Verse of the Day: Psalm 73:26
My flesh and my heart may fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
As humans we are not perfect, we make mistakes. No matter how much we want to do better we sometimes fail, we sometimes let God and ourselves down. But we serve a mighty God and no matter how many times we fall, he picks us up. He continues to love us because His love never fails. He loves us not because of who we are but because of who He is.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 26:39
And going a little farther, He fell on His face and prayed, saying, my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless; not as I will, but as you will.
Jesus gave us the example of how to pray when going through something difficult. He prayed to the Father saying, if it’s possible let this difficult situation pass from me but let it be what you want, not what I want. God knows everything from the beginning to the end we just need to trust Him and His will.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 19:11
A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
Wise people are patient when others offend them, purposely or not. Don’t be so easily offended, instead show the offender God’s love and forgive them as God forgives your offenses. Hurt people, hurt people, wise people overlook offenses.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 119:15
I will meditate on your precepts, and contemplate your ways.
Do you know what a precept is? It is a command, a general rule intended to regulate behavior or thought. Instead of focusing on your problems or things that upset, disappoint, or annoy you think about the way God wants you to deal with them, how he wants you to behave. God’s ways are always better than your ways.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 7:12
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
People think the “Golden Rule” was made up by man, but it’s actually biblical. It’s so basic and fundamental that we teach it to our children yet, we, as adults sometimes forget the principle in our own lives. Treat others with fairness and mercy just as you would like to be treated.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 19:26
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
God created the heavens and the earth, how much more can He do than what you see as impossible. Stop putting human limitations on a God that has no limit to what He can do. Have faith and remember that with God ALL things are possible!
Verse of the Day: Micah 6:8
What does the Lord require of you? To do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
This is what God wants, for you to treat others fairly, behaving morally righteous, showing compassion and forgiveness even to those who don’t deserve it. Be respectful, gentle, and live modestly, not thinking too highly of yourself. You don’t always have to behave the way you feel, but you should always behave in a way that pleases God.
