• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Scriptural keys to success in life (4)

'Do everything written in it. Then you will be...successful.' JOSHUA 1:8


Have you ever wondered why God refers to His word as 'laws'? Because laws are meant to govern, guide, and guard us. Without order, all you have is chaos and confusion. Imagine living in a world where 12 inches no longer make one foot and 2 + 2 doesn't make 4. God established His laws for your good.

When you disobey them you suffer; when you honour them you succeed. Furthermore, His laws are not an a la carte menu; you can't pick what you like and leave the rest. At the beginning of Joshua's career God gave him some foundational advice about His law: 'Do everything written in it. Then you will be...successful.' If you want to be successful in life, talk about, think regularly about, and live your life according to God's laws. Why? Because ultimately your character is more important than your career. Your career is what you do, your character is what you are!

Many people with talent make it into the limelight, but the ones who have neglected to develop strong character rarely stay there long. Absence of strong character eventually topples them. Why? Because you cannot climb beyond the limitations of your character! John Maxwell writes: 'Talented people are sometimes tempted to take shortcuts; character prevents that.

Talented people may feel superior and expect special privileges; character helps them to know better. Talented people are praised for what others see them build; character builds what's inside them. Talented people have the potential to be difference makers; character makes the difference in them. Talented people are a gift to the world; character protects that gift.'

wondering

I was wonder what my chacter and talent was, don't seem to have any talents and my character isn't very pleasing to me. I know I am who God says I am by what He calls me, but isn't visible inside of me therefore nor does it shine outwardly either. I want change, but scared of it as well, after living a certain way 4 so long the harder it will be to reprogram my thought life.
