10 Principles For Godly Living
1. Develop a habit of thanking God for big and little things through the day.
Thanksgiving will help open our eyes to the work of God in our lives and the lives of others. Psa. 100
2. Be patient both with yourself and with others.
You will mess up, so will others. But our failures are not the end when God is around. Psa. 37:23-24
3. Pray about everything.
Pray when things go well. Pray when things are tough. Phil. 4:6
Bring Him into every aspect of your life. We change ourselves when we seek His will in every aspect of
our lives. We change the world when we pray for the needs of others.
4. Trust Him.
Once we pray, we often doubt because God does not audibly reply. But having asked, we need to learn
to trust that He has heard our prayers and He will guide our decisions and our ways. Prov. 3:5-6
5. Look for the God-signs in life.
Those events where God answered prayer, or God protected you, celebrate with praise and
thanksgiving. Be like Mary the mother of Jesus, and treasure them in your heart. Remember them and
let them be a signpost in your life, places where you can look back and say: God was here. Jacob did
this when he met God; he erected an altar and said, “Surely God is in this place”. Gen. 28:16-19.
