BIBLE: COMPASS OR GPS?

Updated: Jun 1, 2019

SELF-COUNSELLING: an OVERview

PERSONAL EXERCISE

WHAT:

1. What problems/difficulties/concerns and anxieties do you face right now?

2. Which ones are more important than the others? Arrange them from mild to severe...

3. What or who do you consider to be the cause of these issues? WHAT or WHO are the main causes or onsets of these problems?



HOW are you dealing or coping with these issues and matters?


Problems, afflictions, threats, anxiety, issues... Are these EXTERNAL or INTERNAL

factors...?


Prayer of serenity... "... wisdom to know the difference" between what you can

do and what you can...


WISDOM + SELF-care/initiative/action/first aid...


Procrastination is deadly..., self-inflicted... on all your most important matters in your life: relationships, family, profession, business, health... FAITH... What are the likely or certain outcome of my non-action/intervention... (diet, habits, exercise, withdrawal from some things) as spouse, kinship, employer/ee, parent...


PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY... you are your best friend or enemy...


Proverbs 28:13 He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.


1 Corinthians 13 :11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. 13 So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.


2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and

godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and

excellence, 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises,

that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world

because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature. 5 For this very

reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with

knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with

steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly

affection, and brotherly affection with love. 8 For if these things are yours and

abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of

our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For whoever lacks these things is blind and shortsighted

and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. 10 Therefore, brethren,

be the more zealous to confirm your call and election, for if you do this you will

never fall; 11 so there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal

kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Prevention is better than cure.

Know how to limit the harm of mistakes-misspoke-misunderstanding; wrong

moves-wrong words-wrong contexts...


BIBLE KNOWLEDGE... Bible: compass or GPS?

Known causes do not pose a problem or threat; counselling is for the purpose of bringing you to consciousness, understanding and focus on this matter... Prayer (looking to GOD) and decision-making....
