Ecclesiastes 9:10 "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might".

These are the good things you need in your pantry for daily use. The first item is at your eye level. It is God's book for life, the Bible. It should be read and studied each day. It is to be your staple for all day. Right along it is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity with God the Father, and Jesus the Son. The Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us when we ask Jesus to pardon our sins. It is the Holy Spirit that leads us in our daily life and decisions we make. Keep your sins confessed to allow the Holy Spirit to guide you. Then we find our Christian friends sitting right there. They encourage us and can also be used to steer us away from ungodly behaviors. Talk with them freely. Next I see a bottle that contains the circumstances of daily life. Every day we are either preparing or repairing something! Be aware that Satan is daily trying to get us off God's path and turn us away from God. Be alert - your adversary the devil is walking around as a lion and seeking to devour us. Put up your shield of faith in the circumstances of life! Have some good Christian books and music CDs on your shelf as well. Choose them wisely and use as needed. The last two items are your girl friends and your quiet time. We all need girl time - be sure to spend it with quality Christian ladies. And as for your quiet time with Jesus, it is a must if you are to survive in this wicked world. You may think you don't have time, but you just can't live a victorious Christian life without a quiet time with the Lord. We need refueling daily. Now, which section are you going to keep and which are you going to throw in the trash? Do it with all your might!
