentality.
Today is a NEW DAY!!! Go M A K E today the BEST 👏🏼 DAY 👏🏼 EVER!
(step one, don't say those phrases today! 😉) #Truth#ChainBreakers#Wednesday#redefineyourself#Morning
Kind of cute when they get so mad... 😝 If your child ever packs up her Frozen Jeep and peels out of the driveway, don’t worry, she’ll be back in a few for some snacks! 😂 Via the very funny @mommy.meds (formerly mimi_memerson) Follow @mommy.meds for more LOLs on the regular!

Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV): But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
