Bible Blessings® Offers Christian gifts to take the shield of faith April 08 2014

Bible Blessings Christian Gifts Family Christian Stores

 

Bible Blessings® knows Christian gifts are more than luxurious fashion accessories that represent your faith. Christian gifts in other forms allow you to overcome many obstacles in life.

Taking the shield of faith

In Ephesians, we read “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one” 6:16. If you remember during Roman times, a Roman soldier's shield protected him from head to toe.

It was made of iron, upholstered in thick layers of fabric, and saturated in water when going to battle.

Consequently, the flaming arrows of the enemy fizzled on contact. Getting the idea? When you take up the shield of faith,  you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

The gifts of a pure heart

Satan can't penetrate a heart that's pure, saturated in Scripture and fortified by faith. That's why Jesus told Peter that because he prayed for him, his faith would not fail. It's your faith that's under attack.

It's your faith that needs to be fed and nurtured. It's your faith that sustains you in life's battles! Jesus told us to have faith in God. He didn't just say, "Have faith in something bigger than yourself." No, He said, "Have faith in God."

Claim your gifts

If you're under attack today claim this promise that God gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might, He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They will run and not be weary, and they will walk and not faint.

God gives each of us a measure of faith. But you must develop it by building yourself up on your most holy faith. Faith under attack is faith under construction. It's in the battles of life that you discover whether you have nurtured faith or neglected faith!

Bible Blessings® knows the wonderful responsibility of Christian Gifts March 25 2014

Bible Blessings Christian Gifts

 

Bible Blessings® knows Christian gifts come with great responsibility. Being a Christian is not always easy in today’s world, and it is important to remember why we are blessed with the many Christian gifts bestowed upon us because of our faith and belief in our religion.

Finding Blessings and Gifts in unexpected places

Joshua and Caleb faced formidable foes in the Promised Land, and yet what was their response to their enemies? “They are bread for us” Numbers 14:9.

What is bread? It is the staff of life. What happens when you eat bread? You are strengthened by it and you grow by it.

Paul also faced formidable foes. In Corinthians we read Paul’s words: “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries” 1:16:9.

Why don’t gifts come easy to those that believe in Christianity? Because if they were easy, then you would become weak in your effort to work out your faith in God and would be less appreciative of the gifts you do receive. God places obstacles in your path to give you strength.

“Wheaties” is not the breakfast of champions— giants are. God wants you to face your difficulties head-on and depend upon Him to make you a conqueror.

What does it take to strengthen your body? What does it take to build your intellect? What does it take to grow love in relationships?

Indeed, God does amazing and unexplainable things, but there will come a time – or it may have already transpired – when you realize that Christianity doesn’t immediately solve all your problems. Illnesses don’t always go away. Broken relationships don’t always get better. Your income doesn’t miraculously improve thanks to a big fat monetary gift in the mail. Simply put, troubles don’t just up and disappear.

So what does it take? Work. Hard work and a commitment to your faith and sharing your faith. Remember the words in Philippians 2:12-13: “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”

Christian Gifts you don’t have to give up for Lent March 12 2014

Bible Blessings Christian Gifts

 

One of the many Christian gifts we cherish is Easter and the weeks leading up to it. Ash Wednesday occurred last week, signaling the beginning of Lent. So what Christian gifts have you given up for Lent?

Giving up for Lent

Many Christians feel they have to give up something for Lent and end up giving up something that has very little impact on their lives. In the end, we end up giving up something for Lent for all the wrong reasons.

Instead of giving up a gift you cherish, considering giving up one of these five things:

  1. Self-doubt – As you believe it, so shall it be. Let go of the self-doubt and believe God has a plan for you that is beyond anything you could imagine. Remember what is said in Timothy: For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
  2. Self-pity – Hebrews 13:5 tells us, “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’” God comforts us in our sorrow so that we can comfort others with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
  3. Blame – Don’t pass the buck; take responsibility for your actions. Romans tells us, And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
  4. Gossip and Negativity – A waste of time and energy, let go of idle and meaningless gossip and negativity. Proverbs plainly states, Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with a simple babbler. Proverbs 20:19 
  5. Comparison – You have your own unique contribution to make and there is no one else like you. Remember this verse: Galatians 6:4 - But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
This is a season of reflection. The gifts you have been given by God are yours to share. Lent is more than a time to give up one of your cherished gifts. It is a time to give up and let go of the doubt and negative energies in your life and focus on sharing your spiritual gifts with others.

You can have the Christian gifts you want - if you "get understanding" February 21 2014

Bible Blessings Christian Stores Christian Gifts Bible Belts Feel the Faith

 

 

Christian gifts in today’s society sometimes feel like they’re hard to come by. Not everyone understands how to find or even recognize the Christian gifts that are all around them. How do you find them? It’s quite easy once you understand how to “get understanding.”

 

Wisdom is the principle thing, according to Proverbs. Once you get that, you’ll be able to get understanding and appreciate the Christian gifts that are all around you. Follow these six principles to get understanding:

  1. Don’t worry, be happy – Seriously! If you’re doing your best, you have to trust in your faith and know that you will be rewarded.
  2. Don’t hurry – Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity. Take your time, do it right, and reap the benefits.
  3. Pay it forward – Have you heard the phrase “It is better to give than to receive?” It actually is quite true. The next time you are in line at a drive-thru, pay for the order of the person behind you. Stop by your local animal shelter and drop off a few bags of dog or cat food. Patronize businesses that also practice paying it forward.
  4. Believe in the impossible – As you think it, so shall it be. What do you dream of doing? What is on your "bucket list" that you never thought you could accomplish? Your faith, your patience, and your confidence will guide you to achieve your dreams, your goals, and ultimately will help you live a more fulfilling life.
  5. Clear the clutter – Put first things first. Don’t waste your time on trivial matters. Focus on what needs to be done, what can be done, and then work to accomplish those tasks.
  6. Remember, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me” - Don't think that good intentions are an acceptable excuse for doing nothing. Examine your life; are you a "talker" or a "doer?" Get specific about your diet and your devotions, your finances and your family, etc. According to the Bible, “Faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” James 2:17

 

To get understanding is to gain the knowledge and the wisdom to find and cherish the gifts that are all around you in everything you do. Practice these six principles and you will quickly learn how to appreciate those gifts along with joy in many aspects of your everyday life.
