Encouragement Note: January 2018, Spiritual Tuneup

Spiritual and Physical tune up, by Christopher Underwood

“Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance. ― Brian Tracy

Everyone expects the car, the train, the airplane to be kept in tune. These artificial items will eventually fail if you no one puts air in the tires, never changes the oil, or forgets to add fuel.

We do the same each day as we tune our hair to be in alignment when we wash our hair, comb it, twirl, spray it, tease it and blow dry it not necessarily in that order.

And we pray to God and study a portion of the word to add to our faith, virtue, knowledge and more so that even when we sin, our forgiveness is offered when we repent so we do not fall away forever.

We all need to find better alignment as followers of Christ. We all need more to run smooth spiritually and that really comes through the word of God.

I want to offer a few tune up scriptures. Hopefully these scripture tune ups will strike a positive cord with you each and every day.

Memory verse 1 Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. ☀️
Memory verse 2 Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. ☀️
Memory verses 3 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. ☀️
Memory verse 12 Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil
Memory verse 17 Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments. ☀️
Memory verse 25 Romans 12:3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.☀️
Memory verse 52 1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Memory verse 65 Proverbs 22:2 The rich and poor meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all.
Memory verse 106 Proverbs 19:11 Good sense makes one slow to anger,and it is his glory to overlook an offense.

Finally

Revelation 21:3,4

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Make a plan to stay in tune with the benefits of the Lord who hears our prayers, knows our needs, and can do more with you and I beyond our imagination.

God with tune up benefits will yield the best alignment of our souls in our walk to eternal life.

Psalm 68:19, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.”
