Verse of the Day: Philippians 3:10
I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death
There is a difference in knowing about someone and knowing someone and there is a difference between knowing what someone does and knowing who someone is. You may have known about Jesus all your life but until you seek Him with all of your heart you won’t really know Him as your personal Savior. You won’t have a personal relationship with Him until you start spending time with Him. The more time you spend with Him the more you will become like Him. Knowing the Bible is one thing but knowing the author is another.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 14:1
The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
A wise woman builds her house established on God’s Word and with God as the foundation. She cares for her family, she encourages them and she leads by example by being an honorable and virtuous woman of God.

Verse of the Day: James 1:12
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
There will be trials, there will be tough times, but God is with you and if you don’t give up you will be blessed. Be patient in afflictions, keep believing and keep praying. It’s no surprise that we will face adversity Jesus said we will have troubles but to take heart because He has overcome the world. So when these troubles come stand firm in your faith and trust in the Lord. Stay strong, you are not alone, and it will all be worth it in the end for when that day comes you will receive the crown of life, which is a gift from God.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 68:19
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
Wake up with praise on our lips, focused on God. Start your day right with prayer and receive the spiritual blessings the Lord has in store for you today. Each new day is loaded with blessings of love, joy, peace, mercy, grace, redemption, forgiveness and salvation! Praise the Lord for each day He takes care of our needs and bears our burdens.

Verse of the Day: Psalm 66:18
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my voice in prayer.
We all fall short of the glory of God. We are not perfect but what we do when we fail God makes all the difference. Put aside your pride, acknowledge your sin and turn from it. Don’t let sin come between you and God. Don’t let sin destroy your fellowship with Him. Humble yourself before the Lord and confess your sins, ask for forgiveness and He will hear your prayers.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 12:36
But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.
Your words matter, they have the power to hurt or help. Sometimes we say things we don’t mean and sometimes we say things without thinking of the consequences of what we’ve said. Once words come out of your mouth they cannot be taken back or unheard. We need to be careful with our words because we will have to give an account for them someday. Use your words to encourage one another, use them for good not evil, let them be a testament to your Christian character.
